It’s highly important-- no pun intended-- that you know where you want your pub set to go. The great thing about pub sets, whether they're bar-height or counter-height is that they work great in small spaces, too. Whether you use them in your kitchen, dining area, or even your living room, you have a cozy spot for meals and gathering with friends.
Sticking with tradition and merely seeking a cozy space to enjoy a cocktail and good company? Bar-height tables measure 40-42 inches tall, start there. Browsing for something that perches you and your guests at an elevation that lends itself better to digestion? Counter-height tables stand at a more convenient 35-36 inches.
A counter-height bar stool is commonly 23-28 inches from the floor to the seat (23- to 28-inch seat height). Pair counter-height bar stools with 35 to 37-inch table heights.Bar-height Table and Stool
A bar-height bar stool is commonly 29-32 inches from the floor to the seat (29 to 32-inch seat height). Pair bar-height bar stools with 41 to 43-inch table heights.
Pub sets come with a single bistro-style table and two or more matching stools or chairs, depending on whether or not you want the back support. The table can be a single pedestal design, boast a double pedestal, or feature lengthy legs. The pub set catalog is a vast thing full of round, square, oval, rectangular, and abstract tops paired with unique base structures and seating options that range from the rustic and traditional to the chic and modern. But no matter what style you choose, remember that--as in all things-- you get what you pay for. For indoor pub table designs, wood- and metal-frame finishes are the most popular.
A classic choice with a sturdy, country appeal. These sets come in a plethora of wood types, veneers, and finishes. Engineered wood or “MDF” for short is sturdy enough and wonderfully affordable, but it will never look quite as convincing or last as long as genuine hardwood.
A metal set can be transitional or modern, but will always be reliable. Whether you’re looking for clean lines or sleek contours, there’s a metal pub group out there for you. And don’t just think of it as being black powder-coated or shimmering chrome! There’s no shortage of alluring finishes to be found here.
Beyond quality frame construction, you’ll also have your pick of tabletop styles--inlaid tile never fails to impress-- as well as upholstery options for the various chairs and stools surrounding your centerpiece. We suggest finding something that not only looks great and is durable, but is also easy to clean. Let’s face it, when you create a more chill setting, people can sometimes get too relaxed and spill a drink or three.
Yes, you can create a cozy outdoor dining space with an outdoor-rated pub set! Pub tables and sets that are designed for outdoors will have more durable, weather-resistant materials such as plastic, cast aluminum, or wood. Sometimes certain designs will even incorporate an umbrella hole to shield off harmful UV rays. A petite patio space will look great with a quaint bar or counter-height set for a little al fresco or evening glass of wine.
