Kitchens with islands are not just more functional but look chic as well. The functionality seems to double if you have bar stools perched near the island. Most people place bar stools to lend a distinct style to their kitchens as well as for saving space.
There are plenty of bar stool designs that utilize rattan or fabric for a cozy kitchen atmosphere. Rattan bar stools typically come in combinations that involve wood and accentuate the warmth of your kitchen.
