Outdoor bistro tables resemble those used in those outdoor eateries often seen in movies about France. They are usually a small table, suitable for a small meal for one or two people. For home use, they are an excellent choice for your patio or outdoor living space. Foldable bistro tables are excellent for garden or patio parties. The tables can be made from a variety of materials. Wood is the most common, but they can be metal or even stretched canvas. Rattan is also a popular material for bistro tables. They can be matched to your other patio furniture.
