Randi Sampson. Bar Stools. January 11th , 2018.
What all these stools have in common is that they are made of wood. Back in the times of wild west, metal was not as prevalent as it is today, and the cowboys had to make do with the materials that were more readily accessible, in particular wood. So the cowboys had to master the art of woodworking to create these stools. The other materials the cowboys had available were natural leathers, either coming from caught wild animals, but more commonly from the cows that were slaughtered for their meat. Another thing these western saddle bar or counter stools have in common is that, just like the horse saddles, they never feature a back rest, or the arm rests. Lets look at these three styles of saddle bar/counter stools.
For those with a need to see whats happening around them, there are swivel bar stools. When seated at a bar, it is easy to become curious about whats going on behind you. The simple answer to keep guests more comfortable is to allow for swiveling. Sitting on one of these its nothing to spin to face the bar to make your order, and then turn the stool 180° to keep an eye on whats going on behind you. For those with the backyard patio bar, this means while sipping your chilled juice (or whatever libation you favor) you can keep an eye on the kids. Many homeowners have found that in redesigning their homes to better suit them, opening up the kitchen by reducing a wall to a breakfast bar has become popular. For seating at one of these what could possibly be better than a set of breakfast bar stools designed just for this case. Those with a desire for wooden bar stools because of its warmer natural look and feel will find that these are frequently upholstered in leather.
In the swinging 60s, a few people were incorporating bars into their homes and accordingly these stools began to make a small appearance in residential settings. The old wooden stools from pubs were popular but at this point we were seeing the emergence of metal and chrome stools. The wooden bar stools were found in basement or recreation room bars while the chrome and padded bar stools were most often found in living rooms and poolside. Throughout the 1960s and 1970s, most bar stool, be they commercial or residential, were 30 inches high. During the late 1980s we began to see the advent of the 24 inch bar stool. This smaller bar stool is now the most popular type of residential bar stool.
Materials and Types of Patio Bar Stools: The cardinal rule on choosing an outdoor bar stool is that it should match your patios design. Wooden stools are perfect for traditional wooden patios. But if you have a casual-looking patio, you might as well get casual stainless steel bar stools. Stainless stools are definitely a great choice for your home bar. For one thing, you can be sure that it will last for a long time. The problem with these stools, though, is that they are hard to move around because of their heavy construction. If you still want to have the casual look that a metal stool would offer, then you can settle for stools made of aluminum. Known for being ultra-light, you will have no problems moving them around. And because it is non-corrosive, aluminum patio stools would last for a long time as well. Ultra-modern chrome and vinyl padded patio bar stools and exotic rattan and bamboo stools are also available for homeowners with modern-looking and exotically designed patios.
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.
