If you’re the type of host that wants to go with an summer outdoor dining set that is rustic yet unique, then the Vinegard is the ideal outdoor entertaining set for you.

An Outdoor Sofa for Any Space - Monte Carlo Lounge Collection

Monte Carlo 1-,2- and 3- Seater Sofas (Black Linen), Monte Carlo Reclaimed Teak Coffee Table (with daybed cushions), Monte Carlo Reclaimed Teak Side Table

The Monte Carlo Collection is a the perfect seating choice for all types of outdoor areas. Made of Reclaimed Teak, like the Vinegard Table, it’s low maintenance yet rustic and welcoming. It’s extremely versatile and can be easily rearranged to accommodate any space, while maintaining its distinctive style and comfort.

A great example: the 2-Seater can be paired up with the coffee table and be used as a daybed with the optional extra cushions, allowing for maximum comfort and relaxation. Alternatively, with the cushions, the coffee table can be used as another place to sit. Whether freestanding or up against a wall, you can now have more friends and family in the same area, without sacrificing more space.

The Side Table is a great piece to place drinks or platters on. It’s also, like the coffee table, another seating/lounge option. With the extra cushions, it can be pushed up against any of the lounges as an ottoman, or separately as another seat for your guests.

Another excellent feature of the Monte Carlo is the optional upgrade to quick-dry cushions. Quick Dry Foam technology is perfect for a non-covered outdoor entertaining or one next to a pool, as the foam inside the cushions absorbs significantly less water, and it expels water much quicker if made wet.

A final note...

When it comes to choosing an outdoor entertaining set, there are many different options to choose from. The best part is, you get to choose your outdoor summer setting based on your taste, lifestyle, and what you think would suit your home best. 

Your outdoor furniture should be durable and last you a long time, but not sacrifice on comfort and style, which is why Woodbury Furniture only uses the best available ‘A-Grade’ teak and weather-resistant materials.
