It seems like the standard scope of kitchen seating has gotten a major revamp in years past as an increasing number of dwellers move to embrace the whole counter-culture movement. Perhaps it's something that can be attributed to the casual nature of the common household as of late — meals exclusively reserved for stuffy dining rooms are a dwindling scene — but it's safe to say that nowadays, most homes come outfitted with a spanning kitchen island that is paired with one standout element: chic counter stools.

And while styles will inevitably vary across the board, there is one specific piece we've seen in home tour after home tour: leather bar stools. Stylistically, they may differ, but the overall idea is the same — a rich, leather seat paired with a steel base.

Ahead, we look to the spaces that encapsulate the trend and explore the style-focused ways with which you can bring the look home. See for yourself.
