Thinking about some rustic bar stools for your man cave? These Winsome Satori rustic stools on Amazon will make your space look great. You can get these seats in packs of two or even packs of four depending on the size of your man cave bar.
These simple wooden stools measure 24 inches tall, 14.47 inches deep, and 17.48 inches wide. They’re made of beechwood and come in an appealing walnut color. It’s a darker brown than many people are used to but isn’t so gloomy that it would detract from your man cave décor.
With their traditional design, the Winsome Satori stools have square-shaped legs and a contoured top. There’s no cushions here, true, but these seats are a lot more comfortable than they appear. You’ll come to agree when you spend hours sitting here with your friends catching up over drinks.
These stools are very competitively priced and a lot cheaper than many alternatives so if comformt is a concern a simple cushion cover can add additional cushioning for your butt for just a few bucks. With this particular bar stools a regular stool cushion will not do (because they are round) so you’ll need to choose from ones like these.
Although these stools are pretty cheap to buy Mick actually posted a video on how to make this type of bar stool yourself for less than 10 bucks here.
Modern swivel bar stool
If you’re bouncing between one conversation and another on either side of you in your home bar then you want the freedom to move easily. Otherwise, you’ll end up with a sore neck from craning your head all night. Enter the Settle swivel bar stool from Williston Forge on Wayfair.
These appealing stools come in a two-pack and you have a choice of size. You can have either 24″ or 27″ high, so they work with bars with even taller counters. The standard bar stool is 24″ in height.

With their comfy upholstery and low back style, you won’t want to get up. These stools are super comfortable.
Stylish and modern, the Settle swivel stools have black metal bases and white faux leather backs and seats. The back of each stool has an opening for plenty of ventilation so you avoid that sweaty back syndrome that is so common with many leather backed bar stools. Although open the stool still gives optimum support to our back.
Rustic swivel bar stool
If you like the idea of a swivel stool but don’t like the modern look then the next bar stool on our list may be just up your street.
This Boorman Augusta swivel stool on Amazon has the rustic look of a traditional bar stool but offers the modern convenience of a swivel function. What’s more its padded seat and back add more comfort than a traditional rustic stool without making the stool look much different.
You can get a single stool or up to two in a single order. They come in two heights – either 24 inches for a standard bar height or 29 inches.
The stool can swivel and spin a full 360 degrees, giving you awesome movement in your man cave bar. The footrest and legs both come flared for an appealing, durable design you’ll love.
The chairs themselves are hardwood but include faux leather cushions backed with high-density foam that are really very comfortable.

There’s several colors to choose from, including all black, cappuccino (with darker wood and black cushions), and cherry.
We just love these stools as they offer the style of a rustic stool with modern comfort and convenience.

Two-tone stylish wooden bar stools
