French Bistro Chairs & Decor Inspiration

French Bistro Chairs & Decor Inspiration is on the agenda today. If you research the topic, you’ll find a bunch of articles mentioning how these chairs are ‘on trend’ or ‘still trending.’ Bistro is a trend? Seriously?

While in France, I strolled by more Parisian bistros than I can say. However, I did not do much people watching from the bistro chair since I was on the move to see architecture, objects, and shop windows (and was less interested in fashionable clothes and peeps).

Not sure I ever shared this selfie. I snapped it in our bathroom at the Park Hyatt Place Vendome…and yes, there is a window seat, amazing windows opening onto a magnificent courtyard, gossamer-like silk window ‘coverings’, and spacious areas for primping and preening in this luxurious space!
