Add a Charming Coffee Table to Your Patio Space

September 21, 2021

When it comes to furnishing your dream outdoor living area, buying a coffee table might not be first on your list. Perhaps you are more focused on finding the right sectional for your space, or the most comfortable relaxing chair. But in fact, your choice of coffee table is often the anchor in the room — especially in grander living spaces where a great piece can really bring everything together.

The best coffee table for you is one that meets your needs in regard to budget, look and function. To help you get started, we’ve rounded up some of our favourite coffee tables in different styles currently on offer at Design Warehouse. Whether you’re a fan of teak, wicker, aluminium or even ceramic outdoor furniture, rest assured we have the perfect coffee table to fit your al fresco brief.

Sutherland Reclaimed Teak Coffee Table

Sutherland collection featuring the Sutherland Reclaimed Teak Coffee Table

Teak coffee tables

A fabulous example of where design meets structural integrity, our Sutherland Outdoor Teak Coffee Tables (above) are beautiful pieces to add a sense of warmth and solidity to your space.

With incredible aged teak taking centre stage for these beautiful pieces, the character of the wood is further illuminated by excellent craftsmanship. Large slats of wood form a table top with edges that have been delicately curved, while slender lengths of wood are rounded off to support the top, in a base that is both stylish and airy. Sitting easily indoors or out, the amazing Sutherland Outdoor Teak Coffee Tables are available in two sizes that can effortlessly fit any space. Reclaimed teak is teak wood that has been used previously, but is re-purposed into gorgeous timber with a rustic feel and a lot of character. Often teak is reclaimed from flooring, large structural timbers and commercial buildings, which means that the reclaimed wood is taken from larger format pieces that allow for very nice finished product. Because the teak wood that we use in our reclaimed furniture is originally from old growth trees in Central Java, you can rest assured that the wood is top quality. Teak wood in general is capable of lasting more than a century, ageing graciously while remaining impervious to all of the normal culprits of wood degradation.

Or if you’re looking for a wood coffee table that doubles as a piece of art, our Puzzle Reclaimed Teak Coffee Tables are a joy to behold. Made from beautiful uniform (but uniquely textured) blocks of teak wood formed into a brickwork type pattern with spaces in between, they are a delightful play on depth and never fail to impress. The resulting puzzle-like structure offers a solid feel, and these beauties – available in two sizes – are capable of outdoor full-time use as a beautiful accessory piece or main coffee table.

Crete Low Ceramic Coffee Table

Ceramic coffee tables

Ceramic is considered a highly durable material that is ideal for all year round use outdoors. Made from natural materials, our ceramic tabletops create tone and texture variations that make each piece unique and can differ from table to table. Ceramic tabletops are UV and heat resistant, resistant to water absorption, and resistant to most outdoor elements, making them a very valuable asset for any al fresco living space.

Our low Crete Coffee Table in charcoal (right) is one of the most fabulous, modern and stylish tables we have. It features a solid, plank-like framework of delicately powder coated aluminium, decked out with a superb table top made from ceramic with a concrete look that further elevates the glamour factor. Supremely elegant, this lower version of the Crete is perfect for deep seating, where you want to embrace dining al fresco or and chilled drinks with friends as the sun sets. Situate the Crete Low Table nestled into an outdoor sectional or indoors in any setting – this piece is extraordinarily flexible as well as chic.

Wicker Coffee Tables

Tom Outdoor Wicker Coffee Table in Natural

A standout feature in envy-inducing Instagram photos and with a design history all its own, wicker furniture has come a long way since the sixties and seventies patio set. We love the look of a wicker coffee table, and ours are beautiful as well as incredibly durable no matter what you throw at them.

Perfectly proportioned, the Tom Outdoor Wicker Table (right) in Natural colour is an ideal piece for lifting your outdoor area with its stunning silhouette and carefully chosen materials. A classic hourglass shape with a sharpened edge, the Tom is a beautiful looking piece that offers so much versatility. Place it with some low slung aluminium and rope relaxing chairs for a delightfully louche, minimal feel, or nestle in a couple of the Tom Tables to your teak deep seating unit and enjoy a warmth of texture and a style all your own. Made from only the best all weather wicker, the Tom Outdoor Wicker Table is totally unique and yet classic enough to fit into any setting.

If contemporary cool is more your style, the Kane Drum Coffee Table is a beautiful wicker coffee table built on a lightweight but solid powder-coated aluminium frame. Made from synthetic outdoor wicker and fully outdoor capable, the Kane is a fantastic addition to any space. Comprised of an open, thick cane-like synthetic outdoor weave coupled with a tight tabletop, the lightweight build of the Kane makes it an easy piece to reposition for frequent changes or when extra tables are needed. The simple style is complementary to so many other materials and styles of outdoor furniture, making the Kane a must in any space
