Bar Stools. Sunday , January 14th , 2018 - 11:49:07 AM
If you decide to cover your bar stool with leather, keep in mind that leather is a natural product made from the skin of cattle. As such, there will be variations in color and texture just as there are variations in texture and color of your own skin. Generally, the more expensive the leather, the more of these imperfections you will see. The Cheaper leathers used in furniture are often corrected leather. Corrected leathers are treated, sanded and dyed to remove these imperfections. Many are even stamped with a simulated grain pattern. Corrected leathers will most often match very closely from one piece to the next and may actually look more artificial than many vinyls! Consider it a unique trait if you happen to get a barbed wire scratch mark or even a brand mark. Many people pay extra for these imperfections that prove the authenticity of their leather.
Metal Patio Bar Stools Metal bar stools are generally constructed of iron, stainless steel, or aluminum. Avoid other metals because they may not be as durable, waterproof, or stain resistant as these three. Metal stools can often be left out year round, except in very wet climates. In most cases, the stools will be more comfortable if you add removable cushions. Cushions should be removed in the fall or during heavy summer storms, and stored in a dry place. Wood Stools If you choose wood stools, look for cedar, teak, or pressure-treated pine. All three offer long-term durability and are often waterproof. Theyre also quite attractive. If you have Adirondack patio chairs or other wooden patio chairs, then wooden stools would complement the total look of your yard. In most climates, wood bar stools can be left outside during the summer and part of the fall. You may want to bring them in for very heavy summer storms. You should store them somewhere dry during the wet, cold months to prevent splintering and excess wear. Plastic Stools Molded plastic stools are affordable and weatherproof, but are less durable than other options and are often unattractive. If you live in a very hot region, the stools may not last more than one or two seasons because heat and light quickly degrade plastic. Plastic stools should also be stored in winter to prevent damage from extreme cold. Whichever type of bar stools you choose, make sure they match your home, your yard, and your lifestyle. Although its tempting to buy cheap stools, youll get more enjoyment and use out of stools designed for durability.
Chairs have been around since the early days of civilization. The ancient Egyptians fashioned richly ornamented chairs out of ebony, ivory, and carved or gilded wood. The Romans and Greeks used the same chairs as the Egyptians. In fact, there was little change on the structure of the chair until the year 1749, when a new type of chair called the stool was made. The invention of the stool is credited to a Swiss woman named Maria Schitonstool. Maria was a pathological gambler. As with other habitual gamblers, Maria had severe problems managing her money. To deal with her cash problems, Maria would often sell her furniture. There were times when Maria would not have enough money to buy wood to keep her house warm during winter. In one cold night in 1749, Maria scavenged for wooden furniture to keep her fire going. There was none left except her bed and chairs. Instead of throwing all her chairs to the fire, Maria just sawed off the back of her chairs and accidentally invented the stool. Soon her neighbors followed Marias example and made stools out of their chairs. Then stools evolved and became fashionable.
