You can find swivel bar stools that are made out of wood or metal in lots of different styles.

When space is at a premium in your bar or around your counter top, you will want to either get a backless adjustable height stool to take up the least amount of space, or you will go for a folding counter stool. A folding counter stool will collapse the back rest, the seat, and the legs into a single thin plane, and so flattened will become highly useful for stowing away, and for transporting it from room to room, and even to an entirely new place altogether, such as a second home.
Donatella Bianchi Bar Stools, 2017-11-30 15:56:18. Bar Stools - An old tradition: Bar stools are arguably as old as bars themselves. When someone thought of putting up a relatively tall, long table that would serve as a centerpiece for a public house, it would not have taken long to think up appropriate seating. The bar is often at elbow height of a standing man of average height, for the purposes of making things easier for the bartender who serves while standing, and also to draw attention in a room. Its height meant that conventional chairs would leave patrons at chest or chin-height in relation to the bar, which is no way to enjoy some food or drink. When bar counters served as focal points for food and drink as they did in the old days, one really needed one`s hands at the right height. The obvious solution was to go to the bar counter, order food or drink, then finish it off while standing up and leave afterwards. This was fine for the utilitarian purpose of public houses, but soon people started wanting to hang out for longer. In any case, taverns and pubs profited from having customers hang around for more than just a drink or two. Bar stools were invented to provide comfort and in turn generate revenue for the owners. The height meant that the countertop was in easy reach, and the narrowness meant one could seat a large number of people at the long counter. Since then, going to the pub to meet the locals and congregating at the bar for some drinking have become traditional pastimes. It would probably be unthinkable to imagine a world without the age-old practice of chilling out with the guys or gals for a drink after work while resting one`s feet.

Bar stools should be just the right height, so they are comfortable to sit in, with adequate legroom, but close enough to the counter top for convenience. As a rough guide, aim for a gap of around 9 or 10 inches between the seat and the counter. Think about the positioning of your bar stools and leave enough space between each one for people to be able to move freely. Commercial style swivel bar stools can work well in home settings too, and are great for saving space.

Example: You may have an open floor plan and do not want to obstruct your view from one room to another. Also consider any outside views.

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.
