With the summer season fast approaching we thought it would be nice to produce a series of in-depth product features on some of our best selling sets from the Lazy Susan Garden Furniture collection. If you’re undecided on which Lazy Susan garden table is right for you or what will work best in your outdoor space, then hopefully these posts will help you to make the right purchase.
We are kicking things off with one of our best selling sets, the June 6 Seater Oval Garden Tables and the June 4 Seater Oval Garden Tables. This article will take a detailed look at the June range, from spec and dimensions to styling tips and where oval tables work best. And, as we head towards summer 22, this is a format we will replicate across a number of our garden tables and accessories.
So, to summarise, June is a 150 cm x 95 cm oval cast aluminium garden table that is available to purchase as a 4 seater or 6 seater set. It is available in a choice of our Antique Bronze, Slate Grey and White painted finishes.
About our June Oval Garden Tables
Featuring a beautiful lattice tabletop and a classic double-helix border, our June Oval Garden Tables offer a classic design in a modern set. Constructed from high-grade cast aluminium that allows us to combine durability and weather resistance into a table that is sturdy but light enough that it can be picked up and moved.
Much-loved by our customers the June table is the perfect size for 4 people (see above), however, the oval shape allows the placement of 2 additional chairs along each side, so if your hosting requirements or family are greater, then it’s also available as a 6-seater set (pictured below).
Available in Antique Bronze, Slate Grey and White
There is always a high demand for our June table in Antique Bronze, especially during the summer months, as this continues to be our best selling finish. And it’s easy to see why, as the classic black base with subtle bronze stippling will work with all homes and gardens.
However, if you wanted to turn heads and make a real statement then our sleek Slate Grey finish (pictured above) is guaranteed to bring a subtle touch of contemporary sophistication to our classically-styled June range.
Alternatively, our June garden table in White will deliver a little more romantic charm to your garden. And, there’s a good reason why we tipped this colour to be one of the season's top trends in our recent top 20 garden furniture trends for the summer 2022 article. White garden furniture just brings an instant calmness to your garden when paired with a white planting scheme and garden décor.
If you’re still undecided on which colour to purchase, then please order one of our Free Sample Packs and see the different metal finishes.

Why purchase a June Oval Garden Table from Lazy Susan?
We’ve published a number of articles on our Blog that act as a guide to what types (i.e. dining, sofa, swing seat, etc) of garden furniture are best, and many of those also look at the advantages and disadvantages of different materials, styles, shapes, etc.
At Lazy Susan, the best advice we can give is to purchase garden furniture that fits with how you and your family like to use your outdoor space. If you’re lucky to have a large plot, then you could ‘zone’ your patio into different functions such as dining, cooking and relaxation, etc. You could then furnish it with a garden table set and garden sofa for example.
However, if space is limited, then a June Oval Garden Table Set will give you options. You need multipurpose furniture that allows you to perform different functions. You can eat at it and sit and soak up the sun for a few hours. OK, it might not be as comfortable as a Sun Lounger but you try eating a meal with friends and family on a garden sofa/sunbed style furniture. Alternatively, if you don’t like to eat outside, then maybe the outdoor sofa is a better option for your patio?
When it comes to our June Garden Tables, in particular, its popularity is primarily down to its mid-range size (4 or 6 Seater) and the practicality of oval-shaped tables. Size-wise it is the perfect set for a family, and with the average size of a patio in the UK being around 15-20 metres square, it will fit on the space with plenty of room for other items such as a BBQs, planters, etc and that all-important safe “working” space to walk around and let the space ‘flow’ (more of that later).
Why purchase cast aluminium garden furniture?
Our June Oval Garden Tables, like the bulk of our collection, is constructed from high-grade sand-cast aluminium which has numerous advantages over other materials found in our industry. It will not rot, pit or rust and, our durable painted finish will protect the metal from the elements, so it will not fade in the sun and is water-resistant.
The other big advantage cast aluminium has over other materials is that it is extremely low maintenance. No need to store it indoors or cover the set in winter (although I do personally just to keep it clean) and all it needs is a wash down with warm soapy water and maybe a little car wax to give it a little extra lustre and protection. No sanding or painting is needed.
