Nanette Lelievre Bar Stools January 31, 2018 19:22:28
Stools that will be used frequently or for long periods of time (dining game rooms commercial bars etc.) should typically include arms AND backs to increase comfort and decrease stress on your back and shoulders.
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.
