I purchased a Wilson & Fisher White Cast Bistro Set Item # XG-1015-23 from the Big Lots store in Colorado Springs. I assembled the pieces per manufacturer directions. I sat on the chair. I experienced castastrophic failure of the chair. Two legs broke away from the seat and I fell on the floor. It appears the seat itself failed, as the legs were still bolted to the rim of the seat.
