Mainstays Bristol Springs glass top tableWhat you get in the box


All of the frames are a very durable powder coated steel finished in a matte espresso color.

The four chairs have the steel frames with polypropylene covered polyester sling type material for seating.  The frames are built to have a little movement when sitting. This will add to the comfort while dining.

The material for the chairs will dry quickly when wet and last very well in the outdoor environment.  I have had my sling chair for many years without any problems.

The chairs are  24 inches wide, 28.75 inches deep and 40.5 inches high.  They will support 250 pounds each.

The table has four legs with a round tempered glass top.  The smoked glass top has a hole for an umbrella.  The round support will also have an umbrella support. The table is 40 inches across and 28 inches tall.

This set comes in two boxes.  The chair box is 35.5 inches deep, 17 inches wide and 24.5 inches thick.  It will weigh about 46 pounds.

The table box will be 42.5 inches wide, 43 inches long and 2.5 inches thick, it will weigh about 20 pounds.  Will not fit in most cars, bring a truck or SUV for pickup.

Assembly of the chairs will involve installing two supports, one on the front of the seat sling and one between the arms/legs.  Installing the two arms/legs will will be the only other thing for the chairs.

The table will take turning the top over, installing the four legs and then the support ring.  All screws will have a weather cap to install to keep them from rusting.  Make sure the table in up on its legs when you are doing a final tightening of the screws, this will ensure it will sit level.

Dinig Table Umbrella Four sling chairsMy take on this set


I have a very similar set that has a metal table.  My four sling chairs do not sit outside during the winter, I store them in the basement. I have had a glass top table before.  Mine did get damaged in a wind storm, I left the umbrella up.  Need to protect from wind or other damage.

This set has a lot of great features for this price, under $200 from For this price it is hard to get a bistro set, not a complete dining set.
