Looks like it's shaping up to be an industrial chic day on AT:Chicago. We've been looking at kitchen sets, and lately we're dreaming of a counter with stools to help create a little more workspace in our kitchen. We were excited to see Janel's picks from Costco, and we went searching for a few more counter/stool combos.

are made from 80 percent recycled aluminum, and they're available at many modern retailers for about $300 - $800 each. If money were no object, we'd outfit a kitchen counter with 4 of these in a second. For the counter, the stainless steel work table

The Marais Stool is just right for the French cafe look. They're $280 each at Design Within Reach and right now the gunmetal gray is on sale for $220.
We really like the look Maxwell got in his home with the Lyon Industrial Stool (only $65) and IKEA butcher block counter.
Emily and Craig picked up their counter stools from Aldi (the grocery store) and painted them white. High and low is always cool.
This IKEA kitchen gave us lots of ideas, like using a countertop table with an island of storage underneath.
