Jacqualine Pruvost Bar Stools July 26, 2017 20:39:17
When you would like to establish that wild west cowboy feel in your home but you have modern style kitchen furniture and fixtures then you should consider modern style saddle counter stools. They will still be made of wood.
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.
Backless stools are great when you need occasional extra seating or in situations where you don`t want to obstruct a view with tall backs. Example: You may have an open floor plan and do not want to obstruct your view from one room to another. Also consider any outside views. If your game room or kitchen faces a lake or river for example you may not want backs extending above your counter that may obstruct your view.
Saddle Bar stools: A great new style that is becoming increasingly popular is the wooden saddle bar stool. These stools have a longer rectangular seat and the middle is lower than the ends. Many people feel that these stools are more comfortable than normal wooden stools.
Metal bar stools which are welded at all joints are far less prone to these problems. In addition many companies have dozens of finishes fabrics and options available for a given style. For example you may like a stool that is shown on our retail floor as a stationary (non swivel) stool with arms. In many cases you can custom order the same style as a swivel armless swivel with arms stationary without arms or even a backless.
When deciding which bar stools to buy remember to take accurate measurements of the space available to ensure a comfortable fit. Bar stools should be just the right height so they are comfortable to sit in with adequate legroom but close enough to the counter top for convenience. As a rough guide aim for a gap of around 9 or 10 inches between the seat and the counter. Think about the positioning of your bar stools and leave enough space between each one for people to be able to move freely. Commercial style swivel bar stools can work well in home settings too and are great for saving space.
