Add the timeless character of wood to your outdoor living space with minimal effort. Here are eight of our current favorite wood accent tables and stools (many of which can be paired with tables and benches of the same set). Use them to hold drinks, or pull up as extra seating when you need it. While some woods will offer a rich patina when exposed outdoors, it is recommended to protect solid wood from significant humidity and temperature changes.
