Chinoiserie Stools

One of the most frequent emails I receive is from readers asking about my Chinoiserie counter stools pictured below. I bought them from Ballard Designs a couple of years ago and they are unfortunately no longer available. But today and tomorrow we will look at some options that are available. Today we look at high end choices. Above are some lovely vintage bar stools recently sold on 1st dibs. Keep a lookout for vintage versions, generally in metal faux bamboo. These are made of solid brass and are from the fifties.

These stunning Chinese Chippendale Stools can be ordered in bar or counter height with or without arms in standard or custom colors.

This beautiful Indoor/Outdoor Iron Bamboo Stool from The Well Appointed House is available in standard and custom colors.


  1. This is unrelated to bar stools but I wanted to mention that One Kings Lane has your china pattern (home, james!) pictured for sale today. I love reading your blog!

  2. Mad about the red bar stool.
    It is fantastic.
