Conversation Patio Sets


A little different than just a bistro set for your patio, any of these 3 Piece Conversation Patio Sets will give you two seats and a small side table.  The big difference is the size of the table, too small for a meal, big enough for your drinks and a small snack.

Some of the seating pieces will have motion, some will have a lot of modern styles and I will look at one with a retro look.  There is a patio furniture set in this article for the small outdoor space that you can afford on a small budget.

Now, let us look at what look and feel will work best for your patio furniture needs.

This resin wicker chat set will have a lot of style and movement in the chairs.  The steel frames with a powder-coated frame will have a combination of a loose and tight woven resin wicker finish.

Chairs will have swivel bases for some movement and thick cushions for comfort.  Bracket between the chair seat base and round base is a twin steel bar, this will allow a little back and forth motion, not a true rocker.  Each chair will support 225 pounds of weight.

A square top side table will have resin wicker surrounding the tempered glass insert.  Four legs with lower support will keep your table steady.  The table is 20.5 inches across and 19.5 inches tall.

Like the look of resin wicker, don’t like the dark colors that most come in, this set will offer a lighter color pallet for your patio furniture choice.

Straight leg chairs will offer no motion, only seating and back cushions in the same light gray color.  Each chair will support 250 pounds of weight.

Frames will have the same driftwood color powder coated on for outdoor durability in most weather conditions.  A polyethylene cord will give the look of the woven wicker on the sides of the chairs and table.

Cushions will have Olefin fabric covers, one of the best for outdoor furniture.  I would still have a storage solution for them when not in use to make them last more than a few seasons.

Square top table will have a tempered glass insert.  It will be 20 inches wide and 19 inches tall.  Support for the table will be four straight legs on each corner.

This set will work well for those looking for a lighter color that will look like a beach set.  No motion, the thick cushions will give you plenty of comfort for long term sitting.
