Finding The Right Oak Table For Your Garden

Oak has a long and storied past as a material for the outdoor environment thanks to its durability and sturdiness. Oak is the perfect material for us when it comes to crafting luxury outdoor furniture for the garden, as unlike many other materials, oak can be steam bent, adding to the attractiveness of the piece of furniture and also giving it graceful curves for support and comfort.

What is the best shape table for your GARDEN?

A good terrace, balcony or decked area can be a great place to entertain your guests, whether it’s dining outdoors, a cup of morning coffee or simply enjoying the sunshine. However, deciding on the right table shape often requires more consideration than you might think. Different outdoor table shapes offer different advantages depending on your outdoor space, whether oval, round, square or rectangular, it’s important to take the time to find the right table to suit your needs.


When choosing your next outdoor table let the natural features of your garden be your guide, for example, if your garden features curves then a round table such as the Bailey Table might compliment the space. Alternatively, an area with lots of straight lines might be better suited to a rectangular outdoor table such as our Mead Table and the addition of straight benches and seats can help to complete the look while also providing plenty of seating for guests.
