Discover Here How To Choose A Bar Stool For Your Kitchen

Bar Stool – A perfectly designed set of bar stool is a great way to compliment a dining room or kitchen in mid-century modern, transitional or glamour style. Today, Best Design Books decided to show you how to choose a bar stool for your kitchen. Take a look:     One of the most important decisions for your home bar or kitchen island is how to choose the right bar stool height. There is a key distinction to be made between bar stools v counter stools; a counter stool is usually around 24 inches (or around 61 centimetres), meanwhile, a bar stool is typically 30 inches (or around 76 centimetres). There is, of course, some variation here and counter stools can vary up to 29 inches (74 centimetres) with bar stools also reaching up to 36 inches (91 centimetres). CHOOSE YOUR FABRIC  LEATHER TEXTILE If you will use your stools where food is served, consider a low-maintenance material, such as leather, wood or metal. CHOOSE YOUR STYLE  INDUSTRIAL CLASSIC Decide how many stools you can fit. It’s important to provide enough space between stools for people to eat, drink, and socialize without bumping elbows.     YOU MAY ALSO LIKE: Contemporary Street Style: Bring…

Book Of The Week: Maria Svarbora, Swimming Pool 

Article originally published on March 24, 2020  Maria Svarbora – Swimming Pool is a design book photographed by Maria Svarbora, being her largest and continuing series. Best Design Books elected this as the book of the week. Join us and discover why!   Born in 1988, the Slovakian photographer Maria Svarbova originally studied conservation-restoration and archeology before dedicating herself to photography in 2010. Maria’s distinctive style departs from traditional portraiture and focuses on experimentation with space, color, and atmosphere. Sparked by a hunt for interesting locations in Slovakia, her fascination with the space of public swimming pools contributed to developing her visual style. Sterile, geometric beauty of old pools, usually built in the Socialist Era, set the tone for these photographs. There is almost a theatrical quality to the highly controlled sceneries that Maria captures. The figures are mid-movement, but there is no joyful playfulness to them. Frozen in the composition, the swimmers are as smooth and cold as the pools tiles. The colors softly vibrate in a dream-like atmosphere. Despite the retro setting, the pictures somehow evoke a futuristic feeling as well, as if they were taken somewhere completely alien.   What do you think about Maria Svarbora‘s book? Feel…
