Bar Stools / August 7, 2018 / Barbara Christian
Before You Go
You'll also want to consider whether you want cushioned seats on your barstools. Fabric cushions add comfort, but they can be a hassle to clean after food spills. You can choose leather or vinyl instead. If you have children, you'll want your stools, including the seats, to be durable. A bar stool with a curved wooden seat can be just as comfortable—if not more so—than a cushioned seat.
Many homeowners like a midcentury modern look for their bar stools. Styles vary, from stools that look like enlarged funnels to simple curved plastic seats. A bar stool with heavy chrome legs and a thick, round vinyl seat—like those found in old soda shops and diners—is both retro and timeless. Some of these bar stools come with a cushioned seat back as well. The seat portion of both of these styles of bar stools can be found in a wide range of colors.
