This is a good question. If you ask 10 retailers, you’ll get 10 responses. In my opinion, wood bar stools are prone to problems not encountered with welded metal bar stools. Due to the soft nature of wood (when compared to steel), screws and joints tend to come loose over time- especially wood with arms. The constant outward stress on the arms can loosen the attachment points resulting in a loose feel. Legs and stretchers (horizontal support bars) can also become loose over time resulting in an unstable and potentially dangerous bar stool. Still, there are decorating situations in which only wood will work.
Saddle stools are among the most diverse stools out there, and break away from the traditional office stool mold with its distinct seat shape. A saddle stool features a different way of sitting with its seat shaped in the form of a saddle similar to one that you would see on a horse’s back. This seating option works best for dentist or medical offices where the ability to sit in one sturdy position is helpful. For example, when a dentist is cleaning a patient’s teeth and wants to stay in one place without having to slide around to get comfortable, a saddle stool would definitely be of use. With seat height adjustment and seat angle adjustment, saddle stools are also an ergonomic option as they have quite a few adjustments and aid the user in sitting with proper posture.
The reason for people preferring oak bar stools is that oak retains its original attractive appearance throughout its life. But, this is possible only if you maintain the stools properly. You can use normal techniques to maintain these stools. The best thing about these stools is their durability and strength. They are much more versatile than other types of stools. As metal stools have a hard time fitting into different types of decor, these contemporary bar stools are your best bet. They are so simple to change once your decor changes. Once you purchase wooden stools, you won’t have to change them as they can adjust to any type of decor and will last for years.
Fabrics: Both wood and metal bar stools may have countless fabrics to choose from. Look for high quality fabrics that complement your home’s decor, as well as a fabric that works well with the finish you have selected AND the style of the bar stool. An ”Antique Tapestry” is a beautiful fabric, but NOT on a silver modernized frame! Synthetic suede fabrics are very durable and easy to clean. They simulate the look and feel of suede, but are far more easy to care for than cotton or other natural coverings. Some manufacturers offer the ability to use your own fabric. These are commonly referred to as ”COM” or ”Customer’s Own Material.” If you choose to use your own fabric, make sure it is an upholstery grade fabric and check with your salesperson to see how much material will be needed for each stool. Stools with backs generally require 2 yards per stool, whereas backless or metal back stools generally require 1 yard per stool. If your fabric has a repeating pattern that you want to match, it may be necessary to provide more fabric so the factory can match the placement of a design from one stool to the other.
