When entertaining space is tight, you need stylish furniture pieces that do double duty. This Barrel Stave Bistro Table from NapaStyle with arched legs made from genuine barrel staves fits the bill. The handmade table includes two shelves for storage of glasses and wine bottles, with a smooth pine top for rustic dining.
Metal garden chairs and a bistro table topped with Carrara marble give this dining nook the feel of a Paris cafe. Roman shades in a graphic, green and white lattice print tie in with the green fabric on the chair seats, bringing the outdoors in.
This small outdoor patio is located just adjacent to the home's main patio. Flat-topped bench rock boulders were cut into paver stones in various gray hues for the patio floor. Black wrought iron chairs with red and white striped cushions are positioned on either side of a bistro table, and multiple perennial plantings surround the seating area.
After a leisurely game of pool, the bachelor and a guest can retreat to this sleek bistro table. A custom bottle opener and expansive wine rack keep drinks within reach, while a silver sunburst mirror adds a touch of glamour to the walls.
You don’t need a lot of space to create a multifunctional outdoor living area. Here, designer Lisa Aiken packed a pair of lounge chairs with quick-dry seats, and a high-top bistro table with stool seating for four onto a compact rooftop terrace. “The high table lets diners overlook the beach,” says Aiken.
