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.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very accurate
I was very pleased to read the reviews on this product before I ever purchased it. When it arrived, it was, as I had read, not the white color depicted in the ad, but more of a sandy beige. Very beautiful. I assembled the table and my daughter assembled one of the chairs. I am not one to tackle assembly projects...so the fact that I could do it, well, anyone can do it. It went very easily...one of the really great things about this set is that it includes extra materials. So there is never a case of, "Oh no, I am short one bolt or screw." However, there was one glitch. On one of the chairs, the bolts from the back of the chair were about 1/2 cm too far apart for the holes in the seat. Since the set is very solid, as much as I tried leaning on the back of the chair to try to bend it just enough to get the bolts to fit, I could not get the bolts to fit into the holes. I did not intend to disassemble my other chair and table and ship the set back. And, I was dreading what I thought was going to be a big hassle to try to get a replacement part.... I called Overstock's customer service. Wow!!!!! What GREAT SERVICE!!!!! First of all, the phone was answered very quickly by an actual person who listened very carefully to what I was saying, and almost immediately ordered the replacement part for me and arranged shipment via ***. I now have a very beautiful and, I have to add, surprisingly comfortable (for a metal set with no cushions) bistro outdoor set. I always have known that Overstock was a great company for value and quality of merchandise, but until this order, never realized how good their customer service was. Excellent purchase and experience, with the product and with the service!!!!!!
The design is lovely and I am happily using the set. Being said that, there are some issues too. It took over 2 hours for a guy to assemble because the holes did not align. With this quality control issue, the assembled chairs do not level well, though not too bad. The color is muted so it should go well with many color scheme.
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.
