One thing we can say about the selection of barstools out there today is that it has gotten way better than it was just a few years ago. If you are into modern designs you are in luck as this is one of the fastest growing categories in furniture today. Also many of the available styles are height adjustable and can be used for both bar and counter heights making them very versatile as many homes being built these days have both option. We have assembled some that have made an impression and feature both back, and backless barstool styles which offer their own unique look and comfort level as well as some have the ability to be tucked away under the serving surface when they are not in use. Here are some of our favorites, hope you like them.

There are definitely a wide selection of looks and styles here each with their own flair. Barstools should be one of the pieces of furniture that don’t have to be overly serious and are often best when fun and casual giving a relaxing visual feel and comfort if possible. We like the fun and eye catching colors some of these incorporate into the mix and especially the creative shapes that invite you to stay and hang out a while.

In most homes with traditional decorative themes, the Napoleon barstools from Pottery Barn offers great accent seating for guests and family. Napoleon Pottery Barn Barstools features wicker seating with four different color wood options: white, black, honey, and mahogany. This product is a standard for Pottery Barn as it is perhaps one of the most popular barstools in their furniture line. I like the fact that it has a back as I prefer to lean into a backrest when sitting. The four color choices give you a chance to go for lighter look in the kitchen with honey or white or stay with darker stains. Price: $249.
