Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JM80 Perfect!
I read many reviews before purchasing this set as I couldn't believe the low price, and was a little hesitant to order after reading so many negative reviews. This set is large, sturdy, and beautiful! Some reviewers complained about the time it took to put together, but my husband had it out of the box, together, and went in the pool while I was at the grocery store (a little over an hour)!
One thing: this set is made of wood and does need some kind of protective seal applied if it's going to be exposed to the weather. We took the advise of one of the other reviewers and applied a marine seal meant for boats (also found at HD) and it looks fantastic. The cushions also need a protective spray as they are not waterproof, but there are many products out there like 303 or Auqua Armor(which is supposed to be very earth friendly) For the price and quality of this set it would be worth buying it even if you planned to replace all the cushions.
Overall I would definitely recommend this set, you just can't beat the look of real wood!

We're very pleased with this set. It's comfortable, sturdy and attractive. We did treat it with tung oil before using it and it just made the wood more beautiful.

We had been searching for a couple of months for the right set, and what we found was that other sets were very expensive and felt and looked cheap. We looked at every store we could think of both retail and online and found this online exclusive on homedepot.com. We were very nervous about buying something without being able to see it, but at this incredible price and with the ability to return it, it was a no lose proposition.
When the set was delivered, we opened it and couldn't beleive the quality behind not only the furniture itself but the cushions as well. Not only is this set worth the full price, $799, but it is a no brainer at $319. We loved it so much, that we bought two sets, which works out well considering we have a large patio.
I must confess that we are wooden boaters and know alot about proper wood preservation and also how to treat upholestry that will need to withstand not only UV rays but rain. In order to keep the set looking like new, we have applied a marine product called Sikkens Cetol Marine to the wood and we sprayed the cushions with a product called 303 fabric protector. Just google both and you will be able to find both locally. As with a wooden boat, if you give the wood a quick annual coat of Sikkens Cetol Marine and the cushions a quick spray of 303 fabric protector, this set will never age. If you enjoy the look, feel and warmth of real wood and despise all of the cheap looking aluminum and fake wicker furniture on the market today, this is the set for you. Keep in mind however, if you want it to look new for years to come, it will cost you about 4 hours a year in maintenace to keep up with the look.
I'm attaching a picture of the furniture after I applied the Sikkens Cetol Marine, and left the cushions off so that you can see the wood. This is after two coats, it looks awesome and you will love how the wood grain pops. Keep in mind, that if you use Tung Oil or Teak Oil, it is not as durable, the wood will still go gray and there is no UV protector in either of them.
Good luck, and if you buy this set, you will not be sorry.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer Very nice, great price!
I'm very happy with this set. I was going to buy two chairs for the porch but this whole set was less or the same price as some chairs. Looks great, very sturdy. VERY easy to assemble. I'm going to follow the advice of other reviews and put a coat of protectant on it.
I was very glad I read the review that described the delivery so I was prepared. It arrives by freight in two huge boxes. They'll take it by hand truck where you want it, but not up any steps. I had a place ready for them to drop it, then unpacked the boxes piece by piece when I was ready. It was delivered in just a few days. Amazingly fast shipping.
Overall, I'm very happy with the purchase.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AuntDi I love, love,love it!!!!! Great set for Great price and it's Martha Stewart!
I was very apprehensive after reading some of the other reviews. BUT, My sets ( I bought 2) are just wonderful. I am spraying a marine varnish on the pieces and scotch-guarding the fabric to make it more waterproof. I plan on having it for a long time.The set is stunning. So easy to assemble, uses an allen wrench, so I can take it apart for the winter and store it away. Seating areas are quite wide and spacious. Makes the set look and feel luxurious. Colors are easy to accessorize, browns and earth tones. I can't wait for the next gathering to use my sets. The yard looks wonderful and this set just adds to the ambiance.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DogeatDog VERY affordable for what you get!!!
We have a front balcony and a back deck, so this was the second set of patio furniture for our back deck. I have to say, for the exceptional price we paid (it was on sale) you will not do better! Believe me, I searched and searched! We bought a similiar set for the front balcony a few months ago and this Plum Island set is more stylish and comfortable (deep seats and cushions, that come in an adorable striped pattern in muted earthtones of sage, brown, terra cotta, and yellow), much easier to put together and seemingly more durable and luxurious. We had a 4th of July party and received so many compliments! We absolutely love it! Makes us feel lilke we're at a high end resort on vacation!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by sawRN Great for Michigan summer nights :)
This patio furniture is great! The cushions are neutral colors and blend well with the wood. The pieces are sturdy and functional. It takes about an hour to put together and does so pretty easily- I'm not handy person at all. It's cozy and looks like high end patio furniture. Since it was put together we've received a lot of compliments on it. It does not appear to come weather protected so I plan to use what another reviewer recommended; 303 fabric protector and sikkens cetol marine to protect the wood and cushions as I'd like for them to last for a couple of years. I would highly recommend this patio furniture set to anyone looking for comfort, relaxation and good times with family or friends. Happy shopping!
