Woo hoo – it’s Friday! That means it’s time for another TL4L. This week I’m lusting after industrial style metal barstools. Let’s see if we can find them on the cheap, m’kay?
This was my inspiration for the week. Just look at it…. sigh… Ain’t it a beaut? I found it at Hudson Goods with a not so good price tag of $275. I mean, it’s awesome and all, but at that price it would cost over $1100 to have a set of 4.
The next on the list is this version from Sundance. I actually like the brushed metal a little better, and if you look closely you can see a little more detail in the seat that I kind of love – a hole that acts as a handle to move it. I dunno why, but I’m really diggin’ that detail! However, I’m not diggin’ the price. It is a little better, at $225, but that’s still $900 for a set of 4.
So this version from Wayfair isn’t really my favorite, but at $173.98 for a set of 2 of them, it’s not a horrible option. Since Joss & Main pulls their stock from Wayfair, I’m pretty sure you might be able to find these on there if you are patient and wait. This particular design is just kinda meh for me. I don’t hate it, but I certainly don’t love it. But, for a set of 4, it would run you about $350.
And finally, I think we have our winner: This version from Overstock. You can’t really see it in this image, but from the other images on the page, I know that there is that coveted “handle hole” in the top of the seat. And I’m diggin’ the finish as well! And the price – oh it’s pretty good – at $99 for a set of 2! And remember that everything on Overstock ships for $2.95, so the shipping ain’t gonna break the bank, either! So a set of 4 of them will run about $200 – which is a STEAL, especially compared to the others here.
I know, I know… you can find these second hand. I’ve actually found one that was somewhat simliar – but it was still nearly $20. Sometimes ya just gotta splurge on something fantastic, ya know?
So… that’s it for TL4L this week. Are you searching to find something on the cheap? Leave me a note in the comments and I’ll try to sniff out the best deal!

That is a great find. Thanks for doing all the legwork for us! I don’t usually find a lot of things I like on Overstock. com but when have I have been extremely happy with the price and the product. I need to check them out more often. Love that industrial look!
Daniela @Frugal Aint Cheap says
I’ll take 2 for $99 anyday!
WHAT a find! Overstock is just amazing, isn’t it? xo Diana

And Overstock has an outlet where I live…so maybe I’ll keep my out for them to show up there. Found a set of 4 tolix style chairs for only $36 for all 4!!

Love this find! Now how about one of those industrial cart coffee tables? 🙂
I’m diggin those stools, very cool!
Till my ship comes in I’m going with the price at the big O., those are pretty close to the inspiration one for the price.
Great stools, Exactly what I was looking for I need them to stack for storage reasons. Heading over to the “0” to take a look-see.
I’ve got 4 of the overstock stools and they are wonderful! And now I’m glad to know I got the best deal!
You have so many fantastic crafty ideas! I would love it if you would join me for my very first link party and share them at http://mommyssweetconfessions.blogspot.com/2012/08/sundays-sweet-confessions-first-link.html

The Overstock stools are a great value. I bought a set of the red ones myself, but they were too tomato-red for me, and I needed more of a cherry red. Plus my husband and son complained they were too small (whatever), so I returned them. I end up with the blue Lyons industrial stools you showed above. They are not a bad price, and they have a bigger seat than the Tolix-style stools (like the Overstock ones). I wish they were a little more turquoisey, but I still am super-happy with them. Here they are in my kitchen:

I wish I had read this post a month ago first when I was searching the net or my new stools… I had no idea what the name of them where…had just seen a picture on a blog somewhere and knew I wanted them… I did end up buying four from Overstock…although they were onsale AND I found a coupon code so I got all four for 130 bucks!! yay! BTW they do have the handle and the finish on them is so much fun!

OK, my HUSBAND remembered (out of the blue) that I had showed him this post and HE encouraged me to order these. Which I just did. And got free shipping!
Thanks Gina, for all your creative ideas!
Targets website offers a very similar stool 2 for $99.00.
I saw a similar stool at sam’s club the other day for $20 a piece. They were named Hudson barstool.
Ross stores had them for $36 each
