As we head into spring, dining outside once again becomes possible. The right décor plays a key role in creating ambience for your outdoor events. Spring get-togethers offer the first chance to banish winter, while summer events are just the perfect excuse to relax. Consider different styles of patio furniture to set the tone you want for your entertaining in the warmer months. Whether you have leisurely lunchtime gatherings or enchanted evenings with friends, it all starts with choosing the perfect style of patio furniture.

Taking a mix and match approach to furniture styles and materials will create an eclectic outdoor dining experience. For instance, contrasting styles of head chairs, such as the Lodge, Cabin, Bay, or Belmont outdoor dining table armchairs is one easy way to accent your dining set. Pieces made from recycled teak, like the Peaks Recycled Teak Outdoor Dining Table (oval or rectangular) or Teak Bench add naturalism, as well as a touch of the eclectic. Peaks patio furniture offers a range of styles to work with, personalizing the look of your garden dining set in a way that reflects your unique taste.


Natural Looking Outdoor Furniture

Naturalistic patio furniture starts with pieces made from teak. To bring a relaxed feel to your outdoor dining space consider the Jasper Dining Arm Chair and Stream Dining Table. Teak has many qualities that make it an ideal material for patio furniture that is durable and stylish. The hardest wood teak naturally can withstand  water, rot, and insects. The golden-brown color of teak furniture gives it a warm patina, that will age into a stunning silver patina. Teak  is capable of withstanding extreme temperatures. Teak can have minimal maintenance if you choose to let your teak age naturally, and will  last for decades.


Transitional Style Outdoor Furniture

A transitional outdoor dining space offers the ultimate in flexibility for your everyday dining experience. Furniture using modern aluminum finishes combined with traditional woven resin offers this stylish functionality. The Davenport Dining Arm Chair and Croquet Dining Table create this look, while offering indoor-outdoor versatility. For both pieces, the use of aluminum frames ensures an aura of sleek, modernity. Incorporated into this is woven resin, ensuring echoes of warmth and tradition.


Casual Outdoor Furniture

Outdoor entertaining feels best when it's casual. Spring and summer are a time to relax. The Cabin Club Chair in contemporary whitewash wicker brings a chill and easygoing look to your outdoor event. When gathered around a 52-inch Teak Chat Height Table (also available at a 43-inch size, for smaller gatherings), the Cabin Club Chair (in beach wash and black) invites intimate warm weather dining/lounging  and good times with friends.
