If you decide to cover your bar stool with leather keep in mind that leather is a natural product made from the skin of cattle. As such there will be variations in color and texture just as there are variations in texture and color of your own skin. Generally the more expensive the leather the more of these imperfections you will see. The "Cheaper" leathers used in furniture are often "corrected" leather. Corrected leathers are treated sanded and dyed to remove these imperfections. Many are even stamped with a simulated grain pattern. Corrected leathers will most often match very closely from one piece to the next and may actually look more artificial than many vinyls! Consider it a unique trait if you happen to get a barbed wire scratch mark or even a "brand" mark. Many people pay extra for these imperfections that prove the authenticity of their leather.
Even if you plan to purchase a bar stool that is pre-assembled ask the salesperson if it is an RTA bar stool. Many retailers will pre-assemble the bar stool and sell it at a perceived "UNBELIEVABLE PRICE". Look for bolts holding legs and other parts together. Avoid these bar stools if they are going to be used on a continuing basis.
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.
There are many materials from which stools are built. At first wood was used as the basic material. With time the designers started combinations between wood which was used in 80 percent of the stool bar and 20 percent insertion of metal. In time the elements of chrome have become more attractive and wood was replaced in many cases in 100 percent with metal. Also there are bar stools with or without backrest. The latest model one without a backrest is most often encountered in bars because it is very easy to use. The colours vary and you can find stools in the most unusual greens blues or reds colours that enhance the metal work particularly in the night clubs. The material we sit on is also important so again the options are multiple and you may go for for fabric plastic or more expensive for leather according to your personality the colours and the other furniture and décor in your room.
