Bistro Sets for Small Spaces
When outdoor space is limited, a patio bistro set is ideal. The scale is just right for a private retreat where you can enjoy your morning coffee, a glass of wine or an intimate dinner for two. What’s more, you can find outdoor dining sets for small spaces in a variety of styles, from traditional to contemporary.
Country Living’s three-piece Cherry Valley Bistro Set combines a rustic charm with elegant features. The set’s pretty scrollwork and lattice design is reminiscent of a small café in the French Quarter. Beneath its graceful good looks, the set has a sturdy granite tabletop and a steel frame that is scratch-, chip- and rust-resistant. Spring-coil motion makes the two chairs extra comfortable; the chair cushions are covered in a très chic reversible plaid or solid yellow to suit your mood.
You can while away the hours this summer with Ty Pennington Style’s Mayfield Bistro Set. It’s perfect for a small porch or sunroom. The set captures the look and feel of wicker, but it’s actually made from a durable synthetic weave over a rust-proof frame, so there’s no need to worry about damaging effects from sun or rain. The round table has a tempered glass top that’s easy to wipe clean. Comfy armchairs with plush cushions covered in an all-weather fabric invite you to curl up with a favorite book. This versatile outdoor bistro set looks at home indoors, too.
Garden Oasis’ Wrought Iron Bistro Set is proportioned beautifully for a small patio or balcony. Enjoy a meal al fresco or relax at day’s end with a glass of wine, and never worry about the weather. The round tabletop is a steel-mesh surface, and the cushions are covered with weather-resistant polyester. The set’s powder-coated finish will protect it from scratches and chips, too, so it stays looking good season after season.
Great for a beach house or to capture a beach-like feeling at home is the Palmer Bistro Set, also by Garden Oasis. It comes with a table and two strap swivel rocker chairs. The steel frame’s powder-coated finish is rust- and scratch-resistant. Applying some clear liquid car wax to the frame will protect the set against UV rays and salty sea air.
