Choosing an Outdoor Table

Nothing beats balmy Summer nights in Perth with delicious food and great friends gathered around your outdoor table.

As we are in the height of the entertaining season, you want to ensure you are getting the best use out of your outdoor alfresco area. The ideal outdoor entertaining area needs a beautiful and functional outdoor setting, which is anchored on finding the perfect outdoor table.

If you are on the search for a new outdoor table, we recommend first deciding how the table will be used- how many people will you need to seat at the table? Will it be undercover or fully exposed? You want to ensure the outdoor table you purchase is large enough to serve its required function, without being over-cluttered with too many chairs and whilst still allowing plenty of room to walk around the table.

Material selection is another important factor when deciding on an outdoor table. The wicker table range at Archipelago Living is extremely popular as they require minimal maintenance. With a simple hose down, a wicker outdoor table will be clean and ready for its next use! If you are willing to put in a little bit of effort to maintain a beautiful outdoor table, stone could be a fantastic option as it is modern, beautiful and only requires minimum maintenance (a simple wipe over with a wet cloth) however, they can’t be fully exposed to the elements.

If you want a truly beautiful piece of outdoor furniture, we would recommend a teak outdoor table, however, as they are a living, breathing material, they need a little more care to preserve their beauty for many years to come. A teak outdoor table will require either oiling or sealing with marine grade sealer to protect them from spills.

Once you have chosen your perfect outdoor table, it is time to find the outdoor chairs to match! If you choose a wicker outdoor table, we would recommend pairing it with wicker chairs to match. However, if you selected a stone or teak outdoor table, it would look fantastic with almost any chair you choose!
