Eco Loves...To Dine Outside
Dining outside is one of our favourite pastimes, combining two loves into one experience: mouth-watering food and the outdoors.

Leave the fuss indoors
Outdoor dining is best when it’s laid-back, unhurried and messy. Grazing platters of food laid out on generously sized tables, comfortable chairs you can sit on for hours and the open air offering a gentle breeze on a warm day.
We love the relaxed lunch that becomes dinner. The welcoming table where anyone can pull up a chair. The sun on our backs during an afternoon soirée and the evening gatherings under a starry night’s sky.
Be playful and low-key
Outdoor dining for us doesn’t have to be conventional. Mix and match your furniture to create your own unique setting. Use benches or stools for flexibility and to save space. Dine at bar bench, standing up or simply with a plate on your lap.
Highlight natural accents
We choose to showcase natural materials and textures when dining outside. Raw timber tables, natural webbing and soft cushions in neutral colour tones. Natural linen napery, enamel plates stacked, cutlery in jars and a cluster of glasses; some will match, some will not. Outside not everything needs to be new, pristine and neatly arranged.
We don’t worry about the spills and the food that misses the plate. That’s the beauty of being outdoors where nothing is too serious or formal. Being in the natural environment grants you permission to be playful and unstructured.
Bring the outdoor vibe in
For when the sun goes down, rug up and settle in for those engaging conversations that extend late into the evening. And if the breeze becomes too cool, take the party indoors. Versatile outdoor furniture doesn’t need to be exclusively used outside. Instead, bring your relaxed vibe into your interior!
Whether you’re looking for a sophisticated setting to marry with your architecture or an informal collection that accommodates your lifestyle, you’ll find many options at Eco Outdoor.
