Outdoor dining furniture

Eat out whenever you want

With a wide choice of different styles and sizes, including matching sets of chairs and tables, our outdoor patio dining furniture helps you create a favourite spot to eat out right there at home. You can choose between artificial materials that need no maintenance or the natural warmth of wood, which only needs a little looking after from time to time.

Create an oasis of comfort and style with outdoor dining furniture from IKEA. Make your garden, patio or balcony the go-to place to enjoy your coffee in the morning sun, and family dinners during warm summer evenings. 

A nice patio table accompanied by a few sturdy chairs can be essential for decorating the outdoor room. In our outdoor dining selection, you will find a wide range of patio tables and chairs for your outside area.

 

Seating in a small nook or an open garden

Eating outside is one of the great joys of summer. To ensure a fine outdoor dining experience, you need to provide good seating and create an inviting environment. 

With a spacious patio or large backyard, you have the freedom to choose how much of your space you want to use for an outdoor dining area. Whether you want a place for quiet family dinners or large backyard parties, you’ll find plenty of options to choose from in our selection. 

If you have a smaller backyard or a balcony, it can sometimes feel like a challenge to make effective use of what you have. However, a bistro set with foldable chairs should fit even limited spaces. And with foldable furniture, you can easily put them aside if you need space for other activities.

Choose a complete set of patio tables and chairs for a complete look. Or maybe mix different tables and chairs to get your own style. We offer tables that can take up to six people. 

 

Add decorative cushions and protective parasols 

Add some stylish accessories to get your outdoor dining area just right.

For a more comfortable experience, add some soft, decorative cushions to the chairs. The colours and patterns can work to pull the decorating style together, while also providing comfortable seating for long summer evenings outside. 

And don’t forget to complement your dining area with a protective gazebo. This way, you can enjoy your lunch outside even when the sun stands high.

 

How to take care of your patio table and chairs

Once you’ve found a set of patio chairs and a table you like, you want to make sure it lasts. The first thing to keep in mind is that, while most outdoor furniture is made for outdoor use, harsh weather will eventually take its toll. Therefore, you need to protect your furniture when not in use. The best protection is offered indoors. But using a waterproof cover outside is also an acceptable option. 

Additionally, you want to do regular maintenance on your table and chairs. How to maintain your furniture will differ a bit depending on their materials. 

For example, tables and chairs in metal, steel and plastic require very little maintenance. Simply clean them occasionally, with a damp cloth and mild soap, to avoid mould and mildew from catching on. 

A set of wooden dining furniture, however, requires a bit more of maintenance. We recommend that you re-stain them once or twice a year. This is to prevent them from drying out and cracking. At IKEA you can find oils and stains to help maintain the quality of your wooden furniture.
