5 of Our Favourite Bar Stools

5 of Our Favourite Bar Stools

Here at The Main Company, we’ve long been fans of the humble breakfast bar and it’s versatile nature in the kitchen. Perfect for gathering together as a family for a quick bite to eat, the breakfast bar is also great for those evenings when you’re looking to enjoy a lengthy meal with good friends and plenty of wine. As the social hub of the kitchen, perching at the breakfast bar provides the opportunity to socialise and catch up on each other’s day whilst dinner is cooking; plus it’s perfectly positioned to keep half an eye on homework progress. As a staple in so many of our bespoke kitchen designs, here are 5 of our favourite bar stool designs that will complement and complete your look.

The Grosvenor Bar Stool – £595.00

The Grosvenor Bar Stool is one of the most sought after products we have. With leather upholstery, solid oak legs and brass pin detail this stool is as comfy as it looks. Want to see how it looks in a kitchen setting? Have a look at our Bristol Project

Industrial Leather Bar Stool

The Industrial Leather Bar Stool from Rockett St George is an insider favourite, having been used in our director’s kitchen at home in Yorkshire. With its simple structure, dark tan leather and pale stitching, this bar stool is perfect for more rustic, industrial kitchen settings.

Weathered Oak Farmhouse Stool – £150.00

This Weathered Oak Farmhouse Stool will give any living space a modern sociable feel, prefect for a breakfast bar or at your kitchen island, made from solid pieces of weathered oak. For extra comfort the stool has moulded seat and horizontal bars of varying heights to act as foot rests. See it in our interiors section here

With its chunky modern design and beautiful natural oak finish, the Curved Top Oak Stool from Cox & Cox is ideal for sophisticated Shaker-style kitchens. Available in Eau de Nil and Charcoal as well as Raw Oak, the Curved Top Stool will blend effortlessly with all manner of individual styles in the kitchen.

Audrey Mid-Century Style Bar Stool

Sleek and suitably stylish, the Audrey Bar Stool from Swoon Editions takes its inspiration from iconic Mid-Century furniture and promises to transport you to the coolest cosmopolitan restaurants. Opt for rich Forest Green or Dark Navy for an on-trend look or choose the Light Grey stool for more neutral kitchen schemes.
