Handy Folding Tables with Style
If you like to allow your commercial space to be further opened up when not in use, choose a space-saving table – or two - that folds up easily so you can store it out of sight if necessary. Our classic Café Collection is inspired by Europe’s rich café culture, with a romantic, dreamy frame and solid teak top that you can’t help but love. And naturally steel features heavily, for its solid and permanent feel. The Café Round Teak Folding Table has a beautiful panelled Grade-A Teak top and powder coated steel legs, and is just so versatile. A classic example of the traditional teak folding table, these handy tables are made in A-Grade teak and will last you a lifetime. Gradually ageing to a soft, silvery hue, this style is ideal for outdoor dining, conveniently folding away for compact storage.
Use it any of the above as an extra serving table for bigger parties, or as additional outdoor seating when the weekend brunch rush hits. Pair it up with the Café Teak Folding Side Chairs, or mix materials and add some Blok Concrete Letterboxes as stools for an edgy, urban look.
Essential Stacking Chairs

Alternatively, the nautically inspired Treviso Stacking Chair is a beautiful, simple and elegant addition to any of our A-Grade teak dining tables.

The stunning taupe Wicker Bar Chair is a stellar combination of sturdy, contemporary materials, as well being a fabulous 119cm tall with the most spacious and comfortable seat. It’s a perfect addition to any bar setting, but be warned that your guests may never want to leave!
We also offer an outdoor bar height bistro set using our Raw Concrete Bar Height Table paired with Nairobi Outdoor Bar Stools in Black for lending your bar or restaurant a cool, industrial edge.

Another fantastic option, the Maid Reclaimed Teak Bar Stool is functional, effortless and has classic good looks. At just a little over 75cm tall, it is the perfect height to sit at an outdoor bar or indoor pub, and as it is made with beautiful reclaimed teak, it is strong and durable and has a lovely natural patina. The clever design means they don’t take up too much space because of their small footprint; making them the perfect stools to have on hand to add additional seating when needed for guests. They are made for outdoor use, but will also go beautifully in a kitchen setting.
