Anyway, we will have a breakfast bar at the new house and I suspect it will be used on a daily basis, particularly by the kids. So I've been searching high and low for some nice stools and here are a few options I've found.
This bar stool, designed by Erik Buch, comes in a variety of different upholstery colours.

Then there's these angle leg timber stools from Mark Tuckey which also come in a variety of different colours.

These wicker stools are from also from Mark Tuckey. But as the kids will be using them, I don't think they would be very practical (my children are messy eaters!)

UPDATE: OK I finally found them, phew. The Steelwood Stool is by French design team Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec.
I really like these beautiful birch stools (in natural or stained black) with built-in backrests:
|Artek Alvar Aalto K65 - low back stool|
|Artek Alvar Aalto 64 - kitchen/bar stool|
Can you believe this stool was designed back in 1933, which is about the same time our house was built. And it still looks great today... (the stool, not the house.)
