Nanette Lelievre Bar Stools February 02, 2018 20:44:07
Some modern style saddle counter stools have their seat shaped in a downward curve resembling the curvature of the saddle. Despite the rectangular shape of the "floor plan" of the seat you will be able to sit on the chair looking forward as if riding and straddling the chair with your legs or you will be able to sit sideways with your legs together and your behind safely seated in the curve of the saddle seat.
Why are these heights chosen? Firstly an average height American will be able to consume a quick snack either standing by or sitting up on the kitchen stool with such chosen height of a stool and a bar top. Secondly it will be possible to prepare breakfast food or drinks on a bar top even though the 40 inch surface height is a bit high for that purpose. Usually the food can be prepared from the one side of the bar top while consumed from the other.
