This stylish set of two shaker stools is available in six versatile finishes. From neutral colors to light wood, you’ll easily get to match your existing furniture and palette. Find it in both a counter and bar height.

Designer Advice

Stools with backrests are undoubtedly the most comfortable option. So, we especially recommend them if you think you’ll be using them during long meals, too. They’re also handy if you or someone in your household suffers from back problems. However, their backrest can get in the way of your visual flow. This isn’t a problem in large spaces but could make a small room look more cramped.

This set maintains a recognizable chair design but in a counter or bar height. The crossed lines of its backrests add to the familiar feel of traditional interiors. Still, these stools can work just as well in modern kitchens and dining rooms.

Designer Advice

The most traditional shaker furniture involves oak or maple wood. So, sticking to bar stools in one of these finishes will help you reinforce your inspiration even further. However, if you just want to add a more subtle shaker touch, prioritize simple and minimal designs. You can then opt for a different wood finish or even a saturated hue that matches your palette.

Buying Guide

Bar stools can be placed at the breakfast bar, at your kitchen island or anywhere else in your home. You don't necessarily need a breakfast bar in order to have bar stools, although they are designed to accommodate the height and shape of the stools. Shaker style furniture is purposely created without a huge amount of detail, with the shape and overall design providing enough visual interest to satisfy most homeowners. Before buying shaker style bar stools, here are some of the factors which need consideration.

Although the shaker style has its own features, there are still varying styles which come under this umbrella category. Let's look at some of the main ones:

  • Backless bar stools: A feature which you will need to think about when you're shopping, the inclusion of backs on your bar stools can make them more comfortable and enticing. If you experience problems when sitting on certain types of furniture, or you have back or neck problems, backless bar stools aren't always the best choice.
  • Slightly curved back: Somewhere between a full back and no back at all sits the slightly curved back bar stools. This provides a small amount of support to the lower back, while maintaining a simpler look.
  • Curved seat: Another popular design is the curved seat style. This version of shaker bar stools is comfortable and stylish. Although the seat is wooden, the curvature means that it's not quite as hard and uncomfortable as it might be without this curve. You can also add cushions or other fabric accessories to enhance comfort levels.

While most bar stools are made from wood, there are other materials which can be used, either as a main material or a secondary one, such as:

  • Wicker: The wicker or rattan look is one which you may come across frequently when shopping for shaker style bar stools. The frame is wooden, but the seat itself is made from or covered in wicker. Ideal for cottages and smaller homes where only 2-3 bar stools are required.
  • Fabric: Similar to the above but achieving a very different look, fabric is used on the seat of the bar stool to provide some extra comfort and warmth. Since shaker style bar stools are intended to appear quite plain, it is rare that you will find colorful and bright fabrics. Instead, most of the fabrics will be black, brown or grey colors.
  • Leather: A leather seat is often paired with metal legs and a frame, although with shaker style bar stools you might find a wooden frame instead. Leather is certainly one of the more rare materials to see on these bar stools, but often gives some extra padding to the furniture.

Taking care of your bar stools and ensuring they stay in good condition will depend on what type of materials they are made from. Always research whether your cleaning products are safe for the material of your bar stools – you may need two different products for the wood and seat.
