Others have their saddle made of straight, flat wood, which might be a type of seat you are more used to. Round saddle bar stool Some western style counter stools have a round saddle instead of rectangular. They are still termed western counter stools for their other qualities, such as wood as the material for both their legs and the seat. They will typically have four legs, and the neighboring legs will be connected with cross bars at different heights on neighboring sides, and same heights on opposite sides, for stability and sturdiness of construction. Sometimes the legs will be made of natural branches, with their natural curvatures, giving a seat a rustic, unique look. Later, with the development of wood carving machines, the legs would become straight and of the same shape, and would feature simple circular ornaments.
Cowhide seat western saddle bar stool Cowhide is a natural cow leather that has been minimally processed, not bleached or colored. It may have been soaked in salt after the cow was skinned, and in the tannery, it might have been tanned to remove the odors and prevent shedding of hair. Wooden western bar stools would then be upholstered with that cowhide leather, using metal round top tacks, which would provide a look of a western bar stool strongly resembling a horse saddle. Sometimes, a saddle horn would be added to one side of the bar seat to complete such horse saddle bar stool.

Once restricted to the local public house in the United Kingdom and Ireland and to the imitators in North America, 30 and 24 bar stools are now common place household furniture. Not only have these stools entered into the residential furniture market but they have broken out of a centuries old mold. For centuries bar stools seemed to be of uniform size and material. Times have changed. For literally centuries, stools found in bars were 30 inches in height. Of course, the height was specifically engineered so that a person could comfortably belly up to the bar and consume much ale. The stools were generally constructed from oak or another hardwood. The stools were firmly balanced upon 4 legs that were each attached to the underside of the stool seat a few inches towards the centre from each corner. As you can imagine, having a sturdy base of support was an important element in early bar furniture.
Choosing the right material can be a little tricky when it comes to white bar stools. Metals are more durable and can last longer than wood or leather stools. However, they might not be as comfortable, and depending if you are purchasing more modern looking stools, the price for metal can be more expensive. The important thing to do is measure how much money you are willing to spend on your bar equipment. If you think spending a little extra money on a more durable material is worth it, than you should go that route. If you do not think your stools are going to be used often, than spending less money makes sense. In the end, the most important thing is just making sure you find an affordable, comfortable, classy looking, bar stool that fits your personal style. Very often you are going to find that white bar stools fit all of the criteria you have when shopping for your next bar chairs.
