Are you interested in outdoor entertaining? Are you a bit heavier than average, or do you regularly entertain family and friends who are? If you answered yes to either of those questions, then you’ll love this, our latest roundup review.

Let’s face it: Finding furniture that’s robust and rugged enough to support heavier folks properly can be a daunting challenge. Most of the furniture on the market today was designed to support around 300 pounds of user weight. While that’s fine for about 90% of the market, the simple truth is that there are plenty of people who weigh more than that. There just aren’t that many furniture options available.

Finding them can be a bit like searching for a needle in the proverbial haystack. Worse, a lot of what you do find are individual pieces. If you’re looking for an all-in-one solution in the form of a unified set that has a consistent aesthetic, the search can be an incredibly frustrating one.

That’s exactly why this review was written! Our primary goal is to find the best high-weight capacity outdoor furniture sets on the market today and compare them against each other. To that end, we scoured the internet and came up with several great options.

Armed with several possibilities, we started researching and comparing them against each other. Throughout our research, we found and declared an overall winner. We’ll introduce you to our top pick in just a moment, but before we do that, we want to take a step back and offer a high-level overview of our top pick and the other furniture sets it competed against to give you a glimpse of what lies ahead.

Author’s Note: This roundup review is of personal importance to me because I am the target market. As a 6’6” tall and weighs in at 340 pounds, I’m in the club. “Regular-sized” furniture is of no use to me whatsoever. A regular-sized chair feels like a toy.

I’m currently saving up for a home of my own (renting at the moment), and when I make a purchase, I’m going to need some good, well-built, rugged furniture. As I wrote this piece, I was writing it for everybody else who’s in the same situation I’m in, and, at the same time, I was also writing a guidebook for myself. Those are the reasons why I wanted to make sure it was as thorough and as complete as possible. That helps you, and it helps me too!

Our Selection Criteria

As the name of this review indicates, our main goal here was to find outdoor furniture sets that were capable of supporting a lot of user weight

Unfortunately, the phrase “high weight capacity” is too vague to be useful. To that end, and given that most of the furniture on the market today support in the neighborhood of 300 pounds, we arbitrarily decided that to even be considered for inclusion here, the furniture in question needed to be able to support at least 400 pounds of user weight.

Naturally, the more weight a given piece of furniture supports, the better, but 400 pounds was our minimum standard.

Beyond that, we were looking for comprehensive furniture sets that provided buyers with an all-in-one solution for outdoor entertaining. We think that most people looking for a set of furniture probably don’t have much right now and are not interested in trying to cobble something together piecemeal.

In addition to that, we were looking for quality furniture offered at a good price. The value proposition really matters!

Taken together, these things gave us a roadmap. A means we could use to evaluate our finalists in a logical manner, which ultimately revealed our top pick.

Of course, we readily admit that there’s a lot of subjectivity in any analysis like this, which means that you may look at the same information and reach an entirely different conclusion. We understand that, which is exactly why we wanted to provide full details on all of the products that made the final cut.

With that said, let’s look at our overall winner and the other finalists it found itself in competition with.

Our Pick: RST Brands Deco 8-Piece Outdoor Furniture Set

Our Pick
RST Brands Deco 8-Piece Outdoor Furniture Set
4.4

Recommended For: Anyone weighing up to 400 pounds who is looking for an all-in-one outdoor furniture solution.

Check Availability Read Detailed Review

Our top pick is offered by RST Brands, which isn’t exactly an industry Titan but is a well-respected company that takes customer service seriously. This is a great set, but it does come with one significant potential drawback, which we’ll get to in a moment.

The first thing to say about this Deco set is that it’s huge. Eight pieces in all, which include: an outdoor sofa in two sections, a pair of club chairs, a pair of Ottomans, a small side table, and a coffee table. Basically, everything you need to start entertaining in your outdoor spaces. We would like to note that RST Brands’ Deco Collection also offers a 6-piece set. Before we say more than that, let’s take a moment to review each piece by the numbers:

  • Sofa Dimensions: 96” W x 36” D x 32” H
  • Club Chair Dimensions: 30” W x 33” D x 32” H
  • Ottoman Dimensions: 30” W x 20” D x 17” H
  • Coffee Table Dimensions: 46” L x 26” W x 16” H
  • Side Table Dimensions: 20” L x 20” W x 19” H
  • Seat Heights: 18”
  • Seat Width: 24”
  • Seat Depth: 24”
  • Maximum Supported Weight: 400 pounds (chairs), 800 pounds (sofa)
Orange Color, RST Brands Deco 8 Piece Outdoor Furniture Set, Elegant Design

These are fantastic numbers across the board. They all work exceptionally well with each other. The seat height is superb, being comfortably inside the big and tall range, which typically starts at 18” and goes to 22” or higher.

