Bar stools are generally tall and have a foot rest to support your feet. The height can either be fixed or adjustable. Some Stools can also swivel 360 deg and are suitable for Bar Areas, Kitchen Nooks and Pubs. There are Chairs with and without armrests, backs, and padding or upholstery on the seat surface.
The normal seat height for a Stool is 30″ (76 cm) with a 26″ (66 cm) stool being used against kitchen counters. Extra tall 36″ (91 cm) stools are increasingly used in contemporary styles with high pub tables to create a visual effect in modern interiors. Counter height Chairs have a seat height of 24″ (61cm). By comparison a conventional dining chair seat height is 18″ (46 cm).
These Stools are a growth area in the consumer market and online purchasing is on the increase.
Both wooden and metal Stools, including stainless and chrome styles and adjustable height features are popular.
