Contemporary counter-height bar stools are designed to serve as the perfect bar stools for your counter height space needs. The beautiful blend of design, functionality, and material components will provide an aesthetically pleasing complement to your existing space and surrounding interior design theme. Just make sure to select the right height for your stools (counter stools are shorter than bar height bar stools) and make sure the pieces integrate seamlessly into the overall look and feel of the room.
What are Modern Counter Stools?
Knowing the difference between bar stools and counter stools is essential for selecting the proper seating for your bar table, bar top, counter, or similar type of space. Modern counter stools are between 23″ and 26″ tall, compared to between 28″ and 31″ for bar stools. These several inches of difference can be a mile when it comes to achieving the right height for sitting and enjoying. Modern counter stools, in addition to being able to shift between 23 and 26 inches depending on your height, comfort level, and spacing needs, are designed around the principles of modernist ideals and modern furniture fundamentals, with an emphasis on stainless steel, reflective polished surfaces, technological inspirations, and advanced materials that enhance the simplicity of the core beauty without bogging the stools down in heavy ornamentation or unnecessary complexity.
