Have you ever ridden a horse? When you sit in a saddle seat bar stool you get back the feeling of being in the saddle and this adds to the illusion of the grand old wild west times. We will explore here three types of western bar or counter stools which will suit several different tastes and occasions. We`ll talk about modern bar stool round saddle stool and cowhide seat western saddle bar / counter stool. What all these stools have in common is that they are made of wood. Back in the times of wild west metal was not as prevalent as it is today and the cowboys had to make do with the materials that were more readily accessible in particular wood. So the cowboys had to master the art of woodworking to create these stools. The other materials the cowboys had available were natural leathers either coming from caught wild animals but more commonly from the cows that were slaughtered for their meat.
You can buy a bar stool for as little as $9. Typically bar stools less than $100 are "RTA" or "Ready to Assemble". This means that the bar stool must be bolted together by the customer. Using as many as FIFTY (yes I once sold a stool that required 50 bolts) bolts legs must be attached seats must be attached arms back seat frame etc. Every bolt used to assemble a bar stool is a potential problem. Everyday use will loosen bolts over time resulting in a potentially dangerous situation if you do not periodically check the tightness of all the bolts. Even worse many RTA stools use thin-walled metal with no additional support for the bolt`s threads to grasp. I have seen hundreds of these lower quality stools that will easily strip threads simply by being assembled. Additionally lower priced stools are typically sold one way: one color one fabric no options.
The rattan and bamboo are only two types of wood used in designing modern bar stools and are making a come-back with a slight retro feel. The contrast brought by bar stools makes a huge difference in the appearance comfort and function of a house. There are many things to be taken into account when you have to decide what seats you want to buy. The most important decisions are those regarding the height of the stool bar the size of the bar and the design style that you preffer.
Metal or Wood? This is a good question. If you ask 10 retailers you`ll get 10 responses. 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.
