3 ways to create a serene outdoor dining experience


With summer approaching now is the time to get ready for outdoor dining. Whether you are hosting a small gathering of friends and family or indulging in a meal al fresco, we have created 3 tips to help you elevate your outdoor dining experience this season.


Go bold



Choose an all-black outdoor dining table like the Elaine Outdoor Dining Table and pair it with a chair that features a cream-hued, water-resistant seat and black metal accents like the Parson Outdoor Dining Chair to create some contrast and elevate your outdoor dining space.


Mix textures



Try mixing different materials and styles for your outdoor dining set to create visual interest and dimension to your outdoor dining space. Opt for a rectangle dining table with teak wood, like the Spencer Outdoor Dining Table, and combine it with an outdoor dining chair with woven rope detailing and cushioned seat like the Pierre Outdoor Dining Chair for a relaxed, modern feel that is perfect for entertaining guests on a warm summer night.


Keep it simple



Go for a minimal, Scandinavian-inspired round dining table like the Winston Outdoor Dining Table and pair it with a sleek dining chair with clean lines like the Parson Outdoor Dining Chair, a great option for smaller outdoor dining areas.
