Height adjustable chair or stool for kitchen

gwloloJuly 31, 2013

I have a smallish trestle table (30inX50in) for the kitchen. This will be at the end of the galley near the window seat. I would like to add a couple more chairs for seating. I suspect that this will be the main table for the family meals and also a hangout spot for homework, coffee and paper etc. I don't think I have room for more than 2 chairs.. maybe 3 at most. This is a casual area and chairs don't need to match.. just work together. I thought to use a height adjustable chair or stool as I could use the flexibility to increase the height for counter height seating for use near the prep area or a pull up table I have at the end of a counter run. A few times a year I will cook something that requires a long prep and it sure would be comfortable to be able to pull up a chair near the prep sink. Any ideas for stools or chairs that could work?

Most adjustable kitchen seating is meant to vary between a counter or bar height. I don't know how many height adjustable options are available for table height seating. Also, you can't pull a chair up next to a counter unless there is an overhang or knee space - is that available near your prep area?
Options: You might want to look at adjustable desk chairs (like a task chair) or adjustable work stools - there might be something in a more industrial style.

I've seen a lot of stools that are good for counter or bar height, and go about 2" above table height but no lower. Room and Board has one. I haven't seen any that go from table height to counter height.
