Metal bar stools have gained recognition over the past few years, steadily evolving into highly desirable items that work superbly in any location. Traditionally, stools were fashioned from wood and were limited to four legged designs, but the momentum has shifted to modern materials and techniques, with steel frames coming out as the ideal choice for many.

New technologies and methods of fabrication alongside modern materials have resulted in the gas lift mechanism, which now plays a vital role in many items of furniture. So popular is the gas lift in fact, that the majority of stools sold come with one integrated into the frame. In most cases, it is affixed to the base and shrouded by the hand crafted footrest, blending seamlessly in with the overall design.

It has a valve operated chamber that is activated by a lever below the seat; when there is an occupant sitting on the stool and it is loaded the seat lowers and when there is no loading it rises to its maximum height. This adds superb functionality and allows you to tailor the stool for individuals, ideal for those with young children and for the elderly, and as a bonus, gas lift stools can also rotate through 360 degrees.

This makes access to any bar table or bar counter all the easier as the seat can be swivelled to one side for easy admission, much more practical than pulling out the stool each time a person wishes to use the bar. A further advantage is that your floor surfaces are less prone to marking if the stool stays immobile, helping to keep scuffs and scratches at bay.

This is where metal stools are again successful; those with a gas lift usually have a circular domed or a flat square base that comes with an integrated floor guard beneath, made from rubberised plastic or felt that is ideal for all surfaces from wood to tile. Other lines, such as cantilever style, boxed frame, and Z-frame stools have beautifully welded frames that are rigid and stable, with fixed height seats that offer a superb alternative to gas lift metal stools. These contemporary stools are hard wearing and easy to maintain, whilst also having floor protectors beneath for additional shielding.

There are two prominent frame finishes to choose from when it comes to metal stools; chrome and brushed. Chromed stools are electroplated in a scratch resistant and durable surface that is polished and reflective, blending in with any period of decor as it mirrors its surroundings and giving a touch of retro charm. Brushed steel stools are hand worked into a muted surface with subtle striations, the contours of the stool highlighted with horizontal grooves. Brushed stainless steel works in sublime unison with new age kitchen appliances and fittings for a modern look.
In addition to these two, however, is the more unusual gunmetal. These stools have a dark black chrome finish for an individual appearance that always turns heads, ideal for any discerning household.
