Choosing a Patio Dining Set

  1. Ashley says:

    Option 3!

    • Cassandra McKee says:

      I would definitely choose option 2! It looks like it will not only wear well over time but go well with the rest of your home. Not to mention that the metal is super easy to wipe down, and refinish if need be down the road.

    • Britney says:

      option 4 is to die for!!

    • Michelle says:

      The black and white would look so good with what you have????❕ I might get it for our backyard too! Thanks for putting this post together.

    • Jeana says:

      I like option three. I love the different textures of concert and wicker! It seems so classic but also unique as well. I just went through this finding a patio set for my porch, so many options. It makes it hard to choose!

    • Elizabeth says:

      Option 4! I think the color will look great and hold up well over time (less likely to notice distress from elements), and a big bench is awesome with kids!

    • Sarah says:

      I love number 1! We have a similar table and it’s held up great!

    • Sarah says:

      Option 1!!

    • Mary B. says:

      Option 2. ???? And I’m always in the boat with liking the most expensive item.

    • Jenna says:

      I really like the espresso chairs with the cement table (option #3). I think the espresso finish on the chairs will really highlight the cedar gazebo. The cement table will add texture and LAST a very long time. And the way wicker chairs look on a patio is just so gorgeous (and brings in even more texture and draws the eyes in). This is a classic set with a modern twist that will last a long time. You get what you pay for with furniture.. I say splurge!

  2. Casey says:

    I vote the last whitewash one! Totally your style and I think it would look great with the gazebo! We just purchased the Fairmont set and though we like it (and it’s on sale!) it’s probably gonna have a hard time keeping up with multiple kiddos. ????‍♀️

  3. Kate says:

    Ah torn between option 1 & 2! 1 looks super comfy but 2 is classic and may wear better with time ???? so guess I would choose option 2!
    Also we bought a small outdoor dining set 5 years ago from target (2 chairs small table) and it still looks great! Usually just scrub it down at the beginning/end of each season!

  4. Christa says:

    Option 3!!

  5. Mariann says:

    I really love the whitewashed one. It feels so light and breezy. I also love the swivel chairs cause they are so nice to sit in outside and you can easily see all the kids in the yard and talk to your guests. I’m sorry you have to be the one to make this decision!

  6. Vanessa says:

    I agree that the black will pop more against all the cedar but I love option 3 with the concrete slab and espresso chairs. The others are really pretty too but if you’re unsure of the black set but still want to breakup all the brown, def option 3. The concrete top will break it up!????

  7. Emily says:

    Option 3 for sure!! ????????

  8. Stephanie says:

    Option 3!!

  9. Allison says:

    If you are planning on doing black shutters on the house option 2 from Target will match that well so that’s my vote. And you can switch out accent colors on a black and white set easily.

  10. Rose says:

    Concrete table and wicker chairs! Love that look! I think it would be versatile and I’m sure it is very durable too.

  11. Hailee says:

    Option 3 ????????????

  12. Katie says:

    Option 4 for sure!!! It is gorgeous! Also, don’t go with option 1, we had a metal table like that and it rusted within the year. We live in California so it could be the salt in the air by the ocean ????????‍♀️.

  13. Chrissy Morgan says:

    Option 3 with the espresso chairs????????!!

  14. Nicki says:

    I love option 3 or 4!

  15. Meg says:

    Definitely option 3! The concrete slab is awesome and perfect for the outdoors! And you’ll get the perfect amount of warmth with the wooden base and the wicker chairs. I’m torn on the color of chairs. Aside from the cedar gazebo I love the natural color- a more Swedish modern tone, but perhaps next to everything else the darker wicker would go better for a more rustic vibe to balance out the modern concrete slab. I think you can’t go wrong with either color. But by FAR 3 is my fave. And if you’re investing in a 10yr set then why not get the most expensive ????

  16. Amanda Perry says:

    I like Option 3 the best!

  17. Jessie says:

    I like option 2, then second choice option 1! I think a non wood option will hold up better outside. Plus, I think the colors would look best with the gazebo!

  18. Madison says:

    Option 3! Love that concrete table

  19. Lauren says:

    I’d vote for the concrete or black. So fun! Makes me want to redo my patio area

  20. Mary says:

    Option 3 out of the two more expensive options. Love the concrete! Option 2 out of the more affordable options.

  21. Julia says:

    Option 3 for sure! I like the lighter chairs with it, but either would look great. The concrete will hold up SO well. Just so you know if you want to scout it out my friend got a concrete table like that at home goods for way cheap!

  22. Lainie says:

    Option number 3!! I LOVE the look of the concrete table with the lighter wicker chairs! I think this look best matches your farmhouse style ????

