one of the draws when we bought our house was the amount of outdoor space it has. there is a decent size front yard, 2 side yards, a small back porch {where we keep our bbq}, and a large fenced-in backyard with brick patio space. well the patio has become a catch-all for tables/chairs/kids toys/smoker in the past couple years but this is the year we finally are getting our act together and first up are a quality dining table and chairs. enter joss & main!

we moved in july of 2014 and with all the other expenses of first-time home ownership, we didn’t spend a lot on outdoor furniture. instead we got an affordable table and chair set from ikea that were nice enough looking and served their purpose but didn’t last long. this time we wanted to get something of higher quality to withstand the unpredictable new england weather and after perusing joss & main, i was immediately drawn to this solid teak style table with matching chairs.

i love that the table is plank style but the spaces between them are thin. it’s a beautiful teak color that will naturally age with time {did you know that teak will eventually turn to more of a grey color?!}. however i might get a cover for when the weather is particularly bad as i’d like to keep some of the natural color! the design is perfect for casual dinners outside but can also be dressed up for nicer occasions or used as a buffet or drink table.

BONUS assembly of the table was a breeze! the top is hinged so when winter comes, we can remove the legs and support beams and fold the top right up for easy storage. the chairs are simple but stylish and also fold easily. win win.
