Kitchen Stools

Last week it was marble—this week it's the accessories. I've been looking for our kitchen stools and still trying to make a final decision. Our space is limited (40" total width to be exact), so I need something small and compact. Each stool can't be wider than 17" each.

Three design options keep coming back to me:

I do love the idea of adding a simple skirt to the stool. My good friend Shannon Cook has great taste and I always leave her house jealous inspired with ideas for mine. She has similar stools in her kitchen and I've always admired them. See her kitchen below.

2) I also love this slipcover look. The kitchen below, designed by Molly Frey, is one of favorites.

These stools below are from Ballard Designs and are a whopping $349 each, which I find pretty ridiculous for what it is.
These below are much more affordable from Pottery Barn—and I like them better too...

3) I've also thought about using these simple stools from Ballard...

And my mom has these stools and I love them too... many options to choose from. But no matter what, I keep coming back to the simple industrial stools from Wisteria. That's probably what I'll end up purchasing, but still not 100% so any suggestions are welcomed.

If I had a bigger space I'd think about something bolder with a comfortable back like these...
And like everything, they're a million ways to do it and they all could work and look great...hopefully!
