French Bistro Chairs

The words “French bistro” evoke visions of sophisticated diners enjoying a glass of wine or a hot beverage while watching passersby on historic cobbled streets. Add a touch of ambiance from the City of Light to your everyday life. French bistro chairs from Viesso complement any patio, garden, home, office or restaurant.

French Style Decor - A Little Bistro Background

While there are several theories behind the origin of the word “bistro,” the most credible one traces it back to the late 1800s. This is when Parisians first started using the word as slang for small restaurants or wine shops, according to the Online Etymology Dictionary. More than 100 years later, bistros still serve as a place where you can get a bite to eat while enjoying a casual atmosphere.

Outdoor French Bistro Chairs

Don’t go out and spend money when you can enjoy an elegant meal without a reservation. Add a small table and a couple of French bistro chairs to any room or outdoor space for an attractive place to relax. For instance, kitchen nooks offer the perfect spot to enjoy Sunday brunch. Furnish your bedroom balcony with a table for two to create an intimate space perfect for romantic dinners. If you prefer to spend your free time outdoors, design a seating area on your deck. Use it to enjoy the fruits of your gardening skills or grab a little alone time with a favorite book, a cup of tea and a plate of cookies.

Bistro Chairs for Every Style

Select a wrought-iron table and chairs if you prefer the classic French bistro look. However, don’t rule out French bistro chairs if you prefer more modern or streamlined designs over old world charm. At Viesso, we also offer wooden and steel bistro chairs in a vibrant palette of colors. The classic look blends well with more colorful surroundings, while selecting chairs with a bold pop of color creates an exciting focal point for rooms decorated in neutral shades. Pick a rustic-looking bistro chair for your favorite mountain retreat or beach house. Don’t restrict yourself to small bistro tables if you love to host a bunch of parties and family gatherings. Bistro chairs also complement much larger wooden or metal tables. In addition to regular bistro chairs, we also offer taller chairs and stools if you prefer a little more height to create a pub-like look.

Cream of the Crop

Get the industry’s top products, even if they aren’t made by Viesso. Our company continually searches the marketplace to find unique modern furniture that meets our high standards. In addition to an exclusive line of furniture made in the United States, Viesso also carries top-quality brands from companies that share the same modern outlook. For instance, we offer French bistro chairs from Fermob. This company, which has been in business for more than two decades, is based outside Lyon, France. Fermob prides itself on offering practical pieces that are as comfortable as they are cheerful. You’ll also find products from ModLoft, Hella Jongerius, sohoConcept, Yerra, Shine Labs, Design House Stockholm, DeWulf, Stelton, Paul Smith, Muuto and Ovopur, as well as many others.

Environmentally Friendly Pieces

Viesso offers eco-friendly furniture made from natural or recycled materials. If our company uses wood that isn’t locally sourced, it’s certified by the Forest Stewardship Council, or FSC. Products with the FSC label can be tracked back to their original sources to ensure responsible use of timber and forests. Viesso also carries furniture from other companies focused on the environment. From start to finished product, feel secure knowing our green furniture includes recyclable materials, as well as paint that doesn’t release toxic chemicals into the air. Fermob, for example, uses solvent-free powder paints from DuPont on its steel bistro chairs. During manufacturing, Fermob also sorts and recycles all waste.

Versatility of Bistro Chairs

Select a set of chairs and matching table if you prefer a timeless, yet aesthetically pleasing look. Mix and match your chairs and table for a more eclectic style. From shabby chic and French country to art deco and Southwestern, our French bistro chairs work well with any type of decor. A bistro table and chairs are a perfect fit for small apartments or tiny kitchens. They also work well in large spaces, creating a cozy spot that makes a big room or green space feel more welcoming. Since our French bistro chairs fold up for storage, you can easily take them with you to the beach, outdoor concerts, barbecues or tailgating events.

Your Own Custom Creations

Design furniture that meets your specific needs. Take advantage of different options while shopping with Viesso, or provide your own drawings, designs, ideas or renderings to create one-of-a-kind furniture. Once you’ve made your selections and placed your ordered, your furniture will be crafted in Los Angeles. Viesso will ship your order in just three weeks.

Whimsical Colors For Your French Bistro Chair

Most patio furniture often is limited to such neutral colors as black, white and taupe. Viesso, however, carries French bistro chairs in every color of the rainbow, from fuchsia and chili to lemon and poppy.

Comfortable French Bistro Seating

Viesso’s French bistro chairs are designed with your comfort in mind. If you prefer a little extra padding, however, you can choose from a wide variety of fabrics, colors and designs. If you don’t find exactly what you want after browsing our company’s selection of accent pillows, design your own. Viesso’s collection of fabrics includes hundreds of options, including such fabrics as linen, suede, hemp, boucle, cotton, leather, Knoll Velvet mohair and alpaca herringbone. Order as many as 10 free fabric samples so you can compare your top picks at home.

Advice from the Experts

If you have trouble deciding which piece of furniture suits your needs, you can request an in-home consultation if you live in Los Angeles County. While our company isn’t an interior design firm, our employees are experts when it comes to Viesso’s products. We also have interior design partners who can visit your business or home. After getting a first-hand look at your current decor and a discussion about your vision for the space, your consultant can ensure you find exactly what you need.

Visit Our Showroom

Even if you live outside the Los Angeles area, Viesso can help you. Provide our company with photos, as well as details about your preferences and your goals for the space. Your personal consultant will help you pick out furniture in colors, sizes and models that will bring your vision to life. The consultation costs $99, as of December 2011, but Viesso will credit it toward your order. Call (877) 8-VIESSO or email info@viesso.com for more details about this service. If you plan to buy more than a couple of French bistro chairs, you may prefer to fly out to Los Angeles to visit our Santa Monica showroom. As long as you spend $4,000 or more with us before taxes and delivery fees, Viesso will discount as much as $400 from your order to help cover the cost of your airfare.

Wear and Tear

Our durable bistro chairs come with a one- to three-year guarantee, depending on the model. Fermob paints its bistro chairs with anti-UV paint, which is electrostatically deposited on the metal and baked like the paint on automobiles. Each outdoor-friendly chair undergoes multiple rust-proofing stages to ensure a long-lasting product at a surprisingly inexpensive price.
