I need help finding fun, colorful, but shorter-than-average bar stools

By on Aug 16th

These guys are available in white, orange, red, and black, and adjust from 25-34 inches.

My partner and I are moving into an amazing, well-lit apartment after living in a basement apartment for the past few years. While we were looking for apartments, we made a list of the things we would have in the ideal apartment. One of mine was a kitchen-living room separated by an island, and we found it! I have spent the last week researching fun, colorful bar stools with backs that should be about 26" tall, but I haven't found one yet! 26" would be the ideal height to be able to fit our legs under the table, but most bar stools are taller.

Do you have any ideas or awesome finds to share? -Pri

The ones pictured above may be too short (they only come up to 20 1/4"), so if you want a little more on-the-nose of 26" keep reading to see what I've rounded up. Some of them are adjustable (which I recommend if your counters are currently at an odd height), some of them are funky and modern, and some of them are perfect in every way, only they may need a little customization (to make 'em colorful). Now let's play this song and get to shopping.

Here's a similar style to the ones above, but this one has that cool hand hold on the back, and adjusts between 23 and 32 inches.

How much do you love me right now for finding these? They come in purple, black, white, red, brown, silver, blue, and this fabulous pink! And they adjust from 22 to 33 inches.

How's about a little light up bar stool action? Apparently the colors and the speed of their color change is controllable, and they adjust from 21 to 31 inches.

I actually have the 29" version of these stools and I love them! They also come in a 24" size — perfect for smaller counters. They're also really light, but sturdy. AND if you'd like a more funky color, it's as easy as sanding and painting.

Speaking of stools that are an easy makeover away from awesome — this is a natural wood stool at 24" that would be really easy to paint.

Now let's get back to some funky-ass shit, like these Zuo Tickle stools in fun colors that go from 23-1/2" to 31-1/2".

Kartell makes these awesome transparent stools in three sizes — the medium size has a 25.5" height and comes in TONS of colors.

Hold the phone! What this clear acrylic wiggly bar stool lacks in color it makes up in style! And it adjust from 24 to 31 inches.

The H2 bar stool comes in several different bright colors (and one called "wenge" pictured above), and it adjusts from 23 to 32 inches.

These bar stools are 26" on-the-nose and they're a good deal for two, so you'll have money saved up to sand and paint them some funky colors.

Meet the mod Mojito bar stool. It comes with red, green, or orange, and black accent colors and adjusts from 24-inches to 32-inches.

Oh man, this one looks SO cozy! Plus the 26" version of this plushy stool comes in a bunch of fun colors, but also costs a bunch of money.

Anyone else have any leads on odd-sized, colorful bar stools?
