I had read most of the reviews of this set before buying it. I'm convinced some people should just not buy things mail order because they're either jinxed or will complain about ANYTHING. For the price, this set is all I could have wanted. First off, it's contemporary looking which is what i wanted. The color is unique...not your typical dark brown PV wicker that you find. Big thing for me was it's a "smallish" set and since space was an issue for me on our deck, this fit perfectly. I read reviews where people say..."Oh its too small or I didn't think it was going to be this small, or The photo is deceptive cause it looks much bigger..etc etc" Well duhhh that's why they put the measurements on the item listing. Get a tape measure and you'll see just how big this is and where it'll fit. This set is well constructed. It's a bit of an annoyance that you have to use an allen wrench to put it together but i still got all four pieces together in about 3 hrs. Most who've seen this think I paid 3 times as much money for it. If you have space issues this is probably a great set for you...however, if you're 6' 5" and 300 lbs. I'd pass on this one. Highly recommended for quality of construction and value.
we were surprised to see this set came in two boxes!! it was quite a puzzle to put together. There were two pieces that were damaged. We contacted Customer Care and they were replaced very quickly. Once together, the set is beautiful and comfortable. Make sure you have an electric screw gun to put this together, otherwise is will take forever!

I received my patio set today. Shipping was very quick. 2 pieces were damaged, but overstock is taking care of that and contacting the manufacturer. As I was putting one of the pieces together, I noticed that in the Care & Maintenance section, it says "Do no place furniture outside. For indoor use only." This makes me nervous and i do not know how long this furniture will last...i guess we will see. The sites specifically says Outdoor Wicker Sofa Set. So what is it really?

We have a small covered portion of our deck and I was looking for a classy sofa set that didn't break the bank. This set fits the bill. It's just as beautiful as the pictures make it appear. The color of the wicker and the cusions are elegant and the set itself is very comfortable and sturdy. I must admit, it wasn't the easiest to put together at first. The pieces are not labeled so you need to be very good at eyeballing what peices make sense based on the directions. Some of the pieces fit together very easlity with the screw going in easily as well, but some did not. I definitely needed a friend to help push while I pulled in order to attach the sofa pieces. I recommend starting with the sofa first, because once you get that done, you have a better understanding of how the furniture fits together and the smaller pieces are defintely easier. Also, invest in an allen wrench screwdriver - it makes IT SO MUCH EASIER!!!!
Excellent quality and great price! Easy to assemble. Very happy with purchase!

Really beautiful, modern, neutral patio set. Took some work to assemble, but instructions were good and didn't take us too long. I love the look and feel of this set. Feels sturdy but lightweight. Love the gray color as it is hard to find. Definitely recommend if you are looking for something with clean modern lines. Be aware that it is a low back set, so might not be great for really tall families.
The grey looks great with the black cushions. The quality is very good and seems that this set will last awhile. It has held up very good so far. But, its under a covered porch. There is no wear in a months time. I took a chance & very happy with this purchase. Thank you overstock!
The Christopher Knight Home Puerta Grey Outdoor Wicker Sofa Set is just as pictured on the website. It looks great on our patio and has been enjoyed by the family since it arrived. I searched the web for several weeks to find a good set at a reasonable price, and this set and price were the best I could find. Great value for the price! I had read the comments and knew there would be some assembly, which did take several hours, but the assembly was very straightforward, not at all confusing and was done easily by myself. Also, I noticed there was a comment about a concern of potentially cutting into the product when opening the box, but my box had a protective piece of cardboard between the product and the box to prevent such a problem. One of the bags of hardware had opened and there was hardware strewn about the box, but because there is extra hardware for each piece, I was able to attach everything. Also, one of the side pieces to one of the chairs had been damaged somehow - the wicker had been sliced and unraveled on one member. I took photos, started a web chat with Overstock on their website, and within a few minutes had the issue resolved. Within a few days I had a replacement side piece at my door! The customer service was remarkable! I was very, very impressed. Thanks Overstock.com for a great product and a great customer experience.
First, this set is a good value, is comfortable, and looks nice. The comments from other user's are right on: the set is smaller than it appears in the pictures. If space is a limitation then this is your set. The only con (and this prevents the set from getting excellent ratings) is that many of the holes do not match up which creates a lot of headaches when being assembled. I've put together many items in my lifetime (this was not my first rodeo) and this was one of the most frustrating assemblies I've experienced. Took about 2+ hours to complete. If you have Allen wrench screwdrivers (with handles) it's better than the provided Allen wrench.
Been Searching for a conversation piece for a long time.... This is a really nice set very comfortable. Very pleased with my purchase.

Exactly what I was expecting. Small set fits perfectly under my deck awning. Assembly was pretty straight forward and I put everything together in about 2.5 hours with a few breaks. It lacks storage which I feel could have been incorporated under the sofa, chairs, and inside of the coffee table. However, I understand that the engineering had to keep things simple for assembly and practical for shipping purposes. Fair price for good quality furniture with a contemporary style.
The set looked very nice! The only problem was the cushions aren't waterproof like you would expect an outdoor cushion to be. They got soaked and it was almost like a sponge! Eventually they dried out and there was no mildew. Also the black cushions fade quickly.
