Bistro & Tulip tables are great in small spaces…

When living in a cramped space, it’s often hard to find the room to sit a dining or kitchen table. Often times apartment kitchens are small or galley styled and may only have a dinette area verses a full dining room. So purchasing furniture that fits the space is imperative. You want to be able to move around the tables and still have something functional.

I wasn’t always sold on tulip tables or anything mid-century for that matter but over time I have come to appreciate how genius the design is. Having a pedastal base allows chairs to easily scoot in without bumping legs. A circular table frees up more space than a traditional rectangular shaped one and they fit perfectly in any small nook and cranny of a room.

So if you’re in a dorm or moved back to the parents home and need a bit of privacy when dining, consider a table of this style. Pairing it with one or four chairs really doesn’t matter if the circumferance of tabletop isn’t too big. Bistro tables typically look great in pairs of chairs or even solo dolo when placed in a corner. Add a light to create a cozy reading nook.

Love how they made use of this space above. This is how you make every square inch count…

Design Within Reach has pricier versions with marble tops but Ikea has an inexpensive all white one which can easily be painted a color of choice. I especially like the glass and chrome bistro table by Alan Ward Furniture. It would look fab paired with acrylic bar stools and a perfect modern spot for a cup of coffee. See more dining sets here.
