Limari Home Jorma Collection Modern Style Leatherette

The Jorma Collection has been our favorite thus far. It is a beautiful set, with a leather-like exterior and wood frame and footrest reminiscent of days gone by. The saddle seat style is comfortable without being too low – a perfect fit for anyone but especially those who often struggle to get up once seated because of back issues.

Assembly was easy to do with just a few screws – just be sure to have the included wrench to hand when you need it! The minimalistic design fits well in any room and does not look out of place even when placed next to furniture you find in other parts of your home or office. We highly recommend this chair set to anyone looking for comfortable, stylish living room furniture (or even bedroom furniture if you like!)

This is an excellent chair! It is very comfortable, and we love that it has a footrest. The material looked expensive, and the color was just what we expected. We are happy with these barstools. The saddle seat style is comfortable, and it can easily be used for hours without feeling uncomfortable.

We were also happy that the seat had a low back which meant that the new stove would not cause any interference when we were leaning over it to cook dinner. The barstools arrived quickly and were well packaged.


– Beautiful design, looks great in any room

– Affordable price


– The material does not seem to be the most durable – time will tell.

Armen Living Brandy 26″ Counter Height Wood Swivel

Armen Living Brandy 26" Counter Height Swivel Tan Fabric and Espresso Wood Bar Stool
  • PRODUCT DIMENSIONS- W: 22.5 x D: 23 x H: 39.5 x Seat H: 26.5
  • SWIVEL FUNCTION - It can be tough crafting the perfect seating option for our customers, we are always thinking of the most unique ideas for the best user experience. Providing these features is one way we can do this and help exceed your expectations. The wonderful full 360-degree swivel function allows for maximum mobility. The smooth glide swivel function allows you to change directions with ease, making this your new favorite seat in your home!

We like that it’s affordable, but this stool is so low to the ground. We appreciate that we can swivel all the way around, but it’s too low for us to sit on comfortably. It also doesn’t feel like it will withstand much weight (not that we’re planning on sitting on it or anything). If you’re a shorter person looking for a no-frills stool, this might be a good choice. Otherwise, look elsewhere.

We are pleased with the Armen Living Brandy 26″ Counter Height Wood Swivel. This chair has an espresso wood finish with grey fabric and is perfect for the kitchen. We chose this stool because it had a low back design which provides exceptional lumbar support. We feel like if one of us sat down on it for too long, our legs would go numb.

To be honest, we just use it as extra seating when friends are over. The description didn’t lie – your butt does hit the seat after a while. It’s sturdy enough, but it feels like if you put too much weight on the top back, the whole thing will break.


– Low back design provides exceptional lumbar support

– 360-degree swivel function allows for enhanced mobility while seated

– Product dimensions: 22.5 x 23 x 39.5″

– Included footrest provides additional user support


– Low to the ground when sitting on it for too long can cause lower leg and butt numbness

Some of the best features are the simple wood legs that will fit any kitchen or bar style. We like how it can swivel around 360 degrees, and since it’s not too tall, it will work well for us to fix drinks at our countertop. It’s also lightweight and easy to pick up and move around if need be.

We are big fans of the Hillsdale Napa Valley Swivel. It looks just as we hoped it would. The seat is comfortable even though it’s not real leather, but it doesn’t bother us all that much, thanks to the padded, textured fabric. The plush fabric is very comfortable and robust, and the design offers a nice contrast between the dark brown cherry finish on the legs and the khaki upholstery that’s on top.

Even though the stool is wider than some, it’s still easy to walk around on either side of the swivel. This is a very comfortable stool for sitting at the counter or bar height. This stool is a little pricey, but it’s worth every penny!

Factors To Consider When Choosing Low Back Bar Stools

low back bar stools

Picking a suitable stool is essential for your back health. When you’re shopping, it’s essential to know what type of bar stools you’re looking at and what features are available on each model. This guide will help you understand how to pick the perfect one for your needs.

Types Of Bar Stools

There are three types available: swivel, fixed, and counter. Swivel bar stools make it easier for people to quickly turn around in a room, making them great for entertaining purposes. In general, they swing from 300 degrees to 360 degrees. While this allows you to move in and out of a room, it can cause problems when trying to focus on a project.

Swivel stools often come with adjustable height options, making them more versatile than the other types. Fixed bar stools offer convenience since they don’t move at all; they’re designed for one purpose only: sitting or standing while working. In general, they’re taller than swivel stools and offer little to no back support.

Counter stools are designed for tall tables with bar height features. They can be used in a dining room or kitchen when serving food at the table.


One crucial aspect to look at is the materials that the stools are made with. Metal bar stools are often less expensive, but they can be uncomfortable and harder to clean. Materials like fabric, leather, and wood provide a softer surface for people to sit on, making these types of chairs a popular choice. Leather is an excellent choice if you have pets in the house since it’s easy to clean.

In general, fabric and leather are easier to clean than wood, which can cause problems if people spill drinks or food on them. Wood bar stools also add a more luxurious look when placed at a counter height table in a dining room. If you like the earthy look, you may want to consider purchasing a stool with an unfinished wood surface.

Height And Style  

Other important factors to look at include height and style. To make sure you pick the perfect one for your needs, take a tape measure around your room and find out how tall the table or counter is. You should also keep in mind what you’d like the stools to be used for.

For example, if you do a lot of food preparation or people in your home are short, counter height stools may not work for you. Instead, look at swivel bar stools that can easily accommodate people of all ages and heights. Check out what’s available in your budget, and keep in mind other areas of your home where you’d like to use the stools.

Comfort Is King

You should mainly consider your comfort when choosing low back bar stools because everyone has different preferences of sitting and seating. Do you like hard seats, soft seats, or none at all? How about low back support? Achieving the perfect balance of comfort and style is key to having a great bar stool.


The price range for low back bar stools can vary widely depending on the style that you choose and whether or not they are made from expensive materials such as leather, which tend to be more costly than cloth or vinyl.

Size And Weight Limits

Another essential factor to consider when looking at low back bar stools is the size and weight limits. Avoid stools that may be too flimsy for you to sit on comfortably, especially if you are a heavy build.

Seat Cushion

Most low back bar stools have seat cushions made from vinyl or leather, but it is essential to check their condition before purchasing any stools. If they do not look and feel like they will last for a long time, it is best to avoid buying them as they may need to be replaced within a year or two.

The most important thing to remember is that you should make sure they fit your needs. Many people are injured because they pick stools without giving it much thought, causing them to spend days or even weeks in pain. If you’re having trouble choosing something that works for your home, ask around. Ask friends what types of seating options they have and ask if they like them.

If you know someone looking to purchase a new stool, go along and let the store employee help you pick something perfect for your needs and budget.

FAQs About Low Back Bar Stools
