For any contemporary kitchen to really make a statement, a bar or kitchen island is a must. It's a very functional block of furniture and happens to be the social centre of the kitchen. Plus, it gives you the opportunity to go barstool shopping. The very idea of incorporating stylish barstools in your design is something that can increase your style points in an instant.
Fabric - As far as barstool sitting surfaces go, fabric is the most versatile. Available in thousands of textures, colours and patterns, fabric-covered barstools give off a more relaxed feel. A padded seat is obviously a lot more comfortable than most other options – making this route especially practical.
