I bought the Garden Oasis Harrison 7-Piece Dining Set to match our other patio furniture. Our aim was to have a conversational setting as well as a dining setting. Our entire patio is now covered, so we had no need for the umbrella. The table has a hole in the middle with a plastic cap, so the hole is not gaping now that we are not using the umbrella. I still have the umbrella and sometimes put it up in the yard for my kids to play under. We simply use the table and chairs as a dining area under our existing patio cover. I love that some of the chairs swivel, but I am unsure of why the chairs are designed differently. I wish I would have had the option to get either all swivel or all stationary seating. The table and chairs are easy to clean, and so far, they have stood up to the elements rather well. Again, they are under a covered patio. With the strong winds that we get here, I don't think the umbrella would have survived.
