My sister in law recently moved into a new apartment in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. It’s smaller than her last place, but the area is amazing and it has a small outside balcony. All New Yorker’s dream of an apartment with a bit of outdoor space while it’s not a backyard the balcony provides a dose of the outdoors with a great view and a fresh breeze. When she told me about it I knew she needed to get a bistro set to enjoy the space and have her morning coffee out there.
A bistro set is the perfect size for a balcony or a petite backyard and it would also be great for a small front porch area. Here is a round of my favorites:
No. 1 Agora 3 piece bistro set: Love the style of these chairs. I have something similar on my deck so perhaps I’m partial to them. Also love that they are metal and not painted. With my painted chairs I have gotten rust, but with all metal you will be in a much better situation.
No. 2 Meadow Decor bistro set: Ah! Isn’t the pink amazing? It’s also available in green, yellow and red and each color comes with a different design on the seat back. I love that the style is a bit old school, but the pop of color makes it very current.
No. 3 Sol Blue bistro set: This color blue makes me super happy. It also reminds me of something that would be at a chic cafe.
No. 4 Tarno bistro set: Love the mix of the wood and the metal and the $50 price point!!!! Enough said.
No. 5 Charleston bistro set: How adorable are those chairs? Love, love, love the kelly green seat cushions! They totally make it for me. Not a super fan of the table, but I would cover it with a navy and white striped tablecloth and call it a day!
No. 6 Follie bistro set: This is the set I ended up getting my SIL and I love it. I went with the navy version, which is no longer available, but this peacock blue is a beauty as well and currently on sale for $95. Love that both the table and chairs fold closed which makes for easy storage in the winter.
No. 7 Red bistro set: I will admit that I’m not a huge fan of red in design, but I do think it works perfectly in outdoor spaces. It always looks great with concrete, pavers, etc.
No. 8 Bamboo bistro set: I love a dose of bamboo. It always reminds me of Hollywood Regency or Palm Beach design and the fact that this set came in orange I was immediately sold! Also available in a rainbow of other colors.
Best part? All of them under $200!
