Single Bench Bar Stools

I get a RIDICULOUS number of e-mails asking about the bar stool bench
featured in the Spring Lane home I worked on last year.
I have been enamored with this concept of a bench stools for quite some time and when I first consulted on that house, I knew it would be the perfect spot to incorporate one. The gray striped bench stool I used was custom made by a local upholstery company and unfortunately is not available ready made(although Lee Industries makes a similar one) but today I have rounded up the best options around the web to share with you. But first a little inspiration:

Gorgeous natural modern kitchen with a brown geometric bench stool

Simple industrial gray kitchen with two white bench stools

In this simple white kitchen, I love the pop of yellow here!

And in this farmhouse kitchen designed by Mark J. Williams

And this classic kitchen with homey details

I Love them ALL!

I carefully selected only my favorites among the options of bench bar stools to include
in my little round up, but there quite a few options available on the web.
If you're up for a little DIY a handful of options (like this or this) would be darling dolled up
with a little slip-cover or recovered seat if you're looking to personalize your look.

Speaking of bar stool benches, check out this awesome Chiang Mai Dragon version available
for sale from Upcycled Home. They will custom make a bench like this in any fabric
of your choice, so if you're looking to go the custom route, keep them in mind.

Hope this helps all of you that have been sending me e-mails trying to track down this item.
