High/Low: Kitchen Counter Stools

When we renovated our kitchen, one of the features we were most excited about was the spacious island surrounded by beautiful, kitchen counter stools.  We wanted a ‘hang-out kitchen’ where our friends and family could relax, drink a glass of wine and spend time with us while we cooked fabulous, gourmet meals.  You see we are perpetually behind when entertaining, so this was an important and social design feature!

When I started looking for kitchen counter stools, I fell in love with the very beautiful and very expensive Cherner Counter Stool (left)  Such beautiful lines, so clean and modern, I had to have them!  But I couldn’t stomach the $799 price tag (per stool!).  So I began looking for a more affordable substitute and was thrilled to find the West Elm Scoop-Back Counter Stool (right) for $169.  We purchased the West Elm stools in white and love them!
