We’re proud to be one of the leading suppliers of bar stools in Australia. Having been in the business for many years, we’ve created a great rapport with many manufacturers and are able to offer some of the best prices.
While we may sell cheap bar stools in Australia, we certainly don’t compromise on quality. Our bar stools are commercial grade and designed to withstand all the rigours of a thriving establishment. Many of them have passed rigorous tests from the AFRDI which means they’re fit for purpose, and wherever possible, our timber stools use reliably sourced sustainable timber.
Modern and traditional bar stools
Variety is the spice of life, or so they say, which is why we’re pleased to offer our customers a wide choice of bar stools. Whether you’re looking for a small stool or a tall stool, a modern or a traditional stool, an indoor or an outdoor stool, we’ve got you covered.
Some of our best-selling bar stools in Australia include our Ladder Back stools and our Cross Back Bentwood stools which are both oozing with rustic charm. Other popular bar stools include our replica Tolix stools which come in a wide range of colours and styles. They’re perfect for adding a pop of colour into a neutral setting.
For those who prefer to be seated on a modern bar stool, you may like to take a look at our Loft stool. This features metal legs and a trendy looking low back black polypropylene shell. Another contemporary stool is the Rhiannon stool which has a slender metal frame and a basket weave shell seat.
So how do you choose bar stools in Australia?
With so many styles of bar stools to choose from, selecting the one that best suits your needs can be quite challenging. It always helps to narrow down your search by asking yourself several questions such as:
“Do I need an indoor or outdoor bar stool?”
Firstly, is your stool for indoor use, outdoor use, or both? It’s important to make this decision right from the start as using an indoor stool outside will shorten its longevity.
“Where are my bar stools to be used?”
Another consideration is where are your stools going to be used? Do you want them to sit beneath counters, around communal tables, or with tall bar tables? Our bar stools are supplied in 3 sizes: 46cm, 66cm, and 76cm.
Our 46cm stools (also referred to as low stools) will fit comfortably around a standard height café table and may be preferred over chairs if space is tight.
66cm bar stools – These are typically for use with standard kitchen counter heights and kitchen islands.
76cm bar stools – These tall stools are suited to bar height counters and can also be matched with our dry bar tables. They allow for elevated dining and are always popular with customers.
“Should my barstool have a backrest or not?”
This is partly a matter of personal taste and partly one of comfort. A stool with a back offers more support to the user. This can work to your advantage as if a customer is seated comfortably they could stay longer and order more drinks/food. If, on the other hand, you prefer a quick turn around of customers, then a backless stool might be a better choice.
“Should my bar stool be contemporary or traditional?”
Typically, it’s always best to select bar stools in Australia which match your décor and/or existing furniture. If your café has a trendy modern look, for example, then a traditional Ladder Back stool is going to look totally out of place.
“What material should my stool be made from?”
Again, this depends on what the answers to the above questions have been. Wooden bar stools are relatively heavy to move around but do lend a cosy, welcoming ambience. They’re not a great choice for outdoor use, however.
Metal stools are strong and lightweight which means you can move them around with ease. They can often be used outside under cover too and because there are so many colours to choose from, they provide a great way of adding a splash of colour.
Polypropylene stools are ideal for outdoor use but depending on their style, aren’t always aesthetically suitable for indoor use.
If you’re seeking a great-looking stool which can be used indoor and outside then why not take a look at our Parisian stools. These are extremely attractive and are made with steel legs and a nylon woven seat.
