Sometimes you just need a little kitchen refresh and ours came in the form of new counter stools from Kathy Kuo Home, in addition to a rustic styling overhaul of the entire space. Gone are the days of white linen chairs - not the most toddler friendly material regardless of their "high-performance" stature. You may remember those counter stools from our Manhattan apartment! While they served us in that space, I never truly felt like the look of them translated into what I envisioned for our brownstone home. Even looking at the before and after shots, they feel heavy and clunky in comparison to the new ones.
