How long does it take to ship?

Our lead times vary from brand to brand. Since we sell only custom made bar stools and chairs, it currently takes 4-8 weeks on average for them to be made since Covid, however we urge you view our shipping table here for specific ship times from our brands.

Once my items ship, how long does it take until I receive them?

For most of our bar stools and chairs, you’ll receive them in a week or less.

Some bigger items such as tables, chairs, and certain bar stools may take 1-2 weeks depending on the trucking company, however we’ll let you know how soon you’ll be receiving your order once it ships. If you have any questions prior to ordering, don’t hesitate to reach out.

Do you take partial payment?

Since these are custom made, we do not accept partial payment. All orders must be paid in full in order for the manufacturer to start production. Thank you for understanding.

Which shipping companies do you use?

We typically use UPS and FedEx for most of our items.

For our Darafeev, Leathercraft, and Fairfield Chair brands, we use a LTL Freight Truck who will call you to schedule a delivery date and time. We will contact you with details once your items ship.

Product FAQs

I need help selecting the colors for my stools. Can you help?

Absolutely! Deborah has been a designer for over 20 years and would be glad to work with you. Being that we have all of our fabrics, metal and wood finishes in-house, she’ll be able to tell you which go well together in your home.

You’re welcome to email or call her at 855-828-5661.

Do you have bar stools made for the outdoors?

Yes, we do. Please see our outdoor bar stools category.

Should I go with arms or no arms on my bar stools?

This is a very common question and is something to consider.

Pros of Arms:
– Provides support to rest your arms.
– Easier for elderly adults and children to get into by holding on to the arms.
– Overall, gives it an extra boost of comfort.

Cons of Arms:
– Makes the bar stool narrower, allowing you to fit more stools around your counter.
– You can more easily slip into the bar stool from the left or right without the obstruction of an arm.

Do you carry bar stools where the backs will fit under my counter?

Yes, we carry plenty of low back bar stools including popular bar stools such as the AceBarryEthan, and Ronny.

Please make sure to measure the height of your counter and double check the measurements on our product pages to ensure they will slide under your counter.

What is the difference between a Standard Seat and a Comfort Seat?

This question is in regards to our Trica brand.

Standard seats are approximately 1½ inches thick with a semi-foam core.

Classic seats are approximately 2 inches thick with a softer foam core.Regular seat vs Comfort Seat

What is a 360-Degree Swivel?

A 360-degree swivel stool remains in the position you leave it when you get up from the stool. We recommend a 360-degree swivel stool because the stool won’t be pushing against you like on a memory-swivel. A memory swivel will want to return to the center even while you’re on it.360-degree swivel

What is a Memory-Return Swivel?

A memory or a return-swivel simply returns bar stools back to the center position after someone gets up from the seat.

Do your bar stools come with protection for my floors?

All of our bar stools and chairs come with glides that are attached to the bottom of the feet.

Typically, tile or vinyl floors require the glides we provide you.

Wood floors require stick-on felts on the bottom of our glides. This can be purchased at any local hardware store.

Due to the vast types of flooring today, we suggest calling your flooring company to see what they recommend.

Do you carry 34″ bar stools?

Yes, many of our brands carry 34-inch stools in all sizes and features.

Can I get anything higher than a 34″ bar stool?

Yes, our Holland brand makes 36-inch high bar stools.

Our Fairfield brand has 4 adjustable height bar stools that go up to 40″ seat height.

Our Darafeev brand can also make 36-inch high bar stools, but there will be an upcharge of $100 per stool.

This is the ideal height for a 48 to 50-inch high counter.

Can I provide my own fabric, vinyl, or leather on your bar stools?

Yes! In fact, all of our manufacturers accept C.O.M. (customers own material), except for Amisco. Please see more information here on our C.O.M. service.

Can I buy an extra yard of fabric? I want to upholster my pillows, curtains, etc.

Yes, most of our manufacturers allow you to purchase extra yards of fabric, vinyl, or leather.
Amisco: Buy Yards of Fabric or Vinyl
Trica: Buy Yards of Fabric or Vinyl
Wesley Allen: Buy Yards of Fabric or Vinyl

For brands not listed above, please contact us to purchase yardage.

Can I order new seat cushions for my existing bar stools and chairs?

Yes, all of our manufacturers allow you to order new seat cushions, bases, and other parts and hardware. Simply, send us an email with what you need and we’ll get you a price.

Assembly FAQs

I’m not leaning back in my bar stool, but I’m leaning forward (or sideways). How do I fix this?

If you’re getting something like this (see below) on your stool, then you may have attached the swivel plate incorrectly.
What happens when the swivel is put on wrong (left) vs correctly (right)
When you’re attaching the swivel plate, make sure the part that says “TOP-FRONT” is facing the front of the stool like so:

That way, your stool will be aligned correctly, and you won’t feel like you’re going to fall forward, but you’ll be sitting back a bit. 
Align the swivel plate correctly on barstool

How do I prepare the 360-degree swivel mechanism to attach it to my bar stool?

1. Push down on the swivel and turn the top piece to the left or right to form an X. 
2. Release.

Here’s a video showing how:

How to Loosen the Swivel Plate

I just received my bar stools, but they don’t easily swivel. Will they loosen up?

When stools are new, the swivel mechanism is always going to be a little tight. They will definitely loosen up over time. 

How do I insert and remove the Amisco glides at the bottom of the feet?
