Outdoor Wrought Iron Patio Furniture-Mainstays Wrought Iron Bistro set with cushionsMainstays Wrought Iron 3-Piece Outdoor Bistro Set


Price when the article was written: $159.99 with free 2-day shipping


This bistro set is very similar to the set I have at the lake.  With two straight leg chairs and a small table, it will work well for sipping your favorite beverage and a snack while talking to one of your close friends.

The chairs will have a mesh seat and mesh panel for the seatback.  They can be used without the red and white striped cushions if needed, I use mine without cushions all the time.  When it comes time for storage of the chairs, they will stack.  Each chair will support 225 pounds of weight.

Cushions are 20 inches deep, 21 inches wide and 1.5 inches thick.  The cushions will have an Olefin cover with a polyester fill.  The Olefin fabric is one of the best for outdoor fabric, I would still store when not needed.  Ties will hold cushions in place while sitting.

The table will have a mesh top with four legs for support.  The top holes will be small enough to support most drinks without tipping over, you may lose a small snack from time to time though.

This is a great bistro set for small spaces and will last a lot of years outside with little work. My set has been around for over ten years with little work, just one repaint of some little rust spots.


  • Can use chairs without cushions
  • Great for small areas


  • Cushions will need storage when not in use
  • No motion in chairs
  • Only bistro set available in this style

My thoughts on wrought iron furniture with cushions


Outdoor Wrought Iron Patio Furniture-bistro set at the lakeI have several pieces of wrought iron furniture in my outdoor space.  At the lake I have a very similar set to the Mainstays set, I added my own cushions.  We have coffee in the morning and do eat some meals out when the weather is good.  This type of patio furniture is very comfortable with cushions for long term sitting and will last very well in most moderate outdoor conditions.

I do store my cushions indoors when not in use to keep them looking new.  One of the biggest problems I see with customers after they have had their patio furniture for a couple of years is that the cushions need replacing.  I have not had this problem because I do not leave mine out when not in use.  To look at some of my ideas on replacement patio furniture cushions, see my posts here.
