Consumers have expressed satisfaction with the unique look of this set and how easily it fits into smaller spaces. Some users, however, had difficulty putting it together, and some even had to resort to using tools other than the ones provided to do so.
Garden Treasures Arbington 4-Piece Steel Frame Patio Set
The Verdict: For the large and value-conscious family wanting to spend time outdoors in comfort.
Pros: High weight limit. Seats up to five people total.
Cons: Prone to holding water and becoming moldy.
The Garden Treasures Arbington 4-Piece set includes a coffee table, two rocking lounge chairs, and a sofa. Cushions made of a weather-resistant woven resin in a neutral shade are included. It should be noted, however, that some users have said the cushions are prone to collecting water and becoming moldy in rainy months. Because of this, a covered patio is likely the best place for this set.
All four pieces in the Arbington set are made with heavy-duty steel frames that are powder coated and durable. And it’s those durable frames that give the rocking chairs their 300 lb. weight capacity and the sofa its 600 lb. weight capacity. This set is priced at $598 with everything included.

The Verdict: A cushy resting place for couples looking for a cozy place to chat or to add to their patio furniture collection.
Pros: Cushions are thick and comfortable. Set matches well with other pieces from the same collection.
Cons: Only fits two people. May arrive with stains or scratches.
The Elliot Creek 2-Piece set from Garden Treasures has a price tag of $340. It comes with a two-person sofa and a coffee table, both made with steel frames coated in weather-resistant slate-colored powder. The olefin fabric is UV and stain resistant.
Most consumers found the sofa to have very comfortable cushions. However, some people received damaged goods out of the box, with issues including stains and scratches. Still, lots of users enjoyed this smaller set on its own or in conjunction with other pieces from the Elliot Creek collection.
La-Z-Boy Outdoor Colton 4-Piece Wicker Frame Patio Conversation Set
The Verdict: A stylish statement for the big spender wanting something that’ll last.
Pros: Extremely high quality. Wicks water well.
Cons: Cushions are a slightly different color than advertised. Difficult to put together.
La-Z-Boy’s Colton 4-Piece wicker set includes Sunbrella cushions, which is a quick-drying, all weather fabric. Handwoven resin wicker styling is present on the included two chairs and sofa. A slatted coffee table is the fourth piece in the set, and four decorative throw pillows are provided, as well.
This patio set comes in at $1,699.99, making it the most expensive offering on our list. Consumers seem overall to be happy with the quality of the pieces they received, but many were surprised at the colors that came, which were slightly different than what was shown online. Some had trouble putting the set together, as well.
Garden Treasures Greenway 5-Piece Steel Frame Patio Conversation Set
The Verdict: Perfect for the entertainer hoping to delight guests with modern modular seating.
Pros: Designed to be either individual chairs or to slot together for one long couch.
Cons: Chairs prone to rusting at the bottom. Cushions soak up water.
The Greenway 5-Piece set from Garden Treasures may look like it’s only one long couch, but it is in fact a set of four chairs and one corner seat. All five seats are cushioned with tan olefin fabric that is fade-resistant. This set is $598, which is the same price as the Arbington 4-Piece above.
While consumers are happy with the interesting design of this set, some have found that it may not be as outdoor-friendly as it claims to be. The chairs have been stated to rust at the bottom after a year of being outside and the cushions may be prone to soaking up rainwater.
