Traditional Kitchen Stools

By Philippa Baker, 9th July, 2013

When it comes to buying for the bar or kitchen, there's nothing quite like traditional kitchen stools. These enduring designs have continued to gain prominence in the market thanks to their sturdy and continuous appeal. In the furniture world, tradition is most commonly associated with wooden designs. With this in mind, Atlantic Shopping has rapidly expanded its range with a number of appropriately rustic lines.

"Often customers opt to match their bar stools with the general finish of their kitchen for a consistent and captivating aesthetic. Whether oak is the order of the day or walnut rings your bell, the sheer wealth of choices on offer makes going down the rustic route a highly versatile endeavor."

Our new wooden kitchen stools offer the option of a bespoke service, where the same stool is available in multiple finishes and a choice of two heights. Whether you’re looking to buy for the home or the business, the options on offer make the process nice and simple. Furthermore, we feel we are unique among suppliers to the commercial sector in that we list our prices next to our products, simplifying and therefore quickening the buying process.

Many of our wooden bar stools, such as our popular Ascot, are available in an oak or dark wood finish, often with a comfortable fabric or faux leather seat pad. Representing a contemporary spin on old classics, these options unearth a certain modernity to wooden furniture. Alternatively, a number of our stools such as the Stockholm sport beautiful bentwood detailing, a technique pioneered by Michel Thonet back in the 19th century.

This intricate process originated in Eastern Europe, before spreading across the continent as it rose to prominence. The famous bentwood shape is achieved by applying heat to wood, then molding it by hand. Frequently associated with bistros and aesthetically ornate establishments, it brings a delicate flair to the famously durable design material, and our bentwood bar stools can be relied on to add sophistication to a broad range of locations.

Better still, many of our newer products are accompanied by matching dining chairs. Perfect if you’re looking to capture that streamlined look, these traditional stools enable you to enjoy all the wonders of wood at a utilitarian and universally accessible height. If you’re feeling extravagant, why not consider combining different finishes for a look that is at once textured and fabulously tasteful.

Beautiful, functional and effective across a spectrum of settings, our traditional kitchen stools prove that the designs of the past truly can thrive in the present.
