Serena and Lily Riviera Backless Counter Stools in Fog / Navy and White Napkins / Cream Eyelash Sweater / Paige Hoxton Jeans

Recently, I updated our kitchen counter stools with the Serena and Lily’s beautiful Riviera Backless Counter Stools and they asked me to share our “Life at the Kitchen Counter” story with you today.

Like so many of you, the kitchen is the heart and hub of our home. When we remodeled our home six years ago, my dream was to have a really large kitchen island where our family could gather and many things could be going on at once while I cooked.

Whether the girls are painting and crafting or doing homework while I make dinner, it has been everything we wanted it to be. We’ve made our own Christmas wrapping paper here, baked countless Christmas cookies and during the holidays each girl and helps my mom make her famous dinner rolls. There of been countless nights with our whole family gathered around the kitchen counter laughing and talking and solving the problems of the world!

Every day after school and on weekends, our kitchen counter is the center of activity so our stools get A LOT of use!  I love the gray and white combination.  It highlights my silver and white decor perfectly.  I am a big fan of rattan and love the sturdy high-quality construction of these barstools.  When we have friends over, this is where everyone congregates so sturdy is a must!

The Serena and Lily Riviera Backless Counter Stools are the latest addition to their popular Riviera Collection, an fresh approach to the classic 30s French Bistro design. The woven plastic is easy care, too.  Just a quick wipe with a damp towel and all traces of what happens at our kitchen counter is gone!  The ultimate kid-proof chairs and stools!

I chose the backless design to help create more space in our kitchen but also love their bar and counter stools with backs as well.  I’ve gathered all my favorites below for you.  Let me know your favorite!

Here’s to many more family memories at the kitchen counter.  I can’t wait for my oldest to come home at Thanksgiving and join us again!