Our designs are timeless and classic, so they won’t go out of style. The traditional sand casting process we use to build them is combined with modern production techniques to ensure the finished product is of extremely high quality. You can find out more about how we make our cast aluminium garden furniture on our how it is made page.
Outdoor furniture made from cast aluminium has numerous benefits over other materials such as wood, iron, resin or rattan:
- It will not pit, rot or rust
- Low maintenance
- Long-life guarantee
- Designed to be left outside all year
- Protective painted finish
- UV & water-resistant
- Easy to assemble
- Safe to ship
- Aesthetically stylish and sophisticated
- Ergonomically designed
- High-quality look, finish and feel
Cast aluminium is, in our humble opinion, the best garden furniture money can buy, and our recent what garden furniture is best for the UK climate article goes into much more detail about why we truly believe that statement.
Why purchase an oval garden table?
Our oval garden tables have always been a best-seller and for good reason. Just as that elongated form works well in a kitchen or dining room, so too does it transfer to the patio and garden. Not only is it an appealing looking shape, but it also has some practical advantages over other shapes.
No sharp corners make it easier to pull up additional seating and squeeze a few more guests around. Those curved edges also help to create the illusion that they take up less space. In terms of actual footprint, there's not that much difference between a rectangular garden table and an oval, however, the curves trick the eye into thinking there is, and although they do reduce the space a little, the overall effect is always a lot greater.
If you’re deliberating what shape table will work best in your garden, then the oval garden tables are a sensible option. They offer the best of all shapes and combine the linear dining-style benefits of a rectangular with the intimacy and flexibility of a round table.
Personally speaking, and I know many of the Lazy Susan team agree with me, oval garden tables tend to fit well on a mid to larger size patio. The June table allows you to create the right scale (not too big but not too small), whilst the oval shape allows for easy movement and flow around it.
Oval shaped tables function well in terms of both informal and formal-style dining, while the rounded edges are great for complementing the curves we often find in our gardens or contrasting against/softening a straight-edged patio/deck.
If you have quite a square/rectangular space, then an oval garden table can often help to soften it whilst still fitting perfectly in it. And if you need to open up a narrow patio or garden, and make it feel bigger, then that slimmer form will create the illusion of space.
Upgrade the garden chairs
The April chair has an intricate metalwork design, featuring overlapping arcs on the curved chair back and a lattice design on the seat. It’s a lightweight chair, weighing in at just 6kg, which makes moving it around easy for adults, and children. Our April chair perfectly complements many different tables from our classic range and is offered as a choice for multiple table sets. To add an instant touch of elegance to your table set choose the April chair, and enjoy al fresco dining at its best.
However, there’s also an option in our shop to upgrade to our Rose, Emma and Kate chairs for an additional cost. If we take our Kate Garden Chair (pictured below) as an example. This is our most substantial model of chair, weighing in at a more sturdy 8kg, it features a wide criss-cross metalwork design that will give you a little more wiggle room.
When we developed our Garden Chair Collection we wanted to create a range that was comfortable, sturdy and designed to stand up to the elements. We wanted to pair style with substance. Create chairs that will enhance the outdoor dining experience and sit on our patios for the next 10 years or more without going out of style.

All of our Garden Chairs and accessories such as Parasols, Lazy Susans, Cushions, etc can be purchased separately in our shop. However, the best deals are to be found when you bundle with the June sets. You will find a gift section (pictured below) on each product page where you can add additional items that will complement your June set with some great discounts of between 30-70%!
How to style your June Oval Garden Tables
Choosing a garden table is a sizeable investment, so it makes sense to do a little research and make a more informed purchase. Take the time to consider your budget, outdoor space and how you like to use it. Our June oval cast aluminium garden tables are guaranteed to bring a touch of style to your garden but they’re also constructed to sit outside and require minimum TLC to keep them looking good for many years to come.
A mid-sized oval table will always make a statement and it will become the main focal point on your patio area. Much like a kitchen inside the home, a garden table is the outdoor component people will gather around. It will create impact and help to soften any harsh edges the space may have. Sitting around such a beautiful garden table will create inclusivity but the surrounding patio and wider garden need to work with it, you want to frame it with planting and emphasise that beauty.
