What is a Bistro or Cafe Table
With so many different types of modern dining room tables, it is easy to get lost and overwhelmed with all the choices. Modern bistro tables are small and intimate dining tables. Typically seating two comfortably and three or four with a bit of crowding, the bistro table set originated in French cafes and taverns, also called bistros. Bistros were unpretentious establishments that served wine along with simple meals. They were places where people would gather to enjoy dining, relax, and converse. The modern cafe tables represent these characteristics and are a splendid alternative to the standard dining table. Whether you want a square or round cafe table, these small tables offer a great daily dining area in a space-deprived apartment or as a chic occasional seating on the patio.
Why Should You Get a Bistro Table
The indoor bistro table is becoming more popular. More and more families are starting to move away from having a separate dining room to incorporating the dining experience into the kitchen. The modern bistro set creates a more intimate space with family and friends by allowing both the preparation and the dining to occur in the same room. In addition, tall cafe tables take away the height difference between those sitting and standing and encourages conversations while creating a more relaxed environment. Bistro tables and their accompanying stools or chairs lend themselves beautifully to smaller dining areas and adding a set to the living area, can create a casual pub-like atmosphere. If you are looking for a dining table for your apartment, a small dining area, or just want to bring that French Tavern feel to your dining experience with intimate ones, bistro tables are a great choice.
