So many of y’all fell in LOVE with my Hampton Bay Millstone Dining Set, available at the Home Depot Canada. It was prominently featured in my #ProjectPatio: The BIG Reveal! post, and we too coveted the set from the first moment we laid eyes on it.
(And now that I’ve hyperlinked the hell out of it, it’s time to get down to business!)
Here’s the deal. When we first started planning for our backyard patio, we assumed that we would prefer lounge-type seating. After all, drinks on the patio and wicker sectionals go hand-in-hand, no? However, after much thought and a careful reassessment of our family habits, eating preferences and lifestyle, we concurred that a standard dining set would likely be the better choice. However, I was very particular about the features of the dining set; it had to have:
a) comfortable seating for six
b) sturdy, stackable chairs, and preferably two that reclined
c) a unique style that is contemporary yet functional
d) rust proof framing and weather resistant fabric
e) a timeless colour coombination that coordinates well with all décor
Thankfully, it didn’t take long before we settled on the Hampton Bay Millstone Dining Set. I was quite taken with the cast iron dining table; its intricate design and aged bronze powder coated finish was perfectly stylish and functional, and I appreciated the quality of the design.
The swivel chairs have just the right amount of “give” to make them truly comfortable, and the standard chairs are sturdy without being overly heavy. I adore the coordinating decorative cushions; they lend a friendly pop of colour and provide generous lower back support. Although we grabbed a deck box for storage, the seat cushions have been through one or two summer showers, and I’m pleased to report that they are authentically water-resistant.
But apart from the fact that it is a beautiful, quality dining set – why should you “Buy it Now?” It’s currently over $500 off online at the Home Depot Canada! That’s right, the complete set is marked down to just $589.00, which is a phenomenal price!
There’s still a LOT of summer left to enjoy this gorgeous Hampton Bay Millstone Dining Set patio set – Happy Shopping!

really pretty, I just need to build a deck sigh
I hear ya. I’ve waited for my patio for 6 long years!
What a beautiful set! I’m going to show this post to my dad who is in desperate need of a new patio set!
Awesome! We love it!
I love that set – too bad my backyard isn’t big enough for it. I am planning to move in a year or two though and will be looking for a bigger backyard with a nice patio ! :o)
Patios are THE BEST! I’m so glad we’ve still got at least another month of beautiful weather ahead!
what a stunning set. alas, my backyard isn’t big enough for this and also, i need to have a decent enough deck. *cries* i’ll just live vicariously through you, Lena!
Aw, that’s pretty much how I feel about anyone who lives near the water :) Vicariously it is!
Wow – what a fantastic price! I really like the size of the umbrella and the swivel chairs. Really nice set!
You bet! The umbrella pretty much gives shade to my whole patio!
I just fell in love with your patio all over again — the stone really is gorgeous and it’s so spacious! Also, I vote ‘yay’ for getting that 4 piece set!
Sold out now; I didn’t act quickly enough! Though I still think I may check my store stock….
I love the throw cushion design. Looks so inviting. Just need a drink with an umbrella in it my Hawaiian Tropic Hat and a chef to serve up a perfect meal (or BBQ guy aka Hubby)
You’ve painted an awesome picture, Cathy!
What a great set, I love it! But the only place we have for patio furniture is at our trailer and this set would be a bit too big for our deck :(
Ah, it’s a pretty big set, so yes, a house patio is preferable, LOL
Nit a bad price, but alas no patio as of yet
Ah, one day Debbie!
That’s a beautiful patio set
Thanks Mr. Disco!

Wow, that would be nice on the patio! One day…
It’s a stunning set for sure!
I like the look of those chairs, they look solid. My hubbys a big man and he tends to push up on the arms when he gets up (instead of using his legs) and tends to destroy chairs quickly
Agreed, they’re very well made.
This set is just stunning. Very good choice.
It’s super comfy and super stylish!

