I received the set one week after ordering. It shipped in 3 boxes - the sofa in one large box and two boxes containing a chair, table and glass top. I'm incredibly happy with the purchase and give all 5 stars for value. I studied the dimensions carefully as my husband is 6'4" and I did not want to end up with "petite" furniture in our sunroom, as it's a space we both use a lot. But I didn't necessarily want the big BOXY looking patio furniture that seems to be so popular right now. Despite the airy look of the set, it is steel framed and quite generously sized with deep seating (chairs are a 22" seat depth measured WITH the back cushion in place). The pieces are not too heavy, but substantial enough and the set seems incredibly sturdy - no wobbling, however, each piece includes some extra rubber pieces that you can use on the legs to level things out if needed. I love the look of the exposed steel legs as well as the wicker wrapped steel rods that runs vertically along the back corners of the chairs and sofa. At this price point, I was not expecting the glass tops to be included with the tables, but I was happily surprised to find them in the box. The cushions are as pictured - cream in color. The four throw pillows are included and are cream with the taupe stripe (O'stock's picture looks more warm, golden brown). The color of the resin wicker is also not as pictured. I would describe it as "taupe". However, in bright sunlight it does have the warm hue that is pictured. Also be advised that the cushions are pretty basic. Not uncomfortable, but very firm with some slight imperfections in the seams. The backs of the chairs and the sofa have a slight curve, but the cushions are rectangular and were not made to accommodate the curve. Quality and size of the set trumps the cushion issue for me - overall they look very nice and all zip off for cleaning. I also think it will be an affordable upgrade to eventually have new cushion covers made.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Quite different. The resin wicker is a dull taupe color. When in bright sunlight, it does have the warm hue as pictured.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Steel frame and resin wicker should last for years and years.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Site description is not particularly detailed (see review), but dimensions were accurate.
Like the other reviews mentioned, the color of the set is nothing like it is pictured or described (it is not caramel). The color of the wicker is a disappointment, not because it is more taupe but because it has dark gray speckles. To me, the speckles look like mildew. I have thought about painting it, but the more I look at it, the more used to it I get, so I will probably just leave it be. That being said, I like everything else about the set. I love the size of the couch and the comfort of the cushions. It is all very sturdy and everything came assembled (yay!), with the exception of having to place the glass tops on the tables. I think I got a lot for the price.
Nice smaller scale patio set. However, my set came to me used. UGH! I needed it to stage a house, so elected to keep it. As long as your set is new, you will most likely be happy. However, it will be challenging to integrate this set into a larger group. Doesn't mix and match well.

I would've given this set 5 stars if it was not for the glass. The glass came shipped very well packaged but when placed on the table it was very easy to break. I notified customer service and they were extremely helpful in the matter. My husband ended up placing acrylic sheets on them. Overall the set is very stylish and I love the unique color. The cushions are very comfortable and the accent pillows are a bonus!
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Slightly off. The picture is not as "warm" in person.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Glass breaks easily. Furniture and cusions are great!
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very accurate.
Beautiful! I was a little iffy about the colors and how it would look, but it is perfect for our sun room! The colors are slightly lighter than in the picture. The only assembly required is putting the cushions and glass tops in place. The glass tops are slightly oversized for the tables, but that's not a problem. The feet of the furniture will not scratch your wood. The furniture is VERY roomy! 3 normal sized adults could fit in the sofa and 2 children could easily fit in 1 of the chairs (or a very roomy option for 1 adult). The glass tops were chipped - I've put in an request for Overstock to send replacement glass tops. Otherwise perfect! Shipping took a while with CEVA, but it was delivered on time according to the time they gave me at the outset. They brought the boxes inside to the room I needed them in, but I had to remove them from the boxes. They aren't too heavy, so I was able to do it myself (5'5" female). The furniture comes in 3 boxes - 1 with the sofa and cushions; 2 each with 1 chair, cushions, table, glass. Highly recommend!
We love this furniture and practically live in this room now whenever we're on the boat. We've had people sleep on the couch (including a 6'1" young man), and everyone thinks it's great and very comfy. We couldn't be happier with our choice.
