5 Recommendations and 167 Ideas
French counter stools with backrest in a light finish
As long as you have enough room for them, French country counter height bar stools with a back or armrests will reward you with a comfier experience.
This is especially recommended if you think you’ll be sitting on them for longer periods of time and don’t want to run the risk of slouching.
Perhaps you love this idea but are still worried about your visual flow or your room looking a bit too busy? Then just prioritize lighter finishes from the typical French country palette (for example, cream, light gray, white, or beige) to avoid a heavy look.
French country backless bar stools
If you’re tight on space, French bar stools without a back nor armrests are the wisest choice, especially for kitchen islands.
Not only won’t they get in the way of your visual flow (making your small setting appear airier and wider than it actually is): you’ll also be able to push them underneath the top surface as soon as you’re done using them.
This will translate into extra space around your dining area, which is always a big plus.
Another effective decorative trick involves creating a pleasant contrast between your new French country bar stools and the actual table or island.
So, if the latter already showcases a light finish, you could experiment with darker stools that still maintain a harmonious French country design (like ornate legs and an elegant round or oval back, for instance).
Some popular darker hues in this style’s palette are chocolate, graphite, burgundy, and old violet.
However, darker furniture can result in a heavier and more cluttered feel, which is why we only recommend it in spacious rooms where this wouldn’t be a risk.
Comfy upholstered French country kitchen stools
Coaster Home Furnishings
For the most comfortable experience that’s more similar to traditional chairs, upholstered designs certainly get bonus points (they’ll probably want to make you have breakfast for hours instead of getting up!).
This is a slightly more contemporary take on the traditional French country style, but you can still maintain the latter by choosing upholstered stools in more ornate designs (e.g. featuring harmonious lines), a rustic wooden frame, and a color from its charming natural palette.
French provincial counter stools
Nature and the romantic world of the countryside obviously play a central role in this bucolic decorative style.
If you’d like to emphasize them even further, consider looking for provincial-style French counter stools in an attractive but more casual design. For instance, you could scout for open backs in a crossed pattern, distressed wood, or discolored paint.
You basically want to make it look as if you had just brought a French countryside patio into your dining room.
