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.
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.
Several advantages are attached to having a bar in your home. For starters, it is a very convenient arrangement. Why go out for drinks when you can sit at your own bar and enjoy them in the comfort of your home. Want to meet with friends? Invite them over to your place and let them have a 'sip' and feel of your hospitality. This will definitely increase your popularity meter. Another reason is the security guaranteed you in your home. It's highly unlikely that you'll be involved in a brawl in your own home. You definitely don't want to destroy your bar table! The most obvious reason is that it's less expensive eventually.
