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.
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.
The first thing that you will want to do is visit nearby furniture stores to browse around and look at all of the different options of bar tables and chairs that they have. Make sure you pay close attention to the height of the set you are going to choose, and also check the weight of the chairs as well. No one wants to have to move a chair that's too heavy from under a table to sit down. There is one factor that you should consider about the heavy chairs, and that is, if they are heavy, then the quality of the chair is normally pretty good. You should consider how tall or how short the people that will be that will be sitting on the chairs at the bar tables. If you will be mostly using bar tables for family and you have a lot of kids, then you may not want to choose a really tall set. Then again, if you plan on having the table for a while and you have little ones that will be growing, then you could probably go ahead and consider a tall table with chairs.
