Originally, French bistro chairs were mass produced using bentwood. In the mid 1800s, Thonet developed a process that lathed raw wood into thick circular dowels and steam bent them into the components to mass produce practical chairs by the thousands. They look like bamboo and many people think they are bamboo, but Thonet made his iconic chairs out of ash or beech wood painted to look like bamboo.
Some furniture is made out of bamboo or rattan. But not these bentwood chairs. These chairs were inexpensive, durable and affordable. They were mass-produced for restaurants and hotels, made to look like more expensive bamboo, rattan or cane.
With subtle colors, hand-woven wicker, and classic curvaceous structures, our French Bistro seating brings the streets of Paris to your outdoor space.
The aluminum frame is lightweight and stable with a powder-coated distressed finish.

The frame is wrapped to look like rattan furniture popular for outdoor seating all over the world.
