This four piece metal framed set has very deep cushions. It would be very nice for a large patio ares. It will be very comfortable for seating five for an evening of entertainment. The cushions are reversible in the same color in case that you have a stain and cannot get it out.

I have to say my favorite is the steel-framed Carter Hills. It looks really nice and when you said you could lie down on the sofa, I had visions of relaxing with a book in the sun! I think that color of cushion would be good too, and not show up too many marks or stains. As long as the dogs don’t try and take it over for themselves! I do like the teak wood as well, but it is a bit out of my price range. I enjoyed your summary of the most popular choices.
The Teak Wood is high in price, it will last a lifetime. Most people will opt for the cheaper items and replace them every five or ten years. There is nothing wrong with this as you can change your style when you purchase your new set.
