Just had the set for two months. Was expecting very light furniture for being cast aluminum. They were heavy aluminum and to make sure they were not cast iron, I tested them with a magnet. The set came in several pieces so there is quite a few screws and nuts to put together. Be careful with the connecting bolts as they are sharp where they have slots for a tightening with a screw driver. If you are planning to buy some cushions, note that although 2/3 of the seat has a diameter of 15&3/8", where the back rest is mounted, the open diameter is only 14&5/8" .
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Color on site appears ligther (whiter) than the actual product. The color is more of cream or light vanilla (see off -white colors from wikipedia) and it is stone finish.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very elegant and sturdy.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? The chairs overall seat diameter is15&3/4" and the seat area itself is 15&3/8" dia. .
Easy to put together. Went fast. Very strong, solid metal. I am very happy with this set.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Color is darker...closer to a sand when it is wet...darker flecks in the taupe background. I actually like this color better than the picture.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very well made. Solid.

i wanted a bistro set for my back yard. it's a cast aluminum, and according to my experience should withstand the elements for long time. (i.e. sun, rain and a lot of snow). easy assembly, good design and even better price.
This did not turn out to be the best purchase for what I wanted it for - the front porch (without the table) but I will use it in the back yard as a set. The color is a dark sand - tan, I wanted something lighter. They put it on sale about a week after I bought it - bummer! It is a pretty set though and I will use it.
Put this together fairly quickly by myself. It was easy enough. One hole was drilled wrong so the bolt didn't fit properly. It is made in China ( of course). It looks pretty good. As many other reviewers have said, the color us off. It is not an off white but rather a light beige. Hopefully it will hold up to the elements.
