What do you get in this design


The Mainstays Forest Hills collection has a steel frame that is has a dark brown powder coated finish.  The finish if cared for properly will last many years. The table tops are made from shatterproof tempered glass and have a clear pebbled finish.  If you need more information on the area rugs for outdoor areas that are shown in the photos, look at my information here.

Seating cushions are about 4 inches thick, the back cushions are about 3.5 inches thick and have buttons in the middle.  The fabric is a polyester material that will last very well in the outdoor environment with the proper care.  The cushions are reversible and the bottom cushions are attached with straps, all red cushions have a stripe design on reverse side.  None of the throw pillows in the pictures are included in these sets.

Chairs in this set will come assembled.  Chairs with straight legs will stack for storage.  Tables will require a little assembly.  Chaise lounge and swing will require a little time and skills to assemble.  A Phillips screwdriver will be the only tool that will be required that is not included in each piece.

Care of your Forest Hills Collection


Care of your outdoor patio furniture should be just a simple wash with a mild soap and water.  Do not use a glass cleaner on the table top, as some of these cleaners have harsh enough chemicals to damage the powder coated surfaces.

Cushions should be stored out of the weather if not used for any length of time.  This will help keep the color and you can use directly after a rain.  Look at some of my storage examples here for patio areas.

Priced at the time of this article from $330 to $349


This conversation set with the four motion chairs and cushions will be very comfortable for sitting around have talking about your day with a few drinks and snacks.  The large round table will be able to hold drinks and snacks for all.

The chairs will require a little assembly.  You will have to attach back with seat to the leg frame section for each chair.  After this you will just have to add cushions that are available in red, tan and teal colors.  The spring design will give a rocking motion.  I have similar chairs on my patio and they are very comfortable for long term sitting.

The chairs are 26 inches wide, 31.75 inches deep and 32.75 inches tall.  Each will hold 250 pounds.

Table is 40 inches across and 18 inches tall, it is like having a big round coffee table.  The glass top is built in and the table will require a small amount of assembly.

No hole is provided for an umbrella, this table is too short to support one.  If you would like to look at shade options like an offset umbrella, see some of my suggestions here.

This set will come in two large boxes that will require a large SUV or pickup to transport.  The chair box is 45 inches long, 27 inches wide, 30 inches tall and will weigh 63 pounds.  The table box will be 42 inches square, 3 inches tall and will weigh 38 pounds.

For larger dining areas outside the 5 piece dining set will seat four and have a larger table for plates for a meal.  Not large enough for a buffet or to sit your entrees on, it is big enough to sit and eat.

The four chairs are of the same design and color combinations as the bistro set.  If you have a big patio area you could have both in the same area to have matching furniture.

The table is of the same design, it does have the hole in the table top and a center support for an umbrella.  The table is 38 inches square and the same 28 inches tall.  The glass top is built into this table also, it does have a built in plastic ring for umbrella support.  Don’t forget to take the umbrella out during windy conditions to keep your table top from damage.  Matching umbrella is available below.
