What is boho?
The bohemian style represents an eclectic mix of colors and textures – coming together to create a relaxed, laid back, and vintage look. Therefore, boho decor doesn’t have to “fit together” perfectly, instead, you can incorporate various colors (think black and white with a bolder trending color) and still have it look good.
Additionally, if you’re going for that boho style, we recommend low-level seating. Similarly, lots of plants, different patterns and a mix of different lighting sources are all indicative of the bohemian style.
Above all, bohemian style is definitely its own aesthetic…and it’s super popular right now. If you would like to explore the key elements of boho style in more depth, check out this article.
Why should I have bar stools on my kitchen island?
I’ll start by saying that I realize bar stools aren’t for everyone. For some, it’s a type of home decor that just doesn’t cut it. However, I’m a big fan of stools at the kitchen bar. Here’s why.
Firstly, counter stools allow an informal place in your kitchen for people to gather. My kids love to do their homework at counter height or chat with me while I cook dinner.
Secondly, it’s a great place for guests to have a drink at your home bar before heading into the dining room for dinner. Hanging out at the kitchen counter before dinner is casual, but also better than being removed in the living room without the cook.
Thirdly, there isn’t a specific “trending” stool that you need to incorporate into your home design. This is especially true with the bohemian style interior design. Therefore, you can get so creative with bar stools! Some people love upholstered bar stools while others love stool features such as backrests or swivel seats. There are seriously so many options!

How to find the right boho bar stools:
Before we dive into the actual bar stools to put in your kitchen, I wanted to share some quick tips with you on how to find the PERFECT stools for you!
Firstly, use a plethora of different textures and colors. Some people prefer metal bar stools to solid wood. With the boho style, you can have a mixture of both! Seriously, the possibilities are endless.
Secondly, use both natural and vintage touches when creating that bohemian kitchen look. The 60’s and 70’s hippie era definitely influenced boho decor. We’re talking LOTS of raw materials. Additionally, boho style encompasses a lot of vintage pieces (that often tell a story)…so you want to be on the lookout for that second-hand look. Whether you find bamboo kitchen stools or rattan bar stools, you can’t go wrong.
Thirdly, make sure you measure before purchasing bar furniture! You want to make sure that your bar stools are the right height for wherever you’re placing them. It’s always awkward when you have bar chairs at a tall bar that just aren’t high enough.
So, on the best boho bar stools…
