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.
What do I mean? If you are interested in tables because you run a commercial bar, the best tables for your needs will differ from someone who is interested in bar table sets for home use. Two key attributes are essential to a commercially oriented bar: profit making and durability of the bar furniture. A home bar will not really be interested in profit and as such, not really be concerned about cost cutting tactics. Another related point is the number of bar furniture being purchased. This will definitely be more for a commercial pub. So, take the above points into consideration together with the following points: available space, required size of tables, budget, desired style and make of the tables. Taking these steps will help you come up with the best tables for your needs.
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.
