The most favoured traditional bar stool design is certainly the 'Tudor' stool, a replication of the simple joined wooden stool and church pews dating back to the Medieval period. In the last three decades these pub chairs and bar stools have been most popular finished in dark oak colour although recently lighter shades in walnut finish or light oak have been more often chosen to brighten up the bar area. These bar chairs and bar stools are often required upholstered and the supplier can offer a huge choice of fabric to suit the proprietors' interior design.
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.
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.
