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.
The obvious use of a breakfast bar stools at home is at a breakfast bar or a kitchen island. Functioning in the same manner as they were first designed for a western saloon, they allow for a place to sit for a family or an individual to grab some food or read the newspaper. They take up little room, which makes them very popular for small studio apartments, and can be tucked away under an island unit to disappear completely allowing for more space.
