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.
The final aspect to consider is what type of material will be used in the construction of the stool and whether you want the stool to be upholstered. The old fashioned stools were generally made from hard wood and heavily varnished. These are handsome and sturdy stools but perhaps a bit heavy looking for residential use. Upholstered stools are very attractive and comfortable. You can easily have the stool upholstered in the fabric of your choice. These days stools are made from a number of different materials including wood, resin, steel, poly carbonate and formed plastic. There are a number of beautiful products on the market made from brushed chrome with leather seats.
