Product rusted EVERYWHERE there is metal, and also collapsed. I have 4 chaises, they all did the same. I bought these in August 2012, they started going bad last summer (2013), and I just took them out of storage to find out I for sure cannot used them. I got 5 months out of them...
the Christopher Knight chaise lounge set exceeded our wildest expectations. it meet the description perfectly which is highly unusual. the packaging was outstanding as well. there was not one issue upon arrival. It arrived days sooner than we expected. this was our first purchase from overstock,very impressed.
Finally tore the chaise lounges out of the boxes and sat them at the pool. Zero assembly required and they look beautiful. I have had numerous compliments on how nice the furniture looks. They are very comfortable and I don't even think I'm going to have to order cushions for them. The only two issues I have with these loungers is the legs do not lock into place, so you have to be very careful if you move them to make sure the legs are completely extended. The other complaint that I would have would be rust from the metal screws leaves marks on my deck. It seems to me they could put some sort of coating on them to prevent this from happening. However, having said that, I love this set, especially for the price. I found the same identical chairs in the Frontgate catalog for a lot more money and these appear to be just as nice. They certainly look as good!

As a previous reviewer said the rust is a problem. I've had several chairs for around two years. They are located in two different areas - oceanfront and inland at a poolside. Also, we had them in storage for several months as we are in New England. Rust and stains on our concrete pool deck have been a problem. These chairs are rusty but holding together. I have 8 chairs at rental cottages on the ocean and will have to replace 5 of them as them have rusted apart and will not hold anyone. That's an expensive problem. Granted the ocean is a tough environment but only six months of the year and it wasn't in the ocean or used in the sand on the beach but on an area above the beach. Very disappointed as I had high hopes for the quality. They are very comfortable just won't hold up.

I loved the chairs only one Big problem. The hardware on the chairs are not rust proof. All the screws which you can see rusted immediately. and after they got wet when moved or turned all this rust came out all over my stamped concrete. It is a mess. The chairs are really nice and they look great, but they need to resolve this issue.

We've had these chaises for just three years, and just by virtue of being outdoors in a mild climate - they have developed holes throughout. The weave becomes brittle in the sun and just breaks off/apart. We loved the way they look and are quite comfortable, but way too pricey for what amounts to temporary outdoor furniture. We are very disappointed to have to throw them and start over again. The manufacturer warranty is only 90 days, so BUYER BEWARE
I ordered in May 2012, we have used the chairs outdoors from May-September each year and have stored in our pool house when not in use. The chairs lasted for 2 seasons pretty well, but last year we noticed they were rusting inside and staining our concrete. One chair frame rusted through last season, and this year when we brought them back out, they are all rusted and fit for nothing but trash. The chairs are stylish and comfortable, but not long lasting. I am very disappointed to have only gotten 2.5 seasons out of these chairs and tables.
