The Best Bar Stools for Your Kitchen Island Bench

The kitchen is widely considered the “heart of the home” – after all, it’s where we gather and socialise whilst food is prepared and shared. 

If you have an island bench or similar breakfast bar, then you understand the need for finding suitable seating that is functional, beautiful and, importantly, the right height! 

At Vavoom we have a wide assortment of kitchen bar stools to suit every style (and that are as comfortable as they are chic)! Below are a few pointers for choosing the right chair style for your kitchen’s ambience and your décor tastes:

Make a Statement with Metal

Metal finishes exude sophistication and draw attention for all the right reasons!

Black Iron:

Our Finn Black Iron Kitchen Bar Stool features an elegant black iron frame with strong, geometric lines and a circular base. With a choice of black or natural linen seating, the Finn will fit effortlessly with your kitchen colour palette. 
At 65cm, they are a perfect height for a standard 90cm kitchen island bench. You’ll be at the ideal position for eating, resting your arms naturally and your feet too (on the built-in footrest)!
The Aiden Kitchen Bar Stool has a bold black iron base with asymmetrical cross detailing. They are the perfect stool height to tuck away under your kitchen bench when not in use as a clever space saver.
Ashton Kitchen Stool – simple and understated, the Ashton is ideal for taller benches or if you prefer to sit higher. It is available in a versatile woven natural or black fabric seating. The curved back design and metal matte black tapered legs cement this as a stool that will be right at home in any kitchen!

Brushed or Polished Gold:

Add a touch of luxury to your kitchen and home with a brushed or polished gold finish: 

  • The Emily Bar Stool is a regal gold metal frame with a gorgeous curved and linear design that forms a half-moon base. To make things even more plush, the stool has a black or indigo velvet seat and backrest. 
  • Sleek Bell Kitchen Bench Stool – a design that stands out in any setting with its metallic champagne-gold coated frame and velvet fabrication, which adds a touch of soft luxuriousness. Available in black, grey, green, blue or pink, you can always mix and match colours for a little avant-garde quirkiness and unique kitchen feature!
  • The Wave Kitchen Bench Stool is a modern take on a classic round stool. It features a curved vegan-leather seat that has the added benefit of being durable and easy to clean. The metallic gold frame adds the finishing touch to this beautiful design that can go with the flow of any kitchen! 

Create Airy Lightness and Softness with Natural Finishes 

Classic neutral tones and natural materials like rattan and wood help add warmth and lightness to your kitchen space.  

They make excellent choices if you want your kitchen to exude a refreshing ambience or create and enhance a coastal chic “Hamptons” style aesthetic.

  • Our Rhone Barstool is a beautiful choice that has a woven-look curved seat with back, set against a solid oak wood frame. The natural white is a perfect choice for a bright finishing touch to your kitchen, but muted grey or classic black are available too. 
  • The Slee Stool is an innovative design featuring a solid wooden Elm seat curved to fit the contours of your body for a more ergonomic and comfortable design. The white stainless-steel frame adds a crisp finish to this bar stool seat.
  • Connor is an oak wood stool that evokes a subtle bohemian vibe with its rounded rattan detailed seat base and classic cross bar detailing. The pure white or natural wooden finish make for a wonderful addition to any kitchen where “less is more” is the design mantra. They will fit into your space without dominating, and can be easily concealed under your island bench when not in use.
