I live in a small apartment, and this set was perfect for the space. A little outdoors brought indoors. I bought the near-black set. It arrived packaged well with ample shrink wrap on the items. Chairs were easy to assemble. I would've liked some written directions for the table--my spatial abilities are remarkably poor--and four diagrams could've been better understood if words accompanied the drawings. It took me longer than most shoppers here to put the table together, but I eventually completed it unaided. There was one small defect in the surface of the table, but I'm not sure if I didn't put it there when I was bumbling through assembly. Looks great, feels like quality materials. I'd buy again.
As usual, the directions are minimal...no words just some small vague drawings. Not really required for the chairs which just require insertion of the back spindles into holes and the placement of the back canvas over them. Well packaged (mb overpackaged) and quite and easy to accomplish solo. On the other hand, all the hardware for the table was loose in the box so we were relieved when we found it all. The drawings were vague but with 2 of us manipulating the pieces we were able to figure out how the table was supposed to fold so we figured it out without any mis-steps. The chairs are comfortable for a short person (me...5') and no complaints from our tall people (6'2") . The blue color is really pretty against our white and wood porch interior and coordinates with our other furniture. We found a rug on another site that was the final touch. Overstock was not the cheapest source for this product but the only one that offered a product warranty which i was grateful for not knowing how durable the chairs would be. The other site does allow the purchase of just chairs in case we have to replace any or if we want more. BE VERY CAREFUL WHEN PLACING THE ORDER...although the website has separate pictures and sites for each color, the default color is not necessarily linked to the color in the picture. The blue picture defaulted to barn red. I didnt realize it until I checked the email for delivery status and saw it read BARN RED with the blue picures. Fortunately by that time the set was on sale so I reordered the right color and shipped back the barn red without opening. Even with the cost of shipping back I actually came out a little ahead on the deal.
Attractive, sturdy, lives outside in all weather conditions year round. Have had it almost 2 years and treated with teak oil a couple of times to preserve some of the golden color.
