I was really excited about getting this set before I received it:Good points:- I like the back design of the chairs/bench- The shipping was super-fast (about a week)- The furniture is packed well. Bad points: - The BENCH DOES NOT FIT UNDER THE TABLE (that's why the furniture is arranged in the picture like it is - meaning that when you sit on the bench you have to lean way-forward to reach the table.)- The stain on the chairs, bench, and table are all different. The arm chairs are a deep funky red color. The bench has a very light stain. It makes the set look mixed-matched despite the design.- The joints on the bench were not constructed very well and needed to be modified in order to fit together.- One of the main structural bolts for the bench is missing - not something that you can pick up at a hardware store. I've been in touch with Overstock and they're going to try and send me a replacement.- Slats that make up on the top of the table do not fully fit into the joints - looks like it's going to be prone to damage/breaking through if anything super heavy is placed on it.What a pain - just spent a couple of hours putting the furniture together (it comes in flat boxes).Definitely would NOT have purchased this if I was able to see it in person first.
This set is very easy to put together even though I broke the Allen Wrench during assembly. This set of outdoor furniture is very sturdy and has solid construction.CHAIRS: the seats of the chairs are not secured by any screws, so the seat platform just layes within the frame loosly. The chairs are solid and sturdy and roomy; however, there is absolutely no countour to the back rest whatsoever, so a lower lumbar pillow is needed for any sort of comfort.BENCH: the bench is constructed just like the seats and is well built. It also has no contour and needs lower lumbar pillow support. The bench is wider and the arms are higher than the table. THE BENCH DOES NOT FIT UNDER THE TABLE, so you have to lean forward on the edge of the seat to eat.TABLE: Easy to assemble and although a bit narrow, it is perfect to seat four.I am considering purchasing two more chairs separately for the dining table and using the bench elsewhere as an accent piece because it really does not work with the table, oddly enough.
We were very happy with the appearance of this set. Looked a lot like how it appeared online. However, within the first week of having it, the table cracked in the middle when our umbrella was blown over during a storm. Not the best quality.
The construction quality of this patio dining set is excellent. The wood, workmanship and finishings are really first class. I'm always concerned about the construction of furniture that is assembled with an Allen key, but the pieces interlocked and assembled to fit like a glove. I haven't had these items long, so I can't vouch for how they will hold up under rain and direct sunlight, but they look great, are sturdy and are worth the price.
The holes for the screws were drilled too large and the screws didi not hold (on some, not all) and had to revise the attachments. The overall look of the product is excellent but the construction needs to be monitored at the factory. Dimensional checks would be a good idea.
