This is an excellent value and a really great looking and comfortable set! I was so pleased to open the box and find I didn't need to assemble the chairs. (the table legs need to be attached, but it's a simple process) I was surprised that they're folding chairs, but they open out easily, don't look like folding chairs, and feel very comfy and sturdy when you sit down. It's a really charming set. Not heavy, which I like, and very well made. I'd been searching for just the right bistro set and took a chance with this one - so glad I did. You won't be sorry!
I bought this set over 3 years ago. It has held up really well and still looks like new. We've had some pretty bad wind storms and the chairs and table have stayed put.
The set is great for a cup of coffee or meal outside on a nice day. I'd definitely buy it again and recommend it anyone.
The table/chairs are a good height and sturdy enough for the price, and they have survived two tornadoes in my area already. Plan to invest in thick cushions to pad the chairs, and possibly a glass top on the table. For now I'm using stone coasters to support my coffee mug so that it doesn't fall through the slats. Great for college/grad students, and much better quality than the outdoor sets of similar price at Walmart/Target/Kmart. Definitely a good investment for me.
For the price the quality is good, I searched for many months to find a quality built bistro set that was reasonably priced that could function indoors as well as outdoors. The research paid off. I have had this set for a little over one year and have enjoyed using it indoors as a dining table in a small 700 sq. ft. apartment, as well as outdoors as a porch feature.
The iron holds up to the elements (due note I now have it in winter storage and it spent only one summer outside, one full year inside). The weight of the pieces is substantial enough to make a strong statement, not blow away in wind storms, as well as be durable for many years to come. There are only a few drawbacks: I recommend adding a seat cover to make seating a little more comfortable, but I consider that pretty normal for hard wrought iron pieces, and it's fun to vary the look of the table with different covers from time to time anyway...and secondly, the slats on the table top are wide enough apart that if you are not careful setting a glass down the glass might tip over. I'd recommend a plastic acrylic custom cut cover to place on the table top, something I have not yet done in one and a half years.
Hope you enjoy as much as I do!
I've had this bistro set over 2 years. It has lasted through two tough Texas summers. The weight is good. My set has never blown over. It remains outside year round. Here's to another 2 years with this set.

Hello chantillylace3, Overstock does not weight test Items; however this type of chair typically holds 200 to 250 pounds.
