2.0 out of 5 stars 'plasticky' and poorly framed, 8 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This arrived on time and well packaged, but, despite the yards of bubble wrap and brown paper, the bright, but very plasticky, picture had fallen away from the very poor quality frame. This is described as wood - maybe it is a form of very cheap wood, but again it looked like plastic and it was very poorly put together with a good couple of milimetres gap at the joints. I admit i never really took much heed of the measurements, but rather went on the photo. In this the picture is pretty much near the size of the sofa, so i was expecting something fairly big. Either that is a bigger Van Gogh in the advertising photo, or the furntiure is Lilliputian! I have returned this, without any problem from the vendor.

5.0 out of 5 stars better than i imagined, 31 May 2012

These cushion covers are beautiful. Good quality and loads cheaper than other large cushion covers i browsed. Actually they were just what i wanted for those spare bare cushions!Perfect. Look fab in my new cottage. They took a bit of finding on the amazon site, but i am so pleased i did. Good delivery service with a nice little hand written note in there asking for feedback please. No problem Alex. I am well chuffed with these. Now where do i get some of those nice wicker chairs from to go with them? :)

2.0 out of 5 stars disappointing, 20 Jan. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I justified spending 4 times more than i had paid for previous wellies on the basis that Hunter Boots have a reputation for quality and, being as i am the one who walks the dog everyday, the one who trudges across muddy wet fields most winter (and often summer)days, didn't i deserve a good wellie that would be comfortable and one that would last me years? Well, the first bit was right. These boots fitted perfectly (I am a size 5 and i bought a size 5)and were very comfortable. However, after 10 months, a particularly wet day led to a wet sock and on inspection I noticed that both boots had little splits across the tops and around the crease of the toe; they had much deeper cracks around the ankles. Had i just been doing mud on this day, the wet may not have seeped through and i may not have noticed this damage. Which led me wonder - how long had they been like that? So much for expensive Hunter wellies. They were not able to manage 10 months, where my last much MUCH cheaper wellies lasted for 8 years with the same amount of wear. So be aware if you buy these boots, especially in the belief that you get what you pay for. Inspect them regularly. The warranty is for 12 months. I have no complaints at all with Amazon, who were prompt to respond and deal with this.
