Barstools are a ubiquitous part of many luxury backyard living areas. But have you ever really thought about the types of outdoor barstools available, and which may be the right choice for your home? There are so many different styles, heights, sizes, and materials that finding the perfect option can be quite a chore. In this article, we aim to showcase the various bar stools for sale San Diego homeowners most often choose for their patio, porch, or pool deck.
Sling Bar Stool
By far the most popular model we sell is a sling barstool. These stools use a fabric sling for the seat and back of the piece, which is most often supported by an aluminum frame. That makes these seating pieces both lightweight and durable at the same time. The fabric sling is comfortable, as well, especially when topped by a generous layer of foam padding. Air flows through the fabric of a sling counter stool, which also makes this the coolest choice. The Echelon Sling Stationary Balcony Stools pictured above provide plenty of support via the curved backs, foot rails, and arm rests, making them an excellent choice for a sling bar stool. A bonus is that they are stackable.
If you prefer seating with motion, then these types of outdoor barstools are a great choice. Not only can you sit back and relax on a cushioned stool, it is easy to turn and change your view. The Verona Cushion Swivel Bar Stools shown here tick off all the boxes for a comfortable seat: deep cushions, beautiful, European-inspired design, armrests, and foot rails. You can also find swivel barstools that feature rocking motion for a peaceful, soothing experience.
Strap Bar Stools
Another of the types of outdoor barstools are those made with straps. Many of us grew up with these classic seating pieces in our backyards. Today, however, outdoor furniture manufacturers use sophisticated materials to create counter stools and bar stools that are far more durable and fashionable. This is evident in the EZ SPAN seating collection from Tropitone by designer John Caldwell. These pieces use vinyl strap segments for the seat and back in a ribbon design that makes them look very contemporary and vibrant. Elance, South Beach, Millenia and Laguna Beach are some of the Tropitone collections featuring this technology.
Armless and Backless Barstools
Finally, there are also armless and backless types of outdoor barstools that may be the best choice for your backyard oasis, particularly if space is at a premium. Although they don’t offer the same support as other stools, their superpower is that they tuck neatly beneath the top of a counter height table and can often be stacked for storage. Available in many different heights, armless and backless barstools are easy to fit nearly anywhere, but particularly handy for small patio bistro sets, as shown in the illustration above.
When considering the types of outdoor barstools, be sure that you select the perfect model for your outdoor living space. With so many styles and features to choose from, there is sure to be a set that will blend in seamlessly with your current patio furniture.
