Modern Kitchen

The kitchen might be considered the most practical room in the house. Basically everything exists to serve a function from the fridge to the choice of flooring to the lighting. I’m a firm believer in making every space absolutely beautiful yet functional and stylish seating in the modern kitchen is no exception.

In the last 60 years the kitchen has become a more central gathering spot to the home, making it even more important in creating that functional space. One way to achieve this is through adequate and comfortable seating. Kitchen countertops inevitably become a location for doing homework, snacking, and lounging so you might as well design for it, right?

My favorite kitchens typically feature an island or central table that are important for both the chef as well as other guests in the home. By pulling in some bold and chic counter height swivel stools you can create that important eye level seating.

Another way to add functionality to the seating arrangement is by going with material options that are food and kid friendly like faux leather. This allows for easy clean ups, which are important for such a high-trafficked area.
Here are some of my favorite ultramodern faux leather barstools that would act beautifully in any style of kitchen.

2.    This stainless steel back bar stool is great for a more sophisticated look.
3.    This handsome faux leather bar stool with natural bamboo would work well with any style of kitchen. 
4.    This adjustable walnut bar faux leather barstool is great for comfort and great for kids.
5.    Lastly, this faux leather bar stool with a polished chrome base is lovely and functional with its foot rest.

Have you thought about adding seating to your kitchen?
