As more home bars move under the stars, the outdoor bar stool has become a fixture of on-trend patio decor. The aesthetic result: more versatile designs, upscale styles, and beautiful combinations of all-weather designer fabrics and extraordinarily durable materials.
Here are just some of the ways in which outdoor bar stools can reinvent the possibilities of your contemporary patio.
Setting the Bar
The patio's burgeoning popularity as an indoor-outdoor transitional space has allowed for a freer, more lifestyle-oriented approach to decorating--one that's perfectly suited to the advantages of outdoor bar stools. While still retaining their casual comfort, today's outdoor stools feature more "indoor-worthy" frame profiles, plus designer fabrics and finishes that complement more formal furnishings such as conversation sets and dining tables.
For a traditionally styled multi-purpose patio, consider the classic handcrafted beauty of O.W. Lee stools. Made in the USA, these finely wrought stools feature designs inspired by timeless styles such as high gothic and Spanish Baroque.
For tropical style that's both comfortable and chic, try the cushion-free comfort of rattan wicker, such as Hospitality Rattan bar stools made from woven rehau fiber.
Broadening the Possibilities
Today's outdoor bar stools are ready for anything, be it drinking, dining, stargazing, or just taking a seat wherever fun can be found. If you need an outdoor stool set that can go from home bar aperitif to patio table dinner to fireside or poolside chat, consider sling back swivel bar stools. They're among our best-selling outdoor seats.
These stool features will expand your patio possibilities:
Durability and Fun for All Seasons
If you need low-maintenance stools that can withstand the elements, you won't find a more durable material than teak or recycled plastic. Panama Jack's teak barstools are made from an Indonesian hardwood that's famed for its weather-resistance and longevity. For a colorful take on Adirondack and nautical chair styles, try bar stools made from POLYWOOD® recycled plastic, one of the most durable and weather-resistant materials available for outdoor seating.
