With its statement-making concrete base and sleek glass top, it's no wonder this bistro table keeps selling out.

Eucalyptus wood is a great material choice for outdoor furniture, and we love how it looks in this round bistro table. The table folds down flat for when you need to bring it inside or put it away in storage, and because of the curved design of its legs, this table can stand up on its own when its not in use. Great for backyards, patios, balconies, or rooftops.

We love this mosaic round bistro table because it looks great both indoors and outdoors. The ceramic tile pattern on the top complements any decor style and resists staining and breaking.

This vintage industrial bistro table is a statement-maker, and since it has an adjustable height, it will work with whatever chairs or stools you already have. We also appreciate that the table can swivel around 360 degrees, since that adds more flexibility when you're using it.
