4 outdoor dining tables

For gatherings of two couples or the quintessential family of four, a square dining table is just the ticket for outdoor meals. Designers are creating options in both standard and bar heights and in every material imaginable, from wood and steel to stone, glass and aluminum, often mixing materials in a single design.
