My conclusions on these chat sets

When looking for a patio chat set, one of these will work for most people.  They have very different details and seating arrangements.  Some will offer extra seating or the relaxation of reclining backs of the chairs.  Cushions, cushioned sling material or resin wicker will make up the seating areas.  You have a lot of choices here, I hope I have helped with your decision.
