Buying Guide

Rustic style takes the best of raw country living and combines wood, stone, and metal, often in their natural state. Leather rustic bar stools work well along a kitchen island where cast iron pots and pans line a stone wall.

However, a rustic look can evolve within other styles. Pairing up a simple wooden stool with a saddle-style leather seat provides a transitional appearance for other decors. See Styles for new alternative ways in which to incorporate your rustic stools into your personal decor.

  • Wood - Weathered hardwood, hand-carved seasoned wood and rugged oak bring a rustic look to plain bar stools. Backs of the same wood are optional, but simple as well. While a full back provides support for leaning into, a half-back is used mainly for aesthetic purposes.
  • Leather/Leatherette - Genuine leather is preferred to stay with the hard core look, feel and smell of rustic furniture. Full grain or top grain will show the scars of the environment and add character to the stool. While leatherette is void of the natural marks, it can mimic the real thing with hand stitching and metal tacks added.
  • Metal - Distressed metal or black brushed iron that meet commercial furniture guidelines keep stools sturdy and well-balanced. Metal that provides a full back has been sanded and finished for comfort. Foot plates may be added to wood frames to help protect the integrity of the natural material.

Today's stools have addressed the change in multiple decors with a blend of designs to keep the image transitional and alive. Whatever your flavor in decor, there are a variety of stools to choose from.

  • Transitional rustic industrial decor is growing in popularity. Great for family homes, those once throw-away items are being salvaged and used in a homegrown and lived-in fashion. Transitional is the new normal for once Traditional styles with period furniture. Intermingled with scarred wood and iron pieces, a rustic transition takes place. Lastly, natural fabrics like cotton, leather and suede bring a sense of warmth into the picture. Creative leather rustic bar stools that sport weathered legs and worn leather seats fit well in this new style.
  • Eclectic rustic industrial allows individual promise without guidelines. Anything goes with anything old and natural is a big plus. Leather couches with metal cage-like tables and seasoned oriental rugs are typical of this style. Add a pair of bar stools that have classic adjustable screw-like seats along a wood and industrial pipe bar and feel the energy of nature come alive.
  • Western rustic style takes wood to the extreme with whittled pieces of wood as bases for tables, bars, and stools. Mounted with natural leather, the cowboy era emerges. The mixed scents of pine, leather and hemp rope deliver a real western atmosphere.
