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.
Materials - The next thing you need to think about is the material that your bar tables are going to be made out of. While sure, there are pretty bar tables made out of glass and other more fragile substances. Do you really want a bunch of drunken people at your house banging their glasses down on a glass tabletop surface? Probably not. So, maybe it's in your best interest to look for something a little hardier. When it comes to wood look for hard wood tables instead of soft wood that can be easily marked or scratched. Or perhaps you want to look into the resin or metal markets. Any of these will be good choices as they will be able to stand up to a lot of use and abuse from those guests.
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.
