Cosco Outdoor Retro Nesting Bistro Set
Looking for a patio bistro set and have a narrow outdoor space, like a balcony, you will like this nesting bistro set. The chairs will fit snugly under the table when not in use.
This metal set will have a retro look that will match many older outdoor decors. Many people who have a smaller outdoor space look at bistro sets for a solution. This set will work well if your space is used for other activities and you do not have additional outdoor storage areas.
Now lets look at the details on what you get with this three piece bistro set.
Price when article was written: $210.99 for Teal
$359 for Gray
What do you get in the box
In the box you will get an oval table and two chairs. No cushions are included in this set. The chairs will sit all the way under the table when not needed.
The all steel frames will be powder coated in one of two colors, Teal or Gray. The Teal is cheaper at $210.99.
The top of the table will resemble a wooden slat top table with the design. A single post will connect the oval top and oval base. Table is 40 inches long, 19 inches wide and 29.5 inches tall, about the same size of most coffee tables.
Chairs have the same slat design on the seats and back. The seat is flat and the back is curved to help with comfort. No cushions are included. Chairs are 21 inches wide, 30 inches high and 21.5 inches deep.
Seat is 16.75 inches deep and 19.5 inches wide for those who need to add cushions. If you want back cushions also they will be 14.5 inches wide and 17.5 inches tall. Adding cushions will give you more comfort and longer sitting time without numbutt. See some of my cushion ideas here.
Set will nest together when not in use, it will take up just 44.5 inches by 21.5 inches of floor space on your outdoor floor space. This is just over the size of a regular coffee table.
This set is perfect for those who like the retro look and need a very compact set because of space.
Assembly of your bistro set
This set will come in one box that will weigh a little under 60 pounds. It will not be very heavy, just big and awkward.
Assembly will be taking the set out of the box and throwing away the box and packing materials, you will be ready to use your patio nesting bistro set in minutes after you receive it.
Just add your favorite adult beverage and some cushions, you will be ready for years of enjoyment.
Care of your patio furniture
Use only a mild soap and water to clean your bistro set. Powder coated finishes can be damaged with most household chemicals even a mild glass cleaner. If your paint begins to peel, you will get a rusty finish shortly. A repaint may be needed at this point.
Having a cover for your set when the harsh weather hits will prolong the life of this set. For my patio furniture covers ideas, see my post here.

What are my final thoughts
Smaller spaces is where this set will work best. A balcony that is narrow 5 foot or less will be where this nesting bistro set work the best. I like the fact that it will store in just the area of a regular coffee table and expand to let you have a full meal with drinks.
