This grand outdoor space was designed with entertaining in mind. Not only does the space include two covered decks, but it also features a spacious patio with two small dining tables, plush outdoor furniture and a gorgeous stone fireplace with stunning metal work details.
This rooftop deck offers several options for seating: You can cozy up on the sectional, recline on the lounge chairs or gather around the outdoor dining table. Artificial grass stands in for an outdoor rug and helps define the separate seating areas.
Leather upholstered furniture creates a great outdoor dining area on this covered patio. Yellow light fixtures add small pops of vibrant color and keep the porch bright. Plants in the window planter add lush, natural color to the neutral palette.
Bright orange chairs are bold statement pieces in this French country-inspired backyard. A wood pergola houses an outdoor dining area and effortlessly flows into a sitting area with white patio furniture and stone fire pit.
No matter how small your outdoor space, make it pop with table linens and fresh flowers in look-at-me shades. Set up a beverage station so guests can help themselves, and add cushions or pillows to chairs -- comfortable furniture will entice guests to sit a spell.
Before the brisk weather becomes too cold, take advantage of al fresco dining with practical furniture groupings. Round tables make for better conversation as guests can chat fluidly across from one another or when seated side by side. Instead of buying matching sets, try pairing vintage chairs with new, modern tables or vice versa.
Heat lamps mounted to the white pergola ensure that outdoor dining can be comfortable in many temperatures. A garden lines the border of the porch, adding layers and life to the landscaping. A mix of outdoor contemporary furniture allows for ample seating.
With this breathtaking view, it wouldn't be surprising if most dinners take place outside on this porch than inside. The large dining table comfortable seats 10, making it perfect for entertaining or family gatherings. Sleek dining furniture doesn't distract from or inhibit the view.
The designer used a tiki hut to create a protected dining area that the family could use throughout the year. Since the water feature and bridge were such a big part of the family's request, it was important that they would be one of the project's main features. Oolite and coral stone were used for the pond and surrounding areas. The outdoor dining furniture is from Janus et Cie.
