I use two oak stools I bought for £30 from a furniture store, I think they are bedroom dresser stools or something. You can import the 'official' stools from Japan ,but at £65 each after postage, no thanks, I'd rather spend that on games.

I saw a real nice White stool in habitat a few months back. I will be putting that on my Christmas list.

These? Not bad, but i reckon they'd deflate after a couple of weeks. I suppose you could re-stuff em?

*Edit* Item description says 'solid beech', can't see that deflating :lol:

Maybe its just a girl thing but I love looking for stools for my cabs. If your in the states go to the
swap meets. Look at these cute j-stools I found! Also I know mentioned earlier IKEA has some great
sales on stools. Try looking in the kid's section for good plastic cheap ones.

I'd go to the expense of importing a couple from japan if they did TarePanda ones. (1 - 2)
