Stool Options

I started looking online for some stool options for my new desk. As you can see in the picture, we had some extra stools from our dining room table, but they are too short. I need something that is at least 30 inches high which helped me narrow my search down.

Here are two options I liked from Target:

Uptown Parson Barstool - Trellis.Opens in a new window

Uptown Parson Barstool - Green Apple - 30".Opens in a new window

and one from IKEA:

HENRIKSDAL Bar stool with backrest IKEA

I will continue searching around, but option one is the current leader. I love that the design is bold, but neutral. I will most likely paint the legs white to coordinate with the desk and the rest of the room.

Any ideas on where else to look? I want something with a cushion on the bottom and back like the ones above. If it is comfortable, I will be more likely to stay focused longer :)

  1. Option one is super cute, and that pattern is really neat. You should try somewhere like Home Goods, they don't have a site so you'd have to find a store...but they probably have some jazzy chairs.

  3. I had the third ones in my first Chicago apartment and they were ok. Mostly sturdy. Did the job, but definitely weren't something I'd sit in for hours. The back hit in a weird spot (I'm super short); it was just too low. The nice thing is that they have a variety of slipcovers and my mom was even able to make cuter ones for me.
