Are you a bigger, taller, or heavier person? Do you love outdoor entertaining?

If you answered yes to both of those questions, you’ve probably been more than a little disappointed in the number of outdoor furniture options available to you.

The sad reality is that most of the furniture on the market today (indoor or out) isn’t designed to support people weighing more than three hundred pounds properly. Beyond that mark, the number of options available to you drops off rather quickly. That’s true whether you’re in the market for loungers, rockers, or barstools.

The good news is that there are companies out there making furniture that’s a good fit for you, and little Renovoo is one of them. While not one of the industry’s bigger players, they’ve got a good reputation for making quality products, and their aluminum saddle stool is an excellent example of their work.

Matte Black, Renovoo Aluminum Saddle Seat Counter Stool, Overview

It’s a simple, rugged design that blends in seamlessly with most décor schemes, so if you’re looking for a high weight capacity stool for outdoor entertaining that will provide you with years of service, the Renovoo Aluminum Saddle Seat Counter Stool is an excellent option to consider.

In the sections that follow, we’ll tell you all about this durable little stool so you can decide for yourself if it’s the model you’ve been looking for. Let’s dive in and see what it’s capable of.

An Overview of the Renovoo Aluminum Saddle Seat Counter Stool

Unassuming. That’s the first thing most people think of when they see the Renovoo Aluminum Saddle Seat Counter stool for the first time. It’s a fair assessment, but that’s not really a bad thing. An unassuming design means that it’s not likely to clash with any other outdoor furniture you plan on adding.

If you have an eye for aesthetics, you know you need pieces that make a bold statement, others that serve as accent pieces, and others still that fade politely into the background. These stools fall into that last category, and you should absolutely know that before you commit to purchase this.

Dimension Stats, Renovoo Aluminum Saddle Seat Counter Stool, Matte Black

Aesthetics aside, let’s take a quick look at the stool, by the numbers:

  • Overall Product Dimensions: 18.1” W x 13” D x 24″ H
  • Seat Height: 24”
  • Seat Depth: 9.4”
  • Seat Width: 15.7”
  • Chair Weight: 5.52 pounds
  • Maximum Supported Weight: 400 pounds

Don’t let the smallish size of the seat put you off. These stools aren’t meant for spending extended periods in. They’re intended to be used as occasional seating like if you’re having a cookout and want to give people a convenient perch to eat a hotdog, or if you have a wet bar on your deck and you want people to have somewhere to take a seat and enjoy a cold drink. That kind of thing, and for that purpose, the seat dimensions should be just fine for almost anyone.

Even better, with a supported weight of 400-pounds and a matte black finished over a weather-resistant aluminum frame, they offer a simple, sturdy seating solution you can store or cover easily when they’re not in use.

Note: You can have these stools in your choice of colors, as long as you choose black. The lack of color selection is disappointing, but only marginally so. It’s pretty easy to get black to blend in well, whatever your prevailing décor or color scheme.

If you’d prefer a wood grain stool instead of black, you should have a look at the Ye Zi Bar Stool​, which offers a comparable, simple aesthetic in a different color.

Adjustability and Comfort

Matte Black, Renovoo Aluminum Saddle Seat Counter Stool, Front View

This will be a short section here in our Renovoo Aluminum Saddle Seat Counter Stool review because there’s absolutely nothing adjustable about these stools. Comfort-wise, the stock stool is nothing to write home about, although the saddle-style seat does improve things a bit.

The good news is that it’s a simple matter to buy seat pads sized to fit the stool and make them significantly more comfortable. Memory foam seat pads will cost a bit more but will give you a stool that’s surprisingly comfortable to spend time on.

No Assembly Required

While most of the furniture sold online arrives at your door unassembled, the Renovoo stool is an exception to that rule of thumb.  If you decide you want one or more of these, when they arrive at your house, all you’ll have to do is take them out of the box, put them wherever you want them to go, and sit down to test them out.

Pros and Cons of Renovoo Aluminum Saddle Seat Counter Stool

We like these little stools, but we don’t love them. They’re rugged, versatile and they support a generous amount of user weight. On the other hand, if you’re looking for something flashy or showy, these aren’t the stools you want.

They’re also a bit on the pricey side, but they’re built to last, and with proper care, they’ll provide you with years of reliable seating for the guests you entertain.

Renovoo Aluminum Saddle Seat Counter Stool Review Conclusion

Overall, the Renovoo Aluminum Saddle Seat Counter stools are fairly self-selecting. You’re either looking for an unassuming seating solution to provide your guests with occasional seating, or something flashier to use as a centerpiece. If you fall into the former category, you’ll love the simple and functional design of these stools. If you fall into the latter category, you’ll probably give these a pass without thinking twice. On that basis, we provisionally recommend them.
