Once upon a time if you were asked to imagine a bar stool it probably conjured up visions of beer stained carpets, the smell of stale smoke and the odd drunk. Now however bar stools aren’t solely for the purpose of the propping up a bar. Instead they can also be used to great effect in many other ways.
In the home
Breakfast bars are coming full circle and once again the humble bar stool complements them perfectly. The good news is that they don’t have to be uncomfortable wooden ones in depressing shades of brown. Nowadays, bar stools come in a wide variety of materials such as chrome and leather, brushed steel and even plastic and are made in just about every colour under the sun. That means that if you’re looking for an electric blue stool with pink dots to match your décor then there’s a pretty good chance you’re going to find it. They can also help to create a relaxed and informal dining experience and let’s face it, kids just love sitting on them.
In the office
There’s also an increasing demand to put bar stools into office spaces. If you’ve got a dead area in your office layout, then why not enhance it with a selection of modern bar stools. It creates a relaxing area where people can communicate on a comfortable and probably informal level.
In a café
Bar stools also work really well on a pavement café Just imagine them scattered between a multitude of high tables to make for an informal and relaxing experience. The iconic Tolix bar stool for example comes in a rainbow of vibrant funky colours and when grouped together can certainly turn heads. Try mixing burnt oranges with deep purples and lime greens with sunburst yellow for that perfect ‘stand out’ look. Alternatively keep it simple with light beechwood tables and chrome bar stools for a Mediterranean feel.
As you can see the humble bar stool is as flexible as the colours and materials that it’s made from. So whether it’s for your home, office, or to ‘pimp up’ your café then with a little imagination, the bar stool is all that, and much more besides.
