The rattan and bamboo are only two types of wood used in designing modern bar stools, and are making a come-back with a slight retro feel.
It is a common belief that when you buy bar stools, you have a bar area inside your house. But this is not always the case. One way of accessorizing one's own home is through stools. It won't only show your fashion fab choice but it is also a way to save space. Not only can stools be a way to express your creative sense of interior decorating but a means to sell your house quickly--if you want to do so.
You can buy a bar stool for as little as $9. Typically bar stools less than $100 are "RTA" or "Ready to Assemble". This means that the bar stool must be bolted together by the customer. Using as many as FIFTY (yes, I once sold a stool that required 50 bolts) bolts, legs must be attached, seats must be attached, arms, back, seat frame, etc. Every bolt used to assemble a bar stool is a potential problem. Everyday use will loosen bolts over time resulting in a potentially dangerous situation if you do not periodically check the tightness of all the bolts. Even worse, many RTA stools use thin-walled metal with no additional support for the bolt's threads to grasp. I have seen hundreds of these lower quality stools that will easily strip threads simply by being assembled. Additionally, lower priced stools are typically sold one way: one color, one fabric, no options.
34" and larger bar stools are used for counters that exceed 42" in height. Please double check your measurements before ordering a 34" seat height. These are common enough for manufacturers to produce them, but most customers will need a bar stool in the 24" to 30" range.
