Inspiration: Bright Bar Stools

Inspiration: Bright Bar Stools

This photo of a set of bright red bar stools struck as a great idea for the kitchen. Lined up in a row, they have a bold impact against the white backdrop of the bar. Inspired by the look, we went searching for a few more resources and ideas...

The stools shown in the top photo are $490 at Maine Cottage, but if the price is beyond your budget you could also paint a set of bar stools in the hue of your choice. Another photo from Living Etc. shows a similar setup, with a lower bright red stool at a whitewashed dining table. In case you're on the lookout for your own set of colorful bar stools, we've started a list of resources:

Cokie Stool from Maine Cottage in 40 Colors, $490
Yellow Marais Stool from Design Within Reach, on sale for $255 (reg. $300)
Red Schoolhouse Bar Stool from Pottery Barn, $249
Green Diego Bar Stools from CB2, $139
Colored Bertoia Barstools from Knoll
Pub Counter Stools in Antique Red from Target, $119
