Not too long ago, the thought of bar stools brought to mind images of wooden, “nailhead” chairs that you could find at any old bar around town. Yet in recent years, these seating options have really taken a big step towards luxury, and many people are now placing these in their high end homes and even in certain business environments, too.
Leather bar stools are among the top considerations when looking at sophisticated seating options, but you will find that there are several great styles to choose from. In addition, whether you go for a pricey cream-colored Italian leather bar stools or inexpensive black faux leather bar stools, there are choices for every budget.

Backless Leather Bar Stools
There are some truly classy leather bar stools that carry a traditional nailhead or otherwise backless bar stool style. This is a style that is ideal for tucking underneath a counter when not in use, and it can help to make its occupant feel less confined.
Consider the 30 inch” Nailhead Black Leather Swivel Bar Stool by AtHomeMart, which boasts a comfortable seating option and colors that fit many decors. Another option to consider is the 24 inch” Espresso Finish Counter Bar Stool by Poundex which boasts a unique rectangular seating area.
Mid-Rise Back Leather Bar Stools
You can also find some unique styles that boast a half-back or mid-rise back option. These are styles that generally provide the individual with the comfort benefits that come with a chair that has a back, but with the freedom and flexibility to move freely that comes with a backless chair.
The Winsome Wood Air Lift Adjustable Stools by Winsome Wood feature this type of seating complete with a silver base, and can add a distinctly retro yet modern look to your space. The Black Swivel Leather Bar Stool Pub by Sky Enterprise USA also carries this same modern look, but whereas the Winsome model has a rectangular base, the Sky Enterprise model features a curved seating space.
Full Back Leather Bar Stools
There are perhaps more full back seating options available than other other type. These are truly comfortable chairs that allow the occupant to relax in comfort and lean back in style. One option to consider include the 29 inch” Acme bar stools with dark brown finish, which features a contemporary, upscale look that will look great in many homes today.
Another beautiful option is the Coaster Bar Stool Chair with Swivel Black Leather Seat and Back with Cherry Finish by Coaster Home Furnishings. This model features lovely, curved wooden armrests and a swivel seat for maximum comfort and function.
These are just a few of the many different styles of leather bar stools today that are ideal for homes as well as some business uses, too. You will first want to consider if you want a backless, mid-rise, or full-back bar stool in your home or business, as well as the color of leather and wood or metal that is best suited for your decor.
Then take a look at these beautiful options as well as some of the other styles available to find the right style for your space. You can find a great selection of leather bar stools at specialty brick and mortar stores as well as reputable online merchants such as the ones on this page.
