High & Low: Folding Bistro Chairs

High & Low: Folding Bistro Chairs

It's dinner party season right now, so we thought we'd revisit one of our favorite space savers. Folding chairs come in handy when you live in a small apartment but you want to be able to host dinner for 10. One of our favorite models is the classic French bistro chair…

… which can be used indoors or outside. Its sleek, slatted design goes with modern or traditional decor. The one drawback is that these chairs aren't all comfortable, but adding a seat cushion helps a lot.
