4 Piece Wicker Patio Set

I have mixed feelings on this patio conversation set. It is a very beautiful set but there are many drawbacks. First, this set came with a LOT of pieces. Honestly it took me about 2 – 3 hours (taking short breaks in between) to set up a few of the pieces, some of the screws didn't want to go in!. Second, the instructions. There really aren’t any. It’s a one page sheet per item with pictures of how to set it up all on one page. Third, the pieces aren’t labeled (which is strange because the instructions show alphabetical item labels). The instructions show TINY versions of what the pieces are supposed to look like but I wasn’t able to figure out some of them just by looking. Lastly, some of the sections I wasn’t able to even assemble. One in particular the screws weren’t long enough so you can tell in the pictures they weren’t perfect. The glass on the table top is another one that the glass is just a tad too long to fit properly so I am going to have to try and reassemble it. Durability? I’m not sure on that one. With all wicker, you have to use gentle care and caution in my opinion. This seems like it would be ok for an average weight person assuming you’re not bouncing on it and you were able to secure the screws properly. I would suggest honestly you find someone able to assemble this for you. Helpful hints: I would unwrap every piece and then separate and group the similar pieces. At least then you can get a good idea of which pieces belong to which item. Just make sure you have each item you’re supposed to have before assembly to save time and remember to do this when you have some free time and hopefully the patience it requires. I think you can enjoy it if you do.

I was expecting a couple of boxes but when it came in one box, I was amazed at how well it was packed. The directions could be a little clearer. Once I laid all the pieces, I discovered that one the four packages of hardware broke in transition; as a result, I had missing hardware from the get go. It took about 4 hours to put this set together and was not too happy at how difficult it was to navigate the allen wrench especially in the tight spaces. Furthermore, I felt that the tightening mechanism for the chairs were not engineered or designed correctly as it did not allow for tightening and stopped where there was still a big gap that needed to come together. So when I went to the hardware store to purchase the missing hardware, I went ahead and bought screws that I thought would hold the chairs together. The set is adorable and is the perfect size for my backyard and it fits just right in the concrete area of my patio. I got the black with the grey cushion which gives it a more contemporary feel even it errs more on the transitional side. The cushions are covered in a plastic-like material rather than your traditional outdoor fabric feel, which works great for me.The cushions are rather thin and wish it had thicker padding.Overall, I and my family of three have enjoyed sitting on the set while taking in the sounds of the various birds calling, watching the squirrels chase one another, as well as nice quiet evenings on the patio. Fantastic set once it's assembled!

This product comes in one box. It took 2 hours for my husband and I to put together as several of the pre-drilled holes did not align correctly. So you may of had 4-5 screws in place then go to put the last one in and it wouldn't line up. You would then have to unscrew everything put the poorly aligned screw in first and then put the others back in. We eventually were able to get everything put together. The first night we used it we realized how poor the quality of the product really was. The seats support is not solid wicker, it is instead 3 plastic straps. No matter if the person weighed 90 pounds or 200 pounds, the cushions will sag through the slats of the chair or love seat. For the strap design to work, you would need 4-5 straps going across. The next day, we loaded up the set and took it back to Wal-Mart and received our money back. I commend Wal-mart on their customer service as we no longer had the box, the set was assembled but they took it back as we had our receipt. In short, stay away from this set.
