I ordered this primarily based on reviews, and am so happy with the purchase. Not the cheapest thing available - but worth it. The chairs and table (which is round with 4 straight legs) are incredibly stable (not at all wobbly). The chairs have a mesh sort of "sling" type seat and back, and are particular comfortable. The seating surfaces don't detract at all from the wood. The only thing I've noticed is that the channels along the sides of the chair seats do tend to hold a little water after raining. It seems to dry pretty quickly in the sun (before it has a chance to get "swampy") or if you just tip the chairs in any direction it all drains out. I probably wouldn't leave these outside in the winter, as the water might freeze and cause cracking problems. Overall I am extremely happy with the set. Particularly comfortable seating, and wide enough so that you don't feel cramped (and I'm no delicate flower) and more importantly very stable and solid. I decided not to seal the wood with the stuff provided along with the set - and the teak is weathering very nicely. Really good set. 7/5/17 - as a follow-up (two years later) - this set is holding up so well, and zero complaints about it in any way. I would but this again in an instant.
Arrived in heavily damaged box, dropped off in driveway when I wasn't home. I went ahead and repaired the significant breakage with gorilla glue. Item looks GREAT but it is not the super hardwood, teak-equivalent as advertised. You can indent the wood simply by pressing hard with your fingernail. ...but it does look great and functions as advertised. Because some of this is glued together, I won't be leaving this out in the weather- I plan to stow it indoors come winder time.
