In many homes, the kitchen is a happening spot with meal preparation, family meetings, and loads of casual conversation over a cup of coffee or glass of wine. This spacious and sunny kitchen is very inviting with its hardwood flooring, pale green cabinetry, apron front sink, and the flexible seating offered by the backless industrial stools. Industrial decor is all the rage these days, and we often read about it in blogs and see examples of it on home design sites. From pieces that are salvaged and restored to authentic reproductions, industrial decor can bring home a touch of the Industrial Revolution to any room.
These stools resemble our Industrial Factory Backless Stool, a real beauty straight out of the Machine Age when American steel manufacturing was in high gear and furniture created from it took on a sleek, minimalist look. These work stools were often found in factories, warehouses, and drug stores but their timeless design is making a comeback in homes and offices where people need portable and flexible seating.
Manufactured exclusively for Barn Light Electric, these vintage stools feature a fixed, solid black walnut seat that is 13″ across. The stool measures 28″ high which makes it perfect for a work station or for tucking under the edge of the kitchen island. Or how about in front of the workbench in the garage? These handy stools, crafted entirely from steel, could complement a variety of home styles from a ranch home or urban loft to a coastal cottage. Choose from a classic black or galvanized finish for a rustic look or go with the bold red for a more retro feel.
If you prefer a stool with a back, you’re in luck! We also offer the Industrial Factory Stool, American made from solid steel just like its backless cousin, complete with a back rest and a swivel, solid black walnut seat.
