Good Questions: Fix for Low Stools at a High Counter?

Pin it button big

Lauren is looking for some ideas: I recently picked up two Kyoto barstools from DWR. I knew when I bought them that they would be way too low for my absurdly high (47") kitchen counter, but at $50 a pop I figured I would make them work...

...It's a rental, so I'd rather not invest in extra-tall barstools I'll probably never use again. I need to find a way to make the seat height of these stools 6 - 8 inches taller without them getting ungainly and uncomfortable. I'm currently thinking about stacking two or three tufted, round seat cushions for a sort of boho, 'princess and the pea' look, but I'm really not sure. Any ideas?

Please share your ideas and suggestions with Lauren in the comments below - Thanks!
