Vintage inspired industrial stools

Lately I’ve been drawn to stools and specifically to industrial stools in a modern kitchen with a vintage twist. I’m loving the contrast between wood kitchen island+cabinets & metal stools, that’s a real statement for a space, don’t you think? And the best part about these stools is that they can be easily found at flea markets and would look stunning without any renovation/restoration. And yes, these stools can also be in different colors, but to be straight I like more their look as if they’d been used for long time, the aged feeling makes them even more charming! Oh and another thing – don’t they look amazing in a rustic inspired kitchen, with all that wood and shabby atmosphere? I think they do! Here are some examples of stools I’d absolutely love to bring into my kitchen!

by the way, my lovely friend showed me this photo few days ago and I was in awe, aren’t these stools gorgeous? (via)








What do you guys think? Would these stools find their place in your kitchen or you wouldn’t go with them when decorating your space? One thing I know – I’m enamored and I feel an urge to have at least one of these lovely pieces, if not in the kitchen, then at least as decoration :)

    I can’t get over those 1st stools! I’ve never seen anything like them! Overall though, I am a big fan of industrial stools and the others you showed are amazing too!

    LOVE those kitchen stools! And I agree with you 100% the rustic feel is so awesome :) My favorite stools are in the first image, they are unique. Also like the last two images, with the yellow stools-what a statement!

    These stools are all fantastic, but I ADORE the first set. They’re so industrial and phsyics-y. It’s awesome. I’d love to do something like that in a brewery — of course, I’d have to have a brewery to do that.
