Whilst Alice features a 120 cm diameter table, Mia is a more compact 90 cm round cast aluminium garden table. However, what it lacks in tabletop centre metres, it more than makes up in style and intimacy.
Mia is available in a choice of a 2 seater or 4 seater set (as opposed to Alice which is a 4 or 6 seater set), and the tabletop features a beautiful rounded braid centre with expanding spiral lattice-work (see close up of our white table below). Mia is the perfect compact round table for that sunny corner in your garden.
The other advantage of its small size is that whilst our high-grade cast aluminium makes it feel sturdy, it only weighs in at a very liftable 10kg, so picking it up and moving it into the sun or into the shed come winter is a simple one-person job.
We are sure that you'll enjoy many cosy gatherings or a glass or two with your partner around our Mia table come summer 2022.
However, if you are unsure which shape or size of Lazy Susan garden table is right for you or what will work best in the space you have, then hopefully our Garden Furniture Focus post will help not only introduce you to the Mia Round Garden Tables but give you some helpful advice on how to make a more informed purchase.
About our Mia Round Garden Tables
The Mia Garden Table has been a popular choice of set since it was launched and our website features hundreds of positive customer testimonials and photographs.
Our collection is centred around our design ethos of classically styled pieces constructed to sit on your patio in all seasons. We combine durability and weather-resistant materials into a table that is robust but light enough that it can be picked up and moved if need be.
Our Mia Round Garden Tables are perfect for those looking for a compact family-sized outdoor dining table or those looking for a bistro-style table with a little more tabletop if you like to share a meal outside.
The 90 cm diameter of the table means it has a small patio footprint but it can comfortably accommodate 2 Garden Chairs (as pictured above) or 4 Garden Chairs (pictured below) and it is available in our stylish Antique Bronze, Slate Grey or White painted protective finishes.
Mia is available in Antique Bronze, Slate Grey and White
We are fast approaching our busy summer season and now is the time we see a big spike in demand for our Mia Round Garden Tables. We had that little taste of summer a few weekends back (we even had our BBQ out) but the recent cooler temperatures have reminded us that summer is still a few months off.
However, it has got us looking forward, and now is the time to start looking at purchasing new outdoor furniture. The big advantage of buying now (mid to late spring) is that the furniture you want is more likely to be in stock, delivered and on your patio for the start of the good weather.
Our Mia sets in Antique Bronze continue to be our best selling finish in this range. The classic black base with subtle bronze stipples works with all homes and gardens, regardless of what colours scheme you’re working with.
However, if you wanted to put even more of a modern twist on a timeless design, then our sleek Slate Grey finish (pictured above) combines contemporary sophistication with our trademark classic styling.
Our Mia garden tables also come in our romantic White finish which is guaranteed to bring a little Parisienne chic to your outdoor space.
We tipped this colour to be one of this year's hottest trends in our recent top 20 garden furniture trends for summer 2022 article, and from the customer photo above it is easy to see why.
If you’re still undecided on which metal finish is right for you, then please order one of our Free Sample Packs. As an online retailer, this is the best way to see the quality and colour of 3 metal finishes.

Why purchase a Mia Round Garden Table?
We’ve published a number of articles on our Lazy Living Blog that look in detail at what types of garden furniture are best, and many of those look at the advantages and disadvantages of different materials, styles, table shapes, etc.
At Lazy Susan our often-repeated mantra to customers unsure of which set I right for them and their patio is to purchase outdoor furniture that fits with how they like to use their gardens.
If you like to dine outside, fire up a BBQ or Pizza Oven, then you need an outdoor dining table set such as our Mia. If you prefer just to sit back and relax, then maybe a garden sofa would be a better choice?
If you’re lucky to have a large garden, then you have the option of ‘zoning’ the space into different functions such as dining, cooking and relaxation, etc. You can then purchase pieces to perform each of the functions, such as a garden table set and a garden bench with a coffee table to give you the best of both (as shown below).
However, if you only have limited outside space, you need one quality multipurpose set that can do all those functions. And trust us, relaxing at a Mia Round Garden Table is easier than trying to eat on one of those low outdoor sofas (as beautiful as many of them are).
