I'm very happy with this set. I was easy to assemble but having a ratchet to tighten all the bolts is definitely helpful! quality is good for the price (which was about one half the cost through Overstock). The color is a cranberry red color. cushions are ok, but I bought some pillows to add as its not quite as comfortable on the back as I wanted for lounging, but for the $$, I'm very satisfied! I like that it can be configured a few ways, which makes it versatile, and brackets are included to join all the individual seats together if you don't want to move the pieces around. I saw this same item on 2 higher end sites at more than 2x the price. Delivery was fast. It arrives in 3 very large boxes with the pieces well packed for assembly. Instructions are poor, but it's not difficult to figure out.
