Most Unique Uses of Modern Bar Stools

High counters, kitchen islands, and breakfast nooks have been a strong decor trend for homes and restaurants for years. Decorators and owners alike love the options that modern bar stools provide for seating, the visual weight distribution, and overall comfort. They allow for unique decorating opportunities and provide customers and family members to choose different seating options depending on their requirements.

However, some businesses don't require ample seating like a restaurant does and some households don't have the kitchen space for a counter and stools. Luckily, this doesn't mean that these businesses and homes have to miss out on the bar stool trend!

SohoConcept has some ideas for unique uses of modern bar stools in your home, office, or any other space. How else can you use bar stools in a unique way?

Where To Use Contemporary Stools (Other Than Your Kitchen!)

Side Table / Entrance Table
Need somewhere to throw your keys when you get home? Or somewhere to put your coffee cup right beside your couch? Use a flat stool as a side table or an entrance table. With a bowl for keys and some coasters, you can use modern stools as makeshift small tables with a suitable height for your knick knacks or other small items.

Eiffel Stools

Plant Stand
Finding somewhere for plants in a house can be difficult. Putting them on the windowsill may be too bright, putting them on the coffee table may take up too much space. You can use a contemporary stool of any style as a plant stand for your houseplants as an alternative to these options! Put the stool or stools near the window and keep them out of the way while still showing them off.

Using something like the Corona Wire Stools style with a covered cushion is simple and can be a great way to display your houseplants.

Bathroom Rack
If you're looking for somewhere to put your toiletries or towel while you're in the shower, a swivel stool or adjustable stool can be a great idea. A stool in the bathroom can double as somewhere to sit while getting ready in the mornings. This can also be beneficial in businesses with public bathrooms or showers, like restaurants, gyms, or hotel rooms. Instead of a regular towel rack or shelf, a stool can fulfill other needs as well.

SohoConcept's Dervish Piston Stool is a unique modern stool for this purpose. The adjustable piston chair makes it easy to change the height for looking in the mirror while sitting, and the variety of materials it can be made in allow for complete customization.

DIY Desk Want a completely unique desk idea? Use two stools on either end as the legs and a desktop or set of wood planks across them. The top section can be secured or fastened to the stools or simply placed on top if it won't bear a lot of weight. This desk or shelf can be used in almost any capacity for anything you want – to keep decorations, antiques, phones, scarves, hats, photos, you name it.

With these unique uses of modern bar stools, you can be sure that your home or business will have creative decor like no other place.
