COUNTER STOOLS ~ WHICH ONES? HELP!

I have been looking at counter stools for a while now.
You can see a picture of the stools we currently have below.

They were fine for a few years but they were inexpensive and
 are starting to fall apart.
We use them constantly everyday so I'm looking for better quality.
I'm really tired of the black too.

I think I want something backless that doesn't compete
 with the style of our table as you can see here.


I found 5 styles that might work but I'm having a really hard time
making a decision.

No. 1


No. 2

No. 3


No. 4
This one is unfinished so I would probably paint it with chalk paint but I'm not sure of the color.


No. 5

I would love to know which ones you would choose.
If you don't like any of them, that's okay.  
I really want your honest opinion.
If you have seen any that you think would look good, 
I would love to hear about that too.

I can't wait to hear what you think!
I know you have nothing else to do today than help me 
with my counter stool dilemma!!  ha ha

  1. I think #1 looks the most like your style but #3 is fun if you want to be all modern and edgey. :)

  2. #2 has the same legs as your dining chairs and the rush seat gives warm texture!

  3. Oh my! I can see why you are having a tough time. You found so many great choices! I really think they would all work it just depends on the look your going for. Whenever I bring something new home I always save the receipt. Sometimes things look different once you bring them in. I like #2 and #3

  4. I love #2 the stain will add a warm touch!! I look at those stools in Ballards all the time.

  5. I love them all! The last one is great but to make it even more comfy, there is a variation that dips in the middle...I think it's called a saddle seat. Overstock was a great help when we looked at seats. Good luck, dear!

  6. I like #1 and #5. I think either one of those would look great with your table and chairs. However, if you chose #4 you could paint them a fabulous aqua! I guess I'm not much help! : ) I know whatever you decide will look great!

  7. #1 gets my vote.

    They're all nice but I would stick with black over brown is all.

  8. They are all lovely but my first choice would be #3! You have wood, so a mix of a little vintage industrial would be nice! My second choice would be #2 or 5. I know, it's such a difficult choice!! Sometimes you have to buy one and see.....! Love your style! Blessings~~~Roxie

  9. I think if you want something different--don't go with the rush seat stools. They are pretty but I would go totally different--but that is just me. I would go with #3 or #5 and paint aqua or other fun accent color...

  10. Number 4 is my favorite and I would paint it either Aqua or White.

  11. I am going with number 3 - I am just liking the look of metal mixed with wood and granite in a kitchen. I was photographing a metal chair today for my daily Instagram pic and I was thinking how much fun a set of those metal chairs would be.

  12. one thing to think about is how long are you going to be sitting on the stools. i would not be able to sit very long on a seat that does not have a back. i like this one and i looks like your chairs http://www.potterybarn.com/products/napoleon-barstool/?pkey=e%7Ccounter%2Bstools%7C20%7Cbest%7C0%7C1%7C48%7C%7C13&cm_src=PRODUCTSEARCH||NoFacet-_-NoFacet-_-Barstool%2C%20Bar%20Stool .

  13. I really like the style of no. 3 but I think no. 5. would look great with your existing dining chairs. I look forward to seeing what you choose. It will look great whatever you decide. I do think a backless stool that can be pushed under the counter will open up the space too. Good luck.

  14. I like your kitchen and dining set very much - style and color. I would choose no. 1, or no. 2 painted aqua or turquoise. Can't wait to see what you choose. Greetings, Nada

  15. I vote #1 definitely. They will be more comfortable, they are white, and they go with your table the best.

  16. I'd pick number one, I think it would really fit in with your room while adding a little extra bit of texture.

  17. I like the texture that the seats would give in No. 1 and 2.

  18. I love the number 1, the rush seating with the white...that would be my choice. Very pretty! Your kitchen looks so pretty.

  19. I like three, four and five. I think the caning might get "ratty" after awhile and spilled food might not look too great on it. I like the classic look of the last three, and maybe No. 5 the best and painted a light blue (turquoise?) would be nice--will match the "pops" in your kitchen.
