Sling Chair Patio Dining set for Four
When looking for a Sling Chair Patio Dining set for Four, you will find many examples. We will look at five in this article to give you an idea of what is available. Each will have a dining table and four chairs with sling fabric for seating.
I like this fabric as it dries quickly after a rain and is comfortable for long term sitting without cushions. I have several chairs with this material that have been outside for more than 10 years with little or no care. I do store them during the harsh winter months to keep them looking like new. The little outdoor critters have not chewed on this fabric like they do the cloth seat cushions of more expensive dining sets.
Now lets look at some of the details of each set and see if one will work for your patio or balcony area.
Mainstays Albany Lane Folding Dining Set
Price when article was written: $99 free 2 day shipping
I have a very similar set that is four years old and still looks like new. I like this set because it does come with an umbrella also that matches the fabric in the chairs. This umbrella does not have a tilt feature, it will only sit straight up. It can be lowered by pushing a button and pulling the canopy down.
The 34 inch square table has a tempered glass top and lower support for the umbrella. No umbrella base comes with this set, you can see what I use for an umbrella base in my article here. The table does not fold up for storage.
The chairs will fold for easy storage when not in use. I fold them and store them on the table top in the shed when not needed. It is easy to carry out to the patio area and set up in minutes for a meal or just to sit around and have a few adult beverages.
This set will come in several fabric colors to match most outdoor decors-Blue, Gray, Red and Tan. The umbrella color will match the seat color for a great look. This set will work well for those looking for a low price and a set that is easy to store when not needed.

Very similar to the Albany Lane set above, this set will have a little more style in the chairs and a bigger table, this square table is 38 inches across. The chairs will have a lattice design filling in the top portion of the chair frame.
This set will only come in the tan color shown, if you need other colors to match your outdoor decor, the Albany Lane set will work better for you.
The chairs will fold for storage, they have a locking tab at the back of each leg that has to be opened to fold the chairs. Table will have a tempered glass top with a lower leg support frame that has a hole for an umbrella.
Umbrella is included in this set also, the canopy color will match the sling fabric on the chairs. No umbrella stand is included in this purchase.
If you need a bigger table or like the higher end style of this set over the Albany Lane, this set will work well for you and be easy to store when not needed.

Looking for more seating comfort, this set will have swivel chairs with a poly padding inside two layers of sling material. The round table will have provisions for an umbrella, it is not included in this set.
The table will be 48 inches across, with the swivel chairs this set will need more floor space to fit comfortably that some of the others in this article. A tempered glass table top will give you a nice surface for you dining or drinks.
Chairs will have a round base and post connecting the base to the seat portion, this will give you 360 degrees of motion if needed. The post will be mounted to the base of the seat with a spring type of mount, this will give a little forward and back motion, not a rocker.
The cushion material is a poly material inside two layers of sling material, like a sandwich. This makes for comfortable sitting, it will not dry very quickly after a rain or washing with a hose.
This set will work great for those looking for more seating comfort and a bigger table. For more of my information on the Highland Knolls dining set, see my post here.

My final thoughts on these patio dining sets
You have a lot of options when looking for the right Sling Chair Patio Dining set for Four for your patio or balcony area. From the small folding sets to the bigger sets with swivel chairs, one of these sets could work well for you.
I have the folding set at my camper at my lake property, we use it whenever we eat outside. It is easy to set up and put away when we are done. I also have a round wrought iron table on a patio in the backyard at home, it has four sling chairs that have a “S” shaped frame for the legs to give a little motion. I have had real good luck with this type of patio furniture and not a lot of work to keep it clean. The chairs in the yard have been there for over 10 years, I do store them in the harsh winter weather in a shed.
I would like to try the Eucalyptus set in the future, as it will last a lifetime with proper care. I like the looks and the sling material will last a long time.
