Get the Look: 72 Bar + Counter Stools

As I mentioned yesterday, we chose the bar stools for Meredith + Daniel’s  kitchen. Although we arrived at an obvious and eternally perfect classic (Bertoia!), I looked at a lot of examples of bar & counter stools. Lucky you, they’re detailed below.

First though, let’s have a lesson.

What’s the difference between a bar stool & counter stool?
If you’ve ever shopped for kitchen stools, you’ve noticed that they come in two heights. The standard height for a bar stool is 30″, while the average height for a counter stool is about 26″.

How to choose the right height bar & counter stool?
You’ll want 8″ to 12″ of leg room between the stool and the bottom of your counter/table.

Consider the overhang.
You might find that counters with a very deep overhang call for a slightly shorter stool.

How much space should you allot between stools?
For stools 16″-18″ wide, allow about 22″ of space between them. For stools 19″-22″ wide, allow about 24″ of breathing room. Leave even more space for swivel stools and stools with arms.

Montage: 43 Kitchen Counters + Islands with Stools

Now that Meredith & Daniel’s dining spaces are set, it’s time to choose the stools for the kitchen island. The kitchen is a large, sleek space with bamboo cabinetry and floor-to-ceiling windows along one side. It opens to the living room/dining spaces on either end.

While there are a lot of very cool counter stools on the market (stay tuned for a round-up of 72 tomorrow), we’re leaning towards the Bertoia. The simple design works perfectly in the contemporary kitchen and won’t interfere with any design details in either living space. Meredith also appreciates that they have seat backs, so they’re safer for squirmy toddlers, and they’re virtually indestructible. They’re a bit pricey, but we’ve only splurged once so far (on the Saarinen dining table).

Here are 43 kitchens with counter stools. Seven have Bertoias. I noted in parentheses the stool designer where I was able. If you can name any of the other ones, leave me a comment and I’ll add it in.

Get the Look: 46 Modern Dining Tables

Now that Meredith & Daniel’s dining room schemes are complete, I’ve put together my favorites from  my exhaustive search for dining tables. I’ve included a bit of everything here—round, elliptical, and rectangular—including tables that expand and fold up. Most are modern in style, some are vintage, materials run the gamut from scrap wood to marble, and prices range from $179 (IKEA!) to a piece by Autoban for De La Espada for $12,595.

I’ve been a huge fan of #3 for weeks, and it was just in a kitchen I wrote about for the Boston Globe Magazine. I can’t help but love the Saarinen (I have the side tables and they’re just so satisfying). I really love the mix of marble & rough wood, not to mention the price, of #1. #16 is pretty, and #44 and #46 are great reflections of current trends—dipped and geo. Any favorites here, or that I may have left out?

Get the Look: 41 Kitchen Island Pendants

To follow up on last week’s Montage: 32 Kitchen Island Pendants, here are 41 styles of pendant petite enough to hang over the island. You can see I tend to veer to an industrial sort of style, and certainly favor the bare bulb aesthetic. I detest the red and cobalt cylinders so often found in newly built kitchens. I included a couple of colored glass specimens here, but they’re either a semi-translucent sky blue, if opaque, in a mid-century modern silhouette. I actually don’t have pendants over the island in Boston or the Cape. (I do however have a trio of #13 over the kitchen banquette table.) I prefer the clean look of recessed lights over an island, but if I had to have some, I really love these. My favorites . . . I am OBSESSED with #5 and #41.
