Adjustable height stools use gas-lift pistons to adjust their heights, operated by a lever under their seats. These versatile modern stools can almost always be used at both bar and counter height surfaces,(view our buying guide to learn more about stool and surface heights)- they also allow their user to find the most comfortable position for their personal use. They can also swivel, adding to their functionality.
Adjustable height stools usually have a built-in footrest on their post, allowing for a more comfortable experience. The post and base can be built of almost any material, but most have a chrome or brushed steel construction. Most have a weight capacity of 250 lbs.
