I purchased some regular meeting room chairs they were just a tad too high.
When i first started out i did loads of research into stools trying to track down the traditional ones, two types stood out for me

1. when i first saw them they had capcom stickers on and were called the capcom egg 45cm tall which is deece and fit in nicely with candies

http://www.atlanticshopping.co.uk/bar-stools/cocoon-stool-white.html

2. By far the most practical is the drum throne. Height is adjustable, they are designed to be sat on for a decent amount of time and can be purchased cheaply.

Also hello fellow kent resident!

I have Ikea Julius bar stools that I cut the legs off to get the perfect height.

If you like back support, Ikea's Jeff chairs are very nice and also very cheap. :awe:

I dunno what the big fuss is over the 'real' ones, they are scabby, old, uncomfortable, overpriced and just plain dull IMO.

I've always liked the Japan game centre ones, and I can vouch for the 'Rocketstools'. The service is excellent and the stools are comfortable and very good quality. The only thing is they are a touch lower than the Japanese stools.

Perfect height. I paid 9.99€ for mine but they are 12.99€ now.
Wanted: SNK Candy 18 spares. Mainly looking for a marquee holder & the "video games" sign.

I just use an Ikea budget special. The perfect height for a japanese cab. It's served me well. ;)

I like the Ikea Egil stools.
They are comfortable and the height is adjustable.
End of last year I bought 4 of those for 9€/each, but I don't think that you can get them anymore (depends also on the country).
