I got compliments on this set, but I can't say that I truly love it. (In fairness, I'll admit I do have high standards.) The antique brown is actually textured and pretty rough on the skin. I got some overstock.com sunbrella cushions for the seats which helps to make it more comfortable, but still I'm worried about the back rubbing against our skin when all we have on are bathing suits. Also, the fake wood table top seems to absorb oils so that when food is spilled on it a mark is left that is hard to clean off. It is a good set for the money but just didn't blow me away.

Love my new patio set and it looks amazing on my deck but it was a HUGE pain to get set up. It came with the wrong legs so I wasn't able to put it together for almost two weeks until the new legs came. Then when I got them one of the legs was messed up and I had to go to a machine shop to get it fixed as I didn't want to wait any longer and had a deck party coming up. Once I was able to put it together though I've been very happy so far with this set and I received lots of compliments on it. The chairs are comfortable, lightweight and stackable and the table top is very easy to clean up. I also love being able to put a patio umbrella in the table which makes it! One other thing I'm dealing with is that the wicker on some of the chairs and on the table is already coming apart. I'm going to glue it down but it shouldn't already be doing that. For the money, I would recommend this patio set and this is the first time in 4 years that I've had a problem with anything from Overstock.
After striking out with steel patio furntiture (rusted on new patio within two weeks), I went searching for aluminum. The challenge was to find a nice-looking aluminum set that wasn't too expensive. I live in a northern state and only get so many months to use the furniture...not willing to spend thousands. I am very happy with this set, looks just as pictured, and after doing a lot of comparison shopping feel it's a good value. I will say that the table top (faux wood) is easily scratched. It arrived with several small scratches. While I didn't love that, it wasn't a deal-breaker for me. I've since added more scratches with a couple of dinner parties. So...if a scratch-less top is important to you, you may want to keep looking (it wasn't for me...and I'll probably start using tablecloths more regularly).
