A comfy outdoor chair makes a big difference to relaxation levels, and with a couple of flexible garden chairs you can easily find the right combination to suit your space and needs. Just add your favourite outdoor cushions for extra cosiness. Don't forget to an outdoor coffee and side table to rest your glass of wine on.
Create an oasis of comfort and relaxation with outdoor dining furniture from IKEA. Your garden, patio or balcony can be your go-to spot for everything from your morning coffee to an evening dinner with the family.
A nice garden table and a few sturdy chairs are essential for decorating and enjoying your outdoor space. Our wide selection of tables and chairs come in a variety of sizes, colours and materials to suit every garden or outside space.
Seating in a small nook or an open garden
Eating outside is one of best things about the summer. For a fine al fresco experience, you need two things – good seating and an inviting environment.
If you’re looking to decorate a large garden or spacious patio, you have more choice when it comes to creating a seating or dining area. Whether you want a space that’s perfect for large garden parties or something more intimate for quiet family dinners, we’ve got plenty of options for you to choose from.
If you have a smaller garden or a balcony, it can feel like a challenge to make the most of what you have. However, a two-seater table set with foldable chairs should fit even limited spaces. Plus, you can easily put foldable chairs aside if you need space for other activities.
Choose a matching patio table and chairs for a complete look. Or maybe mix together a different table and chairs to create your own style. Our tables can take up to six people.
Add decorative cushions and protective parasols
Give your outdoor dining area a stylish finish with our range of decorative accessories. For a more homely feel, add some soft, cosy cushions to your chairs. Not only will they provide a comfortable seating for long evenings outside, the colours and patterns will add to the ambience and bring your outdoors to life.
A protective parasol is the perfect finishing touch to any dining area. Once put up, you can enjoy your lunch outside even when the sun is at its strongest.
How to take care of your garden table and chairs
Once you’ve found a set of garden chairs and a table you like, you want to make sure it lasts. Now, while most outdoor furniture is made to be used in gardens, on patios or balconies, harsh weather will eventually take its toll. Therefore, you need to protect your furniture when it’s not in use. The easiest way to defend your furniture from damage is by storing it indoors. If that’s not feasible, putting a waterproof cover over the top of your table and chairs is another option.
Regular maintenance is also important. This will vary depending on what your furniture is made from.
For example, metal, steel or plastic tables and chairs require very little maintenance. A quick, occasional clean with a damp cloth and some soap is all they need to prevent a build-up of mould and mildew.
Wooden dining furniture, however, requires a bit more care. We recommend that you re-stain the surface once or twice a year. This helps to prevent the wood from drying out and cracking. At IKEA, we’ve got the oils and stains you need to maintain the quality of your wooden furniture.
