Since new regulations were made law in 1988 (The Furniture and Furnishings (Fire Safety) regulations 1988) it is very important when purchasing new bar furniture that the correct certification to show that the fabric used has been treated for fire retardancy and that any foam fillings are made of combustion modified foam. The supplier of the bar furniture will be able to supply these. Bar stools are available at bar height to either stand by the bar or to stand alongside tall tables (poseur tables) designed specifically for drinking at rather than for dining. Poseur tables can have single pedestals with one or two table tops at different heights which take up little space and look very attractive when set in a room with other regular height bar furniture.
The single poseur tables are available either in turned wood or decorative cast iron. They can also be found with rectangular tops either on a double pedestal base or a conventional four legged base, this size being more suited to a larger bar, where space saving is not such an issue. The most popular traditional bar stools for these tables are either the backless 'Tudor' bar stools with decorative turned legs or the 'Captains' bar stools based on 19th century colonial furniture.
The bar furniture market in the UK is seeing more and more modern styles being offered each year as many licensees choose to give the interior of their bar a lighter and hopefully more inviting aspect. Chromed tubular steel is very popular now, looking particularly attractive upholstered in leather or patterned dralon or flat weave fabric. Classic sofa designs, for example Le Corbusiers' 'Petit Confort' sofa which offers outstanding comfort combined with a strikingly attractive appearance when upholstered in black or red leather. These offer maximum impact when a number of single, two or three seater pub chairs are combined to utilize the bar space available and ideal combined with glass topped or modern wooden coffee tables.
