They are still termed western counter stools for their other qualities, such as wood as the material for both their legs and the seat. They will typically have four legs, and the neighboring legs will be connected with cross bars at different heights on neighboring sides, and same heights on opposite sides, for stability and sturdiness of construction.

Sometimes, a saddle horn would be added to one side of the bar seat to complete such horse saddle bar stool.

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.

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:

Thus, they can allow you to have more space in your patio bar. And that is not the only advantage of having stools for your bar.
Corina Pacheco Bar Stools, 2018-02-24 08:15:22. The cardinal rule on choosing an outdoor bar stool is that it should match your patio's design. Wooden stools are perfect for traditional wooden patios. But if you have a casual-looking patio, you might as well get casual stainless steel bar stools. Stainless stools are definitely a great choice for your home bar. For one thing, you can be sure that it will last for a long time. The problem with these stools, though, is that they are hard to move around because of their heavy construction. If you still want to have the casual look that a metal stool would offer, then you can settle for stools made of aluminum. Known for being ultra-light, you will have no problems moving them around. And because it is non-corrosive, aluminum patio stools would last for a long time as well.

As with other habitual gamblers, Maria had severe problems managing her money. To deal with her cash problems, Maria would often sell her furniture. There were times when Maria would not have enough money to buy wood to keep her house warm during winter. In one cold night in 1749, Maria scavenged for wooden furniture to keep her fire going. There was none left except her bed and chairs. Instead of throwing all her chairs to the fire, Maria just sawed off the back of her chairs and accidentally invented the stool. Soon her neighbors followed Maria's example and made stools out of their chairs. Then stools evolved and became fashionable.
Alta Haney Bar Stools, 2018-02-24 08:16:35. In the old days bar stools were strictly utilitarian, just wooden pieces nailed together to form sturdy seats. 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.
Amelia Woods Bar Stools, 2018-02-24 08:15:48. 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.
