Rattan counter stools, wherever they are placed, are an important design element. Our wicker collection spans many styles that will be at home in kitchens, family areas, great rooms, bar spaces and for dining when paired with a gathering height table. Rattan cane and core fibers are among the many popular components you will find at Wicker Home and Patio Furniture as well as hardy grasses that also withstand the test of time and use. From private nooks to busy family and entertaining areas, counter height seating in pairs or larger groupings will stand out for quality and looks as well as for comfort.
Height does matter when selecting counter stools as opposed to bar stools. In the former, floor to seat distance should be 24-28 inches, and the actual counter ledge or table height should be between 36 inches and 39 inches with 8-12 inches allotted for under-ledge legroom. When space is limited or more stools need to fit into smaller areas, backless models, especially those with swivel bases, are ideal. They also create a clean profile in open areas. Low-backed, mid-backs and high-backs, with and without swivel seats, are also among our featured styles. As part of larger collections, counter stools can be paired with matching tables as well as other furnishings to create a complete ensemble.
Many of our counter height stools with backs are inspired by coastal styles of yesteryear, and these "new" classics are just as popular today as they were in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Decorative spindling in repeating “X” patterns are a traditional appointment along with wrapped legs and ball feet. Art Deco inspiration also makes an appearance with patterned diamond inlays in wicker panels along with symmetrical weaves at backs and sides.
Tropical influences are also prevalent in our collections, and these include the warm natural hues of rattan caning that form solid bases as well as smaller core fibers used in weaving. Creating an exotic retreat that everyone will gravitate to when entertaining is easy.
Along with natural finishes, a larger palette of colors is available for many featured styles. These include subtler hues such as light yellows and vintage whitewashes along with beautiful sky blues and muted greens. More vivid choices are available that will give counter stools cottage, shabby chic and even urban character. Paired with fabric selections, there is counter height seating available at Wicker Home and Patio Furniture to fit any setting.
