Bistro Tables and Chairs
Are you a fan of the café look? Many kitchens and dining spaces, even modern ones, revel in the charm of bistro tables and seating. Below we see a French Kitchen Bistro Table featuring a white Carrera marble top. The table is paired with Vienna Black Chairs boasting a classic Bentwood design from 1859. The furnishings can all be purchased through Crate and Barrel.
Pairing bistro chairs with a bistro table is picture-perfect. But it can be just as eye-catching to mix and match styles. In the next image, we see bentwood chairs with a natural finish. But instead of a café table, they surround a modern white Saarinen Tulip table. The result, an unexpected blend of iconic styles. [from Emily McCall]
