Outdoor Tables - Consider Stone, Concrete & Ceramic Alternatives

Looking for something different to outdoor timber, aluminium & wicker furniture?

No worries, look no further!  We have a great range of Stone, Ceramic & Concrete Tables that can be matched with a variety of chair types.

Natural Stone

Bring the beauty and unique character of natural Stone to your outdoor dining area.  We predominantly range tables using Marble and Travertine.  Both are forms of limestone, occur naturally and are used extensively as premium building materials.

Benefits:

  • The table top will remain cooler than some other materials
  • Strong & Durable 
  • Low maintenance & suitable for all weather conditions
  • Will not warp or bow
  • Neutral Stone Colours will match nicely with other chair styles and materials

Care & Maintenance:

  • Natural Stone is porous & will require sealing every 6-12 moths using a Premium Aerosol Sealer
  • Coasters should be used to prevent stains & scratches
  • Wipe spills up immediately
  • Do not use abrasive or acid based products on Stone

Concrete 

It is easy to see why Concrete is increasingly popular as a material for outdoor Tables, gone are the days when concrete was boring.  Create a minimalist look with your outdoor dining space or enrich any existing outdoor area style from country to contemporary, industrial, and from traditional to modern.

Benefits:

  • Strong & Durable
  • Variety of Bases in Teak & Aluminium
  • Table tops use FRC (Fiber-reinforced concrete)
  • Table top is sealed with a Wax Sealer
  • Neutral in Colour so it will match nicely with most other chair styles and materials
  • Handcrafted, inherent variations in the colour/shading lend to the unique character, texture and porosity to each product

Care & Maintenance:

  • Concrete will expand and contract in various temperature & humidity, it is natural for hairline cracks to appear over the life time of product (these are not defects but part of the products interaction with its environment and does not pose a a constructional threat to the furniture.
  • Use a damp cloth for daily care
  • Clean Up Spills as soon as possible
  • Use Coasters or placemats to prevent stains or markings
  • Do not cut directly on concrete top to avoid damaging the sealer
  • Avoid placing hot pans on concrete top, excessive heat can damage or discolour the sealer
  • Concrete tabletops are sealed, reseal the table top every 3 to 6 months with Golden Care Natural Stone & Composite Stones Protector

Ceramic

Make a statement with Ceramic and enhance the style and elegance of any outdoor space.  When paired with contemporary aluminium designs Ceramic can offer clean lines and timeless style.

  • Easy to clean 
  • Food scraps cannot penetrate the material and usual food stains are easy to remove
  • Highly stain resistant
  • Extremely heat resistant, hot pans don't discolour or damage the surface
  • Durable & Resilient
  • Will complement other outdoor materials, in particular resin & aluminium

Care & Maintenance:

  • Use a microfiber cloth to remove dust from surface
  • Wash with warm water and detergent, rinse with warm water and dry with a cloth
  • Avoid using products with Hyrdofluoric acid and its derivatives
  • Dry liquid spills immediately 
  • It's not advisable to use waxes and oily soaps as this will leave an oily film on the surface of the Ceramic
  • Do not hit your table top with a blunt and heavy object
