The counter stools finally came in for the kitchen remodel I finished back in July.
This is the kitchen that we finished in four weeks (well, three weeks and 29 days :D) that I wrote about here and here. The counter stools were custom made by Nathan Anthony and upholstered in an easy-to-clean-vinyl (JF Electrify) on the front and one of Nathan Anthony's fabrics on the back.
These stools will be used by the client's grandchildren so we wanted them to be very durable and even easier to wipe off. And it didn't hurt if they were kind of fun.
What is even more fun about these stools is that the back has a personality all of its own - a little surprise when you look at them from behind ...
Because a kitchen, just like life, shouldn't be taken all so seriously. Right?
These stools will stand up well for the kids ... and also for the adults and their "red wine" fun.
It seemed like "wasted" space to me ... I don't like when just a few wine glasses and a small portion of wine is being stored like this when all the other glasses and most of the wine bottles are in other places.
You can see that we installed a new wine refrigerator and someday soon the double doors to the closet that you can see in the background above will be turned into a wine cave, so wine storage was not a necessity any longer.

I love the new buffalo horn mirror we hung above it.
And tie everything together.