  23. Marissa says:

    I love 3 with your gazebo!!

  24. Missy says:

    Option 3! Love a good concrete table! Will last forever throughout all seasons.

  25. Sarah says:

    Option 2! I love the swivel chairs 🙂

  26. Ava says:

    Caution re: cement…We used to have a poured cement top on our island and it stained so easily – worse than marble because at least marble can hide it. Just something to take in consideration – one glass with condensation and there’s a ring you can never get rid of. It does get better over time when that happens multiple times and the wear looks more loved in but that first year is frustration

  27. Cristin says:

    2! Love the black and you won’t regret the swivel chairs!!! 🙂

  28. Melissa says:

    I vote option number 3 the one you truly love! If you’ve been saving up to redo your outdoor space then I’m a firm believer to purchase only things you absolutely love! I have a natural wood trestle table bottom with a zinc top in my dining room with wicker chairs from restoration hardware outlet (because it’s a bit more affordable there) and I absolutely love it! And if by chance you have a pottery barn outlet or restoration hardware outlet I highly recommend looking there they may have the same or very similar at a discounted price! We have both outlets where I live and they always have tons of outdoor furniture this time of year! Just food for thought!

  29. Lauren says:

    Love both options 3 and 4! I think either would look super cute in your back yard!

  30. Lauren says:

    Option 3!

  31. Liana says:

    Option 3! But 4 is a VERY close second. Good luck!

  32. Nicole says:

    I love option 2 because a)the black will pop against the White House and cedar gazebo but still tie into your shutters when you paint them and b) because swivel chairs are a must-have

  33. Chrissy says:

    Go with the splurge! Patio furniture lasts a long time. If you get a different set, you will always think back to the one you REALLY loved and regret not getting that one. Also, swivel chairs seem like a great idea, until the kids discover them and use them for entertainment. 😉

  34. Lauren says:

    Option 3 looks best with the gazebo but I love option 2 because it look durable and would be gorgeous with the stone.

  35. Lauren Catoe says:

    Option 3 with the darker chairs if you are looking for that dark contrast with the cedar. I like the wicker chairs as they seem safer than the chairs with slats as the back as little arms would likely try to get stuck in them. Just food for thought.

  36. Jessica says:

    Option 4. Love the whitewash.

  37. Jane says:

    Option 3! Then 2 🙂

  38. Beka says:

    I like the black and white!! Also, swivel chairs just seem like the perfect choice for patio furniture. ????

  39. Nisa says:

    Swivel/metal for durability, practicality with kids and timeless look. But I’m old school ????

  40. Nazsoni says:

    Option 2 ????

  41. Ashlyn says:

    Option 3 with espresso chairs!

  42. Albina says:

    Option 2! It would contrast against the stone and gazebo, so that not everything is brown. That set has swivel chairs, a classy look and it’s metal so it’ll last a long time!

  43. Keri says:

    I like option 1. The arms aren’t too big and bulky so the kids can get in and out easily. Plus it seems to match your style.

  44. Jen says:

    Option 4! Great mix of style and function plus the whitewash will definitely pop against your cedar. I also think option 2 will show dust and pollen much more because it’s black (our black metal set does this…worst).

  45. Meredith says:

    Option 4! I love the chairs! ????

  46. Autumn says:

    Option 3 for sure!

  47. Courtney says:

    I would go with option 3 if it’s durable and can withstand kids (my boys are rough on tables). I like to think long term with pieces like this and the investment although bigger in the beginning will average out of it lasts. I’m tired of getting stuff that’s less expensive only to have to purchase it again because it isn’t durable. I also do like option 4 if you’re looking for something more cost effective.

  48. Ashlee says:

    I love option 3 🙂 although I’m sure they will all look good !

  49. Kelsi says:

    Number 2 Black goes well with everything and you can add different color pillows to change it up!

  50. Laura says:

    Option 4! We just bought this table (I got different chairs, but I loved these!). It is such great quality for the price. I feel like it will last for a long time. We put a cover on it when it rains. I’m in love with it, and I think you will like it, too.

  51. Mackenzie Thornton says:

    Option 3 with the deep brown chairs!

  52. Laura Baez says:

    I love Option 2! I think it will look amazing with your house and gazebo! I bought my outdoor patio set from target 3 years ago and it has held up so well. And you can’t beat that price.

  53. Amy says:

    Option 3!!!! The legs of the the table compliment the Gazebo and the top of the table compliment the stone!!! The quicker chairs give it that warm cozy feeling outside. The table looks really durable and easy to clean. It will be beautiful when it’s all finished. Good luck. ????

