Here’s a photo of the completed mid century counter stools in the Central Park East apartment kitchen. Bar stools are usually 30″ and counter stools 25″, it’s important to factor in the height.
The height also can be custom, some spaces have higher counters where ideally the deals are several inches taller than 25″. There are also several additional metal options pictured here, as well as a closeup of the cherry wood grain for this particular mid century style.
Pictured is a set of counter stools we designed and created for a client on 5th Ave. For these stools we used solid cherry wood with a French hand polished finish. Cherry, like walnut, has one of the nicest natural wood grains in the world, and although rarer and more expensive, is an excellent option for furniture. The brushed stainless steel metal rings were also custom made to fit the legs. The stools are available either as 25″ counter stools or 30″ bar stools and, as with all of our furniture, can be be designed incorporating several different wood, finish and metal options. If you have a modern space they look beautiful in natural walnut with brushed steel finished rings as well as with white lacquer and brushed brass or darken brass metal rings. Originally they were designed in the Mid-Century modern style and tend to match well with with a variety of interior spaces.
These white matte lacquer kitchen counter stools are made out of solid wood with brushed stainless steel foot rests.
The modern counter stools are also available on a bar stool height and in different finishes and materials from black lacquer to solid walnut. The metal elements could also be coated to suit different styles.
Adolf Loos was an architect and designer during the early twentieth century who viewed ornaments as an expression that needed to be eliminated to best express modern civilization and style. Pictured is a representation of his furniture design work that features the clean simplicity of his work; it was free of ornaments and focused on a geometric simplicity which pointed towards the beginning of twentieth-century modernism. Built-in shelving, seating and cabinets supported a clean functional approach to design. To the right is an Oak and Brass Side Table from 1905 and to the left is a mahogany stool from 1905.
These mid-century modern counter stools are 25″ height and can also be made as bar stools depending on the layout of the interior. A hallmark of mid century modern furniture is less ornamentation, a simple clean shape that can be easily integrated into a contemporary or traditional space. These were designed with a natural wood finish and brass foot rest. The stools are offered on ERA Interiors main site here.
