Seating cushions are a big 6.5 inches thick for a total seating height of 17.5 inches above the ground.  Back cushions are 5 inches thick for a very comfortable seating for long conversations. Blue cushions come with white pipping.  Two square pillows are included, they have a design on one side, they are 15 inches square and 3 inches thick.

Carter Hills Chair without cushions Assembly and care of your conversation set

 

Assembly will not take long if you have some skills.  You may need to take the box apart and move some parts a little at a time if you do not have some way to move the very big and heavy box to your assembly area.  All tools needed for assembly are included in hardware pack.

Chairs and sofa seating will assemble very similar.  Attach the seat frame to the back frame.  Attach each arm to the correct side, they should be marked.  The sofa will have a middle leg support to be installed.  Do final tightening of screws on a level surface to ensure that your seating will not rock.  Add cushions.

The table will require the legs to be installed.  Do the final tightening when it is standing on its legs on a level surface.

Care of your conversation set will be to wipe down with a mild soap and warm water.  Do not use any harsh chemicals as they will damage the painted surfaces, even glass cleaner will damage the paint over time.

Cushions should be stored when not in use.  Excessive water and sun will take it toll on them.  If you need some storage solutions look at my post here.

When looking for a outdoor patio conversation set, the Better Homes and Gardens Carter Hills set from Walmart.com should be on your short list if you have a medium to large sitting area.  This set has comfortable cushions, powder coated frames and comes in three color combinations to match almost any outdoor decor.

I have sit on this set many times and find it very comfortable, the biggest thing that I will tell you is to keep your cushions stored when not needed for any long period of time.  Replacement cushions will cost almost as much as a whole new set.  See some of my storage solutions here.
