As we are approaching the official start of summer, it is time to enjoy those outdoor activities. This includes grilling out, or simply relaxing with your new patio set following a long hard day at work. Need to update that patio set, or you have never had one? Then you need to look first at Walker Edison for quality furniture at a reasonable price.
Live Outside the Box Again with Walker Edison
One of my favorite past time activities, during the warmer months is to prepare a meal on the grill. Both my husband and I love being outdoors in the fresh air. What is even more appealing for us is to be able to eat our grilled meal on our patio. However, therein lies the problem, as we only have a small patio set, which only sits two individuals and hardly enough room on the table to fit our plates and drinks let alone any other dishes. It hampers any thought of entertaining more than 1 or 2 other individual. When we do entertain, we are forced to eat our meal inside, which puts a damper on the joyous atmosphere of grilling. If you enjoy entertaining guests or family outdoors, you definitely need a patio set that will accommodate more than 2 individuals. You need a set such as the Sundowner Dining Set from Walker Edison. If you aren’t familiar with the Walker Edison Company, please feel free to access a prior review of mine HERE.
Thank you Walker Edison who provided me with one of their Sundowner Dining Set – Dark Brown- 7 pc for the purpose of this review. All opinions are 100% my own.
There were actually four boxes to this shipment. Three boxes, each containing two chairs and the fourth box containing the table. The Sundowner Dining Set consists of one table measuring 55-79” W x 35” D x 30” H; Weight: 85 lbs., and six chairs with cushions, each with dimensions of: 24” W x 28” D x 37” H; Weight: 24 lbs.

-Resistant to a variety of outdoor elements

-Plush, polyester cushions

In unpacking the pieces to the patio set, I was impressed with the care that Walker Edison took to ensure that none of the pieces incurred any damage during shipment. Note that each chair was carefully wrapped in plastic and cushioned within a piece of fluted cardboard. They were also secured in the box by a thick layer of Styrofoam.
I decided to begin putting this dining set together by assembling the chairs. After unpacking the box, I retrieved the Assembly Instructions, which suggested that I double check to ensure that all of the parts had been included within the box. As you can see from the photos, all of the parts were present and accounted for. The systematic instructions made the assembly of the chairs a snap in just a few minutes.
Checking off all of the parts for assembly of the chairs.
The completed project… chairs 1 and 2, four to go. Each chair is strong enough to support 250 lbs. Moving forward to assemble the table.
Blocks are attached to all table top sections.
To pull the extendable leaf of the table away, unlock the draw pull latches. You do not need to flip the table over to unlock the draw pull latches.
Table assembled. Assembly of the table was just as easy as the assembly of the chairs.
Aside from this patio set being gorgeous, there are more features that I find exceptional. First is the fact that the table can expand from 55” without the leaf and 79” with the leaf. Another feature that I appreciate is that it has a self-contained butterfly leaf. No more worries about where to store the leaf or leaves to the table.
While I did not clock myself in the assembly process of this patio set, I would venture to say that from start to finish, I spent probably around 4-5 hours; however, no person helped me, and I took my time to ensure that I was thorough and followed the directions exactly.
There is one main attribute to this patio set that I would like to mention. In my opinion, the most important, is the sturdiness of the table and chairs. Trying to determine sturdiness is very important when selecting wood chairs and benches. This is because sturdiness is a good indicator of how long a chair or bench will last, and a test for quality furniture. The following are some features to look for when trying to get an indication of sturdiness.
The outside rungs or posts on each side of the chair back should project all the way through the seat to the underside of the seat. This feature makes the rungs or posts less likely to break off. The number of posts or spindles that are glued into the chair seat are an indication of chair back sturdiness. Generally, the more the posts and spindles going into the seat, the greater the strength of the chair back. When you put pressure on the chair or bench frame, does it make a lot of noise? If it does, it may fall apart in a short time. Not so with the Sundowner Dining 7-pc set. Push on the legs of the chair or bench. Do they feel secure? When you sit in the chair and sway back and forth, does the chair wobble, tip, or creak? Does it feel sturdy and is it level with the floor? No wobbly chairs in this Sundowner Dining Set. Neither does it creak when you sit in the chairs.
If you love the style of the Sundowner Dining 7-pc set, but don’t have a lot of room on your patio, you can select the Sundowner Chat Set -Dark Brown 4-pc. This set includes a coffee table, love-seat and two chairs with cushions. However, if neither of these sets are to your liking, Walker Edison has a wide selection of outdoor patio sets from which to select.
Aside from the Sundowner Dining 7-pc set, Walker Edison also carries a nice selection of other various products such as bedroom, living room, home office, and outdoor and patio furniture. All of the Walker Edison products can be purchased through a variety of e-commerce and traditional retailers, allowing consumers the flexibility to shop their favorite sites and stores.
I absolutely love my new Sundowner Dining 7-pc set. It is the perfect outdoor patio set that comes complete with the umbrella opening. Designed to comfortably seat six, but with the self-contained butterfly leaf, it will easily accommodate larger gatherings or a growing family. This set ships ready-to-assemble with necessary hardware, wrench, and assembly instructions included, as well as a toll-free number and online support. The only tool that is not included is a screwdriver, which you will need for the assembly process. Go ahead and have a party to celebrate whatever event comes to mind with a new outdoor patio set or other fine furniture from Walker Edison. Live outside of the box again with Walker Edison today.
