What is A Stool Chair?

stool chair

We’ll be honest with you, there is no such thing as a stool chair, we kind of made it up! However, the closest piece of furniture to it would be a stool that has taken its style from an iconic chair of the same brand but has adopted many of the key features associated with a stool.

To give you an example of what we mean, we’ve listed 4 examples of a ‘stool chair’ that we stock, here at Café Solutions.

Cross Back Stool

This stylish stool has taken its inspiration from the Bentwood Cross Back Chair. The manufacturers have adopted the same design for the upper half but replaced the chair legs with longer legs that are connected with a footrest. Standing at a lofty 1180 mm high, this stool looks great with dry bar tables or grouped alongside a bar counter.

Ladder back stool

This rugged stool has been inspired by the traditional ladder back chair which has been in existence in various guises since the Middle Ages. Our ladderback stools come in a choice of dark walnut or light oak finish and are complemented with a choice of PU cushions in caramel, chocolate, and charcoal colours. Perfect for a traditional setting, your customers are sure to make a beeline for these solid stools.

Replica Tolix bar stool

A take on the iconic Tolix chairs which most of us are aware of, this replica Tolix bar stool has been given a modern twist by lengthening the legs of the Tolix A chair and adding a lower backrest to give support to the person seated. This particular stool is made from powder-coated steel with a glossy silver finish. Strong and lightweight this super stool looks great paired with a gleaming black top dry bar table for a super-chic look.

Ribbon Stool

Now, this is a stool that’s sure to catch the eye with its unusual backrest. It takes its inspiration from the Phillipe Stark Master Chair which was a kind of tribute to 3 great designers. He cleverly layered outlines of the backs of 3 famous chairs – the ‘Tulip Chair’ by Eero Saarinen, the ‘Eiffel Chair’ by Charles Eames and the ‘7 series’ by Arne Jacobsen to create a single intricate back which is cleverly woven to connect with the seat. Made from white polypropylene this is a gorgeous stool that can be used indoors or outside.
