Living in an apartment has its perks such as indoor parking, less cleaning, no grass cutting or snow shoveling. One of the things I do miss however are those quiet summer evenings sitting on the patio with friends or family and enjoying the outdoors. What I have done to get close to that is set up a outdoor bistro set on my balcony alongside a few large potted plants. It may not be a deck or patio, but it is the next best thing.

High bistro sets are more commonly called pub sets or tavern sets. Indeed, it is uncommon to sit at a high table at a bistro. They usually are furnished with small round tables and chairs. Sitting at a high table is more like being at the bar, sitting on a stool.

Aside from height, the difference between a tall bistro set and a regular one is the fact that it comes with stools rather than chairs. This is fine if you are just having short meals at the table, but if you plan on spending long amounts of time at your bistro table, you may miss the comfort of a chair with a back rest.

One of the great things about a bistro table and chair set is that you can use it in so many places in and outside of the home. A nice touch for outside, especially if you have a stone walkway, is to utilize the natural setting to show off a mosaic tile bistro set. This beautiful complement to any outdoor environment is striking. Just beautiful!

One of the joys of living on your own for the first time is buying furniture that reflects your character and personality. Sometimes though, that furniture has to fit into smaller rooms, homes or apartments. If that is the case with you, simply look at buying furniture that doesn’t take up a lot of room. One of those items could be a small bistro table set that would have no problem fitting in nicely in a small kitchen or dining room area. Apart from the space you will save, you will also have a hip eating area.
