Strathwood All Weather 3 Seater Dark Brown

Strathwood All Weather 3 Seater Dark Brown

After reading the online reviews I ordered this sofa with some trepidation - there were some terrible reviews of the condition that it came in! I am happy to say that the sofa arrived without mishap, and it is everything I hoped it would be. It looks high-end, even though the cushions could be cushier, and was in perfect condition. I immediately ordered the matching chair and table, to complete the look. This was the cheapest set I found anywhere, including delivery. The fact that there was absolutely zero assembly required was a big plus.

I was surprised, however, to learn upon delivery that they did not unpack the sofa for me. In fact, it was just out of the kindness of their hearts (and seeing I couldn't possibly move the sofa package myself!) that the delivery people brought it around to the back yard. They told me I needed to have ordered "white glove delivery" in order for it to be delivered wherever I needed it placed, and that would have included taking it out of the box and disposing of the box. I didn't know of this option, but I would definitely do that on any large piece of furniture at this point.

My only other comment is about the coffee table, which looks fine and matches the set, but which is practically useless as a flat surface, since there is nothing under the wicker. Anything you put on the table is going to wobble. Would not recommend the table. Sofa and chair - awesome!

  1. Patio sofas can be 1) very expensive, and 2) hard to even find. There are hardly any sofas available for under five-hundred, and often those don't have matching sets, so this Strathwood set from Amazon seemed almost too good to be true. Since it's always a little sketchy to buy an un-reviewed product online, I told myself I would give this sofa Amazon its first review if the couch turned out as good as we hoped--and it did!

    It matches with a chair and coffee table which we also purchased for our porch, and it's a very striking set all together. The pieces are lightweight, which is probably why it's so affordable, and the resin wicker feels very durable; the cushions are comfortable but with good support, and the brown/cream color scheme seems pretty versatile too. And at 72" between the armrests, it's long enough to take a nice nap in.

    Not exactly the 2nd day Prime shipping like it was supposed to be, but I still got it and it was well packaged and protected.

    Overall we're VERY happy with this sofa. We also have the two arm chairs and table, and they all look great sitting on our covered 18'x18' deck. The pillows are a bit bland, but we plan to get some accent pillows to liven it up a bit.

  3. Firstly, the delivery was a pleasant experience. I was called before delivery to set a convenient day to receive the sofa. Further, I was called on the delivery day to confirm and then again by the driver when he was preparing to come to my location.

    The sofa is exactly as pictured with respect to color and styling. It is quite nice looking and would seem to fit in many decorating schemes. The sofa is quite light, about 55 pounds, so it is easy to move about. It has a sturdy metal frame that is similar in color to the sofa's resin wicker. The resin wicker seems quite strong and is woven tightly. I was not able to see through the wicker weave to the frame. The cushions are about 4 inches thick and firm. They are zippered for cleaning and their corded ends provide a nice look. The cushions are polyester but seem cool and like they "breathe", though admittedly it's only in the 80's now, we shall see when the temperature soars another 30-40 degrees. The included throw pillows are similar in construction and look and are comfortable. The sofa is firm but I find it comfortable to sit on for extended periods. Due to a backyard construction project underway when it arrived, the sofa was inside the house for the first three days. This allowed several people visiting, of various heights and weights, to sit on it, and all found it comfortable. The shortest adult was 5' and that person found it comfortable to sit on, though thought it better with one of the throw pillows behind the back. The resin wicker should hold up well outdoors and it's light weight will make it easy to maneuver for cleaning. The price is quite good when compared to other outdoor furniture as well.

    To sum, build quality, price, and excellent delivery make this a great buy.

  5. I have been very impressed at the style, comfort, and durability of this sofa - at such a great price. Most outdoor furniture is so overpriced that I assumed the quality on this had to be poor, but I have been very impressed and it looks just as good as the picture and is very comfortable. Also, at 6' tall I am able to lay down on this couch with my legs stretched out and take a nap. Really pleased with this purchase. Thanks to the other reviewers who rated it so high, which encouraged me to give it a shot.

  6. Followup: In response to the weight limit - I have been unable to confirm but I can say that it withstood the weight of 3 people and gets daily use! There is no sagging. The cushions - I used a product called 303 Fabric Guard, which can be purchased at Amazon. I highly recommend treating the cushions. The dust brushes off the fabric and liquids bead up where you can wipe off without staining. I did the entire set with a 32 oz bottle.

    I received this sofa in less than one week. It was everything I expected. Great quality at an amazing price! A very attractive piece. The sofa is well constructed, comfortable, and the resin wicker is tightly woven. The dark finish is exactly as shown on the website.

    The cushion fabric is very soft to the touch. They are 4" thick and corded. All cushions and pillows have zippers so you can wash them when they become soiled. I plan to spray all the fabric with a protector to keep them looking new. The color is a light khakki.

    All in all this made for a great addition to my patio and I couldn't be happier!
