Kitchen Inspiration

Jun 06, 2017  By Thomasville

Our kitchens do the heavy lifting in our homes. They’re hard-working, functional rooms, where we cook, eat, and gather together, and pass through countless more times each day. Finding the right kitchen furniture is about finding the pieces that enable the kitchen to do its job. If you think your kitchen could do better, but you’re not quite sure how just yet, let these ideas give you some inspiration:

If your family gathers at the counter, the Dalton bar stool from Lexington’s Twilight Bay collection gives you comfort and style. The hand-woven rush swivel seat, concave back, and serpentine vertical supports allow family or guests to linger comfortably for as long as they like. Meanwhile, the Driftwood finish and metal details make a style statement in your kitchen furniture whether or not the seats are occupied.


For ultimate functional flexibility in your kitchen furniture, complement the stools with the Meredith console and hutch. The console has two drop-front drawers that can accommodate media components for kitchen entertainment, and shelves you can use for display or storage. The hutch has a removable lower shelf that allows room for a television. Both are shown in the Antique Linen finish, but they’re also available in Chestnut.


Finish the look with the Shelter Island Bistro Table. The hammered stainless steel top with pewter nailhead trim ties the table to the Dalton bar stools, and is available in the same Antique Linen and Chestnut finishes as the Meredith console and hutch. The built-in drawers give kitchen storage back to you, allowing you to keep table linens, placemats, and silverware right where they’re used.

Or if you want your kitchen furniture to create a sense of island ease, look to the South Beach swivel counter stool. It features bent rattan, leather bindings, and plush upholstery, making it simultaneously airy and sturdy.


For a contemporary kitchen, picture the Cabana swivel bar stool from the Tommy Bahama Home Ocean Club collection. The horizontal slats across the back give a fresh angle to seating, and allow the contrasting fabric (shown in the standard Golden Bamboo) to keep the look of your kitchen furniture light and airy.


The Newstead stool, in counter and bar heights, brings terrific versatility to your kitchen furniture. If you would like to be able to accommodate seating at both heights, you can maintain a consistent look with this versatile style from Tommy Bahama Home’s Ivory Key collection.

With the right kitchen furniture for your home, your life, and your family, you can make the most of what your kitchen is ready to do for you. Come talk to our designers if your kitchen is ready for a boost.
