Outdoor Furniture for a Smaller Space

It’s always a plus if your house or apartment has a deck for relaxing on and entertaining, and no matter how tiny it is, there is so much design potential and a plethora of beautiful outdoor furniture for a smaller space at Design Warehouse. Depending on what your aesthetic is and whether it comes off a bedroom or living area, it can be an outdoor oasis, morning coffee-spot, or the ultimate petite entertaining zone.

Whether you have a tiny apartment balcony or a smaller sized outdoor patio, to make the most of the space you should focus on creating a seamless blend between the indoors and out, and create an intimate space that is equally as beautiful as your home's interior.

From beautiful weather-resistant pieces to a cosy loveseat and side tables, we bring you some of our outdoor furniture favourites for filling a small footprint with ease. [caption id="attachment_47465" align="alignright" width="300"]

Table for Two

All you need to enjoy your morning coffee or evening pinot gris on your balcony is a café table and a couple of chairs. To allow the space to be further opened up when not in use, choose a space-saving table that folds up easily so you can store it inside if necessary. As if taken straight out of a Parisian Café, our Café Round Teak Folding Table (right) has a beautiful Grade A Teak top with powder coated steel legs, making for a romantic, whimsical look whilst still being a practical piece that folds away for easy storage. The Café Round Teak Folding Table looks great with the Café Teak Folding Arm or Side Chairs, but can also be teamed up with basic teak chairs, or even a little concrete stool.

If you’re keen on purely using wood on your balcony for an enhanced organic feel, our Round Teak Folding Dining Table is the perfect option for you. A classic example of the traditional teak folding table, these round teak folding tables are made in Grade-A teak and will last you a lifetime. Gradually aging to a soft, silvery hue, this table is ideal for outdoor dining, conveniently folding away for compact storage. [caption id="attachment_48188" align="alignright" width="300"]

Design a Spot for Happy Hour Al Fresco

What’s better than spending happy hour watching sunsets or gazing at the stars? An outdoor coffee table and two low chairs are all you need to create a space to relax while the world passes you by below. Pair your coffee table of choice with one or two of our wicker Nairobi Pure Wicker Relaxing Chairs in a soft moss colour (pictured, right). A simple chair with contemporary flair, the Nairobi Pure features a rounded back for cosying into and a base that subtly curves up to add unobtrusive arms to this dashing chair. With a mid-century furniture vibe and a relaxed elegance all its own, Nairobi Pure is a favourite for reclining in style.

Love a Loveseat

The loveseat feels like it was purpose built for smaller spaces, and our Monterey two-seater lounge piece in gorgeous Grade-A teak is a fabulous, substantial outdoor loveseat at an amazing 140 centimetres wide. It happily seats two people with room to breathe, and is also a great size for kicking back and taking all the time and space you need! Built to last, it comes with marine grade hardware and four comfy Sunbrella® cushions, so you know it will last the distance in any climate.

Handy Side Tables

A smaller space doesn’t mean a less functional space, and we have a plethora of side tables that are ready to be put to use whenever and wherever you need them. If boho luxe is your al fresco vibe, consider adding a Banzi Teak Root Accent Table (picgtured, right). With a raw and earthy finish, each Banzi wooden side table has been carved and shaped from a teak tree trunk and left unfinished. Designed to age beautifully over time, its smooth top is perfect to set a drink or two on, or a potted plant. If you’re after something a little more contemporary cool, the Point Outdoor Aluminium Side Table in a muted grey tone of powder-coated aluminium is the side kick for you.

No matter how small your outdoor space is, Design Warehouse offers a plethora of beautiful options that will fit the brief and look great for a lifetime. Each piece in our range is carefully designed so as to be the perfect mix of form and function, being as durable as they are a statement in style. We would love to help you set your home up for a summer of relaxation, so feel free to call one of our designer furniture sales professionals for more information.
