Tempo Bar Stools Are No Longer Available: Check Out These Alternatives

In August 2015, Tempo Industries, Inc. closed its business, leaving its customers unable to purchase Tempo stools, parts, or factory repairs. Unfortunately, at this time, there is no indication that Tempo Furniture will reopen under the same name or a different brand.

Possible Reasons for Tempo’s Closure

While the reason for Tempo’s closure is not entirely clear, many have speculated that it may have been due to the dock strike in California. The strike may have prevented Tempo from receiving their parts on time and created a backlog at the Tempo factory in Canada. As a result, this backlog could have led to an operational hurdle that ultimately led to the closure of the business.

Alternatives to Tempo Bar Stools

If you are a Tempo customer looking for an alternative to the brand, there are other options available.

All of these stools are custom-made from durable steel and are built to last for many years.

While these options may not be the same as Tempo, they are similar and may be a suitable replacement:
