Patio dining sets can be placed near your grill or outdoor fireplace for convenience and ease of access. They can be set up for an intimate meal for two, or they can be large enough for a gathering of family, friends or business partners. Frequently they have glass or plexiglass topped tables, but the tables can also be metal, wood or rattan. The chairs can be made of a variety of materials. Some Patio dining sets include a conversation corner booth-style seat that is perfect for parties or for games. Add a canopy and outdoor lights for evening entertainment.
