What do you get in the box
You will get two chairs and a bistro table that will all fold up for storage. Steel frames will have a powder coated finish in a choice of two bright colors, Red and a Lime Green. The finish will last very well in outdoor conditions, if the paint gets damaged, you will have to repaint to keep rust away. Also look for rust to develop around the hinged areas after a few seasons if left outside a lot.
The chairs will be 16 inches wide, 17.5 inches deep and 32 inches tall. The seat will be 16 inches wide, 14.25 inches deep and 17 inches off the floor. Each chair will support 250 pounds of butt. When folded, each of the chairs will be 16 inches wide, 5 inches deep and 36.5 inches tall for storage.
Chairs will have a slatted design for the seating and back section. You will need to add some cushions for long term sitting comfort. Table will have a flat top
Table will be 23.5 inches across and 28 inches tall. When folded the table will be 23.5 inches wide, 1.5 inches deep and 37 inches tall. Table can support 100 pounds of weight, most will only have a snack and a few adult beverages, so this should not be a problem unless someone sits on it that is a little heavy. Keep butts in the chairs not on the table.
Total weight of this set is 32 pounds, this set will be easy to move when you have to store it. This set will be perfect for those who need to remove their patio bistro set when not needed outside.
Set will arrive in one flat box that will weigh less than 40 pounds. This will be very light for any outdoor furniture set.
Very little assembly will be needed with this bistro set. The chairs will come fully assembled, the table will need the top attached to the folding frame. A few minutes of work and you will be ready to enjoy your new small patio bistro set.
Care of your folding bistro set
As with most patio sets with a power coated finish, just use a mild soap and water mixture to clean your surfaces. Any harsh chemicals will damage the painted surfaces and start the rust cycle. Do not use any glass cleaner, as this is very bad for any powder coated finish.
Storage for this set will be very easy, just fold and put in a closet close to where you use it. At 32 pounds, anyone can fold and put this set away after use.
