Get BBQ Season Ready for 2022
With summer and all of its associated opportunities for entertaining creeping into view, it’s the perfect time to start assembling a beautiful outdoor setting with entertaining a crowd and backyard BBQs in mind. We have a stellar range of outdoor dining tables, dining chairs, folding chairs and more to make your celebrations run smoothly, be it Christmas Day hosting, a significant birthday, or a casual BBQ with friends and family.
Design with a difference
If you’re planning a more formal meal but still want to take things al fresco, the Capri Extension Table and Twelve Como Chairs Set includes the largest dining table available in our range of stunning teak tables. Dignified and gloriously 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 to fit any gathering thanks to its unique butterfly extension design. In addition, the non-movable centre piece allows you to put an umbrella in, and doesn’t fold away when the table is not extended.
Another stellar option is the Sutherland Outdoor Teak and Rope Dining Set, made up of our aged teak Sutherland Dining Table and complementary teak and rope dining armchairs. Its weather-worn, aged teak look is warm and incredibly appealing, while coloured rope weave supports the back of the Sutherland teak and rope dining chairs for added comfort, and worry-free Sunbrella® seating cushions seal the deal.
Or, if rustic and intimate is more your BBQ season style, the Hunter Reclaimed Teak Dining Table is a beautiful choice. Made from hearty 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.
Vary your seating options
This is where you can get creative and really mix things up. With plenty of options to choose from like benches, club chairs, love seats, dining chairs and occasional stools, the more seating options you provide at your BBQ, the more family and friends of all ages will enjoy it.
We offer a plethora of beautiful, functional styles from traditional and classic, to organic and modern, and our deep seating teak furniture is available in both modular sectional styles and fixed styles. Each piece is available separately, with the whole collection providing a cohesive and appropriate grouping of high-end outdoor furniture that can easily be tailored to suit your space.
It’s often been said that the biggest challenge to designing the perfect BBQ season space is also the most obvious one: the outdoors. Awnings, sun umbrellas and pergolas are all great ways to shelter your guests – and your outdoor furniture - from harsh sunlight and summer showers. If your space requires an umbrella or two, there are two important things to consider: is the style you have chosen easy to move and control, and how effective and durable is the fabric? We have taken care of the latter by only working with the very best outdoor umbrella fabric available on the global market: Sunbrella®. Providing much needed shade is what the Sunbrella® fabric does best – supplying protection from the elements, comfort in the heat of the summer and undeniable style in an array of colours for over half a century. With SPF 50 + and UV protection that filters close to 100 per cent of UV radiation, Sunbrella® takes care of your family and friends when entertaining outdoors without you even having to think twice about it.
Its unique combination of fabrics creates extreme durability with special characteristics including a low total stretch, no instance of cracking and very good resistance to natural environmental elements. This makes Batyline® ideal for poolside furniture and any pieces which must retain showroom quality good looks while also staying outdoors year round.
Or if you’re looking for chic and cool in crisp white, our contemporary Glaze Aluminium Outdoor Sun Lounger offers modern luxury in a wonderfully sleek form. An adjustable back and wheels at one end for ease of movement make for a premium but always practical piece, while the use of outdoor, UV treated mesh and powder coated aluminium ensures this beauty will look great long after Autumn’s return.
When additional guests turn up for a taste of your famous grill, make sure you have extra seats on hand so they can pull up at a table with minimal fuss. Consider our Como Teak Folding Side Chair, which you can add to a set or stand alone as a comfortable and robust chair. Compatible with a variety of our A-Grade teak dining tables, the Como Folding Side Chair is fantastic for large outdoor dinner parties, and its folding nature means it’s easily stored - and can quickly be added to the party when unexpected guests arrive.
