Trending: Metallic Base Seating

By Kate Riley May 15, 2017

I added chrome base club chairs to my master bedroom because the combination of navy fabric and shiny metal appealed to me. Counter stools are available in all shapes and styles, but the ones that have caught my eye lately add a bit of bling. We add metallic finishes to spaces with hardware, lighting, and faucets, why not with the bases of our chairs and counter stools too?

Contemporary brass based console and accent tables are nothing new, the design community has been decorating with them for years. Today it’s nice to see more and more metallic based seating options with stools and chairs featuring gold, silver, and copper bases as an alternative to iron or wood feet. The detail adds a pleasant shimmer and sophisticated touch, like the perfect piece of jewelry that makes the outfit.

Some friends hired me to offer some design advice on furniture for their new home, and they also wanted metal based counter stools for their long island. They opted for chrome based stools to coordinate with their polished nickel hardware, but these are a few other favorites I spied in my search along with a few great chairs too.


mica gold club chair  /  rake brass  /  erin gold bar chair

sheepskin & gold director’s chair  / rose gold bar stool / safavieh velvet

 johnson acrylic / farah dining chair / nuevo chi stool

marcelle dining chair (set of two) / constantine stool  / gary bar stool

Which one is your favorite? Hard to choose, right?!



  1. Love the bling in the stools! My fav was the last pic (black seats/chrome base). Wow, those stools really made the room. Great job!
