This powder-coated steel frame, with a glass top table and swivel chairs, will add to the looks of this set. The chairs have a sling-type fabric attached to them, it is not removable like other cushions.
This set has the only table that has a hole for an umbrella. I would not suggest going out and getting a big umbrella as the smaller 4 or 6-foot version is all that it will support in any wind even though it has a very wide base.
The table is 32 inches square both top or bottom and 36 inches tall. Glass tabletop and bottom support have holes for an umbrella. Assembly will require the top to be turned upside down, four legs to be inserted, round then square support installed. When you finish and turn the table up, you can insert the glass top.

Comes in two large boxes that weigh over 100 pounds total.

Great insight John, thanks for sharing. Frankly, all of these look fantastic. I really like the cushion concept, but am a bit concerned about getting them wet. Also, I have never owned a table umbrella and saw that at least one of the tables could handle an umbrella. Are they difficult to maintain?
With any furniture or accessory for outdoor living some care will need to be done to keep them looking new. I would store any fabric items when not needed for any long time. Umbrellas can be left out if you put them down and have a cover for them. Having the proper umbrella stand is the most important factor.
I liked very much the Mainstays Belden Park Swivel High Bistro Set, they look super comfortable and modern, without a doubt they will fit perfectly in my garden. Are they delivered anywhere in the world or is it just for the United States?
If you can get stuff from Amazon, these sets are available. The cost is more than at Walmart.com, wich is only available in the US.
Great review and selection of products you have provided John. These sets all look good poolside and on back balcony too. Even on a high rise they would seem to be ideal. They all look so great to me, I would have a hard time making a choice. Really well done, thanks for this.
The bar height of these sets will make them a stand along set for any outdoor space. Putting a set by the pool will give you a place to sit and drink your favorite adult beverage while drying off after a swim.
Once again, amazing job on the article my good friend. My favorite outdoor bistro would have to be the Mainstays Sand Dune 3-Piece High Outdoor Bistro Set. For some reason I just love brown for my outdoor equipment, ESPECIALLY with dark brown powder coating, as this one has! I also like the extra coating it has to ensure it stays safe against the harsh outdoor environments. They are at a great height as well, awesome! Overall, great chairs if you ask me.
This set will require the least amount of work. The sling material dries quickly and the frames will need little work to keep clean. I have a similar set of chairs on my front porch for sitting, they are very comfortable for long term sitting.
These are tall outdoor bistro sets for a patio or balcony, but you mention putting them within range of a pool? Is there any reason to be concerned about the chlorine getting on them? I kinda like the idea of getting a taller chair that swivels to keep an eye on things and didn’t want to buy something which would just get ruined quickly if it got met with any type of splashing.
The chlorine will damage the paint over time, almost any patio furniture will have the same problem by the pool. It would be better to keep a little away from the pool or in an area that does not get a lot of pool water by it. A lot of people use these bistro sets by the pool under a cover to watch the little ones while they swim. Any outdoor furniture will require it own protection from the elements.
