It Looks a Lot Nicer Than It Is
on 17 August 2016
This set is not very nice. Yes it looks good in the photographs, but it wobbles!
Here are a few quotations from the instruction leaflet .....
1) This set has been tested for a maximum load of 250lbs static weight only.
2) Under no circumstances should you abruptly sit or jump on the chair. Do not stand on the chair.
3) Under no circumstances should you sit, stand or jump on the table.
4) Do not leave the furniture out in excessively windy conditions as the furniture is light and may blow away.
Yes - those are all actual quotations from the instruction leaflet. The first is rather worrying. It says that the 'set' has been tested, not the individual items of furniture.
If you want something that is cheap, and will look nice in photographs, then this is the set for you. Otherwise, my advice is look elsewhere. I bought this in August, so I hope that it will last for a couple of months. Next spring I will be buying a proper cast iron set, which should last a lifetime.
