Features and construction
The frames are made from steel with a powder-coated finish. The side table will have a barrel shape that is formed with verticle bars. The chairs will share this design with a wider opening bar on the arms and back. The arms remind me of an old bed frame.
Polyester cushions will give seating comfort for both the seats and backs. The cushions are available in a black and white stripe or solid cream color. Color-matched ties will hold the seat cushion at the back and the back cushion at the top to the frame of the chair.
Size and special options
The chairs will have straight legs and no movement. The seating comfort is provided by the seat and back cushions. The curved top arms will help keep you in your seat, not very comfortable for laying your arm on to rest.
Each chair will be 30.63 inches wide, 26.22 inches deep, and 31.81 inches tall. No weight capacity is given in any information available.
The table will be 17.72 inches across the round top and 20.79 inches tall. The bottom is open barrel-shaped with a removable top that you can use as a tray.
Assembly and/or care
This will be an easy assembly for most with any skills in mechanical things. Many people will be ready to sit and enjoy this patio furniture in less than an hour.
The table will come in two halves and will need to be put together with four screws. Add the removable tray that will just sit on top and you are ready to use the table.
The chairs will need the seat attached to the back. The arms will need attachment next, you may ask for extra hands at this time to hold the back/seat assembly as you add the arm/feet assembly. Sit the chair on its feet on a smooth level surface for the final tightening for the best results.
Add the cushions and tie them in place with the small ties that are included.
Taking care of this or any other patio furniture will be a soft damp cloth for the metal parts. Make sure to touch up any scratches that occur over time as they will start to rust and damage your frames.
The cushions should be stored when not in use for the best results. The polyester cushions will keep their color longer if stored out of the sun also. For some of my storage options, use this link.

Final thoughts on the Better Homes & Gardens Aubrey Chat Set with Cushions
The Aubrey chat set will be a great-looking sitting patio furniture that will be comfortable for long-term sitting with the included cushions. You can choose between the two cushion colors to match your current outdoor decor.
The table has a removable top to use as a serving tray. It does not attach to the table and can be lost easily and be hard to replace if lost. This can be a plus or minus that will depend on your needs.
I like the Aubrey chat set for its simplicity in design and ease of assembly. It will fit well in most patio areas that are a little larger than just a balcony or small deck.
