Bar Stools | Fabric or Wood | Shannon Bieter Interiors

by Shannon Bieter, May 29, 2014

Lately, I’ve seen so many cool bar stools with unique fabric in kitchen projects. One of my favorite textile companies for stain and moisture resistant fabric is CRYPTON (their funny site matches their brilliant name!). The choices of texture and pattern fabrics are endless, and I love the easy cleaning.  No more worries about spilling grape juice on these fabrics!

For many of us, our kitchen has become an extension of the family room.  The kitchen tends to look a little stark with all the wood and stainless steel.  Bar stools are a great way to add some personality and color to your kitchen.

What do you think about fabric versus wood stools?  I’ve had wood for the last ten years, but I’m ready for a change.  Here are some of the stools I’m thinking of using for my kitchen island.  I would love to know what style is your favorite so please pipe in, ya’ll.  XO, Shannon
