Pacific Green uses elements from traditional craft designs of the Pacific Islands and sustainable materials from the region to create its pieces. This leather-covered rustic bar stool has a drum-shaped bottom with metal legs accented with hairpin supports.
The Glenn bar stool from Ikea is chic and functional for a variety of reasons. It has a curved white seat and a chrome-plated frame. It’s stackable and this allows you to save some space when the stools are not in use.
The general opinion is that bar stools with backs are more comfortable than the backless ones. It’s quite logical actually. Having something to rest against is definitely comfortable and even ergonomic especially if you’re sitting on the stool for long periods of time. Backless stools can be comfortable too usually if they’re only used periodically or for short periods of time.
If kids are in the picture you’ll definitely want to weigh more heavily those characteristics such as sturdiness (to prevent their accidentally tipping over) durability and ease of cleaning. Of course if the bar stools will be used exclusively (or at least primarily) by adults you can afford to safely go with lower backs more delicate stability and swivel options.
The Arteriors wooden bar stools have thin cast iron legs and a wooden seat with hand-carved detailing. The swivel seat allows the user to adjust the height depending on the height of the counter.
The Jailhouse Back Wood Seat Swivel Stool featured here would be a good option in that case. Their design makes them coordinate well with farmhouse kitchens. Make sure you measure everything correctly. You need to measure the height of the counter from the floor to the underside. This will help you determine the proper bar stool height so it’s best to measure twice just to make sure.
