When the Madison Outdoor Conversation Set gets to your home, you'll start putting together guest lists for years worth of barbeques, garden parties, quiet afternoon lunches and late night confabs with friends and family. Each piece in this set has no shortage of modern touches on the rust-proof aluminum frames covered by a subtle, near-black powder-coat that hides shades of charcoal and brown in its dark finish. Ample foam cushions rest on the chairs, loveseat and ottomans, held in place by discreet Velcro tabs on the reverse of each cushion. The grey cushions and striped accent pillows are all covered by a fade-resistant outdoor fabric that cleans easily with mild soap and water. Both the end table and coffee table are topped by a solid surface of faux-stone with a speckled composition that sets off each piece and will stand up to whatever climate you call home. Each faux stone top is a single piece made from ground stone and industrial resin that is as hard and attractive as the real thing while being easy to maintain and heavy enough to withstand windy climates. Each chair weighs 15 lbs and has a weight capacity of 250 lbs. The loveseat weighs in at 33 lbs and has a weigh capacity of 500 lbs. The end table weighs 15 lbs, the coffee table weighs 41 lbs, and each ottoman tops the scale at a mere 5 lbs. Some assembly is required.
