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.
When attempting to decide which style of bar furniture to incorporate into a restaurant or pub bar the owner is confronted by a bewildering number of choices, some modern, some traditional, whether made of steel, wood or fabric upholstered or a combination of all three.
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.
