Riviera: French Bistro Chairs with a Twist

FRENCH BISTRO CHAIRS WITH A TWIST

No other design evokes the casual glamour of French café culture like the bistro chair. With their comfortable curved backs and woven seats, it’s no wonder they’ve inspired a tradition of lingering a little longer.

SHOP THE COLLECTION ›

If you’ve been coveting that classic bistro chair look yourself, take note. Our beloved collection of Riviera Chairs is bigger and better than ever before, with a fun mix of colors, patterns, and silhouettes, so you can find the style that’s right for you.

More than just dining room furniture.

A dining room chair one minute, a patio chair for impromptu guests the next, our Riviera Collection works well in so many settings.

RIVIERA CHAIRS ›

a gorgeously
crafted
rattan frame.

Riviera is just rich with design details we love. For starters, each beautiful, natural rattan frame is crafted by hand in a time-honored technique perfected by the French. In fact, the subtle organic markings on the chair’s frame are wonderful signs of authenticity, created by artisans stretching and bending the rattan into these lovely shapes.


it’s all about color, pattern, and texture.

In other words, it champions all the things that catch our eye and make a space look great. Notice how the side chairs feature more white in the weave than the armchairs? That artful variation in how the seats and backs are woven open up the design possibilities. We love the effect of mixing different patterns with different silhouettes – it’s elevated, eclectic, and unexpected.


family-friendly meets flair.

Looking for dining chairs that are stylish and child-friendly? Thanks to their forgiving material and sturdy yet lightweight construction, our Riviera Chairs are a breeze to clean, hard to stain, and easy to move, making them every bit as practical as they are a design lover’s dream.


we love
them in
the kitchen.

Who says café style can only come in the form of a dining chair? We’ve designed barstools and counter stools to take your bar or kitchen island to new heights. (Kitchen chairs never looked so good.)

Styling Tip:

Say yes to a sporty stripe! Different pattern pairings create an interesting mix.


it’s outdoor furniture that
looks good indoors.

With the same easy sophistication of the bistro chairs that inspired it, our Riviera Outdoor Chairs are not our grandmother’s patio furniture. Great in the sunroom, gorgeous on the deck, it’s outdoor furniture that’s worthy of a spot in the beach house or the poolhouse (the seats dry instantly when you wipe them down, keeping everything spic and span).

Better yet, a powdercoated aluminum frame means it withstands weather all year long. It stacks for easy storage, too.


The Art of Reinvention

We’re such big fans of the bistro look – as are so many of our customers – that we’ve evolved the collection to include everything from headboards to bar carts to dog beds. What will we we think of next?
