Stylish ideas for enjoying your meals out in the open
- byCandice Morato
A slatted wooden pergola or covered outdoor area is perfect for diffusing the sun's rays while you gather around a large teak setting. Try Woodbury House for a similar dining setting and Bowerhouse for kantha cushions and throws.
This garden makeover played up a wooden theme, including a compact timber setting on a sunken deck. Try Ikea for a similar dining setting.
Combine an eclectic collection of vintage furniture and accessories for a laid-back, colourful setting. Try Ebay for one-off rustic pieces and Ruby Star Traders for similar batik tablecloths.
Look for deep and cushioned dining chairs you and your guests can relaxingly sink into. Try Domayne for a similar dining setting.