Styling is key to creating a space you want to spend time in and a table you want to use when the weather is fine. All our garden tables feature beautiful intricate pattern-work. They look beautiful on their own but that beauty can be enhanced with a few simple styling elements (as shown in the customer photos above and below). However, the key to styling our June tables is to put your own stamp on them. Make it yours and think of the table as a blank canvas. The more your outdoor space showcases your style and is set up with how you like to spend time in it, the more likely you are to do just that.
Don't be afraid to mix colours and materials when it comes to decorating it, add cushions and garden decor, frame it with tall planting, just remember to choose items that will stand up to the elements and provide year-round interest. If you’re looking for a little inspiration, then the following styling tips will hopefully give you a little food for thought:
- Bring the inside out/the outside in
This is an oft-repeated statement on this blog but that seamless transition really does create a beautiful easy to use space. You want your outdoor space to feel as stylish and comfortable as the inside of your home. Pairing your June table with indoor-style outdoor accessories such as a garden rug, chair throws or table lamp is a great way to achieve this look. Think outdoor room!
- Mix different styles and materials
Don't be afraid to mix things up a little. Pair your June table with a garden bench for a practical stylish twist. Mix different materials to create visual interest. Mix garden decor with planting, metal furniture with stone or timber, introduce outdoor soft furnishings and fabrics just like you would inside your home. Put your own creative stamp on it.
- Style your outside space like a room
One of the hottest patio styling trends in the UK at the moment is to frame the space like a room by a pergola and curtains to create a semi-enclosed space. This will give you privacy and shade from the sun in the summer months, whilst helping to give the patio a distinctly outdoor room feel.
- Think about scale and proportion
This is a subject we covered extensively in our What size garden table should I buy? Article. Getting the balance right between not too small that it looks lost and not too big that it doesn’t function all whilst having a set that works for you/your family is a tricky one. Just remember that you don’t want a space to feel empty. That said if you have a patio, then garden tables and chairs overhanging the space is a big no-no. However, if you’re working with a smaller space a few larger items such as a June set can actually make the space feel bigger. Lots of smaller sized items can make it feel too busy. Less is often more but make sure it fits and there’s space to sit, walk around, etc.
- Zone your patio and outside space
If you’re lucky to have a large plot/patio, then make the most of it by zoning into different functions. Include June in your dining area and then create another zone for relaxation with a garden sofa for example. Maximise the way you use the space.
- Accessories, Accessories, Accessories
As previously mentioned, we offer a range of cushions, parasols, lazy Susans and a variety of chairs in different designs and colours to help you accessorise your June garden table and really put your own stamp on it. However, we would always recommend you take it further. The garden should be an extension of your home, so treat that garden table like you would a kitchen or dining table. Give it a centrepiece.
How to assemble June Oval Garden Tables
Our June Oval Garden Tables are supplied to you as Ready To Assemble (RTA). It is not flatpack in the traditional sense of the word. This is premium quality materials shipped to you in its component parts (tabletop with legs off) and is easy to build. It is securely packaged for ease of shipping but when constructed it has the strength and good looks you want from your outdoor furniture.
We provide clear instructions, parts and tools for the construction of our June set, and all fixings are provided for you in a separate card ‘pop-out’ packet. The video below (and the chaps above) show you how easy it is to assemble our June Oval Tables:
Where you see a crossed through spanner symbol in our instructions, this means that at this stage of the assembly process you should only loosely tighten the bolts in the diagram. Later in the process, when further all pieces are in place, you will be prompted to tighten them using the spanner provided. This is especially important when attaching the legs to a chair seat or tabletop. Finger tighten only at first and then when all four are in place, you can ensure everything is level.
Our easy to build garden chairs article has some great tips that are applicable to all our garden furniture, however, if you do have any questions about assembly, then our Customer Service team are always happy to help.
June Garden Table Specifications & Dimensions
The diagram above shows the recommended floor space we suggest for our June Oval Garden Tables, while the dimensions of the table itself, as found in our shop, are shown below.
The question you need to ask before you buy is do you have the space you need for the table? Space for you to comfortably sit at the chairs and enough left for the patio to still function, i.e. pull the chairs out and walk around safely when people are seated? This is what we referred to above as the ‘working space’ and you can see what we recommend (the light blue 75cm area) for our June set in the diagram above.
