Bar Stools and Cushions

Foam layout of bar stools cusions, Alpha Creations

The Alpha Creations cushion seat is made of 3 layers of padding. 2 layers of high density foam and one layer of upholstery batting. Our experience has lead to a combination that is comfortable and that will last for many years.


Homeowners have many choices to make when it comes to the purchase of bar furniture and what many have found is that the upholstered barstool has numerous advantages. The variety of different upholsteries available increases the versatility of the bar chairs. No longer are the bar stools confined to the bar or game room, but they can fit into the décor of any room depending on the design of the chairs.

One of the biggest advantage of the upholstered bar stools is that the upholstery can be altered to suit the changing styles in the home. Re-upholstered chairs are like having new furniture at a fraction of the cost.

There are a few factors to consider when choosing the correct upholstery. Firstly ensure that the bar chairs complement the existing décor or theme of the room, and if the upholstery suits the style of the chairs. Solid coloured upholstery fabrics blend well with most decors, whereas patterns can highlight the bar stools and the colour can affect the room décor. Bright colours tend to complement more modern furniture while earthy colours tend to suit the traditional looks.

Functionality and durability of the upholstery fabric also plays a role in the choice of material and colour of the barstool. Consideration needs to be given to the following:

  • How often the bar chairs will be used?
  • Where will the bar chairs be used, i.e. will food or drinks be involved, or will the barstools be exposed to sunlight?

Alpha Creations offers upholstery in fabric, vinyl and imitation leather also known as leather touch. Genuine leather can also be requested but would come at a higher price. Fabric is more useful for lounge and bar while vinyl is more suitable for restaurants and kitchens as the oil and grime can be wiped from vinyl with a light detergent.

Another advantage of the stool cushions is that it is more comfortable. Due to the padding effect, cushions remain comfortable for longer while hard seats such as wooden seats, will only be comfortable to a point. Cushions will therefore be a great choice if the guests are going to remain seated for a longer period of time.

Another option of vinyl cushions is that they can be imprinted with your company logo or message of your choice. This is popular for shop fronts and companies that want to increase the exposure and their company image. Branded bar stools are an effective way to put your brand out there without being too obtrusive.
