Just received the 3 piece outdoor dining set. Metal and wood. The quality is very good. Heavy , sturdy and when assembled very supportive. However, I am disappointed with the fact it is not able to be folded up for storage in a manner that does not require disassembling the benches and table. The statement in its description the ability to "fold up" is one of the main reasons why I purchased this item. The other confusing thing was in the paper instructions it states "inside use only not for use outdoors". " do not place in the sun". I think that may be a standard instruction because it is displayed in the add as outdoor use. I am very pleased with the quality of the product just will have to see about the "outside" use and not be able to "fold" it up. I believe if you disassemble to fold will eventually strip the holes and weaken the support.
Two things to note: 1. The hardware doesn't line up correctly on the underside of the benches and table, making folding impossible. We don't care since we're not planning on stowing it, but if that's an important feature to you, look elsewhere. 2. The benches are too long to fit under the table. That was a surprise to us. So, the footprint of the table and benches is the width of the table plus both benches, rather than some narrower dimension.
This table is stated as being an outdoor dining set; that is simply not true. On delivery I noticed that the outside of the box said to avoid moisture, which i thought was strange, but could be a standard label on shipping boxes. when I opened it up and went through the instructions it explicitly states to avoid direct sunlight and to not get it wet. To most people those are the two main components of an outdoor table. If it can't be in standard outdoor conditions don't advertise it as outdoor or show it placed in an outdoor setting, or at the very least disclose it under details or specs.
The scale of this table and its benches ended up being the perfect fir for a long narrow patio space where a conventional table wouldn't fit. It looks great with two more substantial wing chairs on either end (you do have to rest your feet on the cross bar if seated at the ends, but I am shorter and am actually more comfortable with that little bit of an elevated foot rest). The bench dimensions don't accommodate standard bench cushions but I made my own and we use the table with and without them. This was easy to put together, but it was odd that the accompanying instructions indicate "not for outdoor use". This is advertised as an outdoor dining set and that is what we bought it for. It is under a covered patio, so will observe how it holds up over time.
I've had this table for 1 year. I love the styling. I bought it hoping it would last for years but the table top surface is so warped you can hardly set a glass on top with out it tipping over! The wood and construction are not meant for outdoor use. TOO BAD it is shown and sold in a outdoor setting.
I am very happy with this table which we have on the screen porch of our lakehouse. I spent a good bit of time searching the different table options and reading customer reviews. This table arrived in a timely manner and my husband found it very easy to put together in about 20 minutes. It comfortably fits our family of 5 , and a 6th person could fit as well. It is attractive and sturdy . I love Overstock!
Bought this product in March. But installed it in May, due to some remodeling work that was in progress. After about 2-3 showers, the wood on the table top has started to bend, and in certain places, the adhesive is already leaving the wood! I doubt if the wood is even treated! Now that I am past the return policy, I am stuck with an almost $*** lemon! Did not expect this from Overstock!
Beautiful table on first view though quite heavy. Care instructions for this oiydoor table tell you never to leave in sun or rain. I've been protecting it but already after 6weeks it is showing inusual wear. I would not recommend buy ing thisthis
I'm very happy with the look and the construction of this dining set. It is very sturdy and we have been enjoying it all summer. The only reason I give it 4 stars rather than 5 is that once it arrived the instructions stated not to leave the wood outside! Thankfully I'm using this on a covered porch.
