Outdoor bistro sets are masterful space-savers. If you don’t have a the room for a full patio set or outdoor dining table — or if you’re just looking to add seating to an outdoor nook — a 3-piece bistro set is a great way to go. They’re more affordable than larger sets, and add both function and flair to your porch, balcony, or den.
But because of their compact size, bistro chairs aren’t always the most comfortable. Many are ornate and made of iron, which look beautiful, but aren’t the best for cozying up with a cup of coffee and a good romance novel. So when we found these cushioned bistro sets that combine comfort and style (and realized that they’re on sale right now!) we had to share.
Scroll down for three outdoor bistro sets that will give outdoor sofas a run for their money.
