12 Best Modern Farmhouse Bar Stools

The modern farmhouse style “trend” has started to transition a little over the past couple of years, so it makes sense that farmhouse bar stools and counter stools have followed the shift as well.  But make no mistake, whether you like farmhouse chic, modern or coastal farmhouse, granny chic, or boho farmhouse, there is just something about the farmhouse style that draws you in with it’s no-fuss approach to decorating, and the bar stools follow these same guidelines.  Farmhouse style isn’t simply a trend…. it’s a way of living!  Here are the 12 Best Modern Farmhouse Bar Stools.

12 BEST MODERN FARMHOUSE BAR STOOLS

3 Elements

When scrolling through pinterest for kitchen inspirations, 3 things immediately catch my eye: 

  1.   bar stools
  2.   light pendants
  3.   color of the  kitchen cabinets   

These are the 3 elements that seem to move the eye around, and give the most interest to a plain kitchen canvas. 

Since most of my kitchen inspirations have a little farmhouse style in them, I knew finding the 12 Best Modern Farmhouse Stools wouldn’t be a problem. 

It’s just that I didn’t know if I could edit all of  these bad boys into a cliff notes version post (yep- I said cliff notes…remember those)? 

So, I will try to do my best and scale it down the best I can…which means….grab a drink & some snacks.  You’ll be here for awhile!!

12 BEST MODERN FARMHOUSE BAR STOOLS

FIRST THINGS FIRST:

Here are some guidelines to help you with measurements and spacing when purchasing bar (and counter) stools.  The main thing to look at is your counter height:

counter height (35″ – 37″) = counter stool

bar height (41″-43″) = bar stool

extra tall bar height (44″-47″) = extra tall bar stool

So, don’t forget to measure!
