Good morning all!
Today I have a review for you all of the gorgeous Jakarta Conversation Sofa Set from the ASDA furniture range in Charcoal we are in the process of sorting our garden so it looks a bit like a tornado hit it at the moment! So we decided to set it up at Ben's parents as we had planned a BBQ there for the weekend anyway so there were plenty of seats for everyone!
I must've been living in a shell for a few years because I had no idea ASDA even had garden furniture, and I was pleasantly surprised at just how much they offer! When we were given the opportunity to review something I spent about 2 days browsing and struggling to choose exactly what we wanted! We finally decided on this and boy did we make the right decision!
The set came flat packed but it was also in one huge box which didn't fit through our front door nor over the back either (we have steps leading up to our garden), so the only option would've been to open the box and take bits out piece by piece, although it wouldn't take too long, it's just a little bit of a pain! As I said above, we were planning on setting it up at Ben's parents for now, so they happily picked it up and we got unpacking! Everything was tightly packaged and had no damage whatsoever! Definitely 5 out of 5 for that!
Lightweight aluminium frames for sofa, chairs and table which won't rust!
Fully woven seats and backs, giving greater support to the cushions, but can be used without the cushions if necessary too!
Chair and table frames include stainless steel bolts as standard, to give improved corrosion resistance against wet weather
2 wide and extra deep arm chairs, ideal for long afternoons in the sun
A large double seat sofa, with 120cm internal width, and 70cm deep seat cushions
A 100 x 52cm colour matched coffee table with toughened glass
Cushions are made from heavy duty exterior grade spun polyester!
Removable cushion covers with zip fastening for easy cleaning
Finished with an all weather poly-rattan weave in a 2 tone dark chocolate brown
"The Jakarta Collection combines traditional styling with modern materials to give great quality, stylish garden furniture. The Jakarta range includes all the furniture and accessories you need to transform your garden, whether you're interested in outdoor dining and entertaining, or simply relaxing with the family."
The one thing that everyone mentioned out of everything else was just how comfortable this was, a lot of outdoor furniture we've tried have had cushions that sink down once your weight is on them, however these simple mould to your body and support your back too, I think a few of us could've happily had a nap on them! Haha. I love that the armchairs are extra wide, they feel more like snuggle chairs and you can properly put your feet up and get comfy, perfect in the Summer for BBQ's and gatherings but also in the colder months, snuggle up with a fire pit and a hot chocolate, bliss!
Overall I am super impressed with the quality and comfort of this set, I will be honest and say I wasn't sure what quality to expect but I was pleasantly surprised and will definitely be recommending this to friends and family! For now we will be keeping it at Ben's parents for Abbie's upcoming Birthday party in September, so it's definitely going to be well used, especially if this sunshine stays!
