Eulalie Dupuy Bar Stools March 05, 2018 19:01:46
Another thing these western saddle bar or counter stools have in common is that just like the horse saddles they never feature a back rest or the arm rests.
Wooden western bar stools would then be upholstered with that cowhide leather using metal round top tacks which would provide a look of a western bar stool strongly resembling a horse saddle. Sometimes a saddle horn would be added to one side of the bar seat to complete such horse saddle bar stool.
34" and larger bar stools are used for counters that exceed 42" in height. Please double check your measurements before ordering a 34" seat height. These are common enough for manufacturers to produce them but most customers will need a bar stool in the 24" to 30" range.
Cowhide is a natural cow leather that has been minimally processed not bleached or colored. It may have been soaked in salt after the cow was skinned and in the tannery it might have been tanned to remove the odors and prevent shedding of hair.
When you would like to establish that wild west cowboy feel in your home but you have modern style kitchen furniture and fixtures then you should consider modern style saddle counter stools. They will still be made of wood.
Stools that will be used frequently or for long periods of time (dining game rooms commercial bars etc.) should typically include arms AND backs to increase comfort and decrease stress on your back and shoulders.
