A table on the patio is the perfect place to celebrate, well, anything. The woven Amari dining table offers plenty of space for serving cakes and champagne, while the Kyoto Aluminum Armchairs are comfortable enough to spend the evening long after the glasses have been emptied.

Give your guests a front row view of your annual croquet tournament by placing seating options all over the lawn. The Kyoto Alu Lounge Chairs are light enough to easily move around, but the high backrest and deep cushions mean everyone can enjoy each other’s company long after the action is over.
