Which bar stools?

3 years ago

I'm shopping for barstools for my newly installed kitchen. The two barstools I'm looking at are very, very similar, so perhaps this is a slight much of a muchness question, but I'm struggling!

These are the contenders:

Option 1:

Option 2: (

Essentially I slightly prefer the look of option one because it's a cleaner design and has brushed steel base instead of chrome, but it's faux leather instead of real and isn't as comfortable as option 2.

Option 2 is more comfortable and offers the real leather, which I love. However, the design is a little fussier (side view in particular) and it's a chrome base instead of brushed steel.

Price is fine for either. This is the (mostly) finished kitchen. There will be 4 stools in an L-shape, not just 2 on the one side! These pictured are Ikea's cheapest to tide us over.

What would you go for? Quality and comfort or overall look?
