This set is a great value compared with so many of the 8 piece square sets we looked at - it is also a bit smaller than most out there, which was great for us because our deck is on the small side. Agree with the other posts that the chairs are difficult and time consuming to put together, but they seem pretty sturdy - some aren't quite level though. Only thing i would say is that the arm rests seem a bit low for the average person & we don't even have cushions for them, they'd be even lower with cushions on - just a bit awkward to me. We have had the set through a full summer here in the northeast, and the set has weathered - as the instructions say, it will need to be sanded/refinished, but we knew this when we bought it, and are ok with that.
