Fixed Height Knock Out

9th February 2017

Fixed Height bar stools are rapidly becoming one of the most popular trends of 2017. With the stools becoming a staple of the high end breakfast bar (and any bar for that matter) we thought we would compare two of our bestselling stools to show just how versatile they can be.

Weighing in at the 1st corner we have the Athena Bar stool.

At a total height of 82cm the Athena bar stool is the perfect height to reach any standard breakfast bar. The small circular seat allows these stools to fit in any space needed, whilst still providing the same comfort as one of our larger stools. The seat is padded with high density foam, allowing for maximum comfort whether you are seated for a quick chocolate bar hiding from the kids, or if you’re trying to finish that last minute presentation your boss gave you three weeks ago. You’re guaranteed to be seated in luxury.. Standing on a structure of 4 oak colored legs, the stool is given an authentic feel, whilst the contrasting seat provides the needed modern twist.

Our admirable competitor closely weighting in in the second corner is our Helsinki bar stool

Standing at 96cm tall and an overall width of 40cm the Helsinki is a stool that cannot be missed. Its striking fabric seat is guaranteed to make a stir in any of the 4 colours available. A large padded seat sits regal on top of the wooden structure creating an impact like no other. Similarly to the Athena, The Helsinki is padded with high density foam providing that much needed comfort. However, the large 35cm depth of the stool creates a gentle resting place for any legs, whilst strengthening bars within the base double as that welcomed footrest.

Even after a knockout round we are unable to decide a winner. Would it be our reigning champion the Athena or our newcomer to the ring the Helsinki? Head over to our Instagram page for a winner-takes-all rematch.
