Ikea Ingolf Bar Stool
Advantages: Choice of heights, reasonably priced
Disadvantages: None really
Having recently had the kitchen renewed we decided to fit a breakfast bar instead of having a table and chairs.
We spent some time looking at stools but the most common design seems to be contempory with no back rest, which is fine for younger people or if you dont spend much time in the kitchen.
I do spend a lot of time in the kitchen though and I not ony wanted stools with a backrest but probably need then as well. It would be typical of me to lean back and fall off a backless stool and with them being higher than the average seat its a bigger drop to the floor. I aso prefer wood to metal and plastic.
These stools are from Ikea. I like Ikea and don't find the quality any worse than anywhere else.
They are made of pine which is laquered in antique stain, brown-black or there is the white option- easy to turn into the shaby chic style popular today.They also come in a choice of two heights of 63cm and 74cm to the seat area so are suitable for most breakfast bars.
They are £45.
The seat itself is of adequate size for most bottoms. I dont now if there is a maximum weight advised for them but my OH isn't small and he's ok on them.
As always you have to put them together yourself but its an easy job to do and a bit of glue in the jounts is all thats needed to make them really secure.
I have had two stained ones which virtually match my flooring and I have made seat pads for them for comfort. One day I might decide to sand them and paint them ivory instead. That is the flexibilty of these stools, you can change the way they look which is difficult with metal or plastic. It also means you don't have to keep paying out because you want to change the colours in your kitchen.
They aren't amazingly comfortable - they aren't an armchair - but they have been a lovely addition to my new kitchen and have enhanced the country kitchen feel. I would recommend them.
Summary: Nice country style stools, add a seat pad for comfort.
