Outdoor furniture that looks great, needs minimal maintenance, and withstands weather and daily use is a tall order, but our bar- and counter-height furniture does it all—and then some. These pieces and preconfigured sets stand up to spills, stains, and stormy weather, and all come with our promise of lasting durability. We also design all of our bar and counter seating with footrests for added comfort. Read on to learn more about collections and discover what sets each one apart.
What is the Difference Between Bar-Height and Counter-Height?
Bar height is the tallest option of dining furniture available—think the chairs, stools, and high-top tables at your favorite sports bar or pub. Counter height is slightly short, around the same dimensions as kitchen islands or counters.
