What do you get in the box
The Cosco Malmo resin wicker patio furniture set will include a love seat, two chairs and a coffee table. A flat woven resin finish will cover the powder-coated frames with 3 inch thick arms and ends of the table giving this set its bulky look. The resin wicker is available in two colors, Black and Brown.
The coffee table has thick ends and a shelf with a skirt for some structure as the glass top just sits on brackets on each end piece. Non-adjustable feet will attach to the bottom of the end pieces for the table to sit on.
The size of the coffee table is a little smaller than standard at 35 inches long, 18.5 inches wide and 15.5 inches tall. It will weigh under 10 pounds with the top attached, easy to move by one person if needed. The coffee table is rated for 100 pounds of weight, just be careful of the glass top.
Chairs will have cushions for the seat position and woven resin wicker backs. Each chair will be 26.5 inches deep, 26.5 inches wide and 30.75 inches tall. Seat will be 16.75 off the floor when cushions are in place, some have used this set without the cushions as the seat base is a solid material. 1.75 inch thick cushions will be 21 inches deep and 20 inches wide.
Love seat will have similar dimensions to the chairs, it will be 48.75 inches wide. The cushion will be 1.75 inches thick, 21 inches deep and 41 inches wide. Each seating position will support 250 pounds of weight.
Removable seating cushions will have a combination of polyester filling and polyurethane foam stuffing with Olefin fabric covers. The Olefin fabric is very durable in outdoor conditions. I would still have a storage solution for the cushions when not in use.
Assembly and care of your patio conversation set
This set will arrive in one big box that will need to be moved to an area that is very comfortable for assembly, this process will take a little time, depending on your mechanical skills. This is one area that most customers had the most trouble with this set, some taking several hours for assembly and understanding the instructions.
Coffee table will need the ends attached to the lower shelf, then the feet attached. When setting up on the feet you can place the glass top on your table and it is finished.
Seating pieces will take the most time. Back pieces need to be attached to the seat base. Then attach one arm piece at a time, this is where an extra set of hands work best. Some customers had trouble at this step with holes not aligned properly. I have had this trouble with metal patio furniture before, as the pieces can be damaged in the box even though the box is not damaged.
After the arms are installed, you can add the feet to the bottom of each corner. Add the seating cushions and you are ready to relax in your quality set.
Proper care of your set will be to wipe down when needed with a mild soap and water mixture. Do not use any harsh chemicals even glass cleaner, the chemicals can damage the resin wicker or the powder-coated finish on the steel frames.
Storage of cushions will be needed to make them last more than a few seasons. I do have several styles of storage solutions in an article here.
- Two different color combinations to choose from
- Storage shelf on coffee table
- can use seating pieces without cushions if needed
- Feet do not have adjustments for uneven surfaces
- Cushions will need a storage solution
- Assembly can be difficult, parts are not marked
What are my final thoughts on this set
If you are looking to purchase an All Weather Wicker Patio Furniture set for your patio area, the Cosco Malmo conversation set would be a great choice if you can get by the assembly. The choice of brown or black wicker patio furniture in this set will let you match your outdoor decor.
This set is a little smaller than most in this category, the low price will get most buyers in. If you have larger than normal butts for seating in your family and friends, look at some of my other examples of resin wicker conversation sets here, as they may be too wide to fit in these seating items.
