I purchased this set to put in a corner by my pool where deck space is tight. Have been using it for a few months now.. it is good quality, and great looking. Took my husband about 1 hr to put it together. The weight is heavy enough that I dont have to worry about strong wind blowing it around. The color looks black in dim light ~ ~ in bright sunlight you can see the brownish/bronze tones. The seats are comfortable enough to sit for a cup of coffee, or quick meal.. (they are not for lounging or getting comfy with a good book.) I was surprised that there was an umbrella hole in the table and stand in the base. I had'nt planned on using it with an umbrella, but tried it with a 5 foot beach umbrella - and it looks fabulous!! The back corner of my pool area used to be an empty corner. Now its a destination!
The Charleston Table and chairs was an excellent choice for me. The bronze is a perfect match, it is heavy and looks wonderful where I have it. I also had a piece of glass cut which was cut at 221/2 inches round and the edge polished. I am very happy with this perchase and hope to buy another. I would recommend this table to anyone along with the purchase of anything else from this site.Great product. !!! : )
For the Price, I can not complain about the quality and it arrived quickly. However, the color description is way off and it does not match my other outdoor furniture. I intend to Gift it to a Friend. If you want large seats, I would suggest another set.This one is great for limited space.

The set arrived packed securely. The material is sturdy, heavy and feels good to the touch. Also the design has curves in the right places, which makes the set not only attractive but also more functional. I like the bronze color too it has a bit of gold hue in it. Not too overwhelming though, just a touch of gold. The assembly is not that difficult and you can put it together in an hour or so. I ordered it for my balcony in my condo and know I will enjoy it. Keep in mind the set is not very large it would fit a normal balcony nicely though. I recommend it.
I gave this set a good rating because I was disappointed with two aspects of it. 1- the screws and other hardware to put this together ( some of them show) are all silver finish. They really stand out against the dark finish. 2- the finish overall on this set is not really bronze, but black with a few lighter spots (very few). From a distance, it just looks black. It does sit well, and was not difficult to put together.
Good product for the price. Not a great piece for lounging, but nice accent piece and extra patio seating for social events. Not a standard sized base for umbrella stand. The legs are tentatively balanced on our current base; so, we have to buy another base. Too unstable to hold umbrella without one.
I really like this Copper Bistro set. It is great for a small area.

This bistro set is a great size for our deck. Sturdy construction and weighs enough to sit solidly. For longer sitting I'd recommend a small/thin cushion but due to rainy weather we do not use cushions on the chairs. It is holding up fine in our often rainy weather in an unprocted area of a deck.

I bought this bistro set for my daughter and I was initially very pleased with the quality. I know this was a recent purchase and was kept for a month outside on the porch, then was moved into the kitchen. I was shocked and disappointed that my daughter just told me that the chair had cracked on the seat portion near the left leg. I didn't expect this to happen and would have expected that this set would have lasted at least 2-3 years. I would not recommend this to any other person. I am guessing that is was a manufacturing defect, so would not buy this product again.

Although it's a beautifully styled set, I found the chair backs very uncomfortable. Prior to that, though, my consternation began in the chair assembly when I found that the threaded post of one of the cast aluminum chair backs (manufactured in China) had apparently been been broken off and re-welded. Unfortunately, the post placement did not match the corresponding opening in the seat and made assembly impossible without a lot of work on my part to enlarge both holes to allow the threaded posts of the chair back to fit the two openings in the seat. Now my concern turns to the overall strength of the joint since I had to modify the union of the two pieces by enlarging the two holes. I'm not a big believer of products made in China or the quality control shown for this product.
I love this set! I have a new flagstone patio, and this is exactly what I hoped to find. Nobody mentions that the seat is contoured. A nice surprise and very comfortable for an outdoor set. All three pieces are lightweight and easy to move around. I'm 72, so I did not want to have a large table to move around. When I have a garden party next spring I will put a table-round over the table to expand it for additional seating.
