Bars & bar sets are somewhat obligatory when decorating a bar. They can also be used in the den, family room or on the patio. A bar can be unabashedly what it appears to be or it can be disguised as something else, such as globe. When a bar is accompanied by matching stools and other items, then it is a bar set. That’s pretty nice if you are furnishing a newly set up bar, den, or family room. When things match, it helps tie everything in together. But bars or bar stools can also be accent furniture.