The seat width is excellent. Even if you are quite close to the maximum supported weight limit of the chairs, you should have no trouble fitting comfortably in the seat. The rest of the numbers paint every piece in the set as being designed for bigger, taller, and heavier users.

The side table is a bit on the small side, but it’s still big enough to be useful. The coffee table is quite good, though if we could, we’d love to get the company to add a small storage shelf under the tabletop.

Aluminum Frame Set, RST Brands Deco 8 Piece Outdoor Furniture Set, Side View

The furniture itself sports a tubed aluminum frame, powder-coated to help it better withstand the elements, and wrapped in rattan that’s stained different shades of grey, giving it a complex, appealing look. Even better, if you decide you want a set, you can order the cushions in a modest selection of colors, two neutral options, and two bold options.

This is fantastic, as it gives you a surprising number of options in terms of establishing your outdoor aesthetic, and that’s what this set is all about. Unless you have tons of space, this is a set of furniture you buy if you don’t yet have any and are looking to meet most, if not all, of your outdoor furniture needs in one shot.

On the comfort front, RST sticks to the basics, using conventional block foam padding with hardy, weather-resistant, quick-drying material stretched over it.

There’s nothing wrong with using block foam as padding. In fact, it is pretty much the industry standard and is used as padding in the majority of furniture sold today. Even better, it’s present in generous amounts here.

Many outdoor furniture sets are designed as occasional seating. They’re fine for sitting for a couple of hours at a stretch. Still, a lot of the furniture made for outdoor use isn’t really optimized for lounging for extended periods. This set is. You could while away an entire afternoon in comfort and style on this set.

Another thing we like about the set is that it includes throw pillows in whatever accent color you select. We love the extras and attention to detail here.

Now let’s talk about assembly. It will probably come as a surprise to no one that some assembly is required where this furniture set is concerned. After all, most of the furniture you can buy online today comes unassembled.

The good news is that most of the hard work has already been done. When the set hits your door, each piece will be in its own box, and it’s already partially assembled. All you have to do is finish things out. Even better, the production quality is quite high, and the instructions are clear, so the process isn’t especially daunting.

Cushions and Pillows, RST Brands Deco 8 Piece Outdoor Furniture Set, Front View

The problem is, there’s a lot of it. Eight pieces, and eight boxes in all, so you can expect to devote the better part of a day to the task, even if you have someone helping you. Unfortunately, RST does not offer an expert assembly option with this set, so if you find the prospect of putting your own furniture together, you’ll definitely want to have an assistant standing by on the day it arrives to lend a hand.

Earlier, we mentioned one major problem with this set, and it’s something we have to make mention before we close out this mini-review: It’s expensiveSeriously expensive. It will give you a bit of sticker shock, and its hefty price tag may put it out of the reach of some prospective buyers.

Still, this is definitely a case of getting what you pay for. It’s top-quality furniture that will provide you with years of reliable service is you properly maintain it.

The only other minor complaint we have is that it’s rattan. If you like rattan, that won’t be an issue for you at all. It’s not our first choice as outdoor furniture materials go, but despite that fact, this set won us over. Still, if you’re not a fan, that fact, combined with the hefty price tag, may make it a deal-breaker for you.

In our view, this set is well-deserving of top honors here in our roundup review of the best high weight capacity outdoor furniture sets. It’s simply magnificent from top to bottom, and we highly recommend it.

RST Brands Cannes 6-Piece Loveseat Outdoor Furniture Set
4.4

Recommended For: Anyone weighing up to 400 pounds who has plenty of space to work with and who’s looking for an all-in-one outdoor furniture solution.

Check Latest Price Read Detailed Review

Our second-place winner here in our roundup review of the best high weight capacity patio sets is a close cousin to our top pick, consisting of only six pieces of furniture, rather than the eight offered by our overall winner. This Cannes set includes a loveseat, a pair of club chairs, an Ottoman, a small side table, and a coffee table. The loveseat isn’t as big as the full-sized sofa offered by the larger set, but that’s not a bad thing, especially if you’re a little cramped for space.

