Better Homes and Gardens Lynnhaven Park dinig set

Details of this set

 

The Lynnhaven Park dining set has a variety of seating options.  Having two swivel chairs, two straight back chairs, a bench and a slat top rectangular dining table.  The frames are made from steel with a wood grained powder coated finish to protect it from the outdoor elements.

The rectangular table will have four straight legs, a flat slat type top and a hole in the center for an umbrella.  No lower support for the umbrella.  Table will be 71.5 inches long, 40 inches wide and 28.75 inches high.

All seating has cushions and the chairs have a throw pillow for each.  The pillows are made from a polyester material the cushions have a Olefin fabric cover.  The pillows do not have the best fabric for outdoor use, I would recommend having a storage solution for the cushions and pillows when not using this set.

The swivel chairs do not have a rocking motion like some others, they only swivel.  Both style of chairs have a woven look for the back of the chair, cushions only for the seat.  The seating parts for both styles are the same size at 26 inches deep, 23 inches wide and 35.75 inches tall.  The seat will be 17.75 inches of the ground with the 3 inch thick cushions.

The bench is 50 inches long, 17 inches deep and 16 inches tall with out the 2.5 inch thick cushion.  Each seating position is rated for 225 pounds.

My thoughts on this set, if you are on a tight budget and need dining for six you are on the right track.  This set will cost the least of any in this article, it will last well in the outdoors and will look good.

 

Pros

Multiple styles of seating

Light weight easy to move

Low price tag

Cons

Cushions and pillows need storage when not in use

Some will not like the bench for dining seating

How do I keep my set looking new

A simple solution of mild soap and water will wash off most debris that fall on your dining set.  Any strong chemicals will damage the powder coated finish.  Do not use glass cleaner on the glass tops as this will also damage the powder coated finish.

Cushions and pillows can be cleaned with a wet wash cloths to extend life in the outdoor world.  I have several storage solutions here.

 

What are my final thoughts on these sets

When you have a large crowd to feed, look at one of these 7 pc Patio Dining Sets.  Each has it own best features, some will work for you and some will not.  You will have to look at the details of each set to see what will work for you.

I prefer to have a table without the glass top, I did have one get broken in high wind many years ago.  The table with the split top will allow you to replace only one half if you can match the top.

Seating style is another decision you will have to make.  I like the look of the two swivel chairs and four straight back chairs, this gives several  styles of seating for your guest.
