Once found exclusively at restaurants and bars, counter height tables are now also popular at home. These versatile tables are a great place to gather with family and friends, be it for appetizers, cocktails or a full meal. Thinking about buying a counter height table for your own home? Here are five styles to consider. Keep in mind that the ideal height for this type of table is between 34”-36”.

#1: Industrial Style Bar Tables

An industrial-style dining table is casual, but chic— a look inspired by retrofitted lofts in old factory districts. Metal construction recalls work tables and drafting stools and promises to hold up to heavy use.


#2: Bistro Bar Tables

Recalling the charming cafes and brasseries of Paris, a French-inspired table is guaranteed to be stylish. It can be smart, too—with a shelf under the table top.


#3: Rustic Style Bar Tables

Tall, chunky tables in rustic woods are rooted in old-town pubs and bars—where raucous behavior demanded sturdiness. This hard-wearing look brings the same durability and rustic charm to your home.
