Add a splash of color to any counter or pub table setting with red bar stools. The seats come in a variety of styles to compliment the counter eating area or the table. They can be found in many different price ranges and material types.
Metal Red Bar Stools
Metal frame stools have been around since the days of soda fountains. The seats are usually covered in a colorful vinyl that can easily be cleaned off between customers, yet provides enough cushioning to be comfortable for a drink or snack. Seats of this style are still available in a chrome finish with a chrome foot rest and vinyl padded seats.
A newer version is the plastic or acrylic molded seat with the chrome base. The shape of the seat is often futuristic and resembles an ice cream scoop. The Lumisource Scooper is one of the most popular modern/retro bar stools out there.
A two piece model with separate seat and back that still offers a futuristic look is the Brookstone Fly Bar Chair. The chair is made with a curved oval shaped back and a seat that is slightly curved toward the back, for low back support. The seat and back material is leatherette.
Wood Red Bar Stools
The OSP Designs Metro Parsons red leather bar stools come with legs in a dark wood finish, with a bonded red leather seat and high back. The style is rather simplistic and there are no arm rests. The leather seat and back give the chair a classic look that will work with wood pub tables and with classically designed counter eating spaces. Similar products include the Taylor model with button pleated backs and the Parsons roll back model with backs that curve slightly outward.
Other wood frame versions include the Oscar and the Draper swivel models. The Oscar features a rectangular area cut out of the back, for a contemporary look. The draper is a more classic design with a wide back that curves inward to taper at the top.
Rattan Bar Stools
The Hillsdale Cierra is a rattan model with classic details and contemporary styling. It features a microsuede seat and back. The seat is round while the back is shaped like an upside down triangle, for a unique look.
Adding red bar stools can be an affordable way to change the look of a kitchen eating area or dining space. With the different styles available they can be selected to coordinate with other furniture or with the look of a counter eating space. Color variations range from a bright fire engine shade to a darker amber tone. Many retails stores that sell furniture offer several models. They are also available from furniture wholesale companies and from online sellers. Red bar stools come in nearly any style a homeowner prefers to fit any budget.
