Metal or Wood? This is a good question. If you ask 10 retailers. you`ll get 10 responses. In my opinion. wood bar stools are prone to problems not encountered with welded metal bar stools. Due to the soft nature of wood (when compared to steel). screws and joints tend to come loose over time- especially wood with arms. The constant outward stress on the arms can loosen the attachment points resulting in a loose feel. Legs and stretchers (horizontal support bars) can also become loose over time resulting in an unstable and potentially dangerous bar stool. Still. there are decorating situations in which only wood will work.
If your horizontal (floor space) is limited. you may choose armless. Arms generally add 3 to 6 inches to the overall width of a single bar stool and can add up to 18" in width on just 3 bar stools. (See "How Many Do I Need?)
As for a dollar amount. the average higher-quality bar stool should be in the $199 to $349 range regardless of where you shop. Stools with special features such as tilt-swivel mechanisms. real leather seating. casters or custom heights may cost as much as $400 to $600 each. Some designer hand carved wood stools with multi-step finishes can cost $1.000 to $3.000 each.
expect to pay more than mass produced furniture. Your bar stool will be made to order in the fabric. finish. height and other options you select. Typical turn around time is anywhere from 3 to 8 weeks and may be even longer during the winter holiday season. Let your retailer know if time is a factor in your decision so they may direct you to manufacturers with quicker lead times.
Price...What Should I Expect To Pay? 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.
