Care for your Alexandra Square furniture
It is recommended that you only use a mild soap and water to clean this furniture. Do not soak cushions, if the cushions get wet they will take some time to dry.
I would recommend some kind of storage for the cushions and throw pillows when this set is not in use to extend their life in the outdoor environment. To see some of my storage options follow this link.

I think it is really important to take things into consideration when buying furniture for the outdoors.
Living in Greece, it is very common for people to take a seat outside, be it in their garden or on a balcony, but most people seem to opt for plastic furniture.
Aside from not liking the plastic too much (I find it looks very tacky), it also breaks with the heat over time.
I think a metal set such as this would be ideal, and it looks better too.
I do not think the prices are over the top either. They seem very reasonable for what you get.
Thanks for the info, it is very helpful!
This is very affordable patio furniture. The plastic furniture does not last very many seasons outside. You must protect your cushions from the sun and rain, store them when not needed.
The 4-Piece Patio Conversation Set looks so good. What doesn’t come through on your article is how comfortable this furniture really is. You have to sit in it and then you don’t want to get up!
Comfort is one of the top things most people will be looking for when shopping for patio furniture. Long term sitting comfort will make your decision a great one.
Hi John, the 3 Piece bistro set would be a nice addition to my patio furniture, nice and small. I currently have a large 8-9 seater table set and it is now too large for what we need. Not to mention our deck is converted to an extra room, so we lost the space needed for it. The thing I like least about my current set is that the cushions are required – and that the seats are starting to sag from the kids sitting on the chairs without the cushions sometimes. I will definitely be looking for a future set that will be usable without cushions, but still have cushions you can use for added comfort. Great post!
Having the seating covered in the sling material will give you the best of both worlds. I like the two sets that I have.
All Mainstays Alexandra Square metal patio furniture sets that you showed here are very nice but I especially liked the chaise lounge. Beautiful!
I’m not very handy but it seems like my husband would be able to assemble it easily.
Is there a guarantee for it?
The guarantee is for regular wear and tear for three years. The assembly goes pretty good if it is not damaged out of the box. Sometimes the holes do not align if there is damage in shipment.
This collection comes with a year limited guarantee. Assembly should be easy if the holes align. Sometimes the metal will bend if the box has been dropped and the holes will not align.
Thanks for this article on Alexandra square metal patio furniture sets. We have been looking for some new outdoor furniture. We need something for the small deck so this smaller sized furniture could be idea. Assembly skills. Ohh…. we normally outsource that sort of thing. Can the local handy man do that for us? Its a shame that the cushions need a lot of extra care over winter. Some winter morning have full sun and no wind and would be perfect for brunch with friends. Thanks for sharing.
If you have a local Walmart store, they will assemble you set for you. They may charge an additional fee, depends on the store. No cushions should be just left outside when not in use, it will shorten their outdoor life.
If your assembly skills are not that good, check with the local Walmart store to see if they can assemble the set for you.
Hi John, These are great looking and affordable. It is time to get more outdoor living finally! I’m ready. I had not ever thought of Walmart for something like this- makes sense though.
Walmart has some great prices on patio furniture. They will assemble it for you if you need.
