I suppose you can use "chairs", too, but I think "stools" sounds better, besides, it sounds more like the Norwegian version. Anyway, it means that whatever dropped between the two stools couldn't decide where to sit and therefore failed to sit anywhere in particular at all. (Well, on the floor, obviously, but that's not very comfy, is it?)

I don't know if there's another English expression for the same thing, though...
