Love this small bistro set for my deck. I did spray polyurethane to protect it after assembly, and I often use a cushion on the chair seat for more comfortable relaxing, but a great bargain and much less than similar products at major stores.
We bought this set for a screened in porch. The smaller dimensions of this table and chairs provides seating while also allowing for good traffic flow. We had a bit of an issue putting together one of the chairs as the posts on the chair back did not align with the holes on the seat bottom. My husband was able to widen the holes to get them aligned. He also suggests using your own tools rathe than the ones provided. Now we can have breakfast on the porch in the AM and a place to sit and ponder nature at night. I agree with one reviewer that the chairs are not overly comfortable but they serve the purpose and look great.
For the price, this set is decent. the iron legs make the chairs and table seem more sturdy than not which is a plus given that the set is mostly aluminum. There is one issue that has been mentioned in previous reviews which is that one of the backs of the chairs have pegs that attach it to the seat which don't actually line up with the holes in in the actual seat part. We had to extend the holes via drilling into the sides of said hole in order to get the pegs to fit. The manufacturer should really sort this problem out.
This Christopher Knight Copper Bistro Set was everything that I hoped it would be. It is of very high quality, is very sturdy in addition to being so attractive and quite comfortable to sit on. I read all the reviews and so learned why it is aluminum and wrought iron both. Being an outdoor set, I found it surprising when the slip enclosed stated not to put in direct sunlight or in inclement weather. My patio will subject it to both!! Yes I would recommend this set to a friend.
This was my second purchase from Overstock and both times I had to wait on parts. I don't think it is a great deal to get and not be able to use for over a month....I would rather pay a little more and be assured of quality. However slow, they did get the parts to me after several contacts!
I would recommend to a friend as long as you know what you are buying. Parts of this set are very heavy while others are very lightweight and plastic. When you put it all together the set looks great. But I was a little concerned when looking at the individual parts. I suspect this is an anomaly, but one of our chair backs wasn't rounded enough to fit into the seat, however, I had someone much larger than me manage to bend it into place after some effort.
Excellent quality, easy to put together and perfect for poolside with a drink and an umbrella... there is a hole in the middle of the table for an umbrella as I found on my deck it was just too sunny most of the time.. sitting under an umbrella (maybe 6 ft round only) with an iced tea watching the kids swim and being right next to water is a great feeling.. just what I was trying to achieve with this set.. I wish the table was just a little bit bigger and I had to put a piece of round glass over the table because glasses tend to tip due to the swirly design on metal leaves kind of bigger areas on the table for glasses to tip. But now with the round glass over the table and an umbrella, its perfect.
This set fit the space on my front porch perfectly. It was easy to assemble. I like the fact that it has weight to it so the wind does not blow the chairs down. I'm very pleased with it with one exception, at the base of the table, there are signs of rust after having put it outdoors for a couple of weeks. Considering how inexpensive this lovely set was, I don't mind having to give it a coat of paint.
I have always wanted a bistro set. My desire is to go to Italy one day and set outside an Italian bistro or wine shop and drink wine while people watching. This set looks like it belongs outside of an Italian eatery. The curves of the legs and design in the back of the chairs are perfect.It was easy to put together, it's not too heavy but heavy enough. I just recently remolded my outside patio and had been looking for a bistro set for some time but was unable to find exactly what I wanted at a reasonable price. Thankfully I checked out Overstock.com and there was the perfect set at a very reasonable price.
The bistro set is perfect for the corner of my front porch. It's not too bulky so it fit great. The legs on the chairs and table are very sturdy. The look of the set is very nice too. I wish the nuts that attach the table and chairs to its legs weren't silver. They really stand out so I will probably paint those. The color of the set is right on. Great buy, wonderful customer service from Overstock as always.
