A while back I needed to purchase a couple bar stools for my kitchen counter. I wasn’t quite sure what I needed. Fortunately, I found all the answers I needed, on that magical place called the Internet.
Specifically, on Barstools4u.com, I found a fantastic info page which includes this image:
Here’s how this would have gone down before the web:
INT. FURNITURE SHOWROOM, LIT BY FLUORESCENT BULBS
A male CUSTOMER in a FRIENDS T-SHIRT and STONE-WASHED JEANS approaches a SALES REP, who sports a SWEATER VEST and DARK CORDUROY PANTS.
Hi. I’m looking to purchase some bar stools.
Sure, we can help you there. I’m going to need to ask you some questions. First up, how high is your counter?
It hovers 42 inches off the ground.
For that, I would recommend a 30-inch stool.
Ah, ok. I also have a 36-inch counter in my basement. That too hovers, unsupported by any base.
Ehhhh, for that, you’re probably looking at a 24 or 26-incher.
Got it. Now, I often wear, I dunno, some sort of helmet, when I eat? Will that change anything?
Oh, no, not at all, you’re all set there.
Ah, great, great. I’m going to browse around, looking at many different items in rapid succession without needing to click any buttons.
