Windsor Counter Stools

Wendy C. in California told us how she came to buy the Windsor counter stools we shipped to her recently. She is a very smart shopper! Wendy did what we keep hearing so many retailers lament about. She “showroomed” or shopped on her smartphone while browsing for Windsor counter stools in a bricks and mortar store near her home in Trabuco Canyon.

She gave us a call and decided she was willing to wait for us to ship a pair of stools because of the savings. Remember: we offer free shipping on all items! Wendy also liked the idea of buying directly from a “mom and pop” store on Main Street. Even though we have a virtual gallery on the web, we are indeed a family-run business here at our Main Street store in Newberry, South Carolina. Without big city overheads, we can offer antique and high-quality reproduction furniture at a small-town price. That’s why Wendy found our Woodbridge Windsor counter stool was so much cheaper. We’re glad she found us too!

Counter Stools Done Right

Here is the pair of swivel seat Windsor counter stools in Wendy’s lovely kitchen. The stools match perfectly with her Windsor dining chairs. They look exceptional against the dark veining in the counter top. Although the stools look authentically antique, they’ve got built-in modern convenience as the carved saddle seat turns on a heavy-duty swivel mechanism. This stool is also available as a Windsor bar height stool.

The stools also accent the curvy silhouette of the white lidded bowl and the elegant light fixtures.  Windsor style chairs and stools originated in Great Britain, as you might guess. The basic spindle back design like wheel spokes was seen by the 16th century. However, a more sophisticated version became easier to craft during the 18th century, when steam was used to create the bow-back typical of the chairs. The earliest chairs made in this way came from the small town of Windsor, in Berkshire, England. (Windsor is also quite well-known for its castle!) The name stuck.
Thanks to Wendy for letting us take a peek inside her kitchen – it’s a beauty!
