A Modern, Minimalist Bar Stool
Minimalistic in style without maximizing your budget, this IKEA bar stool is a basic beauty. The $90 white seat with a modern chrome base has a slim silhouette, making it a great option for tight condos, while the wipe-away plastic seat has “family-friendly” written all over it. GLENN Bar Stool, IKEA, $90.
An Industrial-Meets-Country Stool
A country lover and an industrial die-hard walk into a bar… and these are the bar stools they settle on. The LARS stool from Structube marries clean industrial lines with a touch of country (thanks to the wood seat). We’ve seen them styled in clean, white kitchens and they add just the right amount of rustic personality. LARS stool, Structube, $79.
Well Hello, Aloe
The Svelti counter stool comes in the perfect shade of aloe green. Unique but muted, this gorgeous shade of green adds just the right touch of colour without overpowering your bar (that kind of energy is better left to the cocktails!). Svelti Aloe Green Counter Stool, Article, $149.
Metal Stools: A Kitchen Mainstay
You’ll be hard-pressed to find a more affordable option than the Mainstay Metal stool from Walmart. This set of four stools retails for $150, leaving ample room in your decorating budget for less affordable finds (we’re looking at you, Eames Lounge Chair). These stools may appear understated, but their metal finish packs a personality-filled industrial punch. Set of Four Mainstay Metal Stools, Walmart, $150.
