“ Type: Patio Sets „
It's that time of year, just about. The shed door is prised open, the garden furniture's carted out, and everyone's having a barbecue. Best make the most of it, it'll be winter any second ...
We got there a bit early, actually - the first hint of sunshine and plus-zero temperatures and our table and chairs were out, for which I'm sure they're not grateful. That they've been fine with this is a plus-point, though - we haven't treated any of the furniture with anything, and a year on from buying them, you wouldn't know they've braved the darker side of an English spring, so ... kudos for that.
The table and chairs (ours only came with two cushions, hence a reduction in price) are all well-made, built from solid teak, and feel entirely sturdy and hard-wearing. They've been used for dining, drawing and the like, and have stood up to everything we've asked of them without any problems. The table is unmarked, and there's no sign that the dampness or rain has weakened it at all.
The chairs are surprisingly comfortable to sit on, even without the cushions. These are a little fiddly to attach, and most of the time I don't bother - the curve of the chairs is plenty comfy enough. The table's at a good height, so no issues there either.
Assembly is quick and easy - the chairs pop straight up, and the table legs just need swinging into place and clipping in. When this is done, everything's sturdy and there's no wobbling or difficulties finding somewhere to stand the table. Taking everything down is equally easy, and when folded away the table and chairs take up little space.
All in all, then, a great buy - this is a well-made set of furniture that'll last you a good time, and really lets you take advantage of the summer. Long may it last!
