Bar Stools and Chairs
11 Feb 2021
Bars tend to have a steady flow of customers, hopping from one venue to the next, and so the design and décor can be quite different from that of a pub.
Bars tend to follow the latest trends when it comes to design, bar furniture, accessories, and equipment. There are many types of looks permeating the bar industry, from industrial and retro to contemporary and vintage. Bar chairs and stools reflect the design theme. Often chosen as statement pieces to convey the desired message. From fun and funky to relaxed and moody, designers have a lot more creative input on choosing the perfect materials and fabrics in seating to achieve the desired look.
Bar stools need to be the most robust chair in your establishment. As with all hospitality furniture, contract chairs are needed to ensure resilience and longevity. High stools are used around the bar itself or in clusters around high top tables. These have a constant flow of traffic and are the first impression when approaching the bar. Low stools are used as flexible seating around tables, away from the bar itself, they can easily increase group gatherings when required.
Bar Chairs can be anything from modern to traditional or a blend of both. Simple wooden high back chairs are used for flexibility, easy to reconfigure and robust enough for the most demanding of environments. Tub chairs and soft seating options will be used to marry in design themes using interesting and eye-catching fabrics. Usually grouped around low tables to facilitate social interaction between guests.
In the 21'st century the leather sofa remains a firm favourite amongst bars and pubs which aim to retain a traditional feel within a modern environment. There are many advantages to leather as a material, it being easy to clean and extremely durable. Leather sofas have advanced in classic designs and can be chosen either as an understated piece or a play on a classic design can create a focal point to an otherwise dull space.
