I was pleasantly surprised when I received the timely delivery. I was expecting to take time to assemble the chairs and table. It came preassembled! The color is the same as on the website. The color is rich. I have had it for about a month and it has not started fading. My only complaint- the arms on the seats. They need some tightening. I believe it is nothing that an appropriate screw driver can't solve. As you can see I am not very handy with tools. The seats and table fold up and can be stored in a closet or in a small storage area when they are not needed. I would highly recommend this purchase, especially for the price. ..around $$$ dollars.

The other reviews correctly identified that the chairs and table arrived with loose screws and required an allen wrench to tighten. So make sure you have one if you order this set. Once the screws were tightened, I put the set on my upstairs balcony and it looks lovely! The chairs are actually quite comfortable and I've spent hours sitting there reading. The packaging says that the color might change over time due to weather exposure, but so far it's remained the nice reddish color after two months of being outside.
This item seemed to be pressed wood underneath the surface. A piece of the arm chipped off when we transported it to a second location where we planned to use the set for the first time. We used it on the balcony of the new location for 24 days and then the corner of the seat where there was a screw broke off. I hope that somebody using it doesn't crash to the floor during the season. I will now have to spend more money buying a new balcony set for next season. Too bad.

As I pulled the set out of the boxes, I was impressed with how beautiful it is. The compact size is just perfect for my small apartment balcony. I did need to tighten all the bolts with an alen wrench, which is NOT included. Fortunately I was having other furniture delivered and the delivery man had one he gave me. The finish on the set is a rich color, but I can see that after time in the sun it will most surely fade, as there seems to be no protective coating. Overall, it is a nice little set and worth the price!
