The style of your bar stool will be dictated in large part by the personal taste and the décor of the room in which the stool will be used. For example, a plastic stool will look terribly out of place when placed next to a beautiful cherry bar. Likewise, an ultra modern stool would look out of place in an Old English style pub. You want your stool to match and blend in or accent the rest of your room’s décor. Height is another thing to consider when choosing a bar stool. Stools come in various heights and oftentimes people purchase a stool or even a large number of stools only to realize that the stools are either too tall or too short for the bar or bar table for which they are intended. Unless you are planning on purchasing an adjustable stool, you should measure the height of your bar or bar table. Your stool should sit under it leaving 10 to 13 inches for leg room and easy movement.
If you decide to cover your bar stool with leather, keep in mind that leather is a natural product made from the skin of cattle. As such, there will be variations in color and texture just as there are variations in texture and color of your own skin. Generally, the more expensive the leather, the more of these imperfections you will see. The ”Cheaper” leathers used in furniture are often ”corrected” leather. Corrected leathers are treated, sanded and dyed to remove these imperfections. Many are even stamped with a simulated grain pattern. Corrected leathers will most often match very closely from one piece to the next and may actually look more artificial than many vinyls! Consider it a unique trait if you happen to get a barbed wire scratch mark or even a ”brand” mark. Many people pay extra for these imperfections that prove the authenticity of their leather.
