Outdoor dining: A stylish outdoor dining space

When the weather is hot and sunny, outdoor dining is immediately on the menu. At Design Warehouse, outdoor dining in style is in our DNA, with an array of beautiful, modern furniture options to suit every aesthetic.

An all-weather dining table for al fresco entertaining in style is a must in any beautiful outdoor living area. As well as being practical and essential, the right outdoor dining table serves as the perfect way to anchor any al fresco celebration with family and friends. At Design Warehouse we offer a plethora of options, whether you’re looking for an outdoor dining table, outdoor table and chairs set, outdoor wooden table, extension table or more. And for the perfect dining chairs to match? Look no further…

If you’re planning a more formal style meal but still want to take things alfresco, the Capri Extension Table and Twelve Como Chairs Set is a Design Warehouse favourite that our customers adore. It includes the largest dining table available in our range of stunning teak tables, and being dignified 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 is available in four sizes depending on your needs. 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. Add a soft lined tablecloth and your cutlery of choice, and you have a stylish private dining space all your own.

Perfect dining chairs for outdoor dining

Or, if rustic and charming is more your al fresco dining style, the Hunter Reclaimed Teak Dining Table is a truly handsome choice. Made from hearty reclaimed teak wood, it looks beautiful and is strong as well. The teak has been 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 premium grade teak as it evolves, and the imperfections and grain of the wood are the things that make the handsome Hunter so unique and stunning.

Giving you endless options, we also love our unabashedly contemporary Stainless Steel Dining Set with Table + 8 Chairs, an incredibly versatile dining set designed with modern living in mind. Sophisticated and luxurious; the Stainless Steel Dining Set with Table + 8 Chairs features one of our amazing Stainless Steel Extension Tables, beginning at an elegant 165cm by 90cm and extending to 285cm long, giving you great options for large lunch and dinner parties. The Bruno Chairs are a fantastic match, made from Batyline® mesh and #316 Stainless Steel with Grade-A Teak to last and last.

This allows you to have your own unique look whether it includes wicker, Batyline®, aluminium or concrete.

With that in mind, the perfect dining chair is where both style and comfort are most definitely in place, with guests unlikely to stick around if your outdoor dining set doesn’t encourage settling in for the afternoon or night. When many people first visit our Design Warehouse showroom in Parnell, they are immediately struck by the sheer volume of dining chairs we have available. Crafted from everything from Grade-A teak wood to outdoor wicker, rope and aluminium, we really do have something for every outdoor dining setting – and they are built to last. We suggest starting by deciding on what feel or style you want your outdoor dining space to have — moody and luxe, airy and coastal, colourful and contemporary – and then choose our outdoor dining chair options to suit.

We love Grade-A teak and reclaimed teak for our outdoor dining chairs, both of which never fail to add a gentle luxury that lasts to any space. The Emily Reclaimed Teak Dining Arm Chair is a beautiful piece, with a silhouette that encourages you to pause and admire the craftsmanship and nuanced details. Rounded edges paired with fluid lines offer a timeless approach to design, while the warmth of reclaimed teak wood allows for a feel that is soft and engaging.

Or if you have a smaller space and you’re looking for wooden dining chairs that can be easily packed away, our stackable and foldable options are first class. The Como Folding Side Chair has a gentle curve in the back and seat for lower back support and is compatible with a variety of our Grade-A Teak dining tables. So convenient and perfect for when unexpected guests arrive, place eight of these beauties along the sides of the Large Hampton Table, with the Como Arm Chair at each head for a statement in style. Even better? Como chairs can be easily stored when not needed, opening up smaller al fresco spaces with ease.

If you’re not so keen on teak, consider wicker. A study in European chic, our Nairobi Woven Dining Armchair is dripping in style and delivers a truly zen-like feel. With its gorgeously wide, low profile, this dining chair is a great choice for any table you may love, indoors or out. Made with Ecolene® polypropylene weaves in the colour black, with black powder-coated steel framing, it is strong and durable plus easy to clean with just a wash of water and mild soap and a rinse.
