Outdoor Patio Dining Furniture
Enjoy al fresco dining with outdoor patio dining furniture. Create cozy nooks in gardens and on balconies with small-scale tables, including cafe and pub styles. To accommodate larger dinner parties, look for extension dining tables and stackable outdoor chairs. Add weather-resistant outdoor cushions that resist fading due to sun and wind exposure. For a rustic look, find outdoor patio dining furniture made of natural materials, such as teak.
Enjoy a midday picnic or an evening dinner alfresco with patio dining furniture in a range of sizes and styles, all designed with your comfort in mind. First take into account table size and the number of guests you hope to seat. For a classic setup, choose a table with a traditional long rectangular shape as your patio centerpiece. For balconies or decks with high railings, consider a high table. A high table can seat up to four, and its tall design allows those seated around is to enjoy the view over the patio railing. For smaller outdoor areas, consider a round drop-leaf dining table. Its circular shape keeps the space looking airy and open, while the foldable sides allows you ultimate size customizability.
Finish the space with a set of coordinating chairs. For a casual update on the refined, traditional dining chair, look for a frame with the classic high back and slightly flared legs that lend a relaxed feel to the seat. If you have a high patio table, choose a set of outdoor counter stools, which are the perfect height to tuck snugly into it. Pay careful attention to your choice of material—look for durability, comfort and for a color that coordinates with your table and possibly your lounge furniture as well. Aluminum frames with black powdercoat finishes are weather-resistant and look modern. A stainless steel frame upholstered with synthetic mesh is equally cool and contemporary in a range of color options. If you prefer a natural, rustic look in your garden, choose FSC-certified teak, an environmentally-friendly material that makes a statement with its bold unfinished grain and unique character of the wood. Whatever your chair, bench or stool choice, outfit your patio dining furniture with durable, mildew- and UV-resistant acrylic Sunbrella cushions, available in a rainbow of hues.
