I’m in love with our new Norman Mid-Century Style Counter Stools from Rove. Many of you know that we moved into a new house a few months ago. One of the critical areas that needed furniture was our new and beautiful kitchen island. You can’t have a big island like this without a stylish and comfortable place to sit! As a result, I reviewed some of my favorite modern counter stools a couple months ago, hoping to find some good options. Finally, we made our decision and couldn’t be happier with our choice!
I think these mid-century style counter stools fit in our kitchen beautifully and have that contemporary look I was going for. On top of that, they are easy to clean AND super comfortable. The backs and the wide seats make it easy for folks and family to hang out for long stretches.
Most important, the three tones of wood in the chairs bring together the mix of kitchen cabinetry, floors and other furniture pieces in the living space in a gorgeous way!
The retailer, Rove Concepts, began in 2011 with the intention of bringing hand-crafted, mid-century style furniture to the masses. I think they do an incredible job and their aesthetic is killer. Basically, I want to get everything in their shop! This stool is named after the original designer, Norman Cherner. I love the lines of these stools, and how something so utilitarian can be so beautiful!
At the same time, the price tag isn’t too bad. Plus, they were easy to put together with an allen wrench. One warning, we managed to put two of the seats on backwards. We realized this as soon as we sat down and felt how the stool was dumping us out the front. We were pretty relieved when we realized the problem! These stools feel sturdy and solid, and we are pleased with the quality.
So far, they are holding up well to the abuse my three kiddos dole out (ages 11 to 14). We’ve been able to scrub off markers and paint without much impact. I’ve even stood on them a few times to take photos from on high :).
In conclusion, if you are looking for new mid-century style counter stools, these are a great way to go! Rove did provide these stools in exchange for a review. All opinions are my own, however. Frankly, I think the stools rock!
