Best Simple Backless High Stools

We have a butcher block island in our kitchen and have really come to like sitting around it in the evening. I'd bought one stool at first, and just recently bought a second one, which allows us all to sit down (finally! says Sara). In doing so, I fell in love again with our stools and then spotted them this past weekend on the cover of a 2006 Martha Stewart Living - in her own kitchen! Surprisingly, although Martha lists many of her resources, she doesn't say where her stools are from. Let me help you!...
