Where to Place Bar Stools

Bar stools have become an essential element of Australian outdoor entertaining. They grace outdoor bars, poolside areas, and alfresco dining spaces, offering a chic and casual seating option. Ideal for gatherings with family and friends, these versatile pieces provide a relaxed yet stylish atmosphere, encouraging social interaction and creating memorable moments in the great Australian outdoors. Osier Belle's designer bar stools are customisable and therefore adaptable to any outdoor location.

Aesthetics of the Malawi Bar Stool

Osier Belle's Malawi designer bar stools, showcase a truly distinctive aesthetic. Inspired by the iconic African woven chair, this outdoor bar stool reimagines traditional design with a contemporary twist. Its intricate weaving and high quality materials textures ties a retro and traditional with modern outdoor materials. 

Resilience of the Malawi Bar Stool

The Malawi is originally woven from organic materials, over time however, these materials will absorb water and deteriorate. At Osier Belle we use PET and environmentally friendly synthetic wickers which are proven to withstand the harsh elements and diverse climate of Australia. Our skilled craftspeople weave all our designer bar stools by hand to ensure the best look and highest quality. As well as wickers, our designer bar stools feature a wide selection of premium fabrics, including Sunbrella from the USA and France, along with Agora from Spain. These fabrics are not only water-repellent but also guaranteed to remain fade-free for a minimum of five years. This assurance is proudly covered within our comprehensive 5-year warranty. In addition, we now offer a range of fabrics with our exclusive Osier Belle SHIELD protection, making them entirely waterproof, providing even greater durability and versatility in outdoor settings

Custom Sizing the Malawi Bar Stool

Osier Belle offers boundless customisation possibilities, making our bar stools an ideal choice to complement your existing bar or structure. Speak to the team about adjusting heights, widths and dimensions. 


Yes, we provide a 5-year warranty which includes a zero-fade guarantee on all Sunbrella and Agora outdoor fabrics. Even if out of warranty, we always endeavour to do our very best to assist clients. We can ensure your furniture will last for years to come and way beyond its warranty.

Osier Belle outdoor furniture is made with PET, environmentally friendly synthetic Rehau and Viro wickers. This material is high quality and comes from two of the most reputable suppliers in the world. The wicker we use is made for extreme endurance and has been tried and tested to withstand the harsh Australian climate. With traditional rattan outdoor furniture, organic materials were used such as banana leaves. These look great but don’t last permanently outdoors due to absorbing water and breaking down quickly. That’s why we use a synthetic material instead. It won’t absorb moisture and is less prone to any cracking or splitting and is guaranteed to outlast its generous 5-year warranty.

Yes you can certainly wash Osier Belle’s outdoor furniture cushions. Our products are intentionally crafted to be user-friendly when it comes to cleaning and require minimal maintenance. However, it's natural for items left outside throughout the year to require a periodic refresh. All cushions are suitable for machine washing, making it convenient to give them a refreshing clean every now and again. Covers can be placed on a standard wash cycle, just avoid putting in the dryer or ironing. Alternatively, you can spot clean covers with water or a light fabric cleaner such as Sunbrella's 303 spot cleaner which is available to purchase at the showroom. 

As a standard we have most of our Malwai designer bar stools at 110cm  high with a seat height of 85cm. However, depending on you and your space and if you have an existing bar or area you are trying to match stools to, this height could be adjusted. As we hand made all our furniture ourselves at our own factory we can make bar stools at any height, with the seat height and foot rests all suited to your needs.
