Teak Occasional Tables
An outdoor accent table adds a distinctive visual flair and practical comfort to your outdoor living space. Much like the side table in your family room, outdoor occasional tables typically sit next to lounge seating and offer a small surface to place drinks, reading material, and the other accouterments you need for a relaxing day.
While we offer a selection of stylish outdoor accent tables in a variety of materials, this collection of teak side tables includes some of our most popular offerings, ranging from traditional to modern design styles.
Teak Wood Side Table
Teak wood remains the premier design material for luxury outdoor furniture. The tropical hardwood possesses a timeless natural beauty and an extreme resilience against outdoor elements like rain and sun. This oil-dense wood sports a distinctive golden amber hue, that, over time, weathers into a distinguished silver-grey patina.
The high oil density gives the wood its celebrated color but also protects the furniture against mildew, pests, and moisture. With a little maintenance each year, your teak side table will retain its integrity and appearance for decades.
Styles of Teak Side Tables
Today's outdoor furniture designers continue to feature teak in their collections, honoring traditional design structures and combining teak with other materials for a contemporary reimagining of this classic raw material.
Teak accent tables with a square or rectangular surface lean more traditional, lending themselves to a classic European garden look. Barlow Tyrie's Colchester Square Side Table is the embodiment of the country manor aesthetic and makes for a perfect pairing with traditional teak outdoor furniture.
Round teak side tables can hint at mid-century modern influences, like Gloster's Dansk Side Table, or carry a sleek and sophisticated modern look. Mamagreen's Meika Teak Side Table demonstrates this new approach by combining a reclaimed teak surface with a lightweight stainless steel frame. Skargaarden's best-selling Djurö Round Lounge Table captures the transitional essence of Scandinavian design with a playful geometric profile and solid wood construction.
While indoor accent tables typically stay put year after year, their outdoor counterparts are built with mobility in mind, easy to move around the patio to capture the sun, or brought indoors during the cold winter months. Ask yourself how often you intend to move the table when shopping for the best option to fit your space.
If the table will probably stay in one place for most of the year, solid teak side tables are an excellent option because they showcase the natural properties of the teak wood and can even double as a stool for additional seating. Gloster's Raw Log Side Table is an exemplary example of this naturalistic approach, maintaining the purity of the Grade-A teak tree from which each unique table originates. Gloster's Block Square Side Table also captures the natural properties of teak in its beautiful end-grain surface.
Those requiring something more portable have plenty of great options. A teak folding side table, like the Safari Folding Table by Barlow Tyrie, is easy to transport and store, an ideal companion for outdoor excursions that can be tucked away when not in use. Slender frames also make for easy movement, as is the case with Garpa's airy Pan Side Table.
Finally, your side table should match the height of the surrounding lounge furniture. Sofas with armrests typically require something taller, like Gloster's Blow Round High Side Table, which features a handmade glazed ceramic base and round teak top. Chaise lounges and sunbeds are typically low to the ground and pair with short tables, like Mamagreen's Ekka Side Table.
