Outdoor Dining Sale

Being outdoors puts an incredible spin on dining. It’s hard to resist the pull of fresh air, cerulean skies overhead and the gentle sounds of wildlife and whooshing trees. Both host and guests get to enjoy gorgeous vistas and a relaxing ambience, so having fun is a given. Once the sun goes down, the smell of wood burning and stars overhead draw friends closer together while sitting down to a sumptuous meal. At west elm, we know that every home exterior is different, and so is your personality. Our outdoor dining sale offers a lot of variety so you can add seating and decor to any spot of your open-air space. Need some ideas for inspiration? Here are a few tips for planning the outdoor dining location of your dreams.


When choosing outdoor dining pieces, it helps to think about the kind of atmosphere you want to create. Some dining tables are deeply rustic, and others lean more towards an elegant and modern vibe. Every option is awesome, but you want something that fits your design vision. Looking for a warm, Italian family-style courtyard? Reclaimed wood and vintage decor combines beauty with an Old World charm. Planters, vases and good wine all make you feel like you’re in the Tuscan countryside. Lanterns and string lights create a laid-back mood of love, dancing and laughter after the stars come out.


For a fresh beachside vibe – perhaps something Mediterranean – place a few bistro tables on your patio or next to the pool. Tile, mosaics and marble make it seem like you can almost smell the salty breeze of the ocean. This is especially true if you have a covered open-air dining space with smooth curtains or a stone fireplace. Mixing both indoor and outdoor lets you decorate with stunning artwork and a chandelier or two.


The type of outdoor space you have can influence your dining furniture choices. Don’t worry, we have pieces that fit beautifully into any location. An apartment balcony is a wonderful spot for a bistro table to share a drink with friends or treat someone special to a dinner for two. Terraces, patios, decks and backyards all bring something special to the table – no pun intended. Want to dine right in your garden? Go for it! A round wood dining table looks elegant and natural when encircled by flowering plants and trees.


No one said you have to focus on just one dining spot, of course. If you have a large patio or backyard, you can design multiple dining areas that cater to different occasions. For example, a bistro table with a comfy woven chair might be the perfect size for enjoying a private breakfast in the morning. Maybe you want a place for quiet relaxation, tea and some reading. Larger dining tables accommodate lots of guests for formal and informal parties. Benches arranged in front of a fire pit or pizza oven allow for fun and food at the same time.
