High Backed Bar Stools for Summer

By Adrian Higgins, 7th August, 2011

Summer is here - the perfect time for a spot of remodelling and renovation. So why not kit out your kitchen diner or breakfast bar with one of our trendy high back bar stools, adding a splash of style whilst giving your back that much-needed support.

The Rochelle Brushed Steel Bar Stool is the first of this week's new arrivals, a suave and ergonomic design built on the same frame as the popular Eames wire chair. A unique design that cossets the body, its curved shape and supportive backrest make for a highly comfortable seat. Comfort is increased by dense foam padding covered in soft faux leather upholstery, stitched into a quilted style that adds to the luxury upmarket feel and helps to make the Rochelle stand out in any environment.

Another high quality addition to our ever expanding range is the Serenity Bar Stool, available in black, brown or cream real leather for an unmistakable luxury touch. A heavy square base is designed to keep the centre of gravity low, with a cast iron weight ensuring superb stability. The high backed seat has a striking profile, with a cascade footrest for superb visual balance. (Please note - the Serenity has since been discontinued.)

Next up is the Viola Stool Chair. Its ABS resin seat is moulded from a single piece, with sinuous curving armrests that really catch the eye, adding a fashionable focal point to any kitchen or dining room. The gloss black or gloss white finish will catch the light beautifully, the sleek reflections picking out the shape of the seat, whilst the padded cushion and backrest allow you to sink in and relax. Not only can the Viola be used at dining chair height, but can also be raised to a low stool height of around 61cm, courtesy of the gas lift mechanism housed in the durable, chrome plated frame. (Please note - the Viola has now been discontinued. We would recommend the Seville instead.)

This week also sees the introduction of the Deco Chair, a practical yet stylish item fit for any contemporary kitchen or dining room. Ideal for use with modern dining tables or even at a desk or vanity table, the minimalist Deco comes in a black and cream satin finish resin seat, and stands on a chrome plated steel frame. (Please note: these have now been discontinued.) The four fashionably formed legs hug the flowing shape of the thick acrylic, which is styled for comfort with a curved backrest, dipped seat and rounded front lip. The chrome plating is notoriously hardwearing, as is the resin construction of the seat, resistant to scratches and very easy to wipe clean should anything be spilled on it. And on top of all that, the Deco is also fully stackable, making it all the easier when you need to clean the floor, or even when used as occasional seating, stowed away when not needed.
