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.

These stools have a longer, rectangular seat, and the middle is lower than the ends. Many people feel that these stools are more comfortable than normal wooden stools.
Berta Russo Bar Stools, 2017-11-27 16:25:22. 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.

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.

They will fit a bar top that is typically between 40 and 42 inches high to accommodate eating a quick bite or sipping a quick drink, either at breakfast time when you are in a rush to get to work, or when you are ready for a quick snack during the day.

These finishes are by far more chip and scratch resistant than "spray painted" finishes. In addition to a more durable surface a powder coated finish is much less likely to be damaged by cleaning products than a painted finish.

In my opinion, wood bar stools are prone to problems not encountered with welded metal bar stools. Due to the soft nature of wood (when compared to steel), screws and joints tend to come loose over time- especially wood with arms. The constant outward stress on the arms can loosen the attachment points resulting in a loose feel. Legs and stretchers (horizontal support bars) can also become loose over time resulting in an unstable and potentially dangerous bar stool. Still, there are decorating situations in which only wood will work.
