Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ebnerp Great set -= easy assembly
This is a great set. It is easy to assemble. My daughter and nephew and I put it together in less than an hour using only the tools and hardware provided and a socket wrench. It comes in four boxes (three for the chairs and one for the table) and each box has the tool needed to to put the pipeces together. My rechargable screwdriver was dead and would have made the job even shorter. A socket drive made quick work of attaching the legs to the table. The chairs are very sturdy and comfortably hold all 275 lbs of me and my big butt. Can hardly wait to move it out to the deck, as we have been using it as a dining room table since we had company.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by gbaxter Great Set - Great Value - Great Summer
Everyone loves our new outdoor dining space. We really enjoy the 'high-end' look that this set brings to our patio. Delivery took about 2 1/2 weeks - put everything together in about 3 hours (took a little longer than some of the others here -- too many breaks?) Anyway, only problem was the long screws on the chairs --- they proved to be very HARD. Don't know why the soap hint didn't come to mind. Despite the setup - setbacks, would buy again.
Never owned wood outdoor furniture however so am curious about long-term durability. Owners guide recommends using a wood cleaning/sealing product from company called ScanCom for maintenance.

I purchased these along with the Thomasville Nature's Retreat Seating Set. They match completely in style, construction and color. I also purchased the matching umbrella which provides full table coverage during the mid-day sun.
The chairs are upright and formal, with each having arm rests. The arm rests easily fit under the table. The wood is stained a dark brown color with some rough patches that is expected with wood.
The set comfortably sits 6 people and was quite popular during my recent BBQ party. We had to take the center umbrella out to play Clue later that night so that everyone around the table could see the board and have it placed at center :)

We just received this set and the umbrella. Everything was well-packaged and arrived in a timely fashion. The patio set and umbrella are well-made and the assembly instructions are easy to follow. We did follow the advice of a previous review by using soap on the screws to ease installation on the chairs. The entire ensemble is striking and classic! The set is sturdy and roomy to seat six adults. We are looking forward to entertaining more outdoors, as well as, enjoying our backyard and patio. We are somewhat concerned about how the set will weather but plan to store it in the garage during the winter. We also purchased a cover to protect the set from the sun and rain.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Manhattanite Thanks for the Reviews!
I am so grateful for the information and reviews of this product. I hesitated buying the set because the price was so much lower than other wicker resin products but the set exceeds expectations. The chairs have enough weight to hold them in place on windy days and they are comfortable even without seat cushions. (We bought seat cushions and have yet to use them.) It looks really good on our NYC deck. You also get stain with the set so that you can keep the wood dark, as I plan to do, but of course you could also let it weather. The table is basically resin, or plastic, but it's dark so it doesn't look cheap.

I LOVE THIS SET!!
Looks great, no need for cushions. That was what I wanted because I spend a fortune on replacement ones every year due to sun bleaching....it all adds up to a new set every few years, another plus for this set. The seat are perfect without a cushion. It looks like a $1,000.00 set.
I am a female & I put the table together in 10 min. with tools that came with it.
Needed a bit of help with the chairs but also fairly easy. Used my own tools.
The set was packages very well. It was delivered to my summer home, on a island, and it took about 2.5 weeks, considering it was free shipping, I think that was fast.
I HAVE NO COMPLAINTS & MIGHT BE BUYING ANOTHER SET FOR MY HOME ON THE MAIN LAND.

This set is extraordinary for this cost. It looks like some of the sets I looked at which cost $3000. It is a really dark brown and looks rich. It was very well packed with easy to find tools and even has extra stain. It was easy to put together. The chairs are a little more work than the table. The chairs are extremely comfortable and smooth. I probably won't be getting cushions for them. The table even comes with a solid brass cap to place in the umbrella hole when not using it. I HIGHLY recommend this set. You will not be disappointed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Karen Looks so elegant.
Got this a couple weeks ago and put it together by myself, although probably would have gone faster with help. Putting soap on the screws was definately helpful. The only problem I had was one of the seat bottoms only had one groove for the back, but I notified them and they are shipping a new seat bottom. This set looks so much more expensive than it was and have gotten a LOT of compliments. I will probably cover it in the winter, altough it looks like it will weather well. Just love it!
