- What if the furniture does not turn out to be what I was looking for?

While we do our best to photograph and describe each collection accurately, it may not be what you are picturing for your patio space. You can return your furniture per our Return & Refund Policy. We only ask that you return the set in its original boxes and pay for the shipping cost back to us.

- My cushions are retaining water, what do I do?

When cushions are left out in rainy weather conditions for an extended amount of time, you may notice they are holding pounds of water inside. In most cases, you can turn the cushions on their side and wait a few days for them to fully drain and dry out. Sunbrella® cushions are made to protect against light rain but are not indestructible. We recommend bringing cushions inside or using patio covers during heavy rains. If you are concerned with the quality of your water-logged cushions after a few days of them drying out, please contact Sunbrella® directly.

- Can I order an extra set of cushions or additional pieces?

In certain cases, yes! Our furniture is packaged together so it would depend on our current inventory of loose products. Just give us a call or an email and we’ll see what we can do. Please include your email, phone number, product and quantity of items to speed up the process.

- Are funiture covers included?

No, we do recommend the coverstore.com however we are not affiliated.

- The set I want is sold out, is it coming back?

If the set you like is sold out, in most cases it will come back soon. Sets that are sold out currently will most likely be expected to arrive in the spring season.

- Can I customize fabrics & colors?

Unfortunately, not at this time. The sets come the fabric and pillows as featured in the online photography.

 

Umbrellas

- My umbrella isn’t tilting, how do I use the tilt feature on my umbrella?

All of our umbrellas are auto-tilt. In order to activate it, use the crank to open the umbrella to the fullest. Then you can crank it once more so that it can tilt.

- Are your umbrellas made with Sunbrella Fabric too?

We have two different types of umbrellas, 10ft Market Umbrellas and Solar-Lit Umbrellas. While the Market Umbrellas are made with Sunbrella fabric, our new Solar-Lit Umbrellas are made with acrylic fabric. All umbrellas are residential use only; not designed for commercial use.

 

Maintenance

- How do I keep my fabric clean?

It's easier than you think! Usually, mild soap and water will do the trick. While some of our cushions have zippers, we do not recommend throwing your cushion covers in the wash! Over time this will definitely fade the color of the fabric. For the tougher stains, check out Sunbrella®’s cleaning tips here and watch the video below!
