Rattan Direct // Rio Rattan Garden Bistro Set

August 15, 2017

In our previous home, we had a small back yard. We tried to make the best of it by completely decking it to hide the array of uneven concrete areas. Along with rendering the garden walls and painting them a warm sandy colour to try to distract us from the fact we were surrounded on all sides. Adding a small bistro set we were able to go and sit out there to make the most of the late afternoon sun.

That was until we had children, then our bistro set was pushed to one side in favour of a slide, pop up tents and a ball pit. When we moved last year we looked forward to being able to once again sit outside and relax as the sun sets and the children were in bed. We are lucky in that our home has patio doors leading off the lounge. However, it leads to the most ridiculously small patio given the size of the house and garden. Undeterred we have set about making the most of this little corner.

Rio Armed Stacking Rattan Garden Bistro Square Set // Assembly

Arriving in one large box, I was pleasantly surprised to find that the rattan garden set is already assembled. It was just a simple case of removing the packaging wrapping and popping it outside onto the patio. One thing worth noting is the attention to detail on the packaging. With each element wrapped individually with the glass table top receiving additional packing to ensure it arrived safely.

Rio Armed Stacking Rattan Garden Bistro Square Set // Thoughts…

With just a small patio to work with the Rio Rattan Garden Bistro Set works well. The design of the set gives us the flexibility to add to it should we opt to extend the patio. Complete with removable vanilla seat cushions it allows for that slice of added comfort – especially if you are making a night of it reading a book or chatting away. With straps to secure the seat pads around the back of the chairs, there is no need to worry about them sliding off.

The square bistro table is sturdy, whilst being light enough to move around the patio as required. Complete with a safety glass top, it makes it easy to wipe over after you have enjoyed drinks and snacks. With the added bonus of a free cover for the table included within the set, which has a drawstring at the base to secure it against the weather. Whilst the chairs are able to be stacked easily so that they can be moved out of the way when not in use – Perfect for a caravan or mobile home.

    I love the look of this. We have two small decking areas so are limited on seating/dining space. The options are normally a tiny table & two seats or a huge dining set so this is fab

    That’s a nice looking patio set. It’s nice to have somewhere to sit and enjoy a sunny garden. How long before you’re wrestling the kids for your chair though? 😉

    Oh I’d love some chairs like this for our garden. Fab that they stack away too!!

    I’ve just bought a rattan sofa a little like this, I am hoping to use my small outdoor space just a bit more now x

    That is a very nice looking set and it looks comfy too. I don’t have a patio unfortunately but I really like the way it looks on yours:)
