As a gardener, I am amused that I only ever have seen these used indoors, in higher-end decor.Just sayin'.
Tj Maxx/Homegoods has been getting in shipments the past few weeks (at least in the West LA locations). Prices run from $49.00-$69.00. While there isn't as much variety in terms of color and design, you can usually find nice ones at a good price and since you take it right from the store, no shipping.
I love them, but every high-end interior designed home has one and then I would just look like I was jumping on the bandwagon 2 years too late.
Don't forget the bargain basement ones at Target, which at $55 could easily be spray painted glossy white if that's what you're looking for.http://www.target.com/Garden-Stool-Teal/dp/B001CHD8YU/sr=1-2/qid=1235429373/ref=sr_1_2/175-8778386-2019738?ie=UTF8&frombrowse=0&index=target&rh=k%3Agarden%20stool&page=1

I just got the one desertacacia mentioned from Target for $19.99 on Clearance in West L.A... what a deal!
Great idea, desertacacia! Love the idea of customizing the color to your liking.And, calihoya, great deal! Thanks for sharing!
I have a couple of those Target stools, and they are very nice quality. They look better than they do in the photo, and they are surprisingly comfortable. AND I paid the regular price for them, darn it.Tenderleaf, I do use garden stools outdoors, as well as indoors. They look very attractive outside, and they stay clean, unlike teak furniture.Of those featured here, I especially like the West Elm Moroccan ones.
I bought 2 metallic garden stools a year and a half ago when they were on clearance at Ballard Designs. I saw the exact same ones for double the price on Wisteria. They're great because they're so versatile, but yes, they seem to be everywhere.
I saw these at my local Home Goods this weekend (in Florida)! The only complaint I have about theirs are the "painted" ones look cheap, the are covered in a decal and it is glossed over. They had plenty of solid colored ones though too, and those looked nice!
Umm...The West Elm stool and the Weego Home stool are identical. Why is the Weego stool $376 more expensive? No one else noticed this?
I love these! thanks for the resources everyone
i noticed taryn...
The Weego Home stool is by a company called Shine Everyday, a San Diego area company that has a line of furniture and lighting. More than likely, they used the same factory as West Elm and the design was ever so slightly modified for the WE version which clearly is a better value.
I was going to post about HomeGoods too. Lots of varieties. Same as the Wisteria ones for $49.99.I don't mind jumping on a bandwagon if it's a good band! Style isn't about being first.
I've also been a fan of garden stools for years, and feel both tweaked and vindicated that they're showing up everywhere these days. I laughed out loud at Tenderleaf's point, as I'm not a gardener either!On my blog this week, I posted a bunch of images, including garden stools in room settings, along with a few on their own.http://jgkitchens.blogspot.com/2009/03/garden-stools-not-just-for-gardens.htmlOne I couldn't seem to upload, but also like, is CB2's garden stool-inspired Hive Table ($44.95):http://www.cb2.com/family.aspx?c=114&f=4975&q=hive&fromLocation=Search&DIMID=400001&SearchPage=1As quiltmaster noted above, "I don't mind jumping on a bandwagon if it's a good band!"If anyone has a history of garden stool links they could post or send, I'd love to read it!
I love 'em, too. (Have for years, though, as tenderleaf points out, I'm not a gardener either!). If you'd like to see some in different room settings, please check out this blog post:http://jgkitchens.blogspot.com/2009/03/garden-stools-not-just-for-gardens.htmlCB2 has a nice one, too, called Hive. It's only $44.95. Tech issues kept me from including it.If anyone interested in garden stools has a link to their history, I'd love to see it!
