Inspiration :: Bar Stools

A reader commented on my last entry saying that she needed some inspiration finding colorful bar stools to complement her all-white kitchen. Let's see what we can find:

We'll start off by aiming high...

These Erik Buch bar stools are classically Danish...
While these Onda barstools are classically Design Within Reach...


Or, you can head over to Modernica to build your own!


But for those of us on a budget, we will dream big and purchase logically. These great orange stools were found at a secondhand store...


Stalk Craigslist for great deals, like these Bertoia Stools (whose seat pads can be interchanged and brightened up)...


And lastly, search the Pennysaver weekly for local estate/garage sales and keep an eye out for up-and-coming websites like This is Not Ikea that offer unique, vintage finds.

Good luck, Jen! :)
