Features and construction

These chairs will have steel frames with dark brown resin wicker covering all of the panels. Cushion material is installed under the resin wicker panel for the seat. This material will dry very quickly and you will be able to sit shortly after a rain.

The woven resin wicker on the chairs will be a solid design except between the arms and seat on the sides, it will have a loose woven design under the arms. A lower skirt of resin wicker will extend about halfway to the floor from the seat bottom.

The table will have four straight legs with a flat square top with a painted wood grain look. A lower support bar will give stability to the table.

Size and special options

This set will be great for the small to medium outdoor spaces. The non motion chairs will not need room for movement. The table is perfect for a small meal or just drinks and snacks.

The chairs have full resin wicker panels for most of the surfaces. Between the arms and seat, the weave is open to allow for a breeze to flow through while sitting.

Each of the chairs will be 30.5 inches wide, 25.6 inches deep, and 33.50 inches tall. The chairs will support 250 pounds each. Each chair will have a cushion material under the wicker panel on the seat.

The steel table will have a painted finish that will have a wood grain look on the top. The table will have a square top with four straight legs, one at each corner. A cross type brace will connect each of the legs.

The square table will be 20 inches across and 18 inches tall. The top will be a solid piece that will not drain well after a rain.

Assembly and/or care

This patio furniture will be easy to assemble for most with some mechanical skills. Some found the screw holes out of alignment when putting this set together, they had to do some minor adjustments to make them fit into the holes properly.

Each of the chairs will come in four major pieces, the back, seat, and the two sides with arms. Attach the seat to the back, then attach each arm one at a time. Make sure that you do the final tightening of the hardware when the chair is on its feet for the best results.

The table will need the top upside down on a smooth surface, I like to use a piece of cardboard from the box, that will not damage the painted surface. Attach one leg at each corner, then the cross brace. Sit up on its feet for the final tightening for the best leveling of the table.

Proper care of patio furniture will be to clean with a damp cloth or just a mixture of mild soap and water for bigger spills. Do not use any harsh chemicals to clean with as they will damage the painted surfaces.

Pros cons of the Hartwell Bay chat set


  • Resin wicker look
    • The chairs have a woven resin wicker finish that is tightly woven on all surfaces except the panels under the arms.
  • Quick-drying cushions
    • The cushion material is under the seat making it faster drying.
  • Woodgrain look of the table
    • The tabletop has a hand brushed finish to look like wood grain. The top does not have the slated look of other tables.


  • Lack of cushions
    • The seats have a cushion material below the resin wicker finish.
  • Metal tabletop
    • Some customers stated the top had a metallic sound when placing things on it. It is a solid top that can hold water after rain.
