There is much to be said for the industrial style café furniture universally found in restaurants, bistros, pubs, hotels and seaside or pavement seating that are the signature venues for such hardworking materials and craftsmanship. The world of hospitality is an ongoing adventure with ever-changing trends, yet the industrial style décor continues to hold its own withstanding the test of time.
It is easy to understand when the appearance of the bistro style immediately conveys a sense of comfort, of ambience, of atmosphere and hospitality. The very style of furniture draws the traffic in to your business.
An Easy Style that Endures
To say the industrial style is popular is an understatement. Adored by patrons and proprietors alike, the simple design is versatile whilst contributing to the durability that is necessary whether your customers are relaxed and easy-going or energetic and lively. A combination of wood, metal and plastic, their design is one that takes the punishment of a ding here or a bang there without detracting or ruining the look.
Their durability is a built-in feature with exposed nuts, bolts and rivets only adding to the charm. At the same time, this furniture is lightweight and easily stacked for storing making set up and tear down just as easy.
Born of Necessity Establishing Opportunity
The classic bistro style was born of the casual restaurant operating out of basement kitchens in the apartments of Paris. Renting rooms to patrons gave owners an advantage when they soon began to offer moderately priced food from simple menus. This added attraction provided additional revenue whilst creating a friendly, casual atmosphere that was complemented by traditional and contemporary furnishings.
One of the best ways to anchor return customers is to make a memory. One of the classic qualities of the industrial style café furnishings is the nostalgia that helps evoke this sense of calling one back to enjoy the nature of the welcoming atmosphere.
Choose the Bistro Sets to Boost Your Business, Enhance Your Intimate Space
You can keep the tradition alive and working in your favour with a range of café and bistro tables, chairs and bar stools. They are ideal for the home garden, the office, cafés, tearooms, pubs, restaurants, brasseries, bistros, food courts, coffee houses, catered events, indoor exhibitions, hotels and any other busy commercial environment where furniture gets a lot of use.

Choose the Look that Suits Your Desires
A trademark element of the industrial design style is the use of metal. Metal lends to the rugged nature of industrial furniture, and the more, the better.

Aluminium bistro tables and chairs are available in a variety of finishes from polished aluminium to rattan, durawood or ash.
