OUTDOOR DINING FURNITURE OPTIONS
With our patio makeover that we're in the midst of, I've had outdoor furniture on the brain. (Catch up on Part 1 of the patio project here, Part 2 here, and Part 3 here.) We're kind-of starting over out there so I've been hunting for some new pieces. We have a great iron set that will last forever, but it only seats 4 and I'm looking for something bigger. Today I thought I'd show you some pieces that I've come across in my search that caught my eye. Some of these might have even come to live at my house, so stayed tuned next week when I'll share the design plan for the patio with you.
More and more I'm liking a little touch of modern mixed in with my design, and what's more modern that a ghost chair?
Classic farmhouse style- This table is actually aluminum but is finished to look like wood. Love that it has the look of wood but not the maintenance, and will be able to withstand any outdoor weather.
The table and clear chair in the next one aren't marketed as outdoor furniture, but I don't think I'd have any problem using them in a well covered area or screened in porch. I couldn't decide which chair I like better with it, the left gives a more tradition feel and the right mixes things up with a rustic/modern feel. I'd also love the ghost chair from above with this table!
Once again, this table isn't outdoor, but I'd still use it in a covered area after making sure that the top is sealed well if it wasn't previously.
I like this table so much, I included it twice. However, this one is a different color and larger size that the gray one above. I think at 60" you could squeeze in 6 chairs around this one.
Most of the time I like to mix and match and not use a "set", but I'm including this one because I really like both pieces together. It doesn't look too matchy matchy. Like the farmhouse style one above, this one is actually a metal table, also.
I'm definitely ready for lots of patio sitting this Fall, now we just need our temperatures to cooperate!
