3 Piece Outdoor Patio Set
When looking at a 3 Piece Outdoor Patio Set for your balcony or deck, the Mainstays Dundee Ridge patio furniture set should be on your list. With 2 straight leg chairs and thick cushions for long term sitting this patio furniture will give you a place to relax for hours. Add the glass top table for your snacks and drinks you will not have to leave your sanctuary for a while.
Although this set does not have motion or storage for extra snacks or magazines, it will work well in most outdoor patios. For more small patio furniture selections see my information in this post on the top 10 Bistro sets for the Garden.
The details of this set will follow, let me know if any of this information is not correct so I can make it right.

What do you get in the box
You will get a contemporary looking set with two chairs and a side table. The steel frames will have a black powder-coated finish for a long-lasting finish in outdoor conditions.
The square table will have a tempered glass top and steel lower leg support. Some items can be sat on the lower leg support like reading materials or boxed snacks. Curved legs add to the contemporary look. The table will be 19 inches across and 19.5 inches tall. It will weigh 12.5 pounds.
Each chair will have four straight legs and a back that is very similar in design to the lower support shelf on the table. Although they have no motion, the thick cushions will give you hours of seating comfort.
The chairs will hold up to 300 pounds of butt each, you can have your grandkids on your lap if you are not too heavy and not worry about the chairs giving way. Each chair will be 20 inches wide, 28.5 inches deep and 35 inches tall, they will weigh 16 pounds each without cushions.
The gray cushions will have a polyester fiberfill and Olefin fabric covers. The Olefin material is very good for outdoor patio furniture as it takes outdoor weather conditions very well. I would still have a storage solution to make them last more than 4 or 5 years in mild weather conditions. Staps will help your cushions in place with ties on the seating ones and velcro on the back cushions.
This set will be great for those areas that you would leave your patio furniture out all year round, just store the cushions when not in use for better seating when you need your bistro patio furniture. Set will feature easy assembly, baring any damage in shipping and handling.
Assembly and care of your patio furniture
Assembly will be easy for those with some skills with small tools. Tools needed are included in the hardware kit. Most can do this by their selves, the chairs may need some extra hands to make sure the holes are aligned. I have had some problems with some damage to this type of patio furniture even though the box is not damaged.
Place tabletop upside down, attach a leg to each corner, then attach the lower leg support and sit upright. Make sure that all hardware is started before the final tightening of the hardware, this will ensure the easiest assembly possible.
Chairs will need the sides attached to the seat base and backs. Once all of the hardware is tightened you can add the cushions. The cushions have ties to hold them in place.
When your set has been outside for a little while you may want to clean the dust and other stuff that falls on it. A simple mixture of mild soap and water is all it takes to keep your metal and glass pieces clean.
The cushions should be removed when not in use and placed in a dry storage area to make them last longer in outdoor weather conditions. I have several ideas on storage for patio furniture cushions in articles here.
- Powder-coating for all metal pieces
- Ties to keep cushions in place
- Chairs will hold up to 300 pounds of butt
- Cushions will need a storage solution
- Tabletop may be difficult to replace if broken
- No arms on chairs
