Our collection of Nordic and Scandinavian bar stools includes chairs and stools in various shapes, styles, and colors, and includes high-quality natural and industrial materials, such as lacquered oak and walnut or brushed and powder-coated steel.

What’s the difference between bar stools and counter stools?
Many of our designer bar stools and chairs are available in two heights: counter height and bar height. In general, counter-height stools are slightly lower than bar stool chairs designed for kitchen islands or breakfast bars. If you need chairs or stools suited to standard-height tables, counters and desks, visit our selection of luxury counter-height stools.
Not sure what type is best for your table or counter, keep in mind that counter-height stools are 24–27 inches and bar-height stools are 28–33 inches in height.
If you prefer simplicity and minimalism, consider choosing bar stools that match the colors and materials used in your kitchen, dining, or work area. For an eclectic look, mix and match different bar stools and chairs to create your own unique spaces. Another way that you can add color to your interiors or enhance the comfort of your chairs—add accessories from our collections of seat cushions and home decorations.
