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 about rules for bar stools and counter stools:

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.

I didn’t even realize that the stools I use in Boston and Cape Cod are
