How “American Style” Design Has Transformed the Bar Stool

This is my second blog post on “American Style” in Interior Design. At a time when we want to keep America working, I want to bring awareness of the many incredible, talented people here whose art is anything but home spun.

The featured artisans create long-lasting items of intrinsic value in the highest quality of work. In this post, we are spotlighting the great, American Interior Design piece found in every home, the bar stool.

I have selected a full range of bar stools from uptown chic to down-home country. Each one of these bar stools reflects the diversity of “American Style” and is made in America.  They prove, even for the bar stool, that “American Style” is anything but ordinary.

This Lucite bar stool would look great in a contemporary setting, in either a kitchen or bar area.

This bar stool would work great in a warm climate, because of the webbed back, which allows the breeze to flow through.

This bar stool could be placed in a contemporary or traditional setting, depending upon whether you leave it a natural wood color, or paint it high gloss and remove the three medallions in the back.

This bar stool has such elegant lines and would look incredible in a living room bar area.

I like the scale of this bar stool; it has great presence while being petite in size.

Charles Pollock Reproductions, Inc.

This bar stool has such classic lines that lend it to either traditional or contemporary settings depending upon the finish selected.

Sterling Collection

I like the mix of the wood, leather and rush back on this bar stool. It has a wonderful country look without being cutesy.

This is the navy blue blazer of bar stools; your classic “fit any style” bar stool, depending upon what materials you use and the finish on the wood.

This stool is knee slapping funny. It makes me want to put on my cowboy boots and start line dancing. I would love to design a honky-tonk man cave around this bar stool.

I have great respect for designers who balance art and function and create pieces that are not only essential, but transform a room. In the rooms I design, I look for “American Style” artisans like this, because for great Interior Design, “it’s all in the details.”

Did I prove it to you with these “American Style” artisans and their bar stools?
