13 wonderful wishbone counter stools and wishbone bar stools…
Wishbone stools. Have you heard of them? If you haven’t heard of them, you’ve definitely seen them. The design is a staple of the mid-century modern look that is so popular right now.

The wishbone chair was designed by Hans Wegner and first manufactured in 1950. The original name for the chair wasn’t “wishbone”…it was much less sexy and descriptive. Its title was simply CH24.
The curved-back with two simple vertical slat design was wildly popular then, and the look is making a big resurgence.
Since we finished our $1000 kitchen renovation project about a year ago, I’ve been on the hunt for new counter stools.
I spray painted our old metal counter stools ⤴️ white during the renovation project to keep them going a while longer, but I think their time has come.
So as I was hunting for my own stools, I figured I’d write up a couple of posts on different looks that I’ve been pinning and considering for our own kitchen counter space!
I hope you find that perfect wishbone stool here if that’s the look you’re after!
