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.
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.
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.
