Choosing The Right Bar Stools

  • How to Decorate Team



I just bought a 5-foot bar for my family room. I put it in the center of the back wall and put up a 36″ mirror behind it. The bar is black granite on the top and the bar is wood. I need to find 2 bar stools that swivel and something to put on the walls or furniture for either side of the bar. I guess whatever I do on one side I have to do the same on the other? I don’t know what to do.

Desperately awaiting your response,



We have a variety of barstool styles online, but with your bar’s black granite top, we suggest the Chippendale Bar Stool in black. Keep in mind, when choosing the right bar stool, be sure to check the height of the seat for a perfect fit.

As for the walls, it really depends on the current décor in your room. For a more contemporary look, try placing three of our Abstract Artwork Canvases on each side of the mirror, one over the other. If your room is more traditional, place our landscape printson either side.
