Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Camellia Not suitable for outdoor use
We liked the furniture when it arrived -- easy to assemble, comfortable, and it looked nice.
Then it rained. The finish came off when it was exposed to the rainwater. First, some numbers that had been scratched into an armrest and painted over appeared. Worse, my patio was stained brown. After 2 rains (I live in southern California, it doesn't rain often), much of the finish was off and the wood was starting to crack.
Home Depot took the set back and refunded my money, but we wasted a half day to disassemble the pieces and haul them to the closest HD in our truck. I then had my patio pressure washed, but some of the staining could not be removed. What a disaster.
I would never recommend this product.

Very pleased overall. Hex bit and drill highly recommended to put everything together. Directions easy to follow. Only negative is height of arms on sofa & chairs. Practically useless at their low height.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by amarr131 Comfortable, easy to assemble, quality patio furniture
We purchased this set on sale for 50% off during a recent promotion and it wad drop-shipped to our driveway. The most difficult part of assembling this was lugging the boxes up to our Florida room. I would definitely recommend that you use a hex drive drill bit in lieu of the Allen wrench provided in the box, it will cut the assembly time down by about 2 hours.
I am not handy at all, but was able to assemble the 2 chairs by myself in about 1 hour, then with one other person's assistance assembled the sofa and tables in another hour. In all a great product, and with the 50% off deal we had, you couldn't beat the value!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by stephabelle Beautiful Set but Cushions are too Thick
We contemplated returning it once my husband put together the first arm chair. The seat cushions are five inches thick, very firm and do not sink down at all. Your arms are much higher than the armrests, making them unusable. So it makes you feel like you're a little person (and I'm 5'9") in a big chair. But it looks amazing, and it's not UNcomfortable. If it really gets to be too much, we're going to order cushions that are not quite as thick. The coffee table is beautiful, and overall we love the way it looks. Using the coffee table as an ottoman also helps with the very thick cushions.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RoyinVirginia Excellent seating arrangement for our porch.
In a word - Excellent. Packed expertly, fit and finish were first rate. Assembly instructions were clear. The actual assembly of the set was easy...although it helped having an extra set of hands when assembling the chairs' leg assembly.
I do have one suggestion - while the kit came with 4mm Allen wrenches, I would suggest purchasing a 4mm Hex Driver Socket using a 3/8" drive. For one thing the steel in the driver socket is going to be less prone to rounding the way the Allen key did, The 3/8" drive also allows for the use of a socket wrench, and that made the assembly go much faster.

Expensive for put together yourself furniture BUT I have to tell you it is pretty nice quality! The wood is a beautiful medium brown mahogany & the back cushions compliment the set with light blues, greens & browns. Again, I am not a big fan of assembly furniture but the set is well made & can easily hold solid when a person of apprx 215lbs sits on it. It took around 2 1/2 hrs to finish assembling & delivery is right to the door. Overall both my wife & I are pleased & now hope it lasts against the weather for 7-10yrs. Oh - like most mention in previous reviews the cushions are thick & the arm rests are low, not the most comfortable set I ever sat on but not bad. It's outdoor furniture, what do you expect.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TX77 Looks elegant and is very sturdy.
At first I was apprehensive about any furniture that you had to put together: it would look cheap and it would not be of good quality. I was wrong on both counts! It looks as elegant as a complete set purchased at higher end stores and it is built very well. My husband is 205 lbs and it suits him just fine. The pieces were easy to put together but you definitely need two people and you need to lay out all the pieces, including hardware out first before you start. Takes about 4 hours to put it all together. (all 6 pieces) We did it in two days after work.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Andrea Beautiful & very sturdy set!
Like this set! It is very sturdy & seems to be really good quality! We get tons of compliments on it. Only 2 negatives...like others have said the cushions r too high to use the arm rests. So basically the arm rests r there for looks only. The second thing was one of the parts for the coffee table had no holes drilled in it like it is supposed to so we need to exchange that piece for a correct one. It took my husband who is an accountant (so not a very handy man around the house) about 3 hrs to put together. All in all we really like this set!!
