Whether downsizing or simply wanting to fill a smaller kitchen nook, three-piece wicker dining sets are a space-saving solution when seating for one or two is all that is needed. While they may offer compact footprints, however, these ensembles are also generously sized for enjoyment throughout the day and evening. From a first cup of coffee in the morning through brunch and beyond the cocktail hour, they offer a certain intimate styling that makes them so popular for home and commercial settings.
Wicker is a natural choice for smaller dinette sets, and many of our select pieces are featured in solid rattan cane, which provides tropical overtones ranging from casual to formal and even colonial. In addition to rattan, today's woven pieces are also crafted from grasses that are tough, resilient and timelessly beautiful. Dark, medium and light finishes will also impact the character of three-piece rattan dining sets, taking them from island-inspired themes to cottage, condo and resort locales.
Bistro sets in rattan impart a certain charm popularized by the romantic visuals of European sidewalk dining. These are designed for indoor spaces, and they are full of personality without taking up space. Standard height dining chairs are paired with glass-topped tables that will be just as engaging in an open space as they are tucked into corners concealed by greenery. With many of our featured three-piece groupings, it is also possible to choose a glass top size as well as a round or square shape. These are timeless classics that are also versatile enough to complement traditional and modern decors. Decorative features include spindled insets at chair backs and shapely hourglass bases for the tables.
Counter height rattan dining sets with two chairs and a table remain popular choices as an in-between style for dining and entertaining. A cozier trio is also conducive to sharing the newspaper over breakfast or conversing over beverages in the afternoons and before dinner. Rattan frames are as decorative as they are sturdy, and the beauty of this natural plant species is amplified in finish choices that retain the cane's natural characteristics. These sets are also known as gathering height ensembles or honeymoon dinettes, and each has its own persona that will appeal to homeowners, apartment-dwellers and designers. For those who entertain frequently, pub table sets, three-piece bar height dining sets are easily integrated into larger settings, but they are equally welcome in home spaces and eat-in kitchen areas.
