Be warned, this is a sale price, and there’s no telling when it will end. The original price is under $160.
When you purchase these chairs, you can rest assured that the wicker is going to last for a least fifteen years, which is common for this particular material. Not only will the wicker last a long time just because it is the nature of the material, but with minimal maintenance, you can help prolong it’s longevity. To clean the wicker, all you need to do is use a damp sponge and wipe away the dirt.
You’ll find that the deep mocha color of the wicker and the creamy beige cushion will accent any home beautifully. Not only will it look great on your patio, but it is lightweight enough to move it to other spots in your hard without any hassle.
When we were trying to decide if this chair is worth your hard earned money, we looked at the reviews from other customers on Amazon to see what they had to say. Since the chair had 79% positive reviews, we feel that yes, perhaps this chair is a good purchase, especially if you enjoy the look of Adirondack but you don’t want a heavy wooden piece of furniture.
We do recommend that if you purchase this chair, you do not use the hardware that is included with the chair, simply because there has been numerous complaints about how quickly the screws and other hardware rusted.
We do recommend that you spend an additional $15 on stainless steel hardware. Or, better yet, if you have stainless steel screws in your garage, use them. While it is a slight inconvenience to use different hardware than what is provided, you will have a beautiful and comfortable wicker seat that is not going to rust within two months of purchase!
While the chair does come with a seat cushion, if you are concerned about the support with this chair, you can use a lumbar pillow to give you that extra bit of comfort that you may be looking for while you watch the sunset or just enjoying a cup of tea with your loved one. Either way, we feel this chair is worth the purchase!
