This is a good question. If you ask 10 retailers, you'll get 10 responses. In my opinion, wood bar stools are prone to problems not encountered with welded metal bar stools. Due to the soft nature of wood (when compared to steel), screws and joints tend to come loose over time- especially wood with arms. The constant outward stress on the arms can loosen the attachment points resulting in a loose feel. Legs and stretchers (horizontal support bars) can also become loose over time resulting in an unstable and potentially dangerous bar stool. Still, there are decorating situations in which only wood will work.
You can purchase stools just about anywhere at any price. Many of the major "Big Box" stores offer different styles and heights at very competitive prices. They typically are ready to assemble and have few, if any options.
The rattan and bamboo are only two types of wood used in designing modern bar stools, and are making a come-back with a slight retro feel.
In choosing or buying bar stools, you might probably would want to consider first is the space. In that manner, you will know how much of those stools you will need. If you are not that sure, ask some opinions from others. In this case, the look of an area with a dumping view of stools will not happen.
