If you’re anything like me then it’s the bar stools that I always make my way towards when walking into a cafe or bar. There’s something good about sitting perched on a stool enjoying a frothy cup of coffee and a cheeky slice of chocolate cake. So I thought that for this week’s post I’d write about the advantages of one particular stool – the ladder back bar stool.
ADVANTAGES OF LADDER BACK BAR STOOLS
Comfort and support
If you’ve ever clambered onto a backless bar stool you’ll know that not long after sitting on it you find yourself slumping and having to make a conscious effort to pull yourself up and straighten back those shoulders. After a prologed duration in said stool you may also find that your lower back starts to feel sore. The advantage of a ladder back stool lies in the word ‘back’. Resembling the rungs of a ladder (hence its name) the back of the stool gives good support to the person seated and makes for a more comfortable seating experience. This has to be good for the cafe owner too, since the more comfortable a person feels when sitting, the more likely they are to order another drink and perhaps some food to go with it. Billy bonus!
Sometimes a person can feel a little isolated or uncomfortable when sitting in a cafe or bar by themselves. The great thing about ladder back stools (or any bar stool for that matter) is that you can easily engage with the person sitting next to you at the bar, or the barista when he’s got a spare moment. Stools lend themselves perfectly to interaction and communicate a casual feel, which is surely what you want in a welcoming and friendly cafe or bar.
Tall bar stools serve as feature seating since they stand tall and lofty to make a bold statement. Our ladder back stools lend a modern twist to what is an extremely traditional style of chair which means they’ll slot into a traditional or modern setting. The majority of our ladder back chairs feature an upholstered seat cushion in easy clean vinyl – just perfect for busy cafe and bar owners. In gorgeous shades of caramel, chocolate, charcoal, and black against a light oak or dark walnut frame – the hardest part is deciding which one to choose.
Ladder back chairs were one of the first styles of chair manufactured on a mass basis and because of their simplistic style and few pieces, they were cheap and economical to make while also being strong and durable. The same can be said for our ladder back stools which feature oak or walnut frames. Solid and robust, they’re also easy to move to wherever you need them.