  54. Jen says:

    Option 3! Now that may be because I’ve had my eye on the exact table. 🙂 in the end, we are going with poly furniture from the Amish. It’s made out of recycled plastic and is 99% maintenance free in summer and winter! Lots of designs lots of colors. We had a cute table from World Market and that thing lasted 1 summer. If it rained you had to cover it. Sorry I have kids so I don’t have time to babysit a table from rain 24-7.

  55. Vicky says:

    Love option 3 with the darker chairs

  56. Natalie Bykowski says:

    I would pick up option 3. Love the combo of concrete and wicker. I think they will last a lot longer than the metal too. My outdoor metal dining table set is rusting already after 4 years. It’s from Home Depot though. My next table I am not doing metal.

  57. Melissa says:

    Option 4!! This set just looks comfy and you can spend hours at the table drinking and eating while still being comfy.

  58. Kari Nowezki says:

    Option 3

  59. Chanel says:

    I love the option 3 with the espresso chairs! I love the rustic look of the table and the chairs look comfy. Lastly, the concrete table will be long lasting!

  60. Abby koehling says:

    I would for option 3 with the dark wicker chairs! I know patio furniture can be expensive but I think you get what you pay for. I love the look of the concrete table top and think it will be a piece that will last forever! Our friends have a concrete table and they love it. You also won’t have to worry about it blowing away!!! Ha! I also think these pieces are timeless and won’t be something you will get tired of!

  61. Natalie Mattson says:

    I like Option 2! You can’t go wrong with the durability of steel, especially in harsh weather! I think the dark color will compliment your home and gazebo nicely. AND the swivel chairs. Swivels are the best!

  62. Angela says:

    Option 2! The black and white is so classic. It will be a nice contrast to the brown Gazebo. The option to have swivel chairs is also a major plus. Lots of good options but 2 is the best.

  63. Kait says:

    I vote option 2 or 4! (am I allowed to pick two?! 😉 I feel like each one would go well with the stone and not compete with it. Also, both would blend beautifully with the style of your home! Can’t wait to see what you choose 🙂

  64. Anastasiya says:

    Option number 3 <3

  65. Brooke says:

    All are great options for one reason or another, but to only choose one, I pick option 3. Love the look, durability (I assume) and just how inviting it looks. Can’t wait to see it all come together!

  66. Mackenzie says:

    Love, love, love option 3!

  67. Brielle says:

    Option 3. I think the concrete top is really cool and will last longer. However I don’t know much about long lasting outdoor furniture because we live in South Florida and nothing lasts more than one or two summers in the sun! And I like the espresso chairs, nice contrast to the tile and gazebo. Good luck!

    • Brielle says:

      But I do know that if you want long lasting go for teak…very expensive but last forever in all climates! 🙂

  68. Sarah says:

    Love option 3! I wish you could do something like the table for option with chairs from option 2 in the right color, but I think 3 is the best of both worlds (except swivel chairs)!

  69. Adrian says:

    Definitely option 2! I love the look of the wicker, but you can’t beat the practicality of the metal. Plus the swivel! I think the metal set would be much more durable and easier to clean than the wicker.

  70. Kristin says:

    I love option 2! You can’t go wrong with classic black and white. No matter what you choose I know it will look great! Good luck! ????

  71. Teighler says:

    Option 4 for sure! So pretty! It would also be easy to replace chairs later on if you needed to!

  72. Erica says:

    Option 3 is so nice!! Looks well made and timeless

  73. Amy Rico says:

    I love them all, but after seeing your gazebo and stone selections, I would opt for 2 if you want a timeless look that will also pop against the colors. I really love 3 with your color scheme though- it would blend seamlessly!

  74. Elizabeth says:

    Option 4! I think the color will look great and hold up well over time (less likely to notice distress from elements), and a big bench is awesome with kids!

  75. Monica says:

    Option 3!!!

  76. Susan Traver says:

    Option 3!!! I was by it at Target all the time all set up and it looks soooooo good! Waiting for our deck to be finished so i can purchase it as well!

  77. Taylor says:

    Option 3 or 4! I think the white wash is your style and super cute and I love the bench, but I also think option 3 matches a the stone and gazebo better and will be better with time because of the concrete too!

  78. Erica says:

    We have option one. Do NOT buy it. The aluminum table is so light weight that it blows over with the slightest wind. It only last one summer

  79. Lexi says:

    Option 1, I love option 3 as well but I think option 1 looks very similar and if it is the cheaper option for the same look I say go for it! I’m obsessed with the wicker and the dark table will pop against your house. I’m clearly playing devil’s advocate because everyone loves option 3 but I think option 1 is such a similar look! Whatever choice you make is going to look amazing! Best of luck!

