Bought this set in July 2018 so only had it out for a few months and was used a handful of times only. It was packed in the back corner of my garage over winter with nothing sitting on it.
First time using it this year and the all the bands on the sofa broke when my very tiny friend who barely weighs over 100 lbs sat on it.
Upon looking at it further it is clear the sun has dried it out which it has caused it to become brittle which is ridiculous since it only sat outside for 3 months.
Lesson learned though, I will spend more money and get something better quality. My last set that was a similar look and material lasted me over 10 years.
I'm in my mid 50's so it was harder for me to set up due to my hands but my husband was able to do most of it. The coffee table was a bit of a struggle even for my 25yr old son. (the bottom shelf part) My mom sat on a chair (85) and said it was comfy. It looks gorgeous and I'm actually on the site to see if there's just chairs I can buy to add to the set. (I got it for the sale price, but when you google its been on sale every yr for the same price since 2016 and the reviews from bloggers are always good)
Okay.. first! Just wow, I was desperately looking for a good conversation set. And I found this online. Best gift from me to me. The assembling took me about an hour. So comfortable and neat. I got it on sale. I could buy another one just for the sake of if. So if you’re looking for something cheap in price but very good quality, this is a must.
