To Dine For: 8 of the best Outdoor Tables

Beautiful furniture for alfresco feasts.

Who says you have to compromise on style when it comes to eating outdoors?

These stylish outdoor tables will add punch and pizzazz to your outdoor space, making the garden or terrace even more inviting for al fresco lunches and dinners – and they’re just as perfect for those morning coffees or afternoon Aperol Spritzes.

Just add a pretty garden parasol to protect you from the sun’s rays, if some shade is required.

As they’re all designed to withstand the unpredictable British weather there’s no need to banish these tables to the shed for the winter either. Although protecting them from heavy rain with a waterproof cover will ensure their longevity.

Why not create a laid-back Ibiza-style vibe with a hanging chair too. 

The materials on offer range from sturdy timber and hardy concrete to smart stainless steel and lightweight fibrestone (a clever composite that looks like natural stone but without its weight). There’s even a table (available in different sizes and with coordinating chairs) made from recycled ocean plastics (discarded fishing nets to be precise), which scores highly in both the style and sustainability stakes. Read the full story on the Ocean table here.

If space is limited, rather than a full sized dining table, go for one of the smaller options such as Petite Friture’s chic high table or the Bouroullec’s bijou Cone table – both offer designer credibility and stand out style without taking up too much room.

Give your garden or patio a boost with these concrete planters.

Peruse our edit, get your outdoor entertaining area in shape – and you can look forward to a summer of cool and carefree conviviality.
