Based on the positively glowing reviews for this set and the fact I needed a relatively small patio set, I excitedly ordered this, anticipating to be as happy with the quality as the other reviewers. Upon arrival I was pleased that it looks great and no one would argue, aesthetically, it's probably the creme de la creme of folding sets. But immediately upon set-up I discovered the pulled and woven 'rattan' would not be ideal for my intended use and I genuinely worry that a high wind will knock this table over unless folded up each and every night. Very little heft to the set. (My 63 yr old teeny tiny mother can pick up the table, folded or unfolded and move it around like it's as light as a box of tissue.) And for drinks? Goodness, my glass wobbles so much that even with a coaster you can literally see the glass shake to and fro for several seconds as the weave is not taut enough. The table itself sits flush, it's just the woven nature of the table top is NOT ideal if you plan to use it for your evening happy hour. Another reviewer placed a glass top of this table and I'd highly recommend that if planning to use this daily, as I do. If you're hoping for something a bit more permanent feeling for your patio and you plan to eat/drink--meaning actually USE the darn thing--I'd skip this for something more substantial. The chairs are comfortable and low profile but definitely not styled for the overweight or tall folks amongst us. For me, this is a case of style over function and if you can compromise, it's lovely.
This product was better than imagined - the construction is more heavy-duty than it looks in the photo: good thing too as this is being placed in a high-traffic area at work in a public place. The finish is also very well done - v satisfied!
First of all you should know there is no assembly required. This bistro set is just as cute as the site's picture and very sturdy. It folds easily for storage and even makes a nice extra table for indoor functions. So far, it has stood up to mixed weather. Very pleased!
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Looked exactly the same when receiving.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Chairs are very sturdy, wicker does not unravel.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Arrived as described.
This set is nicely styled but, as others have mentioned, the table top is built on cardboard. I don't anticipate getting it wet but it could use either sturdy reinforcement underneath or plastic or glass over the top. It's worth what little I paid for it.
The quality of this little set is excellent. I was looking for something to use on a small deck, and this is perfect. The chairs are sturdy and comfortable and everything folds up easily for storage. I would love to order some extra chairs to go with the set.
We have a tiny apartment, so space is always an issue. This set was exactly what we needed to enjoy our balcony, but also be able to easily store the table and chairs. The quality is excellent and you can't beat the price. Other sets, in stores don't even compare!
