When looking for seating for your deck or other outdoor space, the Mainstays Sanza Rattan Conversation Set will be a good solution. The combination of a tight and loose woven resin wicker will give you a look that most other sets do not have.
With seating for four and a coffee table with some storage on a lower shelf, this set will look great and give you comfortable seating for you and your guests.

Features and Construction
The Mainstays Sanza conversation set will have steel frames with a powder-coated finish. The frames will be covered with a resin wicker that is hand woven. The front panels of each piece will have a closer weave that looks almost like a solid panel.
The tabletop and lower shelf will also be a tight woven resin wicker panel. This will allow for the storage of some of your goods while enjoying your outdoor space.
Each seating piece will have squared-off seat cushions, and a pillow-type back cushion. Each cushion will have a poly fiber fill and polyester fabric covers.
Size and special options
The two chairs and love seat will seat four with ease. No official weight capacity is given for this set. The structure is very strong and it should hold up to above-average adults without any trouble.
The cushions are a neutral beige color. The resin wicker is a dark brown color. Both of these colors will go with most outdoor color decors and match a lot of wood decks or composite decking.
The coffee table will have four legs with each end having a loose woven resin wicker panel. The tabletop, lower shelf, and lower front and back panels will be a solid hand-woven resin wicker material.
Assembly and care
Each piece will take a little assembly. This set can be assembled by most in about an hour if they have just moderate assembly skills.
The chairs will need the back attached to the seat. Each side of the chairs will be added next and then the lower panel that will add to the stability. The love seat will require the same assembly, just a bigger seat. Just make sure that you do the final tightening of the hardware with the pieces sitting on a flat-level surface for the best results.
The coffee table will require the legs to be attached to the top and then the lower shelf and support panels. Again make sure the table is sitting on its legs and on a smooth flat surface for the final tightening of the hardware.
Most stains and spills can be cleaned up with a wet rag with no cleaning solutions. Do not use any chemicals as they will harm the finish on the resin wicker.
The cushions will take most of the care. If you do not store them out of the weather when not in use, they will not last more than a couple of years. I have a section on storage solutions for cushions here.

Final thoughts on the Mainstays Sanza Rattan Conversation Set
The Mainstays Sanza patio furniture would be a great choice for any entertaining area outside. With seating for four and a great design look, the cushions will give you long-term sitting comfort.
The only drawback to this or any other patio furniture is the storage of the seating cushions. This is the same for any patio furniture with cushions.

I liked your review on the Mainstays Sanza patio furniture. I agree it would be a great choice for any outside entertaining area. The design is nice and the cushions look very comfortable.
I agree about the storage of the cushions. We have a set outside on our deck and we never know where to store the cushions for the winter season.
Where do you suggest storing cushions for the winter?
If you are storing your cushions for the entire winter, I would store them inside somewhere. I do store mine in a 3-season room in the back of my house. When it gets cold we do not use this room much.
If you do not have a room or closet inside, a larger storage shed that can keep your dry and out of the weather is best. See some of my examples of storage solutions here.
