Outdoor Patio Conversation Set

Although a great looking set, it was discontinued, see some of my other conversation sets here.


If you have a place by the water to set up an outdoor patio conversation set, try this set that has the finish similar to driftwood that will work and look great. The Better Homes and Gardens Cane Bay set has that beachy look. The faded wood color reminds me of driftwood and at a fraction of the cost.

New this year and only available from, you can pick up at any local store or have it shipped directly to your home. Walmart does offer some assembly on your patio furniture, ask your local store about these options.

Cane Bay Chair with cushions What do you get in the boxes


You will get three big boxes for your set. The table box is 38 inches long, 27 inches wide, 4.5 inches tall and will weigh 28 pounds. The chair box is 57.5 inches long, 36 inches wide, 10.5 inches thick and will weigh 79 pounds. The bench box is 57.5 inches long, 36 inches wide, 9 inches thick and will weigh 57 pounds. These boxes will not fit in most cars, you will need a pickup or large SUV to get this set home.

The frames are made of wood with a polyurethane finish that will last many years in the outdoor environment with little or no care. The finish is a whitewashed driftwood look. For any area that you want to look beachy, this is the finish you are looking for.

The coffee table has a slat top design with straight legs and one crossbar for lower support. It is not big enough or tall enough for an umbrella. Need to look at offset umbrellas if you want shade with this unit, I have some examples here. The table is 36 inches long, 24 inches wide and 18 inches tall.

The two chairs have a similar design to the table. The seat bottom has wooden slats for the cushions to sit on. The back has an arched design and is tilted back for comfort while sitting. The chairs are 33 inches tall, 32.75 inches front to back and 25 inches wide. The seat is 13.5 inches off the ground without the cushions.

The bench matches the chairs in design. The back is straight across, it still has the tilted back design of the top portion. The bench is 47 inches wide with the same other dimensions as the chair.  Each seating position is designed to hold 250 pounds of weight.

The cushions have an Olefin cover and filling made with a polyurethane foam pad and polyester fiber batting material. This combination is very good in outdoor conditions, I would still recommend a storage solution for long life outside, I have some storage solutions here.  The seat cushions are regular squared cushions about 3 inches thick, the back cushions are pillow type cushions.  The pillows in the picture are not included with this set.

Assembly and care of your conversation set


Cane Bay bench parts for assemblyAssembly of your set will require a Phillips screwdriver and a rubber mallet. When all assembly is done the mallet is used to set the wooden plugs to cover the screws used during assembly for a cleaner look. Now let us get to the steps for assembly. You will need help to rotate the chairs and love seat during assembly.

I will begin with the chairs, make sure you look at all markings and arrows when doing assembly, this will assure that you will not have to remove parts to get the part together properly. The side rails will need to slip onto the seat portion. Lay one arm down and start with the back, center support and seat section, insert each section into the arm and then put other arms on top. Add screws to the second arm and then rotate assembly to add screws to other arm. Do final tightening of screws after the unit is sitting on its legs for best results. Repeat for other chair and you are ready for cushions.

The bench will require similar assembly, just a larger seat portion, and a center back support. Add cushions and you are ready to relax.

The table will require the top to be upside down. Attach one set of legs, center support and then other sets of legs. Do final tightening while on a smooth flat surface for best results.

Care of your conversation set should just be with mild soap and water. Do not use any harsh chemicals as they will damage the painted and finished wood. The cushions should just be wiped off with a damp rage.
