We bought the sofa and two club chairs for “my husband’s 40th” five years ago, and I’ve been really pleased with how well they’ve held up. (My husband and the chairs.) It stayed on our uncovered patio for three years at the last house and has been on our screened porch here for the last two years. I’m happy to report that the body of the furniture still looks exactly the same. (And, it’s easy to hose off.) I’m never a huge fan of patio “sets” so we bought the main seating to match and I added in other side tables, stools, etc.
I did end up replacing the original tan cushions when we moved. After three years in the elements, they were moldy and flat as a pancake. As I mentioned yesterday, I tried to save money by ordering another brand that wasn’t made for our furniture and they never did fit right, always bunching and slipping. . . This year, I ordered the cushions that fit in the Sunbrella fabric and not only does the fabric look and feel better, but the cushion itself is thicker. I think these will hold up much longer—especially on our covered porch.
