• Round outdoor tables
, or oval outdoor tables for a seating capacity that exceeds 5 people, make all the difference for a conversation amongst family and friends. From outdoor bistro tables
to patio dining tables, this shape is a great option for a more intimate dining experience outside.

Wicker is a style of weaving that you can get customized in durable materials and fabrics including bamboo and resin plastic. Plastic patio tables, in general, are lightweight and inexpensive. While plastic furniture materials hold up well in humid, wet climates, they need to be brought in or secured during strong winds and storms.

Cedar furniture is perfect for a region with a knack for insects. This wood is built to resist rodents, moisture and decay. Acacia wood, in particular, is visually striking with a deep honey color and a strong grain.
