I bought this set for my small patio - I live in an apartment complex and my patio is on a lake - I absolutely love sitting outside on this furniture and looking at the beautiful lake while I read or sip a margarita or cold beer at the end of a hot florida day. The furniture looks modern and beautiful - I couldn't be happier as it was exactly what I was looking for. peter brady has a good sense of style! I'm doing a somewhat tropical theme on my porch with a couple of different palm trees, a little monkey pull chain for my ceiling fan and a dark brown wood looking tiki statue - this furniture is perfect for my look, it has nice clean lines. you could do any look you want with this style. I notice other neighbors have patio furniture and it's so bulky, I'm sure they didn't realize how big their furniture was until they put it on their porch. my patio looks great - so good in fact that the managements wants to take pictures of it to use on the apartment complex website and do a you tube video. I know its because the furniture makes it looks so pretty. The table is very small and lightweight, I have a very small potted succulent in the middle and still have room for a couple of drinks. and while there have been some storms with lots of wind, nothing has blown away - I do try to bring the cushions in though but they have still held up well in the rain (my patio is covered but has openings in the front and on the sides) and the cushions seem to be pretty weather resistant. Thee is also a zipper so you could unzip the cushion and wash them if need be. The furniture is lightweight enough that you can move it around with ease but the frame seems solid - if I were to leave for the weekend, I could easily pick ithis furniture up and move it inside in a matter of seconds if I wanted to in case of storm or the squirrels who have tried to chew it - which really makes me mad btw. so far so good though. If you have a smaller space you would like some outdoor furniture in, you cannot go wrong with this set. Everybody who walks by comments on how gorgeous it is. just know when you lean back in the chair, you're back farther than you would be in a normal chair and there aren't really any arm rests. none of this bothers me but may not be want some people are looking for. I use my furniture to kick it outside and enjoy the view, read a little, chat with friends, get some morning sun...that kind of stuff and it's working well for me.

This was perfect for my apartments balcony. I had wanted a smaller chat set incase I moved to a different apartment with a smaller balcony instead of buying larger items that I would have to get rid of. I like to look at all the specs before making online purchases, but for those who don't, I would advise you to check the measurements and look at all the pictures (i thought it was smart that peter brady took a pic next to it to show the scale). I can imagine someone buying this thinking everything would be larger. But anyways, I was expecting small and it looks great in person. I usually keep the cushions inside to avoid cigarette burns from balconies above and the elements.
I couldn't have designed the "Christopher Knight Home La Jolla 3-piece Chat Set" better myself. With its compact design assembly was a piece of cake. Literally, the most difficult part was removing the protective plastic wrap. "This set is perfect for smaller spaces with its compact design and easy storage." As always, I recommend storing the (tan) cushions away in a dry place when not being used or during inclement weather to prolong usage. Yes, the cushions are lined with a zipper making washing hassle free, but I still embrace the idea of making what you have last forever. Lastly, it has been raining nonstop, and I’m pleased with how it has held up. In other words, its tightly woven design also allows for proper water runoff and evaporation making it weather resistant. I am more than pleased with this product.
Was looking for something reasonable and not too big for a patio that is not used frequently. This seems to fit the bill. Would have liked more choices on the cushion, but the neutral will allow for some added color in extra "small" pillows.

ALTHOUGH THIS CHAIR AND TABLE SET WAS ABSOLUTELY LOVELY, IT WAS SOOOOO SMALL THAT THE CHAIRS WERE IMPOSSIBLE TO SIT IN. WE WANTED VERY MUCH TO LIKE THEM BECAUSE THEY LOOKED GREAT ON OUR SMALL PATIO. IT WAS A SHAME BUT WE ENDED UP SENDING THEM BACK. GREAT STYLE, NOT MADE TO SIT IN UNLESS YOU ARE A CHILD.
Hello, jerseyncrach. These particular chairs have not been weight-tested, but similar chairs generally have a weight limit of 250 pounds. Thanks for your interest, and have a great day.overstockcustomercare1 on Nov 14, 2013
When you are sitting on the chair, how many inches are there from the cushion to the top of the back of the chair? The dimensions say the chair is 30" high so I'm wondering if this is tall enough to be comfortable when sitting down or if it cuts into your back. Thanks.krispo1 on Aug 25, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question

Does this set need to be brought inside during inclement weather?zen8 on Jun 1, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you zen8 for the question about the Christopher Knight Home La Jolla 3-piece Chat Set. Wicker and aluminum have a tendency of being very durable and light so if its windy, then bring it in, rain, no, but the cushions yes, to keep them nice. It all just depends on how bad the inclement weather really is. Thank you for shopping Overstock.com.overstockcustomercare1 on Jun 6, 2013