  80. Hannah says:

    Okay I LOVE the concrete table (option 3) but I’m not 100% sold on the wicker chairs with it. Maybe some black metal chairs to go with it? Or option 4, km a bug fan of too!! Good luck!! 🙂

  81. Brooke W says:

    Option 1! I love the chairs and the classic look of the table. If you don’t like that one go with option 4!

  82. Sheila s says:

    Option 3!!! It looks great alone or decorated!

  83. Erin says:

    Loveeeee Option 3!!! ????????

  84. Amber says:

    Definitely white wash!!!

  85. Nayeli says:

    I think the concrete table with the fairmont swivel chairs would be such a pretty sight. The concrete table can be either modern or farmhouse how you like it. If you get bored of one you will be able to change and style it so many ways because it’s not classical or traditional and it would be durable with your kids. The swivel chairs would allow you to maneuver and watch your kids with minimal movement to be done. Lol.

  86. Meghan Couture Roy says:

    Option 2! The black & white is just classic and the chairs look so cozy for long evenings on the patio! It definitely goes with your vibe!

  87. Aimee says:

    Option 3 with espresso chairs!

  88. Brande says:

    Option 2! I love the black and white and think the swivel chairs would be great!

  89. Tina says:

    Option 3 with natural color hands down. While it may be the most expensive, having high quality furniture is worth it. It easily looks the highest quality (at least from the pictures), and the natural I think matches your stone and gazebo colors better with a lighter tone. Also I tend to like lighter tones for outdoor furniture as colors tend to fade over time in the sun. Wicker chairs will be easier to move around (light) and the cushions look comfy.

  90. Ashley Libengood says:

    Option 2! You can’t go wrong with classic black and white. I think it would look great with the stone and gazebo. But any of the options would look amazing!

  91. Julia says:

    Option 3 is gorgeous. But if it’s too pricey, I also think 1 is ????????????

  92. Monica says:

    I say option 4! The contrast with your pergola would be so pretty, and I like the bench that mixes it up!

  93. Heather Moore says:

    Option 2. Black and white goes with everything and never goes out of style. Pillows and other accessories are easier to get pops of color with it too. It goes great with your patio and gazebo and the chairs are better with kids. Easier to clean than the wicker and kids like to swivel. ☺️

  94. Melissa King says:

    I love option 4!

  95. Melissa says:

    I love option one, so cute!

  96. Brittney says:

    #2 is really cute and more modern, but I am OBSESSED with option #3!

  97. Jillian says:

    Option 3 with the espresso wicker chairs ????

  98. Anna says:

    Option 3! Love the concrete top!

  99. Maggie says:

    I like 2 and 3!! I’m on a black and white kick right now and I ❤️ the concrete top and swivel chairs with #3 too!!

  100. Joanna says:

    Loving option 4!!!

  101. Jenna M says:

    Love option 3 in the espresso wicker! First of all, I am obsessed with the concrete table and I think it will make clean up super easy/less maintenance. Plus you don’t have to worry about conditioning the tabletop if you had an all wood one. Second of all, I love Pottery Barn! ???? Haha…good luck! I’m sure whichever you end up with will look amazing when it’ll all be put together!

  102. Erika says:

    Option 4! I just bought it with the black and white bistro chairs and it’s so pretty!! You will love it. The quality is great also, and it’s large!!

  103. Julie S says:

    Option 3:)

  104. Rebecca says:

    I love option 3. I think the concrete would be low maintenance and it gives the space personality. Option 4 is in second place for me.

  105. Caitlyn says:

    Option 3 with the lighter chairs would look great with your gazebo!

  106. Sarah says:

    I would go with option 4 I think the light wash will contrast well with the stone, gazebo, and those gorgeous trees in your yard.

  107. Macie says:

    Option 2! b&w is so classic and I think swivel chairs are a must!

  108. robin says:

    Option 3. Love the concrete and I think it will be the most durable.

  109. cyndy says:

    Black is nice but also very predictable. Option 3 is nice right now but the concrete industrial look is a trend. Option 4 is timeless. The simple lines, the unexpected style of chair and the color make it easy to change the entire look by changing accessories. What a tough decision. They are all great

  110. Deidra says:

    I like option 3. The chairs look comfortable.

  111. Jennie says:

    Hi Lynzy

    I don’t mean to confuse you, but we just purchased a new outdoor dining set from Lowes. It has swivel chairs and a nice table. The 5 pieces cost $399 ! It is called Skytop from Garden Treasures. The chairs are padded so you don’t have to deal with dirty cushions that I absolutely hate! The set that we got only seats 4, but they have larger sets for bigger families. We put it together when we came home and absolutely love it!!!
    We have been looking everywhere for the perfect set! We have a pergola which has a cover that compliments the furniture!
