I ordered this set last Monday. It arrived Friday. Very fast shipping. Very well packaged. Nothing arrived damaged. This set is very good quality. Sturdy, no wobbling. It does take at least an hour and a half to assemble. You need 2 people. I looked at several sets before choosing this one. I am very pleased with the quality. Much heavier than anything I looked at in the big box stores. The finish does have a red tint which works well on my deck as I have the Madeira red trex decking. The chairs do swivel. Very comfortable. No cushion necessary. I would recommend this set to anyone looking for a table for a small deck or patio. I also looked at higher end sets from hanamint and castille. This is very similar in quality to those.
