Finding seating for your patio should not be a hard journey.  I will give you 4 outdoor patio conversation sets that will cost less than $500.  If this is too much money I do have another article on sets that are less than $300.  Having a small area that has a focal point of a fire pit or a water feature will make this area so much more comfortable.

All of these sets will have seating for four and a coffee table for food and drinks.  Now lets take a look at these four sets and see if one will fit your outdoor decor.

Pricing for some of these sets have gone up since I wrote this post, please use following link for current pricing.

If you like the look of resin wicker, this set will work well for you.  The steel powder coated frames will be covered with woven resin wicker.  The seating will have thick Olefin covered cushions for long term sitting comfort. The glass top coffee table will have a shelf for reading storage.

The seating items will look like living room furniture.  The stately look of the arms and buttons in the cushions backs will look like expensive furniture.

The table will have a frosted glass top with a wicker shelf and skirts.  The table is 40 inches long, 20 inches wide and 18 inches tall.  The glass top is an insert and can be replaced if broken.  Assembly will require the top to be upside down, attach the four legs.  Then you will need to attach the shelf to the legs then the skirt.  If you do not have help this process will be very frustrating tying to hold things in place and getting the next item on.

Better Homes and Gardens Oak Terrace seat strapsThe chairs are 27 inches wide, 32 inches deep and 35.5 inches tall.  the seat is 23.25 inches wide and 23 inches deep.  The love seat is the same, just 50 inches wide for two butts.  Assembly of the seating will require the arms to be attached to the back.  The next step is the seat and front skirt piece.  Without some help this step will be very difficult as the arms and back are very limber.  Once this is all together tighten the screws and add cushions.

The cushions are 4.75 inches thick for your comfort.  The fabric is an Olefin material that last very well in outdoor conditions.  Polyester is used for the pillow fabric and stuffing.  Even though this fabric is rated for 800 hours of outdoor use, I would still store the cushions when not in use to extend their life.  The cushions are supported by plastic straps.

This is a great set for that wicker look and glass table top.  This set ships in one box that is 34.5 inches wide, 47 inches deep and 30 inches tall.  It will weigh 143 pounds, you will need help and a large pickup or SUV.

 

Pros

 

Glass top can be replaced

Rich look of wicker

 

Cons

 

Some people had trouble with assembly

Cannot use seating without the cushions

Another steel framed with resin wicker set with the seating pieces having a full top to bottom wicker look.  The seating cushions for the backs will have a stripped design, will include two throw pillows and two lumbar pillows.

The table will have a tempered glass top that is painted.  A shelf for reading storage is included.  It will be 39 inches long, 22 inches wide and 17 inches tall.  The glass is an insert and can be replaced if broken.  Assembly will require the top to be upside down to attach the two end leg assemblies, then attach the lower shelf.

The seating sections area full resin wicker, with a boxy look.  The cushions are supported by plastic strapping.  The chairs are 29 inches wide, 29 inches deep and 29 inches tall.  The seat is 23 inches square and 12 inches tall with the cushions.   The love seat has the same dimensions, with the width of 52 inches on the outside of the arms and 46 inches on the inside.  The chairs will support 225 pounds and the love seat 400 pounds.

Better Homes and Gardens Rush Valley conversation chairThe assembly of the seating pieces will require an arm to be attached to the back, then the seat/front skirt.  Attach the other arm and tighten all of the hardware with the tools that are included.  Assembly time should only take about 1/2 hour for two people with some skills.

The cushions are made with Olefin fabric covers and Polyester filling, they are 5.5 inches thick.  The throw pillows and lumbar pillows have a polyester fiber cover with polyester polyurethane filling.  These are made to last a long time in the outdoor environment, I still prefer to store when not in use for longer life.  The throw pillows are 15 inches square and 5.5 inches thick.  The lumbar pillow is 20 inches long, 10 inches tall and 4 inches thick.

The shipping box will be 51.5 inches long, 37 inches wide and 30 inches tall, it will weigh 146 pounds.  You will need two stout people to move this around and a pickup or large SUV for pickup at the store.

Lumbar and throw pillows included

Cons

This simple design will have steel frames with a powder coated finish.  The round top cushions with the buttons in the back will give that rich design.  The table will have a tempered glass top.

The table is 40 inches long, 24 inches wide and 18.5 inches tall.  The top glass is built into the frame, replacing the top will take some work.  The support for the legs is a ring and does not allow for any extra storage.  Assembly of the table will take turning the top upside down, attaching the legs, then adding the support ring.  Final tightening of the screw will need to be made with it sitting on the legs for the best level table.

Mainstays Wentworth conversation chair backThe seating pieces have vinyl slates for the seating cushions support, they have a design on the back.  The chairs are 26.8 inches wide, 32.3 inches deep and 33.1 inches tall.  The love seat is the same except for the width of 54.5 inches wide.

Assembly of the seating will require the back to attach to the seat.  Then attach the arms for final assembly, then add cushions.

Cushions are made from a polyester material.  This will not last as good as the Olefin in the other designs.

This set will come in one box that is 51 inches long, 24 inches wide and 22 inches tall.  Will take about 30 minutes for two people to assemble that have some skills.
