Café Chairs

There seems to be an infinite variety of chairs in Paris cafés. For a while, both in Paris and out here in the country, I noticed the traditional chairs being systematically replaced with the one-piece molded plastic kind. Those seemed more suited for backyard patios than for chic cafés.

Thankfully, however, the nicer looking woven chairs are coming back, at least in Paris. Of course, in some places they never left, but it's nice to see fewer of the plastic patio chairs and more of these:

A café on the rue Montorgueil.

On the Grands Boulevards.
There are, of course, many more, but you'll have to go to Paris to see them!

  1. I love these little details about Paris. I read an article somewhere saying that it was all the rage in Paris, now, to hang out in the typical, run-down Parisian cafés rather than the upscale places.


Tell me what you think!
