Are you searching for new kitchen island stools and you’re loving the uber-popular (and easy-to-clean) woven counter stools you see all over Instagram and Pinterest?! 

If you answered, ‘YES and YES!’, this post is for YOU! In this issue of Caroline’s Five Finds, I rounded up five of my favorite woven counter stools. Don’t worry … there are MANY more options in ‘Shop the Post’ below! I can’t possibly narrow it down to just FIVE choices!

I also answer common questions about counter stools … How high are counter stools?, Do I need bar or counter stools?, and How many stools do I need?

SHOP THESE COUNTER STOOLS

 

Just so you know … you’re making a great choice! Woven stools are a fabulous option if you have kids! We all know that kids hands are a *little* messy when eating … a woven stool is WAY easier to clean than upholstery (I speak from experience). Also, any stains you can’t remove will be nicely hidden by the woven texture!

1. RIVIERA COUNTER STOOL

The Riviera stools are a combination of style, beauty, and functionality. These woven counter stools are a MUST-HAVE for any kitchen with sticky kiddo hands! The Riviera stool comes in several colors so you are sure to find one that matches your kitchen.

2. RIVIERA BACKLESS COUNTER STOOL

If you love the Riviera stools above (#1), but want to spend less money and to take up less visual space … go with the backless Riviera counter stools. They are light and easy-to-clean! 

3. WOVEN BROWN SUEDE COUNTER STOOL

This brown suede and chrome stool is a stunning contemporary take on the woven counter stool. As you can see, it also comes in bar height … and it’s also offered in black suede!

4. SEAGRASS COUNTER STOOL

This rattan counter stool is highly durable, easy to clean, and just a gorgeous addition to your kitchen!

5. BALBOA COUNTER STOOL

I am seriously in LOVE with these stools! Honestly, I would order them for my kitchen IF I hadn’t just reupholstered my stools (which FYI … upholstery is a BAD idea with kids!).

I love this gorgeous natural wood color … and it also comes in a stunning grey wash.  There are also a million-ish options for the cushion color and pattern!

How tall are counter stools?

A counter stool seat height is typically 24″, but can range from 23″-28″ measuring from floor to seat. Make sure to use the seat height measurement … NOT the back height.

Do I need to order counter stools or bar stools?

If you are purchasing stools for your kitchen island (35″-37″ from floor to countertop), you need counter stools (~24” seat height). If you are purchasing stools for a bar height counter (41″-43″ from floor to countertop), you need bar stools (~30” seat height).

How many counter stools do I need?

The number of counter stools needed depends on the width of your kitchen island (or peninsula). Measure your kitchen island and divide by the width of the counter stool you want to purchase. Also, allow for at least 4” between stools.

Example:  Kitchen Island Width 100” ; Stool Width: 18” + 4” (2” on either side) = 22” (note: I said 2″ on either side because you’ll also have 2″ from the stool next to it … this adds up to 4″ between stools)

100” / 22” = roughly 4 (you can comfortably fit four stools with this island size)

There you go … five of my favorite woven counter stools all in ONE shoppable location! If you didn’t find exactly what you’re looking for above, I’ve included more options in Shop the Post below. Happy counter stool shopping!
