Finding a stylish bar stool isn't hard, but tracking down an attractive one for a reasonable price is damn-near impossible. On top of that, you usually need to purchase multiple (who buys a single bar stool?), so the cost adds up. Since most of us are on a budget, that means we have to search far and wide for affordable bar stools that are also cute and well-made — and that's exactly what we did. We scoured the internet and gathered 10 stellar bar stools that cost under $100. You can thank us later.
