  • 1. How Big Is The Plonk Bar Stool?
    The Plonk timber bar stool is a generous size for a bar stool to make sitting at the bar feel relaxed rather than hurried! The seat is a nice big 44cm wide and 44 cm deep with a seat height of 66cm to easily accommodate 2-hour sittings at restaurant bars. The backrest is 88cm high from the floor to the top to provide a comfortable cafe style bar stool for longer lunches. If you have a bar height counter at home, you probably love to have casual dinners there rather than at your dining table. The plonk timber bar stool makes this even more comfortable and alleviates sore backs from bad posture.

    2. What makes the Plonk Bar Stool unique?
    Most bar stools are small to cram as many diners as possible along a cafe counter or restaurant bar. They are often uncomfortable as a result which might result in your customers choosing to dine elsewhere if there is only bar seating available! The Plonk is a cafe style bar stool designed to be comfortable and encourage your diners to come back time and time again. You can trust the durable construction of the Plonk bar stool and be confident that it will handle commercial and high traffic hospitality with ease.

    3. What is the Plonk Bar Stool Made of?
    The Plonk bar stool is a solid timber bar stool made from Tasmanian oak for the legs and Australian Hoop Pine ply for the seat, backrest and ribs. There is no steel or plastic in the design, but there are felt glides on the feet to help protect your floors. The two types of timber are also used on the matching Plonk Table, Plonk dining chair and Plonk Benches to offer an Australian made timber dining suite with a modern minimalist mood, that’s also a great cafe and restaurant furniture collection. Because So Watt are all about plywood, the Plonk bar height stool features the unique plywood dowel plugs handmade by So Watt on the front and rear rails where the supports are joined together.
