Three Piece Folding Outdoor Set

We have one set left…all set to go to some lucky dad for Father’s Day. All three pieces fold for easy storage. Comfy resin basket chairs are a trendy taupe/grey color. Pack them up in a camper and be the most comfortable people in the campground or beach this summer. No need for cushions, these chairs are comfortable on their own (although we did try a small cushion on them).
