The juxtaposition between this wood lined kitchen and the industrial metal bar stools is simply amazing. The minute I came across this image, my eyes settled on the bar stools and I knew I had to have them. While they may be most recognized as the iconic Tolix stool, there are a few other options in varying price points, too.
- Tolix Marais Barstool from DWR Based on the original Marais chair, as designed by metalworker Xavier Pauchard in 1934. Available in gunmetal and white. $300
- Mid Century Studio Stool from Sundance Also a Tolix and made in Friance but at a slightly better price. $195
- Garden Backless Bar Stool from Home Decorators Collection A close facsimile of the original Tolix design, available in four colors. $139
- Remy Backless Stool from Restoration Hardware Clearly inspired by the Tolix but with a rounded top. Available in five finishes. $119
- Tabouret 30-inch White Metal Counter Stools from Overstock At a 2-for-1 price, this is definitely the option for bargain hunters. Also available in other finishes. $99.99/set of 2
