There are thousands of attempts at bar stool design – meaning no bar stool designer has yet gotten it right. Bar stool design is a classic case of function forgotten by form. It is obvious to us, just by inspection (even more so by imperiling our posteriors), that bar stools are designed and selected for appearance – not for our comfort. Somewhere there has to be an annual international competition for ”The World’s Most Uncomfortable Bar stool.” Judges would sit designers in their own creations and observe their pained expressions to establish each bar stool’s discomfort index. A perennial winner must to be the grape-pattern cast iron bar stool: cast iron legs, cast iron seat, cast iron arms and cast iron back. It takes two people to move one of these horrors, and the discomfort index is just below ”The Iron Maiden” used in the Spanish Inquisition.
Now, this is something that isn’t said often enough – plain, wooden, boring stools won’t cut it in the style department. Get stools, or any other kind of tall, comfortable chairs that have personality. Regardless of whether that personality is shape, color or design – it should fit your vision.
We insist on comfortable bar stools in drinking bars. Without delving into the psychological manifestations, your drinking bar exists so we can escape from whatever is bugging us. We come to you for relief. Whether the relief comes from a bottle, from companionship, or from solitude – escaping reality is impossible when your bar stool keeps hounding our heinies back into real time.
Do you want more discreet seating, or do you want to make a design statement? Do those stools you want actually work with the space you have? The answers to those questions may very well help you with choosing the style of stools that work for your kitchen and ensure a relaxing morning meal.
