This is not your grandmother's bistro set.
The funky spiral motifs on VivaTerra's Provence Garden Furniture are eye-catching. And although the table and chairs look like sculpture, these seats are described as actually being ergonomically comfortable -- something that can't be said for some bistro chairs.
$198 for a chair or table; $569 for a set of two chairs and a table, here.
(You can feel good about where your money goes, too: VivaTerra says, "Made under the auspices of a humanitarian agency in the mountains of Honduras by highly skilled crafts people, this metalwork brings income to villages in a country where jobs are precious.")
