I purchased some regular meeting room chairs they were just a tad too high.
When i first started out i did loads of research into stools trying to track down the traditional ones, two types stood out for me

1. when i first saw them they had capcom stickers on and were called the capcom egg 45cm tall which is deece and fit in nicely with candies

2. By far the most practical is the drum throne. Height is adjustable, they are designed to be sat on for a decent amount of time and can be purchased cheaply.

I have Ikea Julius bar stools that I cut the legs off to get the perfect height.

I dunno what the big fuss is over the 'real' ones, they are scabby, old, uncomfortable, overpriced and just plain dull IMO.

I've always liked the Japan game centre ones, and I can vouch for the 'Rocketstools'. The service is excellent and the stools are comfortable and very good quality. The only thing is they are a touch lower than the Japanese stools.

I like the Ikea Egil stools.
They are comfortable and the height is adjustable.
End of last year I bought 4 of those for 9€/each, but I don't think that you can get them anymore (depends also on the country).
