So we moved into our house a year ago and I've been back & forth about what type of counter-stools & kitchen dining chairs to get.

Here is a recent photo of my kitchen island & table.

And here are the stools that I've narrowed down:
Either the Madeleine

Or Toledo:

I have a blank slate, for the most part. I need chairs for the kitchen table too.

So, which stools for the island?
And if the Madeleine, what color? Dark Oak? Black Oak?

The rug is being replaced as well.

I am in love with your kitchen! I have almost identical kitchen but on a much, much smaller scale. Love how you did yourdouble over side by side too. You don't see that very often. Can I ask you, where did you get your island pendants? I have been searching for a while but all oft he ones I like are over my budget.

I vote for Madeline stool... dark oak for sure!

Such a beautiful space! Enjoy it!

thank you so much!amybeth82105.18.2012 @ 09:04:29 AM

This house has been a fun, but exhausting, project. We've been in for a year and I'm finally getting around to some permanent decor.

The kitchen pendants are from Restoration Hardware. They are the small ones (and still quite big, so I can only imagine how much bigger the next 2 sizes up are!)

How about something plush like Restoration Hardware Hudson Camelback Side Chairs for the dining table?

Thanks Suzie!
I'm actually doing the Hudson chairs (2 arm & 8 side) in our dining room (we have the trestle table).

I have 2 little kids, so I'm thinking upholstered chairs in the kitchen might not be a good idea, unless they have washable slipcovers or something like that.
