Like a lot of people I really love the Bertoia wire barstools, especially in white. But, they are a real investment, one that we're not prepared to make just yet. So, instead of throwing suitcases of money at DWR, Matt and I went a more alternative route when purchasing our counter stools. We went to Modernica and picked out some Eames wire counter stools and took them home with us same day. I'm really happy with them and really love the walnut bases. You can get them in fiberglass shells of any color as well as chrome wire with a selection of seat pads and bases. Check them out right here, they're about half the price of a Bertoia barstool.
