Outdoor bistro tables and outdoor café tables refer to small, generally round tables suitable for styling with up to two dining chairs or as stand-alone furnishings. These tables measure between 24" and up to 38", and generally feature round tops, though they can also have square tops. Ideal for use in compact settings, outdoor style bistro tables function well in both residential and commercial settings, and generally convey a relaxed, informal aesthetic. Available in a multitude of popular materials and styles ranging from traditional to modern, bistro tables are easy to integrate into any existing patio aesthetic. PatioLiving carries a varied selection of outdoor style bistro tables from brands including Woodard and Meadowcraft.
Benefits of Outdoor Bistro Tables
Patio bistro tables provide a smaller alternative to traditional dining table options. Many models feature intricate design details as well as many stunning finish options to choose from. A patio bistro table generally features three or more base legs, or a single base support rod. Materials used in crafting patio bistro tables include cast aluminum, wrought iron, steel, teak, and others. Wrought iron tables generally feature stylistic curves and mesh tops for a classic patio or garden look. A popular outdoor table material, wrought iron selections are extremely durable and powder-coated to prevent rust. Cast aluminum bistro tables typically feature more intricate detail, such as metal base patterns and hooker feet. These patio bistro tables are resilient to damage from natural elements, and also lightweight, making them easy to move and rearrange with minimal effort. Select bistro tables feature functionality elements including adjustable frames and center umbrella holes. For a more decorative aesthetic, an outdoor style bistro table can also have artisan-style top made from glass or mosaic stone.
Decorating with Outdoor Bistro Tables
Patio bistro tables create an ambiance of relaxed charm, and rustic refinement. Evocative of Parisian cafes or Tuscan terraces, bistro tables carry distinct elements of European heritage. An outdoor bistro table is well-suited for numerous outdoor settings, both commercial and private, such as quaint or romantic restaurants, coffee shops, balconies, porches, and other compact living spaces. Generally styled with two coordinating dining chairs, bistro tables are ideal for intimate groups or private conversations. In private residences, patio bistro sets create an ideal outdoor place for taking your morning cup of coffee or reading the newspaper. For added comfort, an outdoor bistro table can be accessorized with patio umbrellas or chair cushions. Bistro styles can also serve as a supplementary table surface in any outdoor setting where a single may not be sufficient to accommodate your group or event.