As we did with this set’s big brother, before we go further, let’s take a moment to do a quick stats review and look at each piece by the numbers:

  • Loveseat Dimensions: 57” W x 33” D x 31” H
  • Club Chair Dimensions: 31” W x 33” D x 31” H
  • Ottoman Dimensions: 31” W x 20” D x 16.5” H
  • Coffee Table Dimensions: 46” L x 26” W x 16” H
  • Side Table Dimensions: 20” L x 20” W x 19” H
  • Seat Heights: 19”
  • Seat Width: 24”
  • Seat Depth: 24”
  • Maximum Supported Weight: 400 pounds (chairs), 750 pounds (loveseat)
Charcoal Grey, RST Brands 6 Piece Outdoor Furniture Set, Wide View

There are a lot of similarities between this set and our top pick, including the fact that these numbers are good across the board. The seat height is identical to that offered by the eight-piece set. The width is sufficient that even if you weigh something close to the chair’s maximum supported weight limit, you won’t have any trouble fitting comfortably into the seat.

The loveseat is understandably smaller than the sofa and supports slightly less weight. Even so, if you’re on the heavy side, it’s robust enough that you’ll be able to sit in it comfortably and have someone else sitting next to you with little to no difficulty.

Foam Padding, RST Brands 6 Piece Outdoor Furniture Set, Charcoal Grey

The side table, coffee table, and ottoman are all identical to the one offered in the larger set, so everything we said about them when we were talking about the bigger set holds true here as well.

Comfort-wise, this set is also identical to RST’s larger set, utilizing generous amounts of block foam padding with a durable and weather-resistant fabric stretched over.

Unfortunately, for reasons that aren’t entirely clear to us, the company only offers three color options here, where four colors are available if you order the 8-piece set of the Cannes Collection. The loss of one color option isn’t the end of the world. Still, it does reduce the flexibility of the set in terms of blending it in with your existing outdoor décor scheme or in defining one if you don’t yet have any outdoor furniture and are using this set to jumpstart your collection.

Note, too, that there’s enough furniture here that unless you’ve got tons of outdoor space to work with, you could easily use this as an all-in-one solution. It contains all the basics you need to start entertaining on your deck, porch, or patio from the moment you get it all put together.

That, of course, brings us to the matter of assembly. Here, we find yet more similarities between our top pick and this set. Each piece of furniture is packed in its own box, and each piece comes partially assembled, which speeds the process along greatly.

Tea/Coffee Table, RST Brands 6 Piece Outdoor Furniture Set, Charcoal Grey

Also, there’s no expert assembly option here. If you buy this set, you’ll have no choice but to bite the bullet and put it together yourself, preferably with the help of a friend.

Since each piece is packaged separately, we recommend opening one box at a time, finishing the piece inside it, and then moving onto the next box. That way, you don’t run the risk of getting pieces from different furniture components mixed up, which will complicate the process needlessly and frustrate your efforts.

Expect to spend the better part of an afternoon getting everything ready for first use. That’s not because of low production quality or unclear instructions, it’s simply that there’s quite a lot of furniture to contend with, so it’s going to take time.

Overall though, we love this set almost as much as our top pick. It’s a bit cheaper than our top pick. However, it’s still on the pricey side and again, being rattan based, if you’re not a fan, the price and the presence of that material may make it a less-than-optimal choice for you. We do, however, highly recommend it. It certainly won’t disappoint.

Budget Pick: Ohana 7 Piece Round Patio Set

Check Current Price Read Detailed Review

In third place, we find a furniture set that represents a significant departure from the first two we’ve talked about. It’s round! We love the aesthetic of this piece. It’s eye-catching and is sure to add a look of distinction to your deck, porch, or patio.

Like our top two picks here in our roundup review of the best high weight capacity patio furniture sets, this set is offered by a medium-sized, well-respected company with a reputation for both quality products and good customer service and support. If you’re interested in acquiring this set, you can buy with confidence, knowing that if there’s a problem, you’ll be well taken care of.

Before we say more, let’s continue on as we have been by looking at the core stats of each piece in the set, which includes a pair of loveseats, four Ottomans, and a round coffee table. Here are the basics of each piece:

Specification Stats, Ohana 7 Piece Round Patio Set, White Color
  • Loveseat Dimensions: 64” W x 35” D x 33” H
  • Loveseat Dimensions (when put together as intended): 128” W x 35” D x 33” H
  • Ottoman Dimensions: 32” W x 22” D x 13” H
  • Table: 30” Diameter and 13” H
  • Seat Heights: 13”
  • Seat Depth: 22”
  • Total Weight: 160 pounds
  • Maximum Supported Weight: 750 pounds per loveseat

These are generally good numbers, but we were disappointed at how low to the ground this set is. Bearing in mind that the big and tall seat height range starts at 18” and goes up from there, this set misses that mark by a significant margin. If you’re tall, that fact may make this set a non-starter for you, especially if you also have some type of mobility issue.

