About Suspension Seating

The term suspension seat comes from the liner suspended between the wood frame. As the occupant moves up and down, the liner gives, preventing the body from constantly hitting against a hard surface such as those found in stock seats.

"I've had my eye on Darafeev barstools for awhile and found Barstool Comforts online. The Barstool Comforts website is full of information and easy to navigate. I asked for a few fabric samples and they fulfilled my request quickly. I was able to make a decision and placed the order very easily online. I was notified when the barstools shipped and was provided a tracking number. Shipping and delivery were smooth and trouble free. I emailed Barstool Comforts a couple of different times with questions and each time I received a fast and helpful response. I would not hesitate to make a purchase with them again. Great folks!"
