01 Portside Expandable Dining Table in Driftwood by West Elm

Used in over 219 Yardzen designs in 2022 so far

Size: Expands to seat up to 10 comfortably

Price: $1,599

The Portside Expandable Dining Table in Driftwood is our most popular with Yardzen clients! We think it’s the best patio table because it works in a variety of landscape design styles including modern farmhouse and moditerranean. Depending on styling, it could achieve a rustic or elevated aesthetic!

Clients especially love the versatility of the extendable leaves on either side—this table is perfect for a few people, or up to 10 if outdoor entertaining is your thing. The table top can also accommodate a patio umbrella if you need overhead shade.

This table is crafted from FSC-certified wood from sustainably harvested forests. The Portside collection from West Elm includes options for matching outdoor dining sets with dining chairs, benches, side tables, a console, and lounge chairs.

07 Ronde Teak Dining Table by Rejuvenation

Used in over 44 Yardzen designs in 2022 so far

Size: Seats up to 8

Price: $2,049

We love that this table from Rejuvenation is crafted from solid FSC-certified teak. The slatted table top design gives the table a charming rustic vibe and also allows water to easily run through the surface to avoid pooling in weather and when there’s a spill. Rejuvenation pre-treats their teak pieces with Golden Care Teak Shield, which helps prevent stains from food and drink. For teak dining tables specifically, they recommend using this product regularly since food and drink spills are a given! A matching bench from the same collection is available to complete the dining table set.

10 Atra Concrete Dining Table by Article

Used in over 30 Yardzen designs in 2022 so far

Size: Seats 6-8 people

Price: $999

This concrete-topped beauty is the best outdoor dining table for those that love industrial-chic style (but also works in a variety of contemporary yard styles including modern bohemian). The legs are acacia wood and the table top is not actually concrete—it’s a material called polystone. Polystone is popular for a variety of outdoor living applications such as outdoor patio furniture and planters because unlike concrete, it is lightweight, crack-proof, and mold, mildew, and stain resistant. The Atra collection includes a variety of matching coffee tables and side tables.

Styling Tips for Your Outdoor Table

For casual gatherings, top a large round breadboard with nuts and dried fruit. Pair a pile of napkins with old French flatware, utilize vintage jam jars for flickering votives alongside a stack of vintage tumbler or lowball glasses. Fill oversized serving dishes (we love this piece designed by Reiko Yamamoto) fresh fruit and vegetables. Then, for the finishing touch, add a pot of herbs or pull together an easy garden-picked bouquet. Explore a few of the Yardzen team’s favorite tabletop stylings for inspiration.