It should be noted, though, that once you’re actually seated, the loveseats are wide, deep, and generously padded, so the only real issue will be getting into and out of them.

The table isn’t enormous, but it’s certainly large enough to be genuinely useful, and of course, we love the supported weight limit this furniture offers.

Like our top picks, this set has a frame made of powder-coated, tubed aluminum, which allows it to support quite a lot of weight while being relatively lightweight. The dark brown rattan featured here is simply wrapped over and around the aluminum frame.

Love Seat, Ohana 7 Piece Round Patio Set, White Color

Comfort-wise, it’s highly similar to our top picks, featuring conventional block foam padding, 4” thick everywhere. That’s as much padding as is offered on a great many high-quality office chairs that are designed for all-day use, so you can easily use this set for more than occasional seating. It is well-suited to lounging and relaxing for extended periods.

Note, however, that, unlike our top picks, you don’t get any additional throw pillows, so if you want to add some, you’re on your own there. You do get two different fabric color options to choose from if you buy this set; brown or beige.

Both are neutral colors, so you’ll have an easy time getting this furniture to blend with any other outdoor décor elements you may already have, or, if you don’t yet have a clearly defined outdoor décor scheme, it’s easy to build one around this set.

Between the two, we actually recommend the brown cushions. The beige ones are quite pretty, but you’ll face a constant uphill battle trying to keep them clean and looking like new unless you’ve got your furniture in a sheltered area or buy a cover for it to help protect it when you’re not actually using it.

The fabric used to cover the cushions is a durable synthetic developed by Ohana. A material called “Spuncrylic,” which is weather and fade resistant, breathable, and quick-drying. That’s not a detail likely to make anyone decide in favor of this set over some other, but it’s important enough to at least warrant a mention. It’s a good fabric and stands up well to the elements. You will be pleased.

Ottoman Seats, Ohana 7 Piece Round Patio Set, White Color

The thing that will really make you grin from ear to ear, though, is this: If you buy this set, there is no assembly required!

Yes, you read that correctly. It will arrive at your door, ready to use. Just set it where you want it, take a few moments to get it arranged just so, and have a seat. We love that. No headaches or hassles surrounding unboxing and materials sorting, no effort to put everything together before you can start using it, just take it off the truck, put it in position, sit down and relax.

Honestly, although this set didn’t score quite as well as our top picks, this is our personal favorite. It’s got such a distinctive look that it’s hard not to fall in love with it. If you buy this set, we think you’ll be thrilled. We absolutely recommend it.

Check Alternative Read Detailed Review

In our view, this set is the best value on the market today. Tangkula is a great company, and they’re practically giving this set away. Having said that, there’s an important difference between this set of furniture and the ones we’ve talked about thus far.

Where the sets we’ve talked about so far are designed for general outdoor entertaining, this is strictly a small dining set. As such, it’s somewhat less versatile than the others. Even so, it represents a simply tremendous value for the money and is well worth taking a closer look at. Let’s start by examining the core stats, by the numbers:

  • Table Dimensions: 33” H x 24” W x 24” D
  • Chair Dimensions: 30” H x 35.5” W x 35.5” D
  • Seat Height: 18”
  • Seat Depth: 32”
  • Seat Width: 33.5”
  • Maximum Supported Weight: 400 pounds
Furniture Set, Tangkula 5 Piece Outdoor Dining Set, Black Color

There are a few things to note here. First and foremost, this set is substantially smaller than the others we’ve looked at to this point. Even if you’re a little short on space, you shouldn’t have any particular difficulty finding a permanent home for it.

Second, the seat dimensions are quite solid. 18” in height is right on the edge of the big and tall range. The seats are both wide and deep enough that even if you’re near the top end of the chair’s maximum supported weight, you won’t have a problem fitting comfortably into it.

The table is certainly large enough to enjoy a meal at, but it’s not large enough for four people to eat and to keep all the food being served on it. You’ll either need to invest in a side table for that or keep the food you’re serving indoors. Everybody will go inside to fill their plates and bring it outside.

