Buying Guide

Wire is only a decorating term when making reference to wire bar stools. The frame is made from quality steel that meets or exceeds industry standards. When back and seat are woven to give the look of wire, the same standards apply to the metal used.

The decor of today makes use of elements from nature to restore the beauty of design in perfect symmetry.

The main feature of wire bar stools is the unyielding presence of super thin metal wires. However, these wires are anything but delicate due to the industry standards set forth.

  • Steel - Steel and other compatible metals are used in different variations, such as chrome, gold-plating or powder-coated colors, to introduce a high-end modern look. Rated strong enough for residential or commercial use.
  • Faux Leather/Leatherette - Slightly padded seats and backs feature the look of leather to add a rich presence of modern design. Imitation leathers are made from polyurethane and polyester and can be manufactured into different textures.
  • Other Upholstery - Micro fabric and suede as cushioned seats make a stark contrast between ultra modern and warm contemporary for a transitional style of modern and traditional.

The modernist design that was brought to light in the 1950s by Bertoia and Woodard fits perfectly in industrial, chic or modern settings. With only slight variations from manufacturers, the pronounced used of metal makes a grand statement in design.

  • Harry Bertoia Reproduction - Bertoia designs of the 1950s feature springy welded metal on durable metal legs that defy the straight rigid lines of wood. Classic still today, many wire bar stools have taken their cue from his design.
  • Seashell Shaped - Stools that have a bowl-shaped appearance hug their visitor with low sturdy wires and often fitted with an upholstered padded seat. Vintage from mid-century, it was ahead of its time for the sweeping modern flair that is popular today in contemporary and transitional styles.
  • Square and Straight - Contemporary designs cannot fail with straight lines and padded backs and seats.

The proper height of wire bar stools provide comfort and symmetry along kitchen islands or freestanding bars. Measuring the top of your table to the floor will give you an idea of what height to use for your bar stool. Subtract 10" from this number and this is the recommended seat height. This may vary according to personal comfort and overhanging counter spaces. For instance, if your bar height is 40", your bar stool seat should be around 30".

Covered metal is simple to clean. Wipe off any dust or dirt with a damp cloth. Wipe dry stainless steel to avoid streaks. Occasionally, use a Q-Tip for reaching inside the small crevices of the wires. Vacuum any padded seats and use mild detergent mixed with water to remove stains.
