Bar+Counter Stools

Designer Bar Stools & Counter Stools

An almost necessary addition to your kitchen or bar, counter, and bar stools foster great conversations in the kitchen. Comfort is paramount, of course, but bar stools are so much more than simple seating. Whether you’re going for a look of sophistication or nostalgia, bar stools can add an element of chic and complement almost any space.

Shop from a collection that includes backless stools as well as those with back support. From wood to metal, upholstered to solid wood, you won’t have any trouble finding the perfect bar stool or counter stool to suit your decor and sensibilities.

Counter & Bar Stool Collections

Our kitchen counter stool collections include the Bailey, BenchMade Maple, BenchMade Midtown, and BenchMade Oak.

How Tall Should Bar Stools Be?

Common Stool Heights

Most counter stools range between 25 to 30 inches, with "tall" barstools ranging between 30 to 40 inches. When picking a counter or bar stool, it's important to leave about 10" between the seat of the stool and the bottom of the bar or counter so your legs have a comfortable amount of space.

Custom Design Your Bar Stools

Here’s the fun part – with Bassett’s custom design program, you’ve got a myriad of options, colors, styles, leathers, and fabrics at your fingertips. One of our professional design consultants can step you through the process of creating your new counter or bar stool. Add your own individual aesthetic to your new counter stools or match existing decor. The world is your oyster. And if oyster is the color you want for your new bar stool, we can do that, too!

With so many different materials, fabrics, and patterns, you can create almost any look. One of our expert design consultants can guide you step by step through the design process.

What is the difference between a bar stool and a counter stool?

In all reality, there is not much difference between bar stools and counter stools. The only difference is that kitchen island counter stools may be more apt to have a back on them than counter stools.

What bar stools are in style?

The counter height bar stools that are most in demand right now are typically made of solid wood such as Oak or Maple. In addition, they also feature no arms. Upholstered styles are just as popular as those without upholstered seats or backs. There is also a growing trend towards saddle kitchen stools as well.
