Recommend Sturdy Stools for Beach House - 4 broke last weekend

anyahJuly 12, 2011

I have an Ashley Cottage Retreat counter height table. I have 2 of the matching stools which are fine and sturdy and discontinued. I bought them for $50 each and now I can only find them for over $100 each.

Since I need a lot of stools (and don't have a lot of space), I originally purchased 14 white Pottery barn Napolean backless look-a-likes from Lowe's to fill in at the table and counter. They are not sturdy and we lose a few each year. Last weekend we lost four.

I need to find inexpensive, sturdy, 24" counter height stools which coordinate with my ashley set seen here:

I have been looking at these Coaster Furniture stools (link below):

Does anyone have any experience with sturdiness of Coaster stools or chairs? Any other recommendations? Our beach house gets hard use and boys do not listen when you tell them not to lean back on stools.

Thanks - Your help is appreciated!

How about looking for stools with metal legs. Hard to break. We are located in a resort, beach area & alot of the rental agencies want metal dining chairs due to the issue with people leaning back on the back legs of the chairs & causing breakage.
