Indoor/Outdoor Stain?

I built an octagon table of cypress to go between two Adirondack chairs on the deck. Now, SWMBO thinks maybe she wants to put it in the living room instead. That's far more gratifying than if I built it for the living room and she decided to put it outside. But, I still think it will end up outdoors someday. The rest of our living room furniture is pretty dark, and the cypress is very blond like pine, so I'm thinking of staining the cypress, but not putting any varnish or other sealer over it. Then, if it ever goes outdoors, I can apply the Cabot barn-red opaque deck stain to make it more or less match the chairs. Am I messing up? What say ye, finishing experts?

I'm reposting because Google didn't post my question for a full 24 hours and it got lost in the old posts. I know some of you have answers. Please see my question below.
Thanks
