French Bistro Garden Furniture

Today I’m looking at French bistro garden furniture. (I’m also looking out of the window and it’s starting to rain!) Never mind. Perhaps these garden lovelies from French company Fermob will bring out the sunshine. They can all be found online at The White Company

Now here’s a great place to start.  A folding table that is large enough to seat four people when needed yet plenty of room just for two, or even lots of space for me, my morning coffee and the newspapers.

I could probably spend a lot of time in the garden if this chair was waiting for me. Just hanging around not doing very much. Mind you finding a suitable branch or beam to hang it from might be a bit more of a challenge.

Folding bistro chairs

How about being able to hang up your bistro chairs when not in use? Love the idea but as much as I like it, I know that I wouldn’t be able to balance the books with a plant on top. Not to worry these chairs fold up anyway so probably a much easier way to store.

Fermob are French master craftsmen of boutique garden furniture. The table and chairs have a matt powder coating with anti-corrosion treatments to protect against scratching and rusting – French bistro garden furniture that’s very pleasing to the eye.

Trugs, trays, baskets and crates

Trugs, trays, baskets and crates all have so many uses in the home. They help to keep things neat and tidy, are a good place to store items and usually make things easier to find. Sometimes they are there just for  purely decorative purposes. These ten items that I have chosen from will hopefully give you some ideas for your home.

Gorgeous Grey French Provence Style Furniture


Not everything at the The White Company is white! Their Provence style furniture is painted in a beautiful grey that truly enhances the unique design and style of this lovely collection. I love the versatility of the armoire and wardrobe, the antique look of the lamp and the beautiful cane top and toe of the bed.

Provence armoire

The only problem that I have with the armoire is in which room to put it as it is so versatile. It would make a stunning linen cupboard especially if filled with pretty floral quilts, monogrammed white sheets, lacy pillowcases and plump spare pillows. On the other hand I love the way that it has been filled with hanging mugs, kitchen utensils, tea cloths and everyday china for kitchen or dining room as shown in the above photo. Either way why not leave the doors open to show everything off. Continue Reading
