Size - Size is the first thing you are going to want to consider. Do you just want one bar table or would you prefer a number of bar tables to be able to seat guests in your home? Your answer to this question will make a difference when it comes to the tables you will want to purchase. If you just need one you have a lot more flexibility in size than if you need three or four that you have to make work into the space of the room you have. Don't forget, in addition to those bar tables are going to be bar stools or chairs where your guests will be sitting that will take up even more space.
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.
Traditional bar furniture is still dominated by the old 'Colonial' designs of chair, for example the 'Mates' and 'Captains' chairs with the Windsor and Wheelback chairs still being very popular. The Windsor chair has a history dating back to the 18th Century. Not surprisingly the first Windsor chairs were reputed to have been made in Windsor and developed from simply adding a few back spindles and a top rail to a regular joined wooden stool and gradually developed to the Windsor chair with sweeping curved back and decorative central supporting splat that is recognised as the classic design.
