bar stools for a bar nook

I'm lucky enough to have a little nook in my kitchen for a high bar table. And while I may not use it as such as often as I should, I love having it there as an option. It's more like the dinner-for-one-nook or the coffee-and-laptop-nook on Saturday mornings. Regardless of the hat it's wearing on any given day, this area is clearly functional. But practicality can sometimes only go so far. And given my appreciation for Scandinavian design of style meets functionality, I think it's time to entertain the idea of seeking out some new, modern bar stools.

And also because after an hour of sitting in the ones pictured above, your behind is not exactly pleased to be a part of you. Therefore new style = better function. I've totally legitimized the expense! Phew. That's a relief.

Of course I've lusted over the Kartell Ghost Stool for quite some time now. Their "invisibility" factor is ideal in a small space.

But there's something to be said about a stool with some back support. There's also something to be said about winning the lottery. Which is what I'll need to be doing in order to support this exciting endeavor. Because this Knoll Bertoia Stool is making my heart race. And my bank account panic.

The Bertoia is truly sinful... but kaching!
The blu dot is pretty slick..cost?
Could the Aalto be any less expensive than the Bertoia? It too is pretty sweet.If you don't have the cash for investment....
anything worthwhile at Crate and Barrel??

The Bertoia is so damn fabulous but I imagine not the most comfortable option. The fact that it's also $855 is also a bit of a...ahem, problem. The Blu Dot goes for $179/each and the Aalto is $475.

Long story short, this is all entirely hypothetical!
