I bought a bunch of pieces from the Sante Fe Nailhead collection, and overall I'm very satisfied with my purchase, especially for the amount I spent. The furniture itself is gorgeous and looks/feels much more expensive than it was, not to mention it's almost impossible to find brown metal patio furniture, so this set is unique and matches our decor perfectly. It's fairly comfortable (for metal seating, at least), though I think next year I will go ahead and buy some cushions. It was also about the easiest furniture I've ever assembled - seriously, nothing but bolts and nuts, and everything lined up correctly, and they even included lots of extra parts - and out of the 15 or so pieces we bought, only one was missing a piece (the seat of a chair, which Overstock sent me at no charge a week later). My husband and I assembled all 15 pieces in an afternoon (about the time it would take you to assemble one Ikea dresser!). My only complaints about the set are a couple issues with the finish. As others have mentioned, a lot of the pieces come out of the box with a fine, brown/orange powder coating on it. I'm pretty sure this is some by-product of the finishing process, like extra paint or something. It wipes off clean with a wet rag, but it's still messy and will stain your clothes, and is just an unnecessary pain to deal with. More of an issue, though, is the fact that the furniture will RUST the very first time it gets wet. Many of the pieces were scratched out of the box - which I was fine with, b/c I'd prefer for the furniture to look a little worn-in (and save me the guilt of dinging it myself the first time!) - but the problem is that anywhere that the finish is scratched off will fill in (literally after ONE rain shower) with a bright orange rust. I had done my homework and read all the reviews, so I knew this was a possibility and was prepared - I'd purchased CLR to remove the rust, and 10 bottles of clear matte Rustoleum to seal the furniture with, just in case. So another couple hours of work, and the furniture was good as new and hopefully protected for the rest of the season (at least, no more rust has developed since then, despite some serious rain). But that being said, I was still disappointed that the rust developed THAT quickly. And in general, I'm sure most buyers aren't looking to invest 2+ hours and 10 cans of spray paint in their brand new patio furniture, since it *should* just come sealed properly (and not scratched) from the manufacturer. But, you get what you pay for I guess - besides these finish issues, this set easily looks and feels comparable to patio furniture that costs 3-4 times as much, so for us, a little elbow grease was worth the savings. Overall, I'm very happy with this purchase and expect to enjoy this furniture for many years to come. If it wasn't for the finish issues and needing to invest extra work into sealing the furniture properly myself, I would have easily given this 5 stars. As long as you understand what you're getting into, I think you will be happy with the furniture as well. :-)

I love this set that is perfect for our new patio. It was easy to assemble and extra nuts and bolts were included with the "kit". It looks lightweight in the photo but is actually quite sturdy and was comfortable for a guest who weighs over 300 lbs.
Picture true to how it looks. Chairs are spacious and it's comfortable to sit in them. Easy to put together. Only drawback is that it seems to scratch easily (we put a clay planter on the table). Other than that, enjoy the product a lot.
We are very happy with this set. The chairs are comfortable and the table is flat and stable. We don't worry about placing good glassed directly onto the surface. It is a very good buy, particurally with the free shipping. It presents beautifully on our patio.We have high winds and the furniture doesn't move which is important. I would purchase the larger set if I were in the family mode but we are only two.

This bistro set fits perfectly where I have it. I wanted something more contemporary looking and not so ornate as many bistro sets are . This fits very well with the other outdoor furniture I have on my patio. It's attractive and was easy to assemble.
Super easy to assemble! Neither my husband nor I had to swear. :-) Good quality and very sturdy. My husband is a big guy and he feels comfortable sitting in the chair. It loots great in our southwestern courtyard but fit in any patio. fyi....Overstock does price match so I got an incredible deal on this set.
I love this set. It is very sturdy and looks like a more expensive set. There were a few scratches on some of the pieces when it arrived but once I put it together it looks great. It's also comfortable, I often enjoy my morning coffee sitting in the chairs.
Living in a high rise near NYC's East River, I needed something that would withstand high winds, resist dirt, offer comfort without cushions, and look attractive to me and the dozens of neighbors that overlook my balcony. This set fit the bill and more, at an incredibly reasonable price. The set is solidly built and extremely comfortable whether you're sitting up to use the table, or lounging back and reading a book. The feet of the table and chairs are rubber-tipped which will prevent scratching the treated balcony floor. I was able to assemble both chairs and the table within 30 minutes, and nothing wobbled, creaked or tilted when I was done! Although the seams are welded and I saw no scratches or dents, I will spray this with a protective coating as others have suggested as I hope to enjoy this set for a good long while. Great price, fast (free) shipping - in all, I couldn't be happier.
Looks great on our porch. It has both a contemporary feel with the straight lines but blends in with traditional items well.

The set is great, sturdy and will live through a winter on the east coast for sure. The chairs are very comfortable! Shipping was annoying. We got notification that the "three piece set" would arrive in one shipment when in fact, it was only the table that arrived. After email and a phone call, the chairs eventually arrived too. That is my first bad experience with Overstock.
