What kind of table and chairs suit you best for eating outdoors? Here at Stylish Eve, we’ve seen everything from a picnic table and benches set beneath an umbrella to ornate wrought-iron chairs and paisley cushions; here’s a gathering of some of the best. We weren’t kidding about the picnic table-style dining set — take a look at it on a deck between two pools of water on a New York estate. Casual yet elegant, a wood parquet-styled table works on a stone deck steps from an outdoor kitchen, while an ultra-modern ensemble of white features filigree trim. Take a look at the circular tables lighted from inside, or the sleek metal set in gray and lemon yellow, with glass tile accent as a centerpiece. Simple trestle tables and folding chairs make moving the party easy; built-in benches and a raised, up-lighted table on the deck are striking.

Tables can be part of extensive outdoor entertaining areas, grouped around pools or flower gardens, or tucked beneath their own private tents, gazebos, or covered patios. Seat your guests all at one long table, covered in white cloth and set beneath tall trees — or at individual bistro tables and chairs of purple, lime green, turquoise, or palest gray. Instead of a table, have a high counter with pink-and-wrought-iron stools; set a romantic spot for two in a secret garden, canopied by canvas and lighted with dozens of plump white candles. Aim your table to gaze out on the ocean — or to allow easy conversation with those lounging indoors. There are more options here than we’ve got space to talk about them; just browse these pictures and find your next picnic spot!
