Richardson Seating is one of the largest manufacturers of logo bar stools. We specialize in logo bar stools. A logo bar stool is a parts counter stool with a message, slogan, product image, or logo permanently embedded into the stool. We reverse print on the underside of clear vinyl.  This process protects the image for years.  Our line of logo bar stools will help your customers retain name and product recognition at the parts counter.

We offer Pantone matching and 4 color process printing capabilities. Our stools are the perfect point of purchase advertisement for manufacturers trying to get a message across to the end user at the counter. You have probably seen our stools at your local hardware store, auto dealer, motorcycle dealer, HVAC counter, plumbing supply company, and paint distributor. In addition to parts counter stools, we also manufacture officially licensed stools for the basement, kitchen, garage and rec room.

Since all products are upholstered in house, we are able to make all of our items in over 200 different stock upholstery vinyls. We also offer the ability to use customer's own material, (COM). Our standard lead-time is only 3 weeks for a custom order of almost any size. All of our seating products ship out of Chicago, IL 60622.

Richardson Seating is one of the last few American manufacturers of retro bar stools, retro diner chairs, and retro counter stools. We carry all of the most popular retro style vinyl colors. We carry the famous retro Cracked Ice vinyl in Cracked Ice red, Cracked Ice grey, and Cracked Ice yellow. We also carry the full line of Naugahyde's famous Zodiac series vinyl. You can't get more retro than Cracked Ice Vinyl and Naugahyde Zodiac Vinyl.

Richardson Seating manufactures floor mounted bar stools just like they did in the 1950's.  Fixed mounted bar stools are the stools you find bolted to the ground at your favorite soda shop or diner. These counter stools are often referred to as soda stools, fountain stools, soda fountain stools, or simply counter stools. Since Richardson Seating cuts the steel tubing in house, we can make our fixed mounted counter stools any height between 18 and 30 inches. You are not limited to just the popular 18 inch stools, 24 inch stools, and 30 inch stools of most manufacturers.

Our fixed mounted counter stools are the best in the business.  We reinforce our counter stools with a hand routed cast iron bushing, steel threaded rods, and a cast iron bell. We use cast iron because only cast iron will stand the test of time at a busy 24-hour diner or restaurant.
