The Ego Bar Stool is the most expensive Bar Stool in our range. There are two reasons for this:
1) Just like the human body, all bar stool seats require a "skeleton," which forms the basic shape of the seat and gives it the strength to hold and support weight. Most bar stool seats, including the Ego Bar Stool, have skeletons made from laminated plywood, which is created in a former from layers of veneered wood that are bonded together under high pressure in the shape required. In the case of the Ego Bar Stool, the shape of the seat is so complex that TWO laminated ply shapes are required. Then those two shapes are bonded together to create the final seat shape.
2) The time taken to fit the foam and upholster the Ego Bar Stool seat is almost twice as long as the time for most other seats because of the complex shape.
Having said all of that, the Ego Bar stool is extremely comfortable and a great long-term investment in style and quality. If you will be using the stools extensively for long periods, then comfort is a major consideration.
There are matching Ego Dining Chairs which are featured on another page of our website. (Click the highlighted link to view the chairs.)
Ego Bar Stools can be fitted with six different styles of bases:
N.B Extra finishes for the Adjustable Stool Bases have been added recently.
Here is the full list of available finishes for every base; -
Mirror Chrome or Black Chrome or Brushed Steel. Alternatively
Black or Charcoal or Chocolate Brown or Gold or Nickel Satin (Silver) EPC Finish and finally
Bright Gold Plated or Brushed Gold Plated for those with larger budgets.
EPC means Epoxy Powder Coated. This hard, Matt Finish is applied to the steel, then baked in an oven.
The Nickel Satin Finish is a Matt Silver colour
The Gold Plated Finishes use Real Gold, so they are rather expensive. There is an alternative. By choosing Gold EPC finish, you will get a matt Gold Finish at a significantly lower price.
You can choose the base and the finish that you want by clicking the "Base Style and Finish" button, then pick the option you like. The extra cost for each selection will show in a bracket beside it.
N.B. The gas column must always be chrome plated because that is the only finish that is hard enough to resist the constant rubbing movement on an adjustable stool. The factory default is to supply Mirror Chrome Gas Columns. (Except for the Black Chrome Base which has a black chrome gas column.) However, with the Black and Charcoal finishes, we consider that the gas column should be the Black chrome finish, because it blends better. This is available as an optional extra.
We recommend the Bases with Brushed Steel or the EPC finishes because those finishes hide dust and scratches better.
The mirror chrome base cover plates act like a mirror lying flat on the ground, so they reflect everything above them - the underside of your breakfast bar, which may not be as attractive as the top with wires and brackets.
Also if a girl is wearing a short skirt (or a man is wearing a kilt ) then there can be a modesty issue. (I know, because I wear a kilt occasionally !!)
The seats can be upholstered in any one of 30 colours of real leather or 27 colours of Eco Leather (A High Quality Man Made Material that looks and feels like leather, but at a lower cost.) To view all Upholstery options, please click the highlighted link. You will see the leather sample card but if you scroll down you will see the Eco Leather sample card below, complete with some comments and recommendations.
We can upholster the bar stools and chairs in a range of fire retardant velvet or tweed fabrics as well. However we feel that bar stools in particular are prone to spillages of food and drink. These spillages can be wiped off Leather or Eco Leather quite easily but they may soak into fabric coverings staining and discolouring them. Having said that, if you want a fabric cover or a special non standard cover then please ask for more information.
We have sample cards with cuttings of the leather or Eco Leather in all colours - One sample card with 30 Real Leather samples and a separate sample card with 27 Eco Leather Samples. We are happy to post these to customers living in Britain or Ireland. However we do ask that note your colour selection and then return them as soon as possible because they are in constant high demand.
We handled a large project with Ego Bar Stools and chairs recently. Please click the Highlighted link to view this whole project:-
Once again, we advise that the Ego Bar Stool is Extremely comfortable. However we would not recommend them as Breakfast Bar Stools, because the full depth arms mean that the seat must be placed slightly further away from the worktop to allow a person to climb onto the seat. If you are eating a full knife and fork meal, it is more comfortable to have the worktop and your plate close to hand.
In our opinion, Ego Stools are superb as Bar Stools - for sipping a glass of wine or a coffee or eating snacks.
The customer in the above project has 6 Ego Bar Stools at his worktop, but this is beside his bar. The diningh table is nearby for eating meals.
