Any one got any? And is it any good? I imagine it is all sticky and sweaty of the back of one's legs, or no? And any practical tips on what style is most sensible with kids/dogs/grannies etc

Thank you but I have now ordered another one.

The cubes are coming back in stock in August if you can wait that long @marmitelover55.

It looks like they have a non-chunky set for £254.

I'm on my phone though so maybe my eyes are deceiving me.

I had a look at the cube sets on this link and they look lovely but all ard out of stock sad We are looking for a good value nice set but can't find one, so if anyone else has any recommendations I would love to know please.

We got a patio set from Argos a few years ago and it honestly looks brand new. The table is a bit annoying as it doesn't have a flat surface but it has all lasted really well considering it is out all year round

I always think they look ideal places for spiders to hide in - that's why I don't like them.

search for Hartman garden furniture, we have had ours a couple of years and still looks good. Most garden centers stock it if you want to see it in the flesh but then order online. We saved £200 on ours.

Seems the prices vary so much. Have been looking for a dining set and a rattan sofa for myself. Have been to Homebase, but to be honest it all looks a bit cheap and won't last long. I personally wouldn't mind paying a bit more if it means it will last longer. I'm a bit dubious about B&Q and Argos as we have had stuff from both in the past and it just doesn't last. Have looked at the www.thefurniturecompany247.co.uk/Rattan-Garden-Sofa-Sets/Tresco-Brown-synthetic-rattan-Sofa-Set.aspx and looks lovely quality for not much difference in price. There's also some rattan furniture sets on Amazon and ebay but not sure about spending so much without being able to actually see it first.

We bought some this 'summer' again got a great price on eBay, prices vary depending on the style.. The modern, square more box-like ones cost more than the type with a softer shape iyswim. Am happy with it, all the cushions (seat and back) are a bit of hassle to get in and out but the one thing I would say is because we've got dark brown it gets really hot if it's in full sun, seriously the arms (which are quite wide) get too hot to touch. Just worth noting.

I had some from an eBay shop last year. £400 for chunky square 2 seater, table, & 2 armchairs, with washable cushions. It's fantastic. Just need some sun now.

Am sold. Will begin my purchasing research... (cue 6 months of faffing before buying jut as summer ends). Thanks all!

I have a set. I bought it to spruce up the garden in teh last house we had and now we are in rented it has been out in the garden all winter and still looks pristine!

LOL, was just looking at rattan furniture on ebay and next. Bloody expensive. So annoying as we 'won' some on ebay last year and then ended up cancelling the order as the seller (furniture shop) arsed us around and failed to deliver in the promised 7 days. After over a month we'd had enough but it is now so much more expensive sad

We have some - polyrattan barcelona ellister cube set - comes with cream cushions (£475 all in from Greenfingers - bought online). Great value - pretty comfy to sit on. They say the cushions are weather proof but found they go abit mouldy if left out in rain and dont fully dry so we take them in. Got a cube cover for the set from EBAY I think...

Forgot to say dog hasn't eaten it yet....

I got a couple of chairs from B&Q last year in the sale, something like £65 for the two . Wasn't expecting much but they are really comfortable and I wish I'd got more.

There is a group on deal running at the moment. Sofa, chairs and table for a couple of hundred
