What do you get in the box
In the one big box (49.5 inches long, 29 inches wide and 34.5 inches high) you will get two straight back chairs, a love seat, and a rectangular smoked glass top coffee table that will need some assembly. The seating will have resin wicker backs and metal straps to support the seat cushions. The frames are made from steel with a powder-coated finish for durability and the resin wicker is a 7 mm thick woven material.
The coffee table will be 40 inches long, 20 inches wide and 18 inches tall. No leg levelers on this set, the proper assembly will l level your table. The top is a steel rim frame with a tempered smoked glass insert. The leg supports are made from resin wicker, this table does not have a lower shelf for storage.
The seating has metal straps for seat cushion support and will support 225 pounds for each seating position. The backs have woven resin wicker so that you can sit in this set without the back cushions, seat cushions are needed to use this set. The seating pieces will have a matching wicker skirt that is below the cushions. Your chairs have a round base to let them both swivel and metal bars for a rocking motion for extra comfort.
Your chairs 26 inches wide, 30 inches deep, and 35.5 inches tall. The seat is 13 inches tall without the 4-inch thick cushions to sit on. The love seat is 48 inches wide with the same other dimensions. Two metal bars will produce the rocking motion for the chairs.
The cushions are covered in an Olefin fabric, one of the better fabrics for outdoor use. The pillows have polyester fabric that will not hold up as well. Having storage for you fabric items when not needed will extend their life outside. I have written several articles on storage solutions for your outdoor cushions.
Assembly and care of your conversation set
Most people found this furniture very easy to assemble with the included tools. Use the box to assemble your furniture on to protect the finish from being scratched as it will have to lay on the painted surface to assemble.
The table will require the top to be upside down, attach a leg to each corner. The legs will connect with a resin wicker panel for support. Sit up on the legs for the final tightening of hardware for proper leveling. Insert the glass top and you are done.
The love seat will require the arms/front legs to be attached to the back sections with legs. The seat section will be the final part before sitting on the legs for the final tightening. Add cushions and your love seat is ready.
Your chairs will need a little more work with a swivel base. The arms attach to the back, then the seat base will attach to this assembly. Sit this assembly upright on a flat surface for the final tightening of hardware for the best results. Two metal bars are then attached between the seat base and seat assembly, these bars will give you the rocking motion. Add cushions and you are ready to enjoy your set.
You should use a mild soap and water mixture to care for your set when needed. Any harsh mixture, even glass cleaner can damage the painted surfaces and start it to rust. The cushions and pillows can be cleaned with a damp cloth. Storage of your fabric items will give your set a longer life in outdoor conditions.

My final thoughts on this set
Having one of these Outdoor Patio Conversation Sets will be a great addition to any outdoor space that will need a seating space with a coffee table. For under $500 the Better Homes and Gardens Providence 4 piece patio conversation set will include a love seat, two swivel rockers, and a coffee table that will have resin wicker accents. Having chairs with motion and seating with thick cushions will make this set somewhere you will want to stay for hours with a cool drink to share with friends.
This conversation set will be a good addition to any outdoor space that is looking for the expensive wicker look and the modest price. The powder-coated steel frames will last for a long time in outdoor environments. The week point for this set is like most, the fabric items, pillows, and cushions will need storage out of the elements if they are to last for more than a couple of years.
