If you like the look of the slatted wood design and the comfort of cushions, the Sparks Small Wooden Patio sets could be your solution.
The acacia wood will last a lifetime for most if you just treat it with a good hardwood sealer once a year. The cushions will need a storage solution to make them last more than a couple of years.

Features and construction
The frames are made of Acacia wood with stainless hardware. It will have a slatted finish on all of the panels of this set, the arms, backs of the seating and the ends of the table. The table top has a closed slatted design that will look like a solid top. Your drinks will sit well on this type of tabletop. It may hold water after a rain for a while.
The arms will have an arched design and the top of the seating will have an arched design also. Back and ends of the seating will share the same open slatted design.
The coffee table will be very strong designed with the solid top, end panels, and lower support bar. A matching slatted design will fill the end panels to make the table match the chairs very well.
The seating will have cushions with teal colored polyester cushions for both the seats and backs. A Velcro strap on each corner will hold the cushions in place.
Size and special options
This is an average sized conversation set with two chairs, a love seat, and coffee table. The teal cushions will give seating comfort.
Each chair will be 27.5 inches deep, 24 inches wide, and 33.5 inches high. The love seat will be 27.5 inches deep, 55 inches wide, and 33.5 inches high. No weight capacity is given for this set.
The coffee table is average sized for a conversation set at 24 inches across, 40 inches long, and 18.25 inches high. This will not feel like it is too low to grab your drink or snacks off of it.
The Acacia wood frames will last very well in outdoor conditions when treated once a year. Some sets of this type of wood furniture have been around for hundreds of years and still look new.
Assembly and Care
A small amount of assembly will be needed to use your patio set. Should be little problem with hole alignment like in similar metal sets.
Stainless hardware will hold all of the pieces together, this will keep rust down after assembly. Cushions will be held in place with Velcro straps. This will also let you easily remove them for storage when they are not needed.
Care of your furniture should be with a damp clothe for most stains. A yearly treatment of the Acacia Wood with a tongue oil or a similar sealant will keep it looking like new for many years. This will also keep any stains from getting into the wood.
Cushions should be stored when not in use. I have several storage solutions in my articles here for you to choose from to keep your cushions out of the weather.

I prefer the Amazonia Brooklyn set as it does not have any cushions, it uses a poly sling fabric to create seating comfort. I like this fabric as I have several sets that have been in the outdoor weather for over 15 years.

Final thoughts on Sparks Small Wooden Patio Sets
I like the Acacia wood for outdoor furniture, the initial cost is a lot higher than metal or some of the resin wicker on the market today. The advantages of the Sparks patio furniture are its Acacia wood and the cushions with straps to keep them in place while sitting and for easy removal to store when not needed.
