Mosaic Patio Table - A Growing Trend for Bistro and Dining Tables!

A trend in outdoor furnishings that bears roots in Ancient Greece and Rome is the incorporation of a mosaic patio table.

And the trend is growing. In fact, if you are looking to buy a mosaic table for outdoor use, the range begins with an accent table and spans to a large scale dining table. Included in the mix, and adding great design to small spaces, is the mosaic bistro table.

Since mosaic table tops tend to be hand-made you can expect to pay a fair price. There are some outdoor furniture manufacturers that sell fully assembled mosaic patio tables, and these include the full table (top and base). Bases are often made from materials like iron and aluminum that are then powder coated and weather resistant. If you are looking to buy a mosaic table top only, these are also available.
