Garden stools have gotten pretty popular over the last few years, and they don't seem to be losing their cool. Many, though, are absurdly overpriced. I don't want you to fall into that trap because I have also seen plenty of affordable ones. Take for instance this Round Open Work Garden Stool ($375) from Gump's. Yes, it may have an unusual mottled green glaze, but it's not any more stylish than one with a solid glaze — and its design is quite standard. You shouldn't spend any more than $100 on a garden stool, and I have even seen some for $50. I'll help you get started on your hunt.
