1. Ten out of 10 trees agree that wood counter stools are much better-looking than other materials. Combine beautiful, durable hardwood with supple leather upholstery, and you have a wood counter stool that makes guests go weak at the knees - which is okay, because then they can sit down.
2. You can't argue with classic. Wooden counter stools infuse distinctive, time-tested character into any decor. Whether you want the simplicity and craftsmanship of Shaker or country dining rooms, or a casually luxurious home bar, a wooden counter stool is the perfect character actor for the role.
3. When shopping for wooden stools, don't forget about the visual effect of a light, medium, or dark wood finish. Cherry counter stools, for example, convey warmth and richness, with gorgeous red-brown coloring and a satiny grain. Oak counter stools are popular with decorators who want a classic arrowback-style wooden stool with a light finish.
