French Bistro Cafe Chairs
These chairs are part of Sika-Design's Affaire collection representing a unique selection of charming bistro furniture inspired by Sika-Design's sketches from the 1950s chairs seen everywhere in Paris.
If you choose our chairs, you are choosing authentic designer items that will add a touch of elegance and sophistication to your home, cafe and restaurants!
French Bistro Chairs
French people love spending time in the open air, sitting at the bistro tables lining the boulevards of Paris throughout the year.
These boulevards were created by Baron Haussmann's urbanization plan, which allowed for wider streets and the addition of pedestrian sidewalks.
This plan made for the ideal setting for outdoor bistro cafes and restaurants.
Following this event, Rattan woven chairs, called bistro chairs, became immediately very popular. The main feature of the bistro chairs is the beautiful weaves.
Initially, they were made of rattan, but today, they are also made of other fibers like AluRattan, a strong aluminum frame mounted with a thick layer of fiber.

Materials & Manteinance
We utilize two kinds of premium Rattan materials, Tohiti and Manau, which are solid and not hollow bamboo.
Rattan is an exceptionally durable natural material that can last for many generations with proper maintenance.
It is best suited for indoor or covered use, as exposure to rain may cause it to turn grey and reduce its durability.
Rattan requires no maintenance.
However, if needed, it can be wiped with a lightly dampened cloth.
Our Alu-Affair Collection features Alu-Rattan, an aluminum material designed to mimic the look of Rattan with its exceptional molding capabilities.
This material is powder-coated, resulting in a sleek finish and vibrant color.
Our furniture is ideal for outdoor use year-round, as it is easy to clean and requires no maintenance.
Wash with water mixed with mild soap and remove stains with a sponge or medium brush.
In our Affair Collection, we use ArtFiber in combination with Rattan. ArtFiber is made of hard-wearing polyethylene that is dyed and can withstand both high temperatures and UV rays.
When woven, ArtFiber is flexible and provides optimal comfort.
It also has a strong structure that can maintain its shape for several years.
ArtFiber requires no maintenance. It can be washed with a damp cloth if needed.
These Chairs Are Perfect For Brightening up Your spaces At Home
Chairs crafted for the indoors use high-quality Malacca cane rattan and an ArtFibre™ weave for the seat and bindings.
The rattan's natural bending techniques lend character and authenticity to each chair, visible in its marks, while ensuring durability and comfort.
Enjoy Designer Chairs For Your Garden
Chairs crafted for the outdoors use an AluRattan™ lightweight aluminum frame with a powder-coated finish.
Woven in a playful contrasting pattern, the two-toned ArtFibre™ polyethylene wicker lends strength and flexibility to the chair.
These chairs, designed for outdoor use in cafes and restaurants, are equally suitable for dining alfresco at home on the terrace.
