Used in over 219 Yardzen designs in 2022 so far
Size: Expands to seat up to 10 comfortably
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.

Loved across our contemporary style landscape designs, but especially popular with clients opting for a modern farmhouse look, the Merida outdoor dining table from RH is crafted legally harvested teak wood in accordance with the Indonesia Timber Legality Assurance System. Teak has become one of the most popular materials for outdoor furniture because it’s beautiful, naturally durable, and weather-resistant. You can complete your patio dining set with dining side chairs and armchairs from the same collection—which also includes coffee tables, a side table, sectionals, a chaise, an ottoman, a lounge chair, a sofa, and a round dining table.
Used in over 67 Yardzen designs in 2022 so far
Size: Seats up to 10 with included extension (larger sizes available that seat up 12 with extension)
The Capri is made from the same weathered teak as the previous table in this list from RH, but has clean angles and a more refined simplicity. This table also has the added flexibility of an attached extension that folds away under the center of the tabletop—so you can easily adjust the size to suit 8 or 10 seats. The Capri collection boasts striking teak dining armchairs that really make a statement around this table or with a bistro set, and an outdoor sofa that is also very popular with our clients.
Used in over 62 Yardzen designs in 2022 so far
Size: Seats up to 8 (larger sizes available that seat up to 10)
Elevating everyday alfresco meals is easy with this sleek and minimal modern teak patio dining table. The tapered plank top over and rounded wide legs are crafted from smooth, durable teak for a bold look popular in our moditerranean style landscapes. The teak finish on this beauty from RH is available in a classic weathered look or natural teak which has a warmer hue. The Balmain is also available as a round table for smaller outdoor patio areas, and the Bailman collection includes dining armchairs, a sofa (that’s also a favorite with Yardzen clients), lounge chairs, side table, coffee table, bar & counter stool, a daybed, a chaise, and an ottoman.
A minimal, traditional backyard design for our client in Plano, TX, seen above, lets the Balmain dining set shine as the focal point.
06 Grove Teak Dining Table by Terrain
Used in over 48 Yardzen designs in 2022 so far
Size: Seats up to 8
The soft blonde wash and slatted top of this teak outdoor dining table lends visual interest and a bohemian organic feel with a modern bent. Keep to the table’s rustic ethos by pairing it with a couple of benches or choose chairs for a buttoned-up look. A combination of the two will feel equally balanced.
07 Ronde Teak Dining Table by Rejuvenation
Used in over 44 Yardzen designs in 2022 so far
Size: Seats up to 8
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.
08 Ballo Dining Table by Article
Used in over 37 Yardzen designs in 2022 so far
Size: Seats 4-6 people

This mixed-material outdoor dining table from Rejuvenation has mid-century inspired design that works just as well in modern farmhouse style landscapes. The Bayocean is crafted with a honey-toned teak table top with an umbrella hole for shaded dining and a powder coated rust resistant aluminum frame.
10 Atra Concrete Dining Table by Article
Used in over 30 Yardzen designs in 2022 so far
Size: Seats 6-8 people
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.
The Atra dining table is given a more casual vibe with climbing greenery on a backyard balcony in the landscape design seen above for our client in San Diego, CA.
Yardzen Staff’s Favorite Outdoor Dining Tables

This 7-piece outdoor dining set gives us dreamy coastal vibes. We love that the white resin chairs are a design statement piece, and included at an excellent price.

Sanibel Outdoor Rectangle Dining Table by Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams
Size: Seats up to 8 people (a larger size is available that seats up to 10)
The Sanibel rectangle dining table is made with hand-crafted cast aluminum also available with a zinc finish. The minimal style and functionality of low-maintenance aluminum make it a favorite for Yardzen staff that want their decor and planting, rather than their table, to do the talking. The Sanibel furniture set also includes a round dining table, dining chairs, side and cocktail tables, and poolside chaise.
Gya Indoor/Outdoor Round Dining Table by Lulu and Georgia
Size: Comfortably sits 5 people
This unique glass top rattan table can be used indoors or outdoors and look perfectly at home in either location. While it’s not one of the most universally popular dining tables in our client designs, it is perfect for modern bohemian and casual landscapes.
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.
