Bistro tables are not just for dining. While these petite pedestal perches are perfect for enjoying a casual weekend brunch or intimate dinner date, they are also wonderful for adding character and function to a number of other rooms in the home. From foyer to patio, follow along as we share some of our favorite spaces and (of course) KKH bistro tables, offered in both traditional French and modern designs.
For the Foyer
First impressions matter, so creating a warm and welcoming foyer is essential for welcoming friends and family into your home. One of the simplest design solutions for the foyer is to introduce a bistro table. Besides adding depth and visual appeal to the entrance of your home, a bistro table provides a functional surface to display floral arrangements, family photographs, candles, and a cute box or tray to place your keys and mail.

For the Living Room
The unexpected choice can go a long way when it comes to interior design. Opt for a bistro table in the living room in place of a traditional side table to add height and visual interest to your room. A bistro table can work by the side of your sofa, topped with a decorative lamp and books, or place a bistro table next to a window flanked with chairs for a perfect spot to enjoy afternoon tea or a card game with guests. A bistro table is also a solve we use for large awkward corners or nooks in the living area. Some favorite bistro table decorating ideas include our elegant Regency Gold Fauna Marble Bistro Table. Or, if you’re looking for something more traditional, the Delon French Reclaimed Pine Bistro Table makes a lovely living room addition as well.
Of course, we can’t overlook the most obvious use for bistro tables. With a name that brings to mind quaint French dining, it only makes sense that bistro tables are most commonly used in the kitchen or dining room. With a footprint more compact than the traditional kitchen or dining table, bistro tables bring the luxury and function of an eat-in kitchen to even the smallest of spaces. If you have a breakfast nook, a bistro table is almost always a perfect design solution for the table and chairs. Who wouldn’t want to enjoy an omelet or wine and cheese cozied up to something as quaint and quintessentially Parisian as our Brigitte French Antique Bistro Table?
