Commercial Counter Stools
Designers specify chairs and stools, including dining chairs and bar-height stools, for many types of commercial interior projects, including offices, restaurants and other hospitality projects, as well as education and healthcare settings. Since people typically spend less time in these chairs than in task seating, the designs of chairs and stools can focus less on ergonomics and more on style.
Stools are not just for bars anymore. Many commercial office designs incorporate bar-like informal work areas where employees can “touch down” and work from laptops or hold impromptu meetings. The designs of stools can have backs or simply comprise of a seat. Bases range from four-leg configurations to pedestals. Stools are made from wood, metal, or a combination thereof, and can featured upholstered seats and backs in leather or a range of fabrics.
Chairs used for lounge settings and dining rooms can range from minimal and modern to midcentury-inspired to more traditional in style. These chairs can be made of wood, metal, or padded with upholstery in a variety of colors or patterns. There are many different types of chairs on the market to suit every design sensibility.
