Extending Your Dining Outdoors

When selecting an outdoor dining set there are a lot of important key factors to consider. Comfort, upkeep, shape, material, size, finish, cushion vs. sling for seating, bench, the Iist goes on and on. The most important option in my opinion is do you want your table to extend? It’s always a question that seems to surprise customers when we ask. Quite frankly I was surprised when I got into patio furniture that outdoor dining tables would extend. But they do, and they do with an appealing ease. Most of our extension tables when they are not extended seat about 6 people, but when extended can seat up to 14. I mean that’s basically going from you and your family to you and the soccer team.

So here’s why I personally yield to the extension option. Just having the option of throwing in a leaf or two to accommodate extra guests makes the biggest difference. They give you both options, without having multiple tables. Who doesn’t want to have the patio with that table that can seat everyone?

Most of our tables offer the built-in butterfly pop-up leaf enabling you to open and close your table in less than a minute. The leaves fold away for easy storage. Additional tables have the traditional leaves that you take out and store.

Here are some of our top selling extension tables:
