The Meryl Pottery Barn bar stools feature classic styling perfect for a traditional kitchen island or breakfast bar. Meryl comes in a dark stain kiln-dried hardwood frame with brown leather, a color combination that works for many homes. There are two models available: one features a round seat while the other features a square seat. Meryl also comes in two heights which make it more likely to work for the counter in your home. Though there are less expensive bar stools on the market, Pottery Barn’s quality is a big selling feature for this product. I rarely see any Pottery Barn furniture on Craigslist for good reason. Price: $229.
