The legs of modern stools are smooth and undecorated. They could be square and tapered, or round and tapered, or even metal. The designs of modern furniture are constantly changing with the styles of modern day decor.

Today’s metal and metal-wood furniture is extremely functional. These pieces are strong, sturdy, and usually don’t take up too much space. With simple, straight, or smoothly curved lines, they’re easy to clean and dust.

Modern Bar Stools Play Well With Other Styles

Modern bar stools aren’t just for contemporary kitchens — they also work well with traditional interiors. Traditional kitchens are elegant and gracious, with a touch of formality. The straightforward design of modern stools goes great with this atmosphere.

Traditional kitchens usually have rich, polished wood cabinets — often cherry, mahogany, or an elegantly stained wood. This provides a nice warmth that can balance the metal frames of modern stools.

White or near-white cabinets are also common, usually with a rich, glossy finish that gives the look of fine furniture. For the cabinet doors, raised panels are often paired with architectural embellishments like crown moldings, decorative hardware, and custom millwork. You can match the metal of your modern stools to your decorative hardware with choices such as black steel or brushed steel.

Contemporary Bar Stools for Contemporary Home Designs

Today’s modern kitchen is all about flat-panel frameless cabinetry, featuring basic lines and hardware. Cabinet finishes are often maple, cherry and birch in light shades. Glass and metal cabinet doors pair nicely with today’s sleek appliances and smart gadgets.

You can echo these design trends by choosing modern stools with vertical slats on the backs of the stools. Wide paneled backs, wide horizontal slats (usually two or three), and even X-shaped slats look great too. Metal bar stools with one, two, or three rings on the back are also a popular style, especially as circular buttons, faces, and frames appear in today’s technology.

Modern bar stools are a perfect fit for kitchens with flat-paneled cabinets, as you can see below.

Modern Bar Stools in a Modern Kitchen

Some other elements of a modern kitchen are stainless appliances, nickel hardware, granite counter tops, and contemporary light fixtures hung from the ceiling.

Pendant lights are an especially striking choice that add a modern touch to any kitchen. A pendant light is a lone light fixture that hangs from the ceiling, often suspended by a cord, chain, or metal rod. They usually hang in a straight line over kitchen counter tops and dinette sets. Pendant lights tend to be sleek and minimally designed.

Are Modern Bar Stools Comfortable?

Our modern bar stools are just as comfortable as any other stool. In a top quality stool, form follows function – which means that the stool’s function — a comfy seat — is the designer’s first priority, and that the shape of the stool is crafted to achieve this.

Some of our most comfortable modern stools are:

Retro-styled Bar Stools

Retro-style modern designs are new twists on historic trends or fashions. Retro-styled bar stools usually evoke the recent past, such as art deco, mid-century modern, post-modern, contemporary, and high-tech.

You’ll most often see styles from the 1920’s and 30’s, or 50’s and 60’s. These styles usually include metal, chrome, or brightly colored vinyls such as turquoise, red, black, rose, white, and gray.

To give your home some retro flair, you only need to incorporate a few details. To create a 1950’s style in your kitchen, for example, you might add diner details such as chrome stools topped with red leather (or vinyl) seats, or maybe choose plastic laminate countertops with a boomerang pattern.

Retro modern stools look great with checkered tile floors such as black and white tiles or black and pink tiles. These tiles also look great in rec rooms and even modern day kitchens.