The dining set is lovely! I love how large the umbrella is :)
One of my favourite features! We all have shade, regardless of the time of day.
Loe the colors.. Very warm and inviting
Such a lovely dining set. I like how the pillows add a bold statement
Love how you picked up on that!
Love the set and accent pillow. The table is the perfect size for entertaining…big, but not too big.
Couldn’t have said it better :)

Love this set, we just don’t have an area big enough for it
Yeah, we made a large patio so it’s no problem accommodating it, but it is on the larger side.
Been eyeing a set like this, hopefully I can find one
Like the cast iron patterned table
I really do like the look of this set, it looks nice and sturdy too
It really is, Debbie :)
Love this set and will have to see if my local home depot has it in stock as i have wanted a patio set for some time now!
Nice! Fingers crossed for you!
This really is a great outdoor dining set. I commented on your other post how much I like the swivel chairs. Now that I see the pattern in the tabletop, I like the set even more!
I think the patterned table is what really sets this set apart. Thanks Lisa!
I do love this set, unfortunately it would take up the entire patio in our tiny back yard
:) It is on the larger side, so you definitely need a little bit of room :)
$319 is a really good price for this from the Home Depot. I would have thought it was much more. Hmmm… gotta call Hubby to have a look at that!
Fingers crossed you can find it!
i so want your patio set,, amazing..
I’m in love with it too :)
I’m not sold on the cut out table top. I’d imagine my kids would have things falling through alllll the time… but it is very pretty to look at!!!
I was worried about that too, but the cutouts are generally too small for anything but a french fry to fall through!
I love the finished look on that table, not a glass tabletop :) I love it, wish I would of gotten a tabletop without glass, so gross to keep clean.
Glass can be particularly tricky outdoors for sure!
We also chose a metal patio table over the glass topped versions. I find they can withstand a lot more abuse, and we need that with a our boys don’t we :)
We certainly do!!
This looks awesome. We have a glass patio table, but I’m sure metal is more durable!
It’s awesome. And, very pretty! LOL
Really nice looking set, classy look!
Great choice! I love it. It matches very well with your backyard!
Thanks Jenny! I think so too!
Love the large comfy chairs!
Ah, love that they swivel too!
If we didn’t already buy a “not nice as yours” earlier in the Spring, I would definitely take advantage of this sale price. Love your taste in decorating.
Thanks Tricha! And Home Depot has amazing sale prices, agreed!
Love the captains chairs on the patio sets, so comfy looking, lol, in my house we would prolly race the kids for those seats!
Haha my boys haven’t figured out how awesome they are yet!
Wow. That is a great price. I love it when they have sales. They do that well. Your dining room patio furniture looks so beautiful.
Thank you Doreen :)

