Barstools for kitchen island are modern and elegant, but how to coordinate them with table and chairs?

The barstool came into the furnishing scene in recent times, “borrowed” from the world of lounge bars to give a more social and convivial connotation to modern kitchens – that become kitchen island more and more, overlooking the living area. The stools for kitchen island are the ideal solution to exploit the top as a breakfast table, for snacks on the fly but also for romantic dinners. With their attractive design and informal appearance, they give the environment a touch of modernity and, why not, a little bit of colour as well.

How to choose the perfect barstools for your kitchen? Keep in mind the style of furniture and the space available. Additionally, considering that the kitchen is increasingly “open” to the rest of the house and therefore connected to the living area, both chairs and stools can represent a common thread in the furnishings. For this reason, in the Bontempi Casa catalogue there are several seating families that include chairs and barstools for a kitchen island, to be customized by choosing shades and materials according to your own style.

For a more classical kitchen, the ideal solution is to place stools with a high and enveloping back around the high table, so we could say we need proper kitchen island chairs. Polo barstool responds precisely to these characteristics: a solid metal structure supports a wooden seat (that can also be padded and covered for greater comfort), with polypropylene backrests.
