Roux Bourgeois Bar Stools January 17, 2019 11:43:43
Bar Stools - Common and taken for granted: Ah, bar stools. Can any home bar ever be complete without these ubiquitous seats? 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.
Bar Stools - The new generation: Today, with the recognition of many interior design styles and themes, bar stools have been manufactured to complement the choices for public rooms. Some go for the old-school gentleman`s club feel, while others like the sleek and chic chrome and leather styling. There are some that appropriate Oriental design elements and incorporate bamboo in motif or material form, while some turn to wood and etching in the tradition of Old Europe. There are even some that use molded plastic and brushed steel for that futuristic, streamlined ambiance. And that`s not even to mention the various accouterments used in various theme bars all over the world. The seat offers a tempting canvas for stylized lettering or graphics including the ever popular Harley Davidson and Jack Daniels for instance, while chair sides would prove good grounds for scrolling artwork. Of course, for the older establishments that wish to retain an Old World charm, wicker stools are light, easily replaceable, and totally in character. Modern padded seats have to regularly have their cushions replaced, what with the constant traffic of derrieres both tight and not so. Of course, just because they are "bar" stools does not mean they are only found in bars and home bars have become increasingly popular. Man caves also tend to have their fair share of bar stools for a movie and drinks night in or just a good old knees up style party. Other house may also have a few of these seats around a kitchen counter or similar feature.
