Choosing the Right Kitchen Stools

Dear Style Studio team,

My kitchen has cherry cabinets and island. I would like to know what color counter stools would match.

Looking for leather, but ordering online it hard to match cherry exactly, any suggestions.



At Ballard, we love to mix wood tones and textures … so choose a finish that compliments your cabinets.

We suggest the Montgomery Counter Stool in Black if you are looking for a stool with a back.  If you need something that can be tucked away, we recommend the Belleville Counter Stool in black.

If you really want to “shake” things up, consider our Constance Metal Counter Stools.  It always adds more interest when you introduce different finish options in a space.

Happy Decorating!
