Metal protectors are available on many of our wood bar stools with flat footrests. This feature is standard on certain items and as an option on others. Please consult the specific item for the cost, if any, to apply the footrest protector. Unless specified a satin brass footrest protector will be used. Satin chrome and black protectors are also available at no additional charge. Please specify on the order which protector is to be applied. Footrest protectors are metal with a decorative finish.
