Kitchen Table Sets Under $800
These stylish, budget-conscious picks are a far cry from the teeny, wobbly bistro sets of yore. (Teeny, wobbly bistro sets, please try harder.)
This two-tone, cottage-style arrangement is sold as a four-piece set (that is, a table, a bench and a pair of chairs), but you can add an extra pair of chairs for $135 more. (If you want to throw in that handsome server in the background, in turn, it's $294.)

This quintet is perfect for hosts in city apartments: Pull out these sleek, minimalist stools and you've got a brunch venue for four (minus the hour-long sidewalk queue). When space is at a premium, tuck them back under the angular table and you'll have ample room for cleanup.
BUY IT: Urban Outfitters, $699
Inspired by the iconic silhouette developed at Parsons School in the '30s, this solid-hardwood stalwart is ready for the spotlight in your breakfast nook. Pair it with sturdy, full-size stools that offer plenty of lumbar support.
