Bar and Counter Stools

Having the right furniture in your home can allow you to take advantage of built-in design details such as a breakfast bar that’s part of your kitchen counter layout. Whether you’re looking for high, comfortable chairs to arrange casual seating at your kitchen counter or you want to create a classic stool arrangement for your home bar, west elm’s bar and counter stools are just right. From cushy, upholstered counter chairs to rustic, backless wooden bar stools, our selections in this category allow you to embrace a chic, modern approach while nodding to decor tradition. From adjustable-height stools to fixed-height chairs, we’ll help you find exactly what you need to incorporate tall seating into your home.

A home bar setup can take on many forms, including a simple bar cart placed in the corner of your living room. But if you’re lucky enough to have a standalone countertop bar, investing in some bar and counter stools will help complete the look and make the space feel more useful and authentic. From your own mixology efforts with a small group of friends to cocktails served up by professional bartenders for a catered party, adding stools to your home bar adds charm and comfort to any situation. If you don’t have a built-in countertop bar, you can still create a bistro/bar feeling by adding a tall table to the space next to your bar cabinet and pulling up a few of these tall chairs to complete the effect.

For a cohesive arrangement, you can select bar and counter stools to match the style and color of your dining room or kitchen table chairs. You may have the ability to select bar and counter stools in the same style as your dining chairs, but in a different upholstery color or leather shade to create some contrast within a unified aesthetic theme. We also have plenty of stools that stand alone and make their own design statement without needing to exactly match the other furniture in your home. However, thanks to our unified design sense that gives a signature look to each of our pieces, you can mix and match different elements from our dining room and bar collections without worrying too much about coordination. Just select the pieces that suit your taste the best and have confidence that the finished product will look fantastic.

Bar and counter stools provide a great way for you to enjoy casual weekday meals at your breakfast bar. When paired with our modern dining collections, you’ll have a satisfying setup that brings a little extra bit of joy to each day. Kids may be especially enthusiastic about dining in tall chairs as a way of mixing up their routine. If you plan to have kids sit on your stools, you may want to select from our options with sturdy backs that can accommodate and support young diners.

From enjoying your morning mug of coffee to giving your home bar that extra boost to make it something truly special, our bar and counter stools are here to support you and bring your decorating dreams into reality. With our midcentury, industrial and contemporary designs, you’ll be sitting pretty at a bistro table, breakfast counter or home bar. Perfect for casual, formal and everything in between, our bar and counter stools are versatile thanks to smart engineering and careful, impressive design.

Don’t hesitate to use these tall chairs and stools anywhere you happen to need higher seating. You could even use one of our bar stools a backup seating option in your home office. This is particularly useful if you have a standing desk but sometimes like to be able to take your weight off your feet rather than having to stand for the entire day. If you have an adjustable-height standing desk, our adjustable stools may be the perfect match to give you a fully customizable workstation.
