Frequently Asked Questions
A bistro set is a collection of furniture typically consisting of a small table and two chairs in a round or oval shape. They are usually foldable or stackable for easy storage when not in use and are made in a wide variety of materials such as iron, cast iron, mosaic, rattan, and wood. Simplicity and versatility make this furniture an ideal seating solution for indoor or outdoor areas where space may be limited. Recreate that rustic cafe feel in your own home with a bistro set from Utopia.
Bistro furniture usually refers to chairs and tables that are typically used in small cafes and restaurants. Think al-fresco Parisian cafe culture where you can enjoy the afternoons sipping the finest blends and watching the world go by. These neat furniture sets make a key addition to the patio or balcony of any Aussie home.
Bistro chairs are small flexible chairs often found in cafes, restaurants, outdoor seating areas and now in residential homes. They are designed to save space and add a unique aesthetic to any home garden, patio or balcony. Bistro chairs vary in height and can be manufactured using a range of materials. Many feature durable steel or wood while others are made from high-quality cast aluminium that is proven to be weather-resistant and strong. Depending on your style preference, you’ll find ceramic bistro chairs that ooze Mediterranean charm or teak hardwood sets that offer endless appeal.
This really depends on your lifestyle and what you plan to use your outdoor furniture for. Usually, a bistro counter table with a height of 86 to 91cm is best paired with 60 to 66 cm height bistro chairs. Bistro sets can be purchased to suit those wishing to dine outdoors or, for more informal gatherings, bar height bistro sets can really compliment your terrace or garden area.
Traditionally, bistro tables are sized to cater for two people. They’re usually relatively small in size, making them ideal for smaller outdoor spaces like balconies. If you’re wanting to accommodate the family or entertain guests, Utopia Home offers a range of stunning five-piece sets that come equipped with four bistro chairs and a table. These sets are available in a range of designs to suit your style preferences.
