If it's the down to earth look with grand fine points you are after then this is the metal you want your bar stools to be made out of and in many cases most bar stools of the quality will come with a back rest. Wrought Iron Is so unexpectedly tough, this is good as their legs can be very fine and still not collapse under the weight. The finishes are often a little bit duller with tones of silver, grey and bronze. This makes them a great asset because it's easier to tie them in with your décor. A great metal for stools.

There was not much call for aesthetic modifications, and life back then was generally plain-looking by today's standards. If you have seen movies depicting the medieval or Middle Ages, then you will be familiar with the rough-hewn appearance of their furniture. They were often unpadded as well, so sitting for long periods of time was not an attractive prospect. The Renaissance saw a sudden uprising in the call for beauty, and everything became covered with carvings and etchings. These bar stools were no exception, and their long legs in particular were made more aesthetically ornate. Padding as part of the seat and not as a separate cushion was also introduced. Not surprisingly, not everyone could afford these fancy seats, so the simple designs were still common in the seedier bars and public houses. This disparity is important to consider, since it has led to the richness of choice that we have today. In the previous century, every decade saw changes in popular fashion and aesthetics, so public houses changed their appearance regularly. Those periods saw the use of chrome, leatherette, rotating seats, and polyurethane foam. These stools became fixtures around counters, literally speaking. Being bolted to the floor, their fixed nature prevented them from being used in the inevitable bar brawl. Alcohol seems to often lead to violence of some sort, and many a bar has seen destruction at the hands of inebriated patrons. At least, the stools would be spared too much damage.

If you have a general idea of the look and type of bar stools you are looking to purchase, it is best to search for an online furniture retailer where the pricing is much more competitive and therefor will often be priced much lower than physical retail stores. If you are buying your bar stools in bulk, often times you will be eligible for a volume discount, helping you save even more money than if you were to purchase your stools one at a time. There are also cheaper upholstery options that can help save you money as well, for example look for a vinyl or leather look-alike material if you want a leather bar stool. If you are less particular to the level of comfort your stool will provide and are more concerned with the appearance opt for an ABS plastic stool. ABS plastic, although sounds cheap and flimsy, is resistant to heat, chemicals and impact making it a viable option for bar stool seating.

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.

Stools aren't just for the bar anymore. More and more households have them as furniture. The great advantage of a bar stool is that its height enables you to sit right at the counter height. If you have a large kitchen with an island in it, a few bar stools let you turn that island into a breakfast table or a place to relax and read the newspaper. Here are a few of the best styles of bar stools available:

If you just want a stool to belly up to a small bar, then a backless style might be perfect. These stools may or may not have swivels, but they usually have footrests. They don't block the view of the bar and are great for short stints of sitting.

These are light weight and very hard wearing, just like steel it is also rust proof. This makes the bar stool a prime choice for areas such as kitchens or bars where the bar stools are likely to be getting shifted about quite a bit and hence they are easy to handle. Any bar, restaurant or business could utilize these qualities to help bring a more pleasant experience to their patrons.

For example, a plastic stool will look terribly out of place when placed next to a beautiful cherry bar. Likewise, an ultra modern stool would look out of place in an Old English style pub. You want your stool to match and blend in or accent the rest of your room's décor.
