I bought this bistro set 3 years ago, and it still looks brand new — now it's 30% off for Presidents' Day

Blink and you'll miss it

It's official: People have already started searching outdoor furniture stores online for their patio set for spring. And honestly, I can't blame them. Living in a two-bedroom apartment with a teeny tiny amount of outdoor space meant I had to do extra research when searching for the right set. And if you live in the city and have outdoor space, whether it's a small balcony or a spacious patio, then you'll understand how much of a premium it is (my friends like to remind me on a weekly basis). Plus, if you've ever had to buy outdoor furniture, you'll know how much of a minefield it is. 

So, with a sunny space to furnish and work to be done (in the sun), I invested in this foldable three-piece bistro set a couple of years ago as it was on sale. It's made from acacia wood and tbqh, I didn't really expect much from it. Or, at least I didn't expect it to still be kicking around in 2023 after spending nearly every day of the summer lockdown using it. Now, for Presidents' Day, I've spotted this exact set on sale once again. It's currently 30%, off meaning it's only $175 — a total bargain if you ask me.

You can choose from four colors (white, black, terracotta, eucalyptus green, and Prussian blue), allowing you to embrace your minimalist or maximalist side. But don't take too long as this sale ends soon. You might regret not having a cute place to chill when the weather gets warmer, so shop on.

I mostly use my set now for al fresco dinners, sunset cocktail hour, and for cooking on our portable grill. I would go as far as to say that this piece of furniture, along with my sofa and my bedroom rug, is probably the most durable item I own. This really shocked me, partly due to its affordable price and because we all know that it's hard to find something that's both stylish and long-lasting.

The best part? Because it's foldable, it doesn't take up any space during the winter months, leaving more room for my dog to do his business in peace. I will admit that the chairs are a lot easier to fold than the table, so I never actually fold the table away, but it's possible. It's also easy to keep clean and it doesn't need to be covered up to protect it from the weather, which is a total bonus because who actually remembers to cover their garden furniture after each use?

Pick your fave from these four colors and head to the (digital) checkout. This sale ends soon, so don't miss your chance to score 30% off ahead of the oncoming warmer days.
