If there’s one piece of furniture I have fallen head over heels in love with this year, it’s definitely this fabulous blush pink upholstered Rory Counter Stool. I stumbled on the glamorous beauty while creating a Liketoknowit post and I think about it at least once a day.

That’s exactly how I feel about this set of modern counter stools. I simply adore them, they truly are works of art.
It’s no secret modern furniture and home decor are more popular than ever! As someone who is more of an eclectic, and tends to gravitate toward rustic as well as French modern I love mixing pieces here and there! I firmly believe in the power of creating a space that you truly love, not just one that will be popular on Instagram in 2022, but obsolete a few years later. If you mix pieces you adore, you are destined to never grow tired of them. One thing is for sure, modern counter stools have the power to elevate any kitchen! They’ll look great with your favorite farmhouse, French, coastal and rustic decor.
