Bistro Sets for Sale

 

Do you have a smaller outdoor space like a balcony or small deck, on of these bistro sets for sale by Mainstays at Walmart will work nicely.  I will look at several styles in this article and give you several options for your smaller area.  There will be not umbrella holes, no seating for four and no big tables to fool with.  You will get storage options for these sets when not in use.

I will start with the sling fabric chairs, as they are my most favorite of outdoor furniture.  They are very comfortable without cushions and the fabric seams to last a very long time in the outdoor conditions, my set has been outside for more than 5 years and still looks like new.

For those that have storage problems or need to use their outdoor spaces for more than their bistro set, some of these sets will store in very small spaces without any trouble, some chairs will stack for storage solutions.  The sets with cushions will need extra storage to make cushions last for several years.

Now lets look at some of my examples and see what will work best for you and your outdoor space.




Mainstays Sand Dune Bistro SetMainstays Sand Dune Bistro set

 

Price when article was written: $84

Sling fabric available in blue with white aluminum frames or tan with a golden brown aluminum frame.  This will give this collection a very different look.  For the Blue fabric and white frame look, see the high table set below.

A square tempered glass top table will hold your drinks and snacks with a small band supporting the legs.  The table is 24 inches square and 28 inches tall, just the right height for eating a small meal.

Chairs will have metal frames that will have a knitted durable fabric known as sling fabric in the outdoor furniture.  This fabric dries very quickly and resist most stains.  Animal droppings clean up very easily on this fabric.

The chair is 22.25 inches wide, 25 inches deep and 34.5 inches tall at the back.  Seat is 18 inches from the ground and will hold 250 pounds of butt.  The biggest complaint on these chairs is the width, as it is only 21.5 inches between the arms, very big butts will not fit, hope I do not get into trouble for this comment.

Chairs will stack if needed for storage.  This set will fit well in small spaces and take very little of your time to take care of it.

I would still recommend to store these cushions when not in use to extend their outdoor life.

I have a similar set on my deck at the lake, it has been outside for at least 10 years without any rust problems.  My chairs have a round seat and did not come with cushions, we made cushions for more comfort.

This set will work well for those who just want to leave their set out and just add cushions when they want to use it.

Storage solutions for your bistro cushions

 

I recommend storing any cushions when not in use in any outdoor conditions.  This will give you years of use instead of a year or two.
