We’re often asked to recommend teak dining tables, however much depends on personal style and taste, outdoor space, the intended use, and of course, the width of the teak chairs or benches selected. Here are our guidelines to help you choose.
For comfortable seating around a teak table, we suggest a space of at least 60cm per person based on a teak chair width of 45cm. But there’s always flexibility to squeeze in a few more chairs on those special occasions!
Choosing the table shape is influenced by both personal preference and the outside area. Oval and round tables often offer slightly more space around them, but generally accommodate less people than rectangular or square tables of the same dimensions. The position of table legs also needs to be considered.
Classic teak tables with beautifully slatted table-tops, extra thick square legs (detachable for storage) and central parasol hole, which are extremely versatile for any outdoor setting or occasion. They remain a firm favourite and we’re often asked to custom-make ‘Laurels’ to suit particular spaces. Given their continued popularity, we’ve introduced some additional sizes and shapes for 2018.

For 6: Rectangular 80cm x 150cm | Oval 100cm x 150cm
For 6/8: Oval 100cm x 180cm
For 8: Rectangular 80cm x 180cm or Square 150cm x 150cm or Oval 100cm x 200cm

Solid extending teak tables with attractive slatted tops and two foldaway extension leaves. Parasol holes in central table panel and lower stretch means a parasol base is not necessary.
