The table base was bought in an Antique Market in the South East of England.... it's French. The top was a piece of white marble cut to fit. The chairs were bought online.... l don't remember where from. The planters were bought at an Antiques Auction.

The chairs were bought on ebay, the table base at an antique fair in France and the table top (under the cloth) is a piece of marble which was cut for the table base. The planters were bought at an antiques auction house.

Solid cast iron. Of course it does it's job properly........ assuming we are talking about people of normal weight for their height and age. l wouldn't be specifying products that are not suitable for purpose........ apart from my clients the Professional Indemnity Insurers wouldn't like it either!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Scheer & Co. added this to Balconies: Precious Rooms in the Sky
High walls provide privacy for this small urban terrace, but run the risk of appearing a bit institutional. Plants soften the space, enveloping the bistro table in a dose of nature that would not otherwise be present.
Laura Gaskill added this to Sell Your Home Fast: 21 Staging Tips
20. Stage the outdoors too. Even if your condo has only a teensy postage stamp–size balcony, play it up with a cute café table and chairs, a cheerful tablecloth and even a little tray of dishes or a vase of flowers. When people look at this scene, they won't be thinking "small," they will be thinking, "What a charming spot to have breakfast!"
Tiffany Carboni added this to Bring the Bistro to Your Kitchen
A 16th-floor apartment in London overlooking the River Thames is a good place for a European-bistro-like atmosphere. Planter boxes found at an antique auction frame the view. Solid cast iron chairs from eBay were made comfortable with the help of thick cream-colored cushions. The table base, from a French antiques fair, is topped with a piece of marble that's covered in a tablecloth that can be changed to fit the mood, season and time of day.
6. Set up a breakfast nook Wake up to a welcoming breakfast seating area. Romantic, bistro-style furniture can help soften brick walls and stark concrete floors. Add your personality to the space with a patterned tablecloth or colourful seat cushions.Be inspired by 9 charming breakfast spots
