7 of the best bistro sets to buy now
The faintest whiff of summer sun and you'll find us out in the garden, sunnies on and chilled spritz in hand. And to sit at? One of these seven totally chic bistro sets, darling!
We love the olive colour of this set from MADE. Plus, the industrial-chic style feels urban and cool. It’s good for small spaces too, as the steel framework is designed to stack away neatly.
Work of heart
It might be a bit of an investment, but this Neptune set — inspired by Victorian cast iron garden furniture — feels timeless, rather than a whim of current trends. The tabletop is made from marble (always a classic), and the chair cushion covers are removable and machine-washable. God send.
This synthetic rattan table and chair set from Habitat can be left outdoors year-round, and tucks away when you don’t need it. Add in the fact that it’s dead stylish and totally affordable, and you’ve got a guaranteed garden win.
Bright and bold
Zhuzh up a darker corner of your garden with this John Lewis set, a brighter take on the classic foldable style. There are four colours to choose from, but we like this rather dramatically-named ‘flame’ shade.
Go contemporary with this comfy Rama bistro set, made of a synthetic open weave and durable metal legs. The relaxed shape of the chairs means they’re charmingly slouchy — perfect for kicking back with a cocktail.
Sleek and solid
Made from solid teak, these Tikamoon table and chairs are inspired by the workshops of the early 20th century. Don’t you just love the cool curve of the metal arms? Best of all, these could definitely double as inside furniture in the winter. Twice as nice.
Chair £299 each; Table £249
Pretty in pink
Doesn’t this Dunelm set just scream dainty finger sandwiches in a big floppy hat? We love the scalloping detail to the chairs, and the English rose colour. It’s also appealingly lightweight — so you can rearrange in different sunny garden spots as you wish, no man needed. Girl power!
