This is a great outdoor set! As expected, the cushions are not as fluffy as I'd like but I know that in order to get that I'd have to spend at least another $1,000 somewhere else. So, for the money, it's really great. It took me 3 hours to build it. I did it by myself but there were a few moments that I needed one other person to hold one of the pieces up so that I could screw it in. Very happy with this purchase.
