Bought in April and table came cracked and warped. I have had 3 replacements sent and all are cracked in the same place. Dealt with manufacturer as required. After 4th defective table, Sears would not refund or exchange. So.. I am waiting on my 5th table top!
We have had this set for six weeks and could not be more pleased. High quality workmanship and materials. We almost did not purchase this set because one review said it was "flimsy" - they must have mistakenly made a comparison to wrought iron. This cast aluminum set is quite sturdy and generously proportioned for our big teenagers. Cushions are rich in texture and dry fast but chairs are very comfortable without them. Sears delivered fast. One of the chairs was damaged in shipping and the manufacturer shipped a replacement to us within the week. Customer service like that is rare to find. The metal finish is AWESOME - the photos do not capture this detail. It is a rich rubbed bronze with subtle gold undertones. It appears to be impervious to scratches and/or dings - our large brood has fully field tested this. All legs have leveling screw-feet for perfect adjustment (something else the poor review overlooked). We have seen dining sets selling for 5-6k that are indistinguishable. Buy.
This is a heavy duty cast aluminum patio dining set that looks great and is very comfortable. I bought it hoping that it would be durable and hold up to the weather and use. It looks and feels like it will. Sears white glove team delivered and assembled the set with great service, and we enjoyed it the same evening. I had wondered about the table basket weave top, but I was happily surprised that a drink cup slides right across (with no bumping) as if it was perfectly smooth. Very happy with the purchase.
Bought the entire bundle of this set with 9 pc., umbrella and umbrella base. BE CAREFUL, online Sears had in print that it was free delivery with assembly, but that is untrue. The come, dump the boxes and leave. If you live alone, you will need someone's help to flip the table once you put the legs on and even to get the chairs out of the box because they are all stacked together inside. Apart from Sears, the patio set itself is gorgeous and has a lower price than Fortunoff for similar items. However I was missing 4 of the 8 included cushions and Agio told me the lead time is 6-8 weeks from China.
We have what some say is a blended family but I say we have a large family and there is no better way to show southern love than to break bread together. This set allows your guests to sit in comfort and style. It brings elegance to any home and makes everyone feel welcome!
Looking at the set, it appears nice but once you get up close and touch it, you instantly feel the thinness and fragileness of the cast aluminum. The table wobbles no matter how much you tighten it. The chairs are not evenly constructed and the adjustment knobs do not work properly. We received the set with white glove service but they just dropped the boxes off. They did not assemble it or take the trash with them. Once we unpacked the set, one of the chairs had both legs snapped off in the same location although it was wrapped. As another reviewer mentioned, it comes with touch up paint. That's good because you will need it to touch up all the scratches before you even get to use it. When I called to order a replacement, I was told I would have to wait 8 weeks! The customer service experience was extremely poor! I would not recommend this set for the $2,000 asking price.
I shopped numerous stores before choosing this particular patio set. The set was not available in my store but trusted instincts and ordered online. Fabulous choice. The photo really doesn't do this set justice. The furniture is well made, very sturdy and should last for years to come. The cushions are also very pretty but chairs are also comfortable without cushions. The table is the only piece needing assembly. I also love that a bottle of touch up paint was included with my set. I'm very happy with my purchase and my family loves the set too!
This is soooo nice! I absolutely love the detail and design work on this. This is so nice it would even look good inside the house! Very sturdy and well made and sure to last for years and years. The chairs are very comfortable too. I will never regret this purchase!
