Nothing quite beats indulging in a croissant while sitting at a pavement café in the famous city of lights. Who wouldn't want to admire the bustling city from a comfy and stylish seat? But, if traveling to France is a no-no, you can always add a little French flair to your home with French bistro chairs! They're versatile, super comfortable, and, of course, full of character. Besides, bistro chairs are the ultimate indoor/outdoor furniture pieces! They can often be used as dining chairs inside and also serve as classy seating options for having drinks out on the patio.
Bistro chairs can be found in different materials with some being sturdier and more durable than others. Most sets are made with a metal frame since this material is typically the most robust and reliable for both indoor and outdoor use. With metal, you can choose whether you want a lightweight steel set for your kitchen breakfast nook or a heavier aluminum one that can stand up to the rigors of windy days. Some metals, such as copper, won't rust even when left outside. If all-metal chairs are too stark for you, the classic aluminum frame in a bamboo finish will give you the best of both worlds -- the durability of metal and the warm look of wood.
Another option is wooden bistro chairs. This material offers a natural charm that immediately brings warmth and personality to any space. Wooden chairs also have a vintage aspect to them that easily matches and complements various ensembles. If you plan on setting your chairs in your garden, deck, or patio, go for a wood that is weather-resistant and can repel rotting and moisture, such as solid wood.
French-style bistro chairs, for the most part, are made from rattan with woven synthetic or natural fiber seats and backs. These staple furniture pieces encompass everything you'd want in a chair -- comfort, versatility, style, and durability. Plus, they come in different models too, including counter stool and bar stool versions, armless types, as well as bistro chairs in children's sizes.
