BISTRO STYLE DINING TABLE
This quirky table started in the 1600’s in Paris with the arrival of their first bistro, Café Procope. These tables were originally designed with marble tops supported by an ornate metal base and were very small, just big enough for some beverages and a pastry. As the city developed, the cafes started serving patrons on their terraces, creating the image of the Parisian sidewalk cafes that we love to envision as the French culture.
