French Bistro Style Brought Home

Home kitchens and dining areas can incorporate the feeling of a French bistro through furnishings, layout, and materials. Let's take a look at a few inspirations:

FIRST ROW:
1 The ladder, bright natural light, and casual seating in this kitchen give it a little of that bustling feeling of a busy French bistro.
2 A breakfast area by with cafe-style seating.
3 They're pricey, but gorgeous! The Luxembourg by Maison Gatti.
4 Bentwood vintage mixed with open industrial no-nonsense.
5 Light and bright bistro chairs with a rustic dining table in an open kitchen.
