I ordered the black alpine glider. It looks like they painted it black over another finish without any preparation to the surface. The paint is full of blisters, peeling off and was packaged without allowing the paint to dry so it stuck to the box and the plastic wrap left lines all over it. Some of the wood is split. We decided it would be too much hassle to return it, so my husband put it together and made some repairs. It didn't have very good instructions and we'll have to re-paint it. I would not recommend this product!
It took 2 months to receive my glider, never was told it was on back order until a phone call to them right before it was shipped. Was not happy to be billed 2 months before I got my product. Would have liked to know it would have taken that long before ordered. Now summer is almost over, and I just received my glider. Quality, is so- so You get what you pay for, just wish I has it a lot sooner.
When I put up this umbrella for the first time, I was impressed by the smooth fabric and well-constructed pole that allows the umbrella to be more easily extended than many rope-and-pulley systems that I have used before. the light brown color is richer than the picture showed. However, I bought this item because it is advertised as being a 9' unit, when in fact it is really only slightly over 8'. So, I have mixed feelings about this purchase. If you want an 8' umbrella that seems reasonably well-put-together for the price, all is well. But if you want a 9' umbrella, this is not the one for you.

We only had our Zero Gravity chairs for 2 summers (barely used a total of 4 months) and the "bungee cord" used has rotted so that the chairs are no longer useable. Would like to at least be able to re-string the chairs but cannot seem to get any heavy cord. These chairs were used on a north deck (limited sun)and have always been kept in dry storage in the off season!

The set is a good size, well designed and folds easily. Unfortunately, the finish was very poor. Some of the table top boards were slightly cracked. The yellow paint coating was thin, streaked and incomplete in some areas.
I believe the product was mis-represented as an outdoor set. We wanted a set for outdoor use, but when this set arrived, it had a card saying that for outdoor use it should be coated with with an appropriate exterior finish.
A direct replacement for the same one I bought years ago. It is a great umbrella. Only maroons would leave any umbrella up in very windy conditions. Treat it well and it will last. Where the two poles screw together I did a little work to strengthen by adding glue to the surfaces between the metal sleeves and the wooden poles. That connection point is the weak point and should be strengthened. I would buy it again, and probably will, years from now.
We were needing to replace the chair cushions and I looked for 3 months for something different than what I was seeing in the local stores. I''d checked many different web sites, and found these at Lowes (really liked the pattern). But, before I ordered them, I also went back to the web looking for the best price. I ordered 6, plus the outdoor curtains. We are very happy with the look and have received many compliments. Project completed 11/2015.
It''s as simple as this first time we tried to use it, just by opening it up one of the wooden beams broke ,it would not stand straight no matter what we did and the pole had cracks and breaks . It was the worst thing I have ever bought would not recommend it at all !!
This is the perfect market umbrella for the price. Classic style and neutral color work well together. Please not this was purchased for use as a market/sun shade/style item. No intention of leaving out in elements (rain).

Nice design,a great bang for the bucks, easy to use...and big enough to cover my table..or provide nice coverage for a seating area..should hae bought 2! So, since no more free shipping special, it''s off to Lowes I go.....
These are very nice looking and well made cushions. They just are not as large as I expected them to be.
The thickness is good but the chair cushions are on the small size.
I had measured my porch set and they should have fit better.
The colors are very bright and they look nice on the pieces. Will have to wait until they have been sit on to see what others think.
Ordered these cushions hoping they would be ''good enough'' to serve their purpose. To my delight, they were better than I could have imagined. I looked high and low in local stores but never found the pattern, color(s), thickness of pad to my liking. I took a chance on these. I am so glad I did. I would highly, highly recommend. I live in the southwest desert (Phoenix) where there certainly is no lack of intense sunshine. These are perfect. Have had many compliments from visitors. You will NOT be disappointed. Give them a try.
How would you compare the item you received to the way it was displayed on the site?

We bought three of these umbrellas. This is the first season to use them. The wood skeletal has already snapped and several of the the others are bowed and the pulley seems to slip from the runners. Very Disappointed!

Within a week of using this umbrella the pole has already become quite wobbly at the 1/2-way point, where the two parts are screwed together. Today one of the spokes broke. It was a bit windy, but not THAT windy. I have had other umbrellas in the same price range that have been a lot more durable and of much better quality.
It arrived undamaged. It was easy to put together. I ordered a granite base to use with it. It gives good shade. The price was excellent. Love the vented top. Make sure you collapse it if there is bad weather brewing.
I have several of these umbrellas. They only last a season or two when constantly exposed to the elements, but for the price I am satisfied. Overall, they look good. The natural color seems to hold up well, whereas the red tends to fade.
