Contemporary Beach House Dining
With summer on its way, more and more of us will be spending time at the beach house, crib or bach, and the weekend getaway spot will become more and more like a home the nearer we get to Christmas. We love the look of an unabashedly contemporary beach house, and have a wide selection of beautiful, all-weather beach house furniture with which to dress it in true modern style. Modern coastal design is a fresh, simplified take on traditional coastal décor, beach house dining, and many of our pieces are a mix of style and substance that you’ll treasure for years to come. The best way to encourage use of your modern beach house is to create beautiful and comfortable spaces that you’ll want to sit back, relax and enjoy spending time in, as well as a place to welcome family and friends for alfresco dining day and night. Read on for some of our suggestions to make the entertaining area in your contemporary home by the beach feel just like home.
Beach House Dining
An all-weather dining table for al fresco entertaining in style is a must in any modern beach house. If your aesthetic is contemporary cool, our gorgeous Tapered Raw Concrete Table and Two Bench set is the dream. Raw Concrete adds dimension and character to any space inside or out, and this handsome set includes a 2.5 metre Raw Concrete Tapered Table with matching benches, for a marvellously modern look. Made of a composite concrete mixed with resin, the pieces are not as heavy as 100 percent concrete and they maintain their shape and form with aplomb. Alternatively, try the benches with one of our recycled teak tables for a fabulous contrast in texture.
If you’re planning a more formal-style meal at your holiday home but still want to take things outdoors, the Capri Extension Table and Twelve Como Chairs Set is the ideal choice. It includes the largest dining table available in our range of stunning teak tables, and being dignified, accomplished and multi-functional; it’s the most versatile and popular set we have on offer. The Capri Extension Table and Twelve Como Chairs Set includes our fabulous, ergonomic Como Chairs, with two arms and ten sides. The central focus is the amazing Capri Oval Double Extension Table, which extends from an astonishing 86” to 101” to 117” thanks to its unique butterfly extension design. In addition, the non-movable centre piece allows you to put an umbrella in when shade is required, and doesn’t fold away when the table is not extended.
Or Rustic Beach House Style
Or, if rustic and intimate is more your beach house style, the Hunter Reclaimed Teak Dining Table is a beautiful choice for alfresco fun in the sun. Made from sturdy reclaimed teak wood, it looks beautiful and is strong as well. The teak is smoothed out and beautifully crafted, and if left unfinished will age over time to a soft, silvery hue. We love the character and rustic charm of teak as it evolves, and the imperfections and grain of the wood are the things that make this table so unique and stunning.
Alfresco fun in the Sun
If your beach house is enjoyed by several generations at once, you made need some extra space in which to entertain. For a lovely, family-friendly setting, enjoy dining outdoors with ten guests around our famous 300cm reclaimed teak Trestle Dining Table, 290cm Trestle Bench and Gilbert wicker dining chairs. The look and feel is both elegant and casual and most importantly, warm and inviting. Your guests will feel comfortable and relaxed, and the universal style means the table can be combined with so many of our other dining chairs.
This allows you to have your own unique beach house dining look whether it includes wicker, Batyline®, aluminium or concrete. With that in mind, if you like your outdoor setting already mixed and matched, our Trestle Table and Edge Chairs Outdoor Dining Set is a stunning option. For this outdoor dining set we paired our famous outdoor Trestle Dining Table in reclaimed teak with black Edge outdoor dining side chairs. It is a perfect example of mixing and matching materials that are very different, but complement each other beautifully for the dream, modern beachside setting.
