Red bar stools give a cool retro look

Red bar stools are the classic interior design statement of a 1950s-style diner, and they’ve remained fashionable thanks to nostalgia and people wanting some old-school retro charm in their homes and restaurants. We stock many of our bar stools in red, so here we’re highlighting the best designs…

1. The Bodoni red bar stool

This stunning angular bar stool is very hi-tech looking, and would be right at home in a stylish and contemporary kitchen or a bar. The red faux leather gives it a slight retro feel, as does the round pedestal base.

The upholstered faux or buffed leather seat is supported by a strong and elegant chrome or satin aluminium frame.

Sitting by the breakfast bar has never been made more comfortable with the design of the deep seat and supportive backrest and the rectangular foot support is ideally placed so you’re never left with your feet dangling!

Also available in this range is the Bodoni Bar Stool and the Bodoni Dining Chair.

2. The Pod gas lift bar stool

The gas lift pod bar stool is sleek, ultra modern and very comfortable,
with a chrome base, steel frame and tough yet comfortable plastic seat.

This stool with its moulded curves and shiny construction would not look out of place in a modern art gallery, but we can also imagine it in a retro-inspired cafe or diner. It’s great for this kind of setting because the plastic seat is totally wipe-cleanable so will stay looking fresh for years.

The gas lift feature means you can be sitting high and mighty at your bar and then sitting comfortably at the right height for a dining table!

3. Florenta bar stool

The Florenta is a simple but attractive piece of furniture designed by Fabio Di Bartolomei and suitable for commercial use.

Complete with a retro-style curved seat, arm and back rest this bar or kitchen stool comes in a variety of eye catching colours, including red.

It’s all perched upon a chrome frame which includes a foot rest for maximum comfort and a circular base in chrome or aluminium satin for stability.

The seat is made from high quality polyurethane and as gas lift adjusts to varied heights, making it a very versatile seating choice.

This is a ‘special order’ product with a delivery time of 4-6 weeks.

4. Elario bar stool (available in retro red)

If you are looking for that retro but stylish look then the Elario is the bar stool you need. The Elario stool consists of a chromed steel tube frame and an upholstered seat with an attractive chromed band.

Available with several options including faux or real leather, the round shape and vibrant colours combined with the chromed steel the design of the Elario is reminiscent of the 60s we reckon.
