Top Bar Stools for Your Kitchen in 2020

In 2020, kitchens remain the most frequented area of a home for homeowners.

According to Benjamin Pardo, the design director of Knoll, higher tabletops are often an indication of a transient area, where individuals can sit on a stool to work, have a cup of coffee, or move on to another task. Pardo also notes that as people spend more time collaborating and shifting between sitting and standing, barstools have become increasingly popular because of their versatility.
