A bar stool is a type of chair, often with a foot rest, which is designed for seating in a public house or bar. However, they are very popular in homes, usually placed at the kitchen counter or at a home bar. Bistro tables paired with bar stools are becoming much more common today.
Bar stools are becoming more popular because their varied styles are more appealing than the common wooden bar stool, and they actually accentuate the theme of a home. They allow for a higher view when eating, drinking, or socializing. Bar stools are also great for additional seating for guests!
