Where are you located? Mueller's has some in their catalog but they are expensive and don't look all that comfy (aware that comfort is subjective)
I live in central VA and got a set of 4 from C.P.Dean from Richmond. They are solid oak with black leather cushions. The also carried fabrics in many colors and patterns. They gave me a great deal on them and threw in a pub table which they delivered to my home (80mi. one way) The table was warped on the top and they delivered another and even let me keep the warped one! THEY WERE AND ARE AWESOME TO DEAL WITH! I get nothing but compliments from ALL my company on my chairs.

This isn't what you're looking for but they make nice spectator chairs. Got these on sale at Value City Furniture for about $100 each.

I'd check around locally. We found a killer deal on a couple of chairs at a local furniture store. The chairs were made in Wilsonville, OR with a cushioned seat and back, cup holder, cue stick notch on cup holder, and a platform under the seat that slides out either side to put food or whatever on. IMO this type of purchase is better made when you can try them out before hand. Also any problems or defects can be sorted out as well. If a furniture store sits on something long enough, they are more willing to give you a break on the price.

Depending what you are looking for, you can find cool stuff at thrift shops and garage sales. Not to save money but to find things you would never find anywhere else. I found an old church pew I have in my hallway. In the billiard room we have 1950's type stuff. I have big kettle lights over the table like you will see in the movie the Hustler. I paid $5.00 each for them and just had to upgrade the wiring. Don't be in a hurry and you never know what you may find. The thing with spectator chairs is they have to be higher so you can see the table, but that can be solved if you have the room by building a spectator platform then any chairs you choose will work, they don't have to be just pool spectators chairs. Its fun to do something original and creative instead of the same old - same old.

How far Upstate? I'm in Rochester and Tommy T is 30 miles west of me.
