Vickie Hurley Bar Stools, 2018-01-18 11:42:47. 3. How Many Do I Need? Most newer homes and apartments with a raised counter are built to accommodate 3 bar stools. As a general rule of thumb, allow 24 from the center of one seat to the center of the next seat. A 6 foot long counter can generally accommodate 3 stools. An 8 foot counter, 4 bar stools. This obviously depends on the measurements of the particular stool in which you are interested. You can always buy an extra and use it for additional guests. 4. Metal or Wood? This is a good question. If you ask 10 retailers, youll get 10 responses. In my opinion, wood bar stools are prone to problems not encountered with welded metal bar stools. Due to the soft nature of wood (when compared to steel), screws and joints tend to come loose over time- especially wood with arms. The constant outward stress on the arms can loosen the attachment points resulting in a loose feel. Legs and stretchers (horizontal support bars) can also become loose over time resulting in an unstable and potentially dangerous bar stool. Still, there are decorating situations in which only wood will work.

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.

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.

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.
Robbie Webb Bar Stools, 2018-01-17 10:29:50. Some Types And Designs Of Stools And A Few Words About Materials Backless stools take up less room than those with a back, saving space for more seating. This is also true of stools without arm rests. One of the main advantages that stools have over chairs is that they take up less space and allow for more seating places. If you are one of those people who have a bar on the back patio of your home, then you will want to find out about outdoor bar stools. These are designed to resist the elements while retaining good looks. These too come in all sorts of different materials. Besides the obvious painted metal stools which will resist rusting, there are wooden stools too that can weather the weather so to speak, and even some plastic and bamboo. Bamboo is becoming a more popular choice for many applications due to its toughness and strength, and the fact that it grows so fast and is easy to replace. Its a very green choice for those who are concerned with sustainable materials choices.

If you have a general idea of the look and type of bar stools you are looking to purchase, it is best to search for an online furniture retailer where the pricing is much more competitive and therefor will often be priced much lower than physical retail stores. If you are buying your bar stools in bulk, often times you will be eligible for a volume discount, helping you save even more money than if you were to purchase your stools one at a time. There are also cheaper upholstery options that can help save you money as well, for example look for a vinyl or leather look-alike material if you want a leather bar stool. If you are less particular to the level of comfort your stool will provide and are more concerned with the appearance opt for an ABS plastic stool. ABS plastic, although sounds cheap and flimsy, is resistant to heat, chemicals and impact making it a viable option for bar stool seating.

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.

Ila Strong Bar Stools, 2018-01-17 10:37:00. 7. Where to Shop You can purchase stools just about anywhere at any price. Many of the major Big Box stores offer different styles and heights at very competitive prices. They typically are ready to assemble and have few, if any options. Many full service furniture stores will offer bar stools that match popular furniture groups however may not sell them apart from high-top dining groups. If they do not offer stools by themselves, you should consider looking for a specialty store. Specialty stores carry higher end stools with virtually countless options in frame styles, fabrics, finishes, heights and other options. Specializing in customization, these are the types of stores you will want to find if you desire a designer look and higher quality than the mass produced items offered elsewhere. Because specialty stores specialize in custom stools, expect to pay more than mass produced furniture. Your bar stool will be made to order in the fabric, finish, height and other options you select. Typical turn around time is anywhere from 3 to 8 weeks and may be even longer during the winter holiday season. Let your retailer know if time is a factor in your decision so they may direct you to manufacturers with quicker lead times.
