I bought this set in May 2012 and it's been great! It was very easy to put together. It has held up great to all kinds of Texas weather. I occasionally clean it with a little pledge and I pull it inside during the winter. The chairs are very comfortable and the cushions are nice and thick. I would really like it if I could buy more of the chairs separately for when we have another couple over. But, I'd consider just buying another set and use the extra table in a corner somewhere. The wood is beautiful.
Our set arrived with several scratches on the wood right out of the box. It took two of us over two hours to assemble all three pieces, including unpacking and clean-up. Lots of bolts, washers, and wood screws. Allen wrench is supplied but you'll need a screwdriver. The wood caps for hiding the bolts after you screw them in don't match the finish of the wood very well. Lastly, I have no idea where I will find replacement cushions with cut-outs like these for around the arms. These aren't quality cushions like [...] so they won't last long.
