Overall, we are so happy with this couch, which looks perfect around our outdoor firepit! The instructions and overall assembly approach were quite simple, but I recommend 2 people so that one can hold the pieces together while the other inserts and tightens the hardware as it's a bit of a tight fit to get the pieces together. It was further made difficult as the corner chair had incorrect pieces that wouldn't fit together, and for a while we assumed it was user error and then realized they had been incorrectly labeled and constructed during manufacturing. And once the sectional was put together, one of the center seats stuck out further than the seats next to it in the back- but honestly I'm probably the only one who will notice! When our replacement parts came (quickly & easily from Overstock!), we got it all together and it really looks great! The first guests to sit on it immediately asked "oh! Where did you find such a comfy couch!? And it looks amazing!"
once the sofa is put together it's great, but the assembly is time comsuming. some of the holes do not line up, so you have to improvise. it is the perfect size for a small patio or deck, and the color selection is great. the back is short, so if you are tall this sofa may not work for you.
Just a warning. Two sections of this set had wood beetles and one section had insect damage that had been filled with some sort of epoxy. When I received this, the wood was still green & had been shipped from Vietnam, via the Port of Long Beach.
I have some contemporary indoor furniture, it's frustrating that the usual patio furniture in local stores has the classic/traditional looks. Luckily I found this sofa sectional. Looks and feels great. Cushions could be thicker, but it doesn't bother me.
