Contemporary kitchens usually have the most unusual and innovative focal points. This kitchen, for example, features some very intriguing bar stools.

This eclectic kitchen also proposes a very interesting idea for barstools. Their bases are giant springs and they actually seem like real springs that have been repurposed. Their rusty finish gives them character and personality and the seats further reinforce this vintage look.

In the case of barstools, the base is usually the one that usually suffers the transformation and gives them character and charm. In the case of these modern barstools, the base seems to have an apparent random design but it’s actually a well-though structure that evenly supports the seat and the user while also giving the stool a unique look.

Even though it’s custom to have barstools that share the same design, color and finish, it’s not absolutely necessary to follow this trend. You can have barstools that are only similar in terms of style but that feature unique designs. You can even play with style and combine contemporary elements with vintage and traditional details.