When it comes to our Mia Tables, they will make the perfect focal point on a round or curved patio. The popularity of this range is due to its compact size of 2 and 4 Seater Sets. The table is not as small as our classic bistro range so is easy to set for 2 or 4 people, however, it is more compact than many of the other 4 and 6 seaters so it won’t take up too much room for those with a small patio or garden.
Why purchase cast aluminium garden furniture?
Our Mia range is made from our high-grade sand-cast aluminium which has a number of advantages over other popular materials found in the UK outdoor furniture industry.
Is it designed to not rot, pit or rust and, our durable painted finish protects the metal from the elements, so it will not fade in the sun and is water-resistant.
The advantages of cast aluminium are well documented in our blog but it is extremely low maintenance compared to other materials. You don’t need to store it inside or cover it in the winter (although I do personally just to keep it clean) and a little wash down with warm soapy water and maybe a little car wax will keep it looking like new.
The design-ethos of our furniture is centred around giving customers a timeless classic in a modern package. We offer pieces that won’t go out of style. Our traditional sand casting technique is combined with a sophisticated protective finish that creates a high quality and highly durable piece of outdoor furniture.
You can find out more about how we make our cast aluminium garden furniture on our how it is made page.
When Michael Scott started Lazy Susan he selected cast aluminium as our core material after much research as it was a great all-rounder for the UK climate and it had a number of advantages over wood, iron, resin, rattan, etc:
- 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 opinion, the best material in terms of both durability and value for money. Our recent what garden furniture is best for the UK climate post looked in detail at the pros and cons and why we feel it is the perfect material for gardens that can see all 4 seasons in one day!
Why purchase a compact round garden table?
Our Mia Round Garden Tables have always been a very popular choice.
The big advantage of a compact round table over other shapes is that because there are no corners, they have a smaller patio footprint but plenty of tabletop space for 2-4 people to dine in comfort (as shown above).
A compact round table is perfect for semi-formal and relaxed style dining as all guests are facing each other with equal spacing, helping to let the conversation flow and sharing food and drinks.
Mia is the perfect choice as a focal point on a smaller patio and will ensure a more intimate experience (as shown in the photo below).
If you’re unsure of which shape table, then our round garden tables are perfect for creating good ‘flow’, in other words, free space for people to walk around and get to their seats with ease.
Upgrade the garden chairs with your Mia set
All of our Mia Garden Table Sets come as standard with our April Garden Chairs (shown above).
April features an intricate traditional metal-work design with overlapping arcs and a gently curved back with a lattice-work seat. Weighing in at just 6kg, it’s a lightweight chair that is easy to pick up and pull in and out.
There’s also the option with each Mia set to upgrade to our Rose, Emma or Kate chairs (as pictured below).
When we designed our Garden Chair Collection, the aim was to create a range that combined comfort, stability, weather resistance and classic design.
Our chairs won’t go out of fashion, are ergonomically designed, and designed to fit with the style of UK homes and gardens.
Save on accessories when you purchase a Mia Garden Table Set
As well as the option of upgrading the Garden Chairs with our Mia Round Garden Table, you can also add a range of bundle deals to your basket such as Parasols, Lazy Susans and Outdoor Cushions, with discounts of 30 - 70% off RRP.
You’ll find details of these bulk savings in the gift sections (as shown below).
How to style a Mia Round Garden Table
As with any big-ticket purchase, we all like to do a little research before we buy, and new garden furniture will work best if you choose a set that fits your lifestyle.
Take a little time to consider your budget, outdoor space, how you like to use your garden and measure up before you click add to basket and checkout.
A compact round garden table such as our Mia collection will help to make a statement and focal point on your patio. The soft curves will deliver visual impact and can help to soften any sharp lines a space may have.
You want a garden table that fits into the surrounding patio/wider outdoor space but doesn’t look lost. It should draw the eye (and you) outside and invite you to sit and use it.
The best way to do that is to frame it, emphasise it and style it… Styling is key to creating an outdoor space that you and your family will love spending time in.
