Retro Bar Stools can often be somewhere in the middle between the elegant or contemporary or sharp and the wooden or softer feeling stools. They are often made of steel with chrome finish, and often accentuate the spirit of an era gone by, such as the 50’s. They will resemble the stools found in the old-time diners, where a person would sit at the oval bar, and be served by a waiter or waitress operating in the center of the oval. Often retro bar counter stool seats will be stitched the emblems of the sports teams and sold in support of various basketball, football, or baseball teams. Such retro stools make a great addition to any game room and are great for kitchens and dinettes as well for people always on the run. Besides black leather and black faux leather, retro stools come in other colors, typically red. They would rarely come as swivel stools.
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.
