Finding the perfect outdoor dining table or outdoor dining chairs to buy can revitalize the way you live and entertain in your home.
Not sure what style fits you best when shopping for an outdoor dining set? Don't worry; we have you covered. Check out a few tips below for inspiration when browsing and practical styling advice as you shop our curated line of outdoor dining styles.
Consider Your Outdoor Space Choosing Outdoor Dining Furniture
Outdoor spaces are as varied as the natural settings they adorn. Whether you are shopping to update a covered alfresco patio or looking to purchase pieces to transform a small corner of your garden, we love designs and styles that fit the setting while offering an elevating tone. From timeless classics like outdoor wicker dining chairs or a bistro table to a modernizing centerpiece like a concrete outdoor dining table, there are endless ways to reflect your surroundings while defining an aesthetic. It can be helpful to start by first defining the space itself.
Along with the usual constraints of designing a room—balancing attributes like size and use—an outdoor space presents unique opportunities to optimize it through thoughtful design. Asking questions like what time of day this spot gets sun or shade and from what direction can go a long way in styling your outdoor dining set. It also helps to picture the space in use. Is this table for evening entertaining, occasional open-air meals, quiet sunlit breakfasts? This exercise enables you to cover tons of details before you buy.
As with indoor dining furniture, measuring before making any final purchases is essential. You can even mark out the floor plan with painter's tape to get an idea of the layout and the flow of the furniture in place.
Find an Outdoor Dining Table with Outdoor Dining Chairs to Pair
Let your designer's eye explore once you start getting a feel for the space. The days of one-note outdoor dining furniture are far over. With fresh designs and modern constructions, we have a wide range of tables, chairs, and benches in all styles, so you can shop for ideal pieces for any look and project. Here are a few ideas to get started.
Create a Modern or Classic Patio
Whether your look is warmly traditional or stunningly modern, a neatly matched outdoor dining set is prime for transitional appeal. Think of a teak outdoor dining table paired with a clean set of teak chairs for a timeless, collected tone. One way to instantly inspire balance and unity is to shop a designer collection. Or, try creating a sleek monochromatic look for something more modern by pairing white or black outdoor dining chairs with a matching table for tonal impact.
Select a Unique Outdoor Dining Table
Our outdoor spaces can also be a great place to let our more daring design styles play. Try inspiring an industrial undertone with a concrete outdoor dining table or anchoring a luxurious look with something like our Doric Round Dining Table by Sarah Sherman Samuel. This round outdoor dining table pairs classic touches with a modern fiberstone construction to offer a distinctive element for functional bliss.
Mix and Match Patio Dining Furniture
Integrating different styles gives your outdoor dining table effortless appeal with a personal touch. Nothing suggests casual refinement like a carefully curated eclectic look. Try mixing and matching chair styles that offer different notes while still working harmoniously. The common thread can be anything from the color of the finish, leg design, or even the vintage style they are inspired by. Picture a selection of black outdoor dining chairs in a playful range of designs.
Refresh Your Outdoor Dining Area
If you are updating your patio or looking to fit a found piece into your decor, consider how new elements can speak to the old. For an elevated tone, try refinishing a beloved wooden table and buy some sculptural outdoor wicker dining chairs, like our Manila Indoor / Outdoor Dining Chair. Or pair some collected antique chairs with a small round outdoor dining table for a bistro-style escape.
Dress Your Outdoor Dining Set to the Space
Depending on the setting and style of your dining table, there are countless ways you can fold it into your decor. A versatile teak outdoor dining table like our Anson Indoor / Outdoor Dining Table decked with floral centerpieces and chic outdoor dining essentials offers a coastal summer feel. You can style the same table with a pared-down table set and an outdoor dining bench for poolside snacks and casual meals in a minimalist setting. Create a tablescape that speaks to the space while gently elevating the occasion.
Another way to set the tone and make your dining table an inviting focal point is with finishing touches to complete the look. Outdoor lighting can offer dynamic appeal to enchanted evening meals in a covered or semi-covered alfresco space. An outdoor rug can provide a soft, refining touch that augments the table as a natural centerpiece to gather around. Look for opportunities to fill the space with textures and elements that bring refinement outdoors.
Look for that perfect blend of practical ease and essential beauty that marks great design. These pieces should inspire lasting appeal for many meals to come from classic-looking tables to eye-catching outdoor dining chairs. However you decide to style it, remember that outdoor dining furniture allows you the flexibility to showcase your specific design aesthetic.