All our garden tables feature beautiful intricate metalwork. They look beautiful on their own but they can be made even more inviting with a few simple styling touches and accessories.
The key to styling our Mia garden tables is to put your own personal twist on them. Make it your own just like you would a table inside your home. The more your outdoor space showcases your style and is set up with how you like to use it, the more you will do just that.
Add outdoor accessories such as Planting, Garden Cushions, Garden Rug, Outdoor Accessories, and Lighting will bring it to life like you would a room inside the home.
Frame the garden table with tall planting or an outdoor structure such as a pergola to further enclose the space for privacy, shade and relaxation.
Good scale and proportion are key to creating a space that not only works well in terms of flow but looks good. We looked at this subject in our what size garden table should I buy blog article.
Achieving a balance between a garden table that is not so small that it looks lost and not so big that it doesn’t leave enough room for you to move around is vital.
If you have a small garden then a few larger items such as a 4 seater Mia set can help to strike that balance and make the space feel bigger than packing it with smaller pieces.
The table itself is not so big that it will dominate but when paired with 4 chairs it will create the impression of a small space looking and feeling bigger.
If you have a large patio/garden then the best option it is to ‘zone’ it into different functions. You could pair our Mia set with a garden bench and have zones for eating and relaxing. Look at how you can maximise the way you use your garden.
When it comes to those finishing styling touches, we offer a range of garden cushions, parasols, Lazy Susan turntables, etc to help you finish the look.
Your garden table should function as an extension of your home, be a joy to sit at, and a place you want to spend time when the weather is fine.
How to assemble our Mia Round Garden Tables
Our Mia Round Garden Tables are shipped as Ready To Assemble (RTA). This is not flatpack in the traditional sense of the word. This is premium quality materials shipped to you safely and efficiently with the legs off the tabletop.
All our furniture is simple to build. It is securely packaged for ease of transport but when constructed it has the strength and good looks you want from quality garden furniture.
We provide clear instructions (above), parts and tools for the construction of our Mia sets, and all fixings are provided for you in a separate card ‘pop-out’ packet.
The video below shows how easy it is to assemble our June oval garden table, however, the same process applies to our Mia tables.
The following video shows the assembly process for our standard April garden chairs:
When you see the crossed through spanner symbol, this simply means that at this stage of the process, you should only finger-tighten the bolts. When all in place, you should then fully tighten with the spanner provided. This is to ensure that table or chair legs are fitted level and in the correct position.
Mia Technical Specifications & Dimensions
The diagram above shows the recommended floor space we suggest for our Mia Round Garden Tables, while the dimensions of the table itself, as found in our shop, are shown in the illustration below.
The main question you need to ask before you buy our Mia set, is do you have the space?
Our Mia is a 90 cm diameter Round Garden Table.
For you to comfortably sit 2 or 4 Garden Chairs you need another 75 cm of space around the table.
We would also recommend a further 50 - 70 cm of ‘working space’ so that you have room to pull chairs out and safely move around when people are seated.
All this is shown in the diagram above.
However, please note, that this is just a guide, you might think you can work with less, especially if you are using Mia as a 2 seater only.
The table could even be tucked in a corner or against a wall in this situation.
Every patio is different, so measure carefully and apply the above to the ‘free’ outdoor space you have available and see if the set will fit and function.
Make sure you take into account any other patio items such as large planters, a BBQ, fire pit, pizza oven, walls, steps, other pieces of outdoor furniture such as a sofa, different shapes of the patio, etc.
If need be, draw it to scale on a piece of graph paper to help you visualise and plan the layout.
Our Mia tables have a diameter of 90 cm. Add on the 75 cm for garden chairs and 75 cm for ‘Working Space’ and you need approximately 3.6 - 4.5 m² of free space give or take on your patio.
This sounds a lot, but the average size of a patio in the UK is around 20 - 25m², so you can see why Mia is a popular choice for those with smaller patios and balconies, etc.
Mia Shipping & Delivery

What our customers are saying about Mia
With hundreds of positive customer reviews, Mia is one of our best selling sets. Here are a few examples of what people have been saying about our furniture:
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
