Looked great online, but came with scratches and dings, in one package sufficient to have to return them. Overstock were great and replaced the items immediately. But, if these outdoor furniture get wet and have even a small scratch, rust pops up. In warmer weather I am looking forward to many happy outdoor meals on this set.
Love the set, but the table isn't what I expected. I thought it had an overall smooth top rather than open squares, like the chairs. We have used it, but had to purchase a solid vinyl cloth to cover the tale inorder to play dominos and other games. It has proven to be a perfect spot on our side patio for relaxing and playing games. My grandchildren especially enjoy the privacy from the older folks.
For the price, the set is fine, though even more intensely green than I had predicted. Even though a number of the screwholes wouldn't take the screws, I was lucky that no chair had more than one faulty screwhole in the same section. Even with a few missing screw connections, the chairs are pretty stable. I was predicting more of a wrought iron product, but instead it's primarily composed of extruded hollow tubes and thin-ish aluminum-like strips crossed into a lattice. It says "iron" though . . . and it does seem a bit heavier than what I'd expect for a cheap aluminum set. Make no mistake, this is a relatively cheap product. I can't say I don't recommend it, though, because it's a few hundred dollars less than what you'd pay for a comparable product in local stores. It will serve well for a few years on my back patio. I added on four $20 Smith & Hawken flat cushions (in brown) from my local Target store, which fit perfectly, and no one's complained about the chairs.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The actual table is a lighter and more intense green than the photo suggests. It's not muted or particularly dark. It's very GREEN.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Exceptionally poorly manufactured. Screwholes didn't line up or wouldn't take screws. Parts of the metal weren't completely powder-coated, and so they remain a bit sharp at the edges.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? The description wasn't inaccurate, but was thin, leading me to make bad assumptions.
This set is well worth the money we paid. We actually bought this for our son who just bought a home of his own. He had a deck and couldn't afford patio furniture just yet -- so this was a gift. He has some friends who are quite large, so we wanted to get something sturdy. He said it was not difficult at all to assemble, and we had dinner at his home a few nights ago and found it very comfortable and nice looking. The only issue we found was there are a few chips in the paint that will easily rust, but this can be easily remedied with a little dark rustoleum paint. He just loves it and after shopping around we found it was a GREAT buy!!!
The shippng was quick and efficient. FedEx delivered the set into our garage without asking. Delivery took 4 days to Metro Atlanta. The set was easy to assemble. As in other reviews, there were a few dings on the tubing, but nothing obvious. The Paint seemed complete and had few flaws, none major. Felt a little foolish when I saw the hammered green color. Missed that on the description, and assumed that the color would be black since it is an iron patio set. The picture appears black on my lap top. As it turns out, it matched our deck very well, and we have not bought an umbrella yet, so we can match the color. Overall pleased with the purchase and very satisfied with the Overstock.com experience.
The order arrived promptly, it was easy to assemble, with just one page of instructions. I saved over $600 cancelling my store purchase of alumin chairs with vinyl staps and that included getting two rocking chairs which were not part of my store order.
After FedEx left my shipment at the wrong house, Overstock.com replaced it quickly. It took about 1 hour to assemble the table and four chairs. It looks great and was exactly what I expected. It is comfortable and very attractive. It's on a screened back porch and is my favorite place to sit, relax and enjoy food and drink. After I get a glass top for it, it will be an excellent card table.
