If you are looking for a more colorful disposition, pair your white dining table with chairs in earthy coral, vibrant teal or rich plum. Select a rug with a bold geometric pattern and some eye-catching metal wall art. Complement this look with landscaping or potted flowers that picks up on the color family you are highlighting.
Dark Metal Patio Sets with White Cushions

Otherwise all-weather materials can be washed down with the garden hose and spot cleaned when necessary.
