Eulalie Dupuy Bar Stools January 30, 2018 23:06:17
34" and larger bar stools are used for counters that exceed 42" in height. Please double check your measurements before ordering a 34" seat height. These are common enough for manufacturers to produce them but most customers will need a bar stool in the 24" to 30" range.
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.
Some modern style saddle counter stools have their seat shaped in a downward curve resembling the curvature of the saddle. Despite the rectangular shape of the "floor plan" of the seat you will be able to sit on the chair looking forward as if riding and straddling the chair with your legs or you will be able to sit sideways with your legs together and your behind safely seated in the curve of the saddle seat.
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.
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.
Bar stools are very popular items of furniture which not only enhance the appearance of a room but provide versatile seating for all types of occasions. Modern bar stools come in a huge variety of designs to suit rooms of any theme and some are even made for outdoor use. From traditional wooden counter stools for rustic country kitchens to contemporary metal bar stools complete with swivel seats ideal for a home bar or games room there`s a barstool design to suit all tastes.
