French Country Bar Stools

French Country bar stools are very popular for a reason — they give your room a soft and welcoming appeal with a sense of old world style.

What is French Country style?

French Country furniture is known for its beautiful woods, including walnut, olive, pear, and cherry. Select metals are mixed with these woods, especially wrought iron. These pieces enhance a room’s metal accessories, such as wrought iron wall hangings and ornate light fixtures. Furniture with this classic style is at home with many types of decor, including contemporary, country, and oriental settings.

What do French Country bar stools look like?

French Country bar stool designs feature ornate curves that draw the eye and create a sense of romance. The stools’ legs tend to be curved and flared.

Many French Country barstools are made with distressed wood, distressed metal, or a combination of the two.

Wooden French Country stools often have straight legs and a curved design on the back, achieved through fine metalwork accents paired with wood. The combination of metal and wood creates an intriguing two-tone look.

Metal is often finished with a weathered, antiqued look. This is achieved by painting a base layer of gold or silver, and then rubbing it with another color such as black or dark brown. The metal elements of our French Country barstools are powder coated, which is a long-lasting finish that doesn’t chip or wear off easily.

How to decorate with French Country barstools

If you have stainless appliances in the room and you’d like to highlight the color of the stainless steel, choose a metal French Country stool with a nickel finish. If you’d like to highlight brown flecks in your stone countertop, add a brown rub to the nickel. Other popular color combinations are listed below:

Base Rub Ideal pairing/design highlight
Nickel Black Stainless steel appliances
Black Gold Gold fixtures or hardware
Brown Gold Wood cabinets, gold hardware
Gold Black Black wood
Brown Black Light wood

These are just a few ways to customize your French Country bar stools. On each stool’s product page you can browse plenty more options of finishes, upholsteries and colors.

If you have a lot of wood in your kitchen or home bar, you can balance the wood with the metal of a French Country stool. For instance, if your cabinets and floor are wood, then break up the room with metal-frame or metal-accent stools. They give your room depth and interest, and also brighten the space and add color!

French Country pairs beautifully with traditional kitchens

French Country stools add flair to traditional kitchens. Our in-house designer Deborah recently designed a traditional kitchen with maple raised-panel cabinets, stainless appliances, a hardwood floor, and a white island with a white and gold speckled countertop. She chose to place four Carrie stools around the island, finished in nickel with a white seat. Her client said, “It’s gorgeous!”

You can add French Country pieces to contemporary or traditional rooms and they almost always look great. You can add pieces big or small – an entire bar, a set of counter stools, or just wall hangings and small accessories.
