Jocelyn Chauveau Bar Stools January 31, 2018 18:07:11
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.
Wood Bar Stools: Wood bar stools are typically offered in a few stains or painted colors. Look for chip-resistant finishes and/or stains which are sealed to protect the wood as well as the underlying finish. Look for metal protectors on the foot-rest as any painted or finished wood subject to the wear and tear of people`s feet will wear through over time. Many manufacturers intentionally distress their finishes to provide a used or worn look. Some more expensive wood bar stools feature rich multi-step finishes that can be custom matched to you particular needs.
This is a good question. If you ask 10 retailers you`ll 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.
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.
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.
When you are decided to pick a black leather bar stool sometimes termed counter stool either of a wood finish a contemporary chrome finish or a black metal finish to go with your existing bar top then you already know that a black leather bar stool will be an elegant and classy complement to your kitchen or bar area. Complementing a stainless steel finish kitchen with a chrome finish black leather stool will work as will complementing a wood-based kitchen style with a black leather and wood finish.
