The not-so-humble breakfast bar table

The breakfast bar table is not one to be shunned or seen as a poor relation, although it can fit in a corner nicely. It can make the best use of space, whether you have acres to play with or a few square metres.

The bar table and chairs works in any kitchen. and there are several styles to choose from…

Rustic industrial chic

The rustic industrial style is a pleasing fusion between metal frames and reclaimed wood table top as seen is this breakfast bar table from the Lansdowne collection.

Lansdowne Faux Leather Industrial Bar Stools and Table

The faux leather bar stools make the ideal addition, maintaining the rustic industrial charm.

There is no need for the kitchen bar table to devoid of character, simply because it is both functional and practical. In fact, the surrounding pieces can lend itself to making the space a fantastic place to eat and snack, as well as sit and enjoy the company of a guest or two.

Lansdowne Industrial Reclaimed Wood Bookcase

Keep accessories light and simple, the perfect foil to the darker metal frames that come not just with the kitchen bar table and stools but with this industrial rustic bookcase, also from the Lansdowne Collection.

Using pieces from the same range allows for effortless symmetry but you still need an extra layer of texture to bring it all together. And what is better than traditional rugs, perfect for sitting alongside the reclaimed wood furniture with an industrial style that we have used so far.

Louis de Poortere Blue Denim Rug

We have opted for a blue rug, a fantastic patchwork design with a denim blue inlay that we love against the industrial rustic backdrop.

Farmhouse fanfare

The farmhouse style is exceedingly popular. Effortless to style, it is no wonder that when it comes to bar tables and stool, this is one of our most popular items.

And no wonder! Who doesn’t love the partnership between white painted wood, distressed in its finish, against the bare wooden table and stool tops of these bar table and stools from the Dorset collection?

Dorset Reclaimed Wood Bar Table and Stools

Functional they may be and yet, you will hard-pressed to find such beautiful examples of reclaimed wood furniture that come even close to the beauty of these items.

Keep the look natural and unforced when it comes to accessories. For example, a large bountiful bowl of fruit when not in use is perfect or why not add a lush green plant or two?

Light Raw Oak Bookcase

You can maintain this simple yet stylish look with this elegant light oak shelf ladder, simply perfect for slotting into any farmhouse kitchen. It marries perfectly against the bar table and stools set.

Louis de Poortere Black Pale Rug

We have maintained the light, airy feel to the whole look with yet another choice from our traditional rugs range. This time, we have opted to add drama with the traditional patterned pale black rug. There is an assuredness to black that means it effortlessly slots into place, perfect for sitting alongside the white frame bar table and the bare oak shelving unit.

Is a bar table and chairs something that would sit well in your kitchen?
