When we decided to completely make over our back patio, sea wall, and dock area we decided that we needed some new furniture for the area also. This was the perfect thing for the area, and exactly what we were looking for. It was in the perfect price range, and so it made it a no brainer that we were going to purchase this set. It looks and feels really well made. It also makes our patio area really inviting for guests and makes entertaining outside much easier. The chairs are super comfortable, and people tend to sink into the chairs and just hang out for the rest of the evening. They are also holding up really well in the salt air of living on the water, which is awesome! Everything here rusts or corrodes and falls apart, but so far this set is holding up strong. I'm confident that it will last for a while and make it totally worth it that we went with this set. I would definitely recommend this set to anyone.
