What do you get in the box
Your bistro set will come in one box that is 39 inches by 27 inches and 11 inches tall. It will weigh about 60 pounds. You may be able to get into a car or trunk. This set will come in two color combinations, they are two different items make sure you check the color before you order.
The frames will be steel with gunmetal almost black powder-coated finish. The tabletop is clear tempered glass that has a weave looking finish. The table is 24 inches square and 28 inches tall, the height is the same as most bistro sets.
Chairs will have the same steel frames with faux woven Polyresin back and sling-type seat support. The seat portion can be used without cushions, it is not comfortable at all. The chairs are 26 inches deep, 24.25 inches wide and 37 inches tall. The seat is 21 inches wide between the arms and will support 250 pounds.
The cushions will come in two different color combinations and can be reversed if needed. One set will have a gray cushion with white and gray color throw pillows, the other set will have red with gray striped cushions and light gray with red butterfly throw pillows.
Other matching items are available from the Mainstays Alexandra Square collection, look at my article here for more details.
Assembly and care of your bistro set
Assembly will require a Phillips screwdriver that is not included in the hardware pack and Allen wrenches that are included. Some customers had trouble with hole alignment when assembling this set. Do not tighten the screws all the way until all of them are started, this will help with alignment.
The chairs will require the back and seat portions to be connected. The arms are then placed on each side and attached. This is the step most customers had trouble with alignment. Then you are ready for the seat cushions, they have a snap that attaches to the back seat rails to keep them in place.
The table will require the top to be upside down, insert a leg into each corner. Attach the center support and you are finished. Make sure that you do your final tightening while the table is sitting on its legs on a level flat surface for best results when finished.
Customers stated that it took between 45 minutes up to 2 hours for assembly, this time difference could be due to each person’s ability to follow directions or tightening screws before all were started.
The care of your set will be easy. Just a simple mild soap and water will get rid of most debris that will be on your set. Do not use any harsh chemicals, even a glass cleaner, as they will damage the powder-coated finish. Just clean the glass top with a damp rag.
The cushions if left out in the rain will not last very long, I would recommend storing them when not needed. I do have some patio storage solutions here.

One thing I like about the set is it’s small enough to fit anywhere. You mention the chairs not being comfortable without the cushions but is it hard to unfasten and refasten them?
I was thinking about getting the four or five piece set and then seeing if a couple of these would be necessary for a few other guests. What do you think about that or is there a better option?
The cushions have a snap on each side to keep them in place while sitting. Just unsnap them and they are ready to store until they are needed again. This collection does have a dining table and other items, see my post here.
This looks like just the set for me! I have been looking for a small set for my tiny back patio. I thought about enlarging it, but really there is just my son and myself. I actually like the colors as well. Great set and really not too bad of a price. Plus I have a WalMart close to me for pick up!
Some items will ship to your house for free, this keeps you from having to find a proper sized vehicle to pick them up. This Bistro set will be great for the two of you.
