Unwind Bar Area

Apart from an increasing bar table area in cafes and restaurants recently, open kitchens at home are being widely designed to integrate dining and living rooms for a continuous expression. Here Establo consolidated part of the Scandinavian designed bar/counter chairs and stools by style and type of backrest for everyone.
