I'm not a big fan of counter stools. I'm short, and when I sit on a stool I always feel perched precariously, a step higher than I should be off the ground. But I'm smitten by these bar and counter stools, created by Robert Ogden for Lostine, and sold through Anthropologie. They look solid and sturdy (no tipping) with an easy leather seat and a comfy footrest. They're too dear for me, but I sincerely hope someone buys them for their kitchen and sends me a photo.
