Its not a bad deal, but beware that this furniture is not too comfortable. We went and sat on one in the local Homebase. It has quite a low back and the cushions are quite thin.
For occasional use though, it would be ok and I haven’t found anything cheaper

do you have to cover it up when not using it? also do you have to store it in winter?

Looks same as Aldi one who do a made to measure cover.
Well done on your post but this furniture feels very light, not very strong.. I felt like it was going Cave in when I sat on it (I am only 14 stones)

If it’s the same as last years version it’s very sturdy and got a lot of weight to it vs say Ketter furniture so it shouldn’t blow away with a cover on it.
This is beautiful but what do I do when it is raining? Do I keep it outside? My outside storage is not big enough.

The unit can stay out but the cushions need to be covered

I bought this set last year from Homebase. I’ve had the sofa left out all winter and it seems fine. Just put the cushions away

Thanks for your reply. It is good to hear that product can withstand winter. I could find place for cushions.
I've seen a couple of discount codes for homebase but there doesn't seem to be anywhere on the checkout to enter . Can anyone help?
The codes are DISCOUNT15 and ex20 for 15 or 20% off not sure if they work

Thanks for the tip. Is quality good on the aldis set?

Again if same as last year it was crazily all in one giant almost completely square box. The deliver people suggested some people couldn’t even get them into their house boxed (fit through my door) so a polo might be difficult. Given you can reserve for free and if you are near a Homebase you could prob go and try and as it has to be assembled if you unbox it then it should fit in a polo.

They say that they are best stored uncovered. You do need to take off the cushions though so you need to have somewhere to store them. I have the Argos version, I find it quite comfy especially for a lie down nap in the sun

Which is better, this or the Aldi one?


This is what I'd like to know, look the same really.
The Aldi one looks like last years argos one which is the version I have but with a couple of side pillows
Very tempting, but memories of putting the cheap one I bought a few years ago together make me want to cry

It was 20 quid. Sure aldi will be selling them again soon .its made to measure so a good fit for corner unit
Just went into store and looked and sat on the display model. It’s a fair price for £200. If you’re on a budget, go for it!

You’d be comfy for a couple of hours or so but I wouldn’t want to be sat on it all evening.

Absolutely not.

I got a set last year from Homebase and the box was massive! Sent my dad for it and then transported it from his to mine.

Barely fit it inside the back of a black cab, then had to unpack the entire contents and just about fir it all in my saloon car like a massive game of Tetris.
Bought this last year, decent quality for the price. A lot easier to put together with a socket set in stead of the supplied tool.
The box is big, it wouldn't fit in my 5dr 1 series with the seats down so I had to take everything out the box and stack it in the car.
I would cover it over winter. The frame is 6mm steel rod/wire with a light dip coating of paint. This has rust in the welds out of the factory where the paint didn't penetrate the bad welds.
Will leave rust marks on your patio.
So IMHO it is a low quality frame but what can you expect for the price.
i purchased the exact same one from homebase 6 months ago. its not the cheapest its been as i got it for £149.00
i have this. it looks so bad after just one season. sun made it look cheap and old not to mention bird poop which is not coming out!
not outdoor imo.

forgot to mention: not comfortable to sit on at all, just the opposite. would be good for 1 beer sitting time but if you want to down a few, the back is too low so ended up pulling out old wooden chairs. pointless.

Have to disagree, we have purchased one and find it very comfy and it looks really nice.
