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.
For those with a need to see what’s happening around them, there are swivel bar stools. When seated at a bar, it is easy to become curious about what’s going on behind you. The simple answer to keep guests more comfortable is to allow for swiveling. Sitting on one of these it’s nothing to spin to face the bar to make your order, and then turn the stool 180° to keep an eye on what’s going on behind you. For those with the backyard patio bar, this means while sipping your chilled juice (or whatever libation you favor) you can keep an eye on the kids.
