Features and Construction
The 4 piece Mainstays Dashwood Metal Conversation Set in Grey will have two chairs, a loveseat, and a coffee table. The frames are made from steel with a gray powder-coated finish. The steel for the frames is a square box design.
Each seating piece will have a seat and back cushion for each seating position. Olefin fabric will cover all of the cushions, this is a good fabric for outdoor furniture. You still need a storage solution for the cushions when not in use or during bad weather.
The coffee table will have four straight legs with a slatted top. The top will not allow a lot of water to gather during rain storms to help it last longer outdoors.
Each seating piece will have four straight legs with arms at each end. Each seating position will support up to 250 pounds of butt.
Size and special options
This conversation set will have room to seat 4 with all of their drinks and snacks. The comfort will be aided by the thick cushions.
The coffee table will have a slated top that will be 39.4 inches long by 20.2 inches wide. This is a standard size for most conversation sets.
The seating will have 21.65 inches wide, 22.44 inches deep, and 4.7 inches thick cushions for the seat. The back cushions will be 22.05 inches wide, 14.96 inches tall, and 4.7 inches thick.
Assembly and care
Most will be able to assemble this set in less than an hour with some help. The most critical comment from customers is that some of the pieces did not align correctly during assembly. This happens with metal furniture during the shipping process sometimes.
The back and seat sections will need to be attached together for each of the seating pieces, then the arms are attached to each end. Adding cushions will give you your finished seating. Just make sure that your final tightening of the hardware is done with the seating on its legs on a smooth flat surface for the best results.
The table will just need the legs attached at each corner.
