Okay, so we really did move....finally. It happened suddenly and quickly when a really sweet rental apartment in our neighborhood opened up. So we found ourselves in the odd position of needing to buy furniture for ourselves for the first time in a LONG time. One of the things we needed was a seating around this great butcher block from IKEA...

Here are the posts we've compiled about our new home:

For Ursula we thought we'd need a high chair, but so far we don't. This amazing Metoo chair clips on to the butcher block and we throw it into the tub when she's done.

For the stool situation, first we went to our trusty BEST STOOLS FOR THE HOME post and Sara really liked the colorful French vintage industrial stools from DWR: The Marais Stool ($228). We liked it too, but then we remembered that we had a real dark horse, super comfortable stool on our list - one we'd found years ago: The Lyon Industrial Stool. Here's the link at C&H.

This baby only costs about $65 and came in a week. It has adjustable feet, is super heavy duty (but not heavy) and we're considering what color we want to paint it next so that we can jazz it up a little. If you are looking for counter stools and like the INDUSTRIAL look, we would really recommend looking at this solution (and the Metoo as well if you have kids).