It is the space needed for you and your family/guests to comfortably pull chairs out, to sit/get up and freely move around when people are seated. Now the floor space diagram is again just a guide, you may feel you can work with a little less working space for example. As we say, each patio is different, just take these measurements and apply them to the ‘free’ outdoor space you have available/where want the set to fit when used.
Every space is different. There could be planters, a BBQ, fire pit, steps, pizza oven, walls, other pieces of outdoor furniture such as a sofa, different shapes of patio, etc. All factors that need to be taken into account! Our June table on its own is 150 cm long by 95 cm wide (as shown in the dimensions diagram and floor plan). Add onto that 75 cm for the chairs and 75 cm of ‘Working Space’ and you need free space on a patio of 300 cm by 245 cm for that set to work.
Once the set is in place, the patio still needs to 'function' and 'flow', whilst allowing for the number of people you want to sit (4 or 6 in the recommended case of our June table) comfortably around it with enough space for people to safely walk around, etc.

From our beautifully crafted furniture to our standout customer service, we have high standards here at Lazy Susan. That’s why we proudly display over 10,000 reviews, with genuine feedback from verified customers, so you can purchase our June set with confidence.
We have just had our old pond renovated and wanted a comfortable seat so that we could sit and watch the wildlife. We did a good search of the Internet and Lazy Susan's rose garden seat came top of the list. Not only that, it was so reasonably priced, in comparison to some that we saw, we also bought a cushion to fit and a small table on which to place our cups of tea while we wait for the wildlife to emerge.
Had my eye on this garden set for years! When our holiday was cancelled, I managed to persuade my husband to spend some of the holiday money on this. The entire time my husband was putting it together I could hear him saying 'this is a lovely bit of kit' That says it all. We are truly delighted with our purchase. Thank you.
A great company to deal with: friendly, knowledgeable and quick. The goods were very well packed to exclude any possible damage during transportation. The instructions and the assembly are clear and easy, the quality and the sturdiness are impeccable. We are overall very delighted, even with the price, can only recommend.
As always, I am absolutely delighted with the item I purchased from you. Over several years, I have bought six chairs and three tables, and they all still look as fresh as the day I first assembled them. I fully expect the bench I bought the other day will perform just as well. Thank you for a really fine product, which is quick and easy to assemble, and looks stunning.
I love my garden table. Sturdy yet light to move around the garden. And the metal finish means it will always look smart.
Stunning furniture. Easy to assemble and looks fabulous on our new patio. Looks great with or without the cushions and equally comfortable. Excellent customer service and arrived earlier than expected. Highly recommend.
Lazy Susan is a beautiful addition to any outdoor space. It is attractive in design and practical in use. It does not need to be treated or covered. It is also not so heavy that It cannot be moved easily. It gives me great pleasure and I would recommend it to anyone thinking of buying it.
The communication between company and customer was quick and uncomplicated. The design was exactly what we wanted and the items were easy to assemble. The seating is an absolute eye-catcher in our property

Why buy our June Oval Garden Tables?
Our June Oval Garden Tables are just one of the many fabulous sets in the Lazy Susan range. To decide if it’s the right set for you, look at the shapes in your garden, try and work with them rather than fighting them if you’re unsure of what will work. That, or use them to contrast, and make a statement.
Don’t be afraid, buy what fits, and what you like!
It is also important to remember that garden tables aren’t always just about dining too…
We’re drawn to them for many reasons when the sun is shining, from coffee with friends to a spot of crafting with the kids or grandkids.
Once the set is in place, style it just as you would a table inside the home, be creative. Our June Oval Tables are beautiful objects in their own right but you can enhance them with decorative elements such as a cluster of potted plants or outdoor candles.
They should be the main feature on your patio so frame them as such, make it the focal point, the place on your patio or in your garden where your household spends their outdoor time when the sun is shining, be it a morning coffee or evening meal.
When purchasing new garden furniture, be it June or any other piece, consider how comfortable it will be to sit for long periods of time and whether the material it’s made from will get damaged from frequent use?
This is the reason that all our furniture is constructed from cast aluminium. We made that decision from day one. We have tested other materials but cast aluminium just suits the climate, the style of our homes, and how we use our gardens in the UK. It’s a great option as it’s durable, looks beautiful and is designed to stand up to the British weather.
Just remember to measure carefully before you click buy and don't forget that all-important ‘working’ space!
