Nanette Lelievre Bar Stools January 31, 2018 22:07:22
Bar Stools - Common and taken for granted: Ah bar stools. Can any home bar ever be complete without these ubiquitous seats? With their simple designs they are easy to integrate into any bar setting. With some creative flair one can turn them into eye-catching accents to any room. They are tall and narrow made that way so that pub or bar patrons can sit and drink with the counter at elbow height or thereabouts. These often utilitarian seating options also have footrests so that patrons would not experience discomfort from their legs hanging off the edge of the seat. This basic design of seat long legs and footrest has been the norm since the inception of bars and public houses themselves. They have become so common that we tend to take them for granted. When was the last time you walked into a bar and took a good look at the stools before plopping down for a drink or two? Have you ever thought about how well these seats were designed for the specific purpose of being used at a bar? More likely than not you are likely to be amongst many who have never stopped to appreciate the common and simple things like these. The next time you see one of these iconic seating items try considering its history and style.
Here a swivel feature of the bar stool seat is understood where the entire seat possibly with the back rest and the armrests is rotated. Why are there so many variants of swivel bar stools for sale? The reason is simple: The swivel function enables an easy access to and an easy exit from the bar counter stool. Bar counter stools are typically 30 inches high or more which is almost double the height of the sitting surface of a regular chair. So one practically needs to climb into a stool to seat in place. Consequently there is no way one could push the chair closer to the bar or counter - the legs are hanging in the air when seated. Therefore the way to get closer to the table bar or counter is to swing into it hence the swivel option.
