Paris On My Mind: Bistro Chairs

On a trip to Paris years ago, I fondly recall loving the bistro chairs that flooded all the street cafès. They honestly aren't the most comfortable, in my opinion, but like fashion, trodding down the road of chic often means forsaking comfort. And it couldn't be more worth it when it comes to these chairs.

They've been highlighted in a slew of shelter magazines, as seen above in Domino's feature on Katie Lee's home a few years back, and rightfully so. I'm partial to the armless versions in colors like green, blue and red, and see them being used in a small kitchen nook for having a quick breakfast or lunch. Here's a website that carries a bunch of bistro chairs, all for under $300.