You’re giving me all sorts of ideas for when we finally tackle our backyard patio! (Again, not wanting any grass out there!) I love your new set & the pattern in the table is really lovely.
Now is the best time of year to buy outdoor furniture, I think I may have to convince hubs to head to Home Depot Canada with me this weekend & see what’s on sale for our soon-to-be front yard patio!
Love it! And I’m wishing we had made our patio even larger – I hate grass too!
Great new backyard set looks really comfy!
The patio set is really nice. Enjoy.
:) Thank you Florence.
Your new patio set looks awesome, I am loving it.
Home Depot offers so much collection – I’ve bought many Hampton Bay lighting fixtures in the past. Love them!
Agreed! And I love Hampton Bay too!
It’s such a lovely patio set. You must be so happy to have it!
We are over the moon Erika!
Great deal on the patio set…just wish I had a patio big enough:)
We really wanted a larger patio, even though we have a smaller yard.
I love how the design in the table is the same as the cushions.
Isn’t the design so harmonious? I love it!
The fact that the chairs are stackable is great. I didn’t know these sort of chairs would stack.
They do! It’s very impressive!
Love the design of the table and chairs. Plus the fabric is gorgeous.
That’s a lot of functionality in one set.
That’s why we love it!
I love how stylish the patio table is. Not the usual boring table!
Yup ,the intricate design is so fashion forward!
Elizabeth Friesen (@emfriesen)
No need to go out for drinks or meals with a gorgeous patio like that at home!!! Extremely stylish and looks very comfortable too!!! :D
I agree, Elizabeth!
The chairs look stylish and very comfortable…I love decorating with wrought iron.
Me too – it’s a fave!
I love that patio set! It is beautiful! I wish my yard was nice enough for it! Next year, maybe!
Next year, Brenda!
I love the bases on the chairs they look nice and they look very solid too
They’re such good quality, I love them!
Lovely set,I am hoping I will have one next year.
Good luck, hope so Lynn!
I really like your Patio Set, especially the swivel chairs. We need a new set badly and with 6 chairs, the color you chose is perfect.
Thanks Clifford :)
I love the patio set and it looks great on that new deck!
Yup, I think so too!
I love your choice. So nice and inviting!
Exactly. Thanks Jen!
You have a great choice of style, love it!
Thank you Tasha!
That’s a gorgeous patio set. I need to get one of those next summer!
Yes you do! Love it!
Very beautiful set, Lena! You have such a great eye for awesome pieces :) I would just be worried about items spilling due to the ‘grooves’ in the table!
Hahaha rest assured, the grooves are very tiny!
I love the swivel chairs. Did the pillows come with the set?
Yes they did, Angela!
Absolutely beautiful Lena, steal of a deal on the price!!
Yes! Lucky those who snagged it!
the chairs are really pretty, its looks like it will stand up well in weather conditioms
Awesome patio set, and great price :)
It looks nice, but don’t things fall through the holes on the tabletop?
LOL they don’t. The grooves are actually very small – only about a toonie could fall through :)
I love the neutral colours! Means it is easy to add on in future years and still coordinate. The splash of colour in the cushions really jazzes it up!
Never thought about it that way, but you’re right!
I really love the dining set. You chose a beautiful one. Enjoy it!
What a fabulous set, love the mat as well! Your patio looks amazing now
It really does :)
Great design and good deal. I just don’t have the space yet…
Maybe some day? Thanks Bons!
Love the patio set, the colours are just beautiful !!
They’re so warm and inviting!
Love the detailing on the patio furniture
Thanks Laura :)
Guess I’ll just have to get a backyard so I can out the furniture there!
Hahah good luck with that!
The set looks amazing on your new patio! Very stylish.
the set is beautiful!!
What a deal. Those chairs look so comfortable.
What a nice place to entertain! Turned out amazing!
Thanks a bunch Linda!
Those little pillows are just gorgeous!
We love them too. Thanks Carole!
Very pretty and I like the elegance of cushions. My patio set doesn’t have cushions!!
Gasp! A patio set needs cushions!
I love the set. But I love the umbrella in particular. A lot of patio dining sets just seem to have an umbrella that provides enough coverage for the table but not enough for the people who are sitting at the table underneath. This seems to have enough for the table, people, and some wiggle room.
You’re absolutely right, J – it provides the perfect amount of coverage!
outside dining at it’s finest I’d say; very nice patio set
Have a table. Wondering if it is possible to purchase the chairs only.
Well it’s 2014 and this set is on sale again! After reading your review I just made the purchase!
How did yours weather over the winter? did you leave it out and cover / or store indoors? How are the seat cushions holding up?
Thanks for the great review!
That’s awesome Chris! So, we placed plastic around the chairs and left them in our back yard – no concerns at all, they’re as good as new. My husband was not as careful with the table/umbrella stand and didn’t cover it at all – and in the spring, there was mild rust on the base of the umbrella stand (the table weathered the winter with no wear/peeling/rust at all).
We stored the seat cushions and they are like new. So all in all, the only thing that took a mild beating was the umbrella stand. (We removed the rust with a commercial product in minutes.)
This set is VERY high quality and I’m so happy you were able to grab it at a great price! You will love it!
i love this fingers crossed for you
Very well decorated and very well kept. I’m thinking of buying this one as this is on sale again. Did you get the umbrella with the set or you bought it separately? Is this a Hampton bay umbrella? What is the width for the umbrella?
Hi Vee! This is the umbrella:
It is 11-Feet Crank & Tilt. Happy shopping!
