Wooden Bar Stools With Backs – My Top 5 Choices

bar stools with backs

Buying bar stools can seem like a difficult process. Especially when buying online, you have to do your due diligence and make sure that you are getting a stool that will be the right height for your bar.

Amazon has an amazing selection of bar stools. This is great because you can easily see stools that will support any sort of style you are looking for.

You should still be wary about what stool you pick.

A lot of Amazon furniture is manufactured in China and could have defects. Make sure to diligently read reviews before clicking that shiny proceed to checkout button.

In this article, I’ll be going over 5 of my favorite wooden bar stools with backs.

I have made sure to pick stools that cover a wide range of different styles that you might be going for.

Let me know which of these stools is your favorite in the comment section below!

The first stool we’ll be talking about is the Boraam Augusta Swivel Stool.

It is a beautiful bar stool that is made out of solid wood and faux leather. The build quality of this bar is wonderful. It offers plenty of strength and stability.

The swivel action of this stool is nice and smooth. It will swing 360 degrees using its ball-bearing swivel plate.

This is actually a stool set and includes 2 stools. Each stool has a 14.5 inch back-support and has a seat diameter of 15 inches.

Keep in mind that these stools are relatively small. A lot of buyers didn’t understand that before they made the purchase. Make sure to take note of Amazon’s measurements of this stool before you buy it.

Assembly is quick and easy. As you can imagine, stools aren’t the hardest type of furniture to put together. A lot of stools fail to include decent directions, but the Boaraam Augusta’s direction were okay.

For the most part, reviews of this chair were positive. There were a few reviewers that experienced factory defects.

I’d have to imagine that the defects weren’t consistent and are only apparent for a small fraction of buyers. Amazon does have a fairly painless return process if you run into any issues.

All-in-all, these bar stools offer you an excellent build quality for an affordable price.


Coaster Solid Wood Cappuccino Bar Stool

If you are looking for a good quality stool with good back-support, the Coaster Solid Wood Cappuccino bar stool might be your answer!

I liked this stool. I wouldn’t classify it as high quality by any means, but it gets the job done and has a nice design.

This stool’s quality will remind you a lot of a piece of furniture that you’d find at Ikea. This bar stool does, however, look really nice.

The stool’s back-support is 30 inches in height. The leather on the seat can be re-covered if you are willing to change it.

Assembly of this chair isn’t that bad. Its directions aren’t the easiest to follow due to its small pictures.

Overall, this chair looks great and won’t cost you much money.

Another feature you might enjoy is that this stool has a tall back support. For long sitting-durations, you’ll remain comfortable.
