Chic Cafe Chairs

I am also looking for a cafe table and chairs for a small kitchen in one of my projects .  I would really love to be able to use these French cafe chairs but I’m not sure they will fit.  The most famous of them come from TK Collections which supplies chairs to almost all the cafes in Paris including a few I ate in during my last trip. I love the almost endless combination of colors and weaves.  As you can see from these examples, they add a cheerful pop of color to kitchens and can withstand a lot of wear and tear.  Probably why they the French have loved them for so long.  Bon Appétit!

    Hi Heather, Not only the chairs are timeless and perfect, but also the steel bistro and wine tables. (Did you happen to notice the white standard poodle? Also perfect (Jones is a bit more handsome) Thanks. Mary

    Thank you so much for this post. I wanted these cafe chairs for my garden room after visiting Paris, but I was having trouble locating a source. Thank you, thank you. Oh by the way, I can’t believe you have a photo of me enjoying a break from shopping. (‘Unknown’). That women next to me just would not stop starring at my shoes.

    What a great post and resource. If Les Deux Magot + Café de Flore buy TK Collections, they must be great! Wonderful photos from so many great decorators. Lovely!
