For a more futuristic and office-like try models with a rounded back and footrests. These look great in a set or even as a single unit. They aren’t bulky but they definitely made a statement in any nook or cranny you set them in. And whether it’s a small or bigger space, they’ll fit right in.

counter stools with rounded backs

Similar to the examples above, this seating has a squarer back and an even more futuristic footrest. We are loving the black foundation which is a bit outside-the-box of a traditional silver setting and we too think these work great on their own or in a pair at the breakfast bar or heightened kitchen table.

The mixing of interior design styles found in this piece makes it one of our absolute favorites. Tradition is held on top while contemporary industrialism is held on the bottom. There’s a definite masculine energy circulating throughout these pieces and they’re be great inside an industrial-visioned kitchen or even sitting on your architect desk in the home office.

Slick with fluid lines, we’re loving this duo of modern pieces. They have a bit of a sophisticated, older essence which is great for a bar area or smaller kitchen. The smoothness and neutral foundation also makes them a versatile piece for whatever counter top you need them at.

These examples may not be the most comfortable of choices but they are ultra chic. They don’t take up too much room and keep the work space of the kitchen a bit more roomy and welcoming.