Tea/Coffe Table, Tangkula 5 Piece Outdoor Dining Set, Black Color

Moving beyond the story that the numbers alone tell, this is rattan furniture, and not everybody is a fan of that material. If you’re not, then this probably isn’t the set you’re looking for. That said, we’re not huge fans of rattan furniture ourselves, but this set won us over. It’s good-looking, well-built furniture; big enough to be useful and small enough to fit just about anywhere. We like that very much.

The other sets we’ve talked about so far here in our roundup review of the best outdoor furniture sets for heavy weight have sported generous amounts of padding, making them ideal for lounging for extended periods. That’s decidedly not the case here.

This furniture is much more modestly padded. It’s fine for sitting for short periods, but this is simply not the kind of furniture you want to spend the better part of a day lounging in.

This is occasional seating. As long as it’s used as such, you’ll be quite happy with it. Just don’t buy it thinking that you’re getting lounging furniture. You’re definitely not.

Note, too, that there are no color options here. You get a set of black rattan furniture with cream-colored seat pads. That’s fine. The colors are neutral, which makes it easy for this set to blend in seamlessly with any other outdoor furniture you may have, or if this is the first outdoor furniture you’re investing in, then it’s easy to add other components to it later on.

The tabletop is the real talking point here. It’s white-tempered glass, and it’s absolutely gorgeous. It looks like it’s covered in frost, making it an instant conversation starter.

Outdoor Decoration, Tangkula 5 Piece Outdoor Dining Set, Black Color

As with most of the furniture sold today, if you order a set of this, it will arrive at your door in a large box and unassembled. The good news is that Tangkula is an excellent company, and the production quality of their products is exceptional.

That, combined with clear, concise instructions, makes it a simple matter to get it ready for first use. Expect it to take about 90 minutes from start to finish, and note that there is no expert assembly option offered here.

Mostly, it comes down to what kind of entertaining you plan on doing. If you want a good, inexpensive set of outdoor furniture for occasional dining, this set is a no-brainer. It’s an excellent investment that will serve you well, although note that the cream-colored seat pads will require significant, ongoing effort to keep clean.

If you plan to do lots of all-day outdoor entertaining and you’re looking for furniture that your guests can lounge on for hours at a time, this isn’t the set for you. On that basis, we provisionally recommend it.

Highwood 5-Piece Hamilton Outdoor Dining Set

Highwood 5 Piece Hamilton Round Dining Set
4.2

Recommended For: Anyone weighing up to 500 pounds who’s looking for a quality, durable dining set, rather than individual pieces of furniture.

Check Latest Price Read Detailed Review

Highwood rounds out our list of the best patio furniture sets for heavy weight. If you’ve read some of our other outdoor furniture roundup reviews, you’re already familiar with the Highwood brand. They’re still not what we’d describe as an industry Titan, but they are larger and better-known than the other brands we’ve talked about thus far.

The furniture Highwood makes and sells tends to be more expensive than average, but they do offer products of exceptional quality, and they back that up by offering an impressive 12-year warranty on the products they sell, this set included.

Like the Tangkula set we just talked about, this furniture set is a bit more narrowly targeted than our top picks as it’s dining furniture. If you plan on having a lot of picnics on your porch, deck, or patio and are looking for something a bit different from the standard picnic table, then this is an excellent option to consider.

Luxor Color, Highwood 5 Piece Hamilton Outdoor Dining Set, Front View

Let’s start by doing a quick stats review and looking at each piece by the numbers:

  • Overall Product Dimensions: 91” L x (40.5” – dining height) or (46.5” – counter height) H x 91” D
  • Seat Height: 18.28” (front) and 12.28” (back) – Dining Height or 24.25” (front) and 21.75” (back) – Counter Height
  • Seat Depth: 18.25”
  • Seat Width: 20”
  • Table Height: 30” or 36” depending on which variant you purchase
  • Table Diameter: 48”
  • Total Weight: 227 pounds
  • Maximum Supported Weight (Chairs): 500 pounds each

These are very good numbers, and note that the chairs offered here have a higher supported weight limit than any other chair in this review. Sure, the loveseats and sofas support more, but no other chair in this review can match the ones offered here.

We also love that you can order your set in your choice of height. If you select the higher table, the chairs you get with it are also correspondingly higher.

Moving beyond what the numbers alone can tell us, note that the chairs offered with this set are Adirondack style. That’s significant because most Adirondack chairs sit very low to the ground, which makes them unsuitable for many potential buyers, especially those who suffer from mobility issues. Since they sit so low, they can be notoriously difficult to get into and out of.

These chairs are the exception to that rule. They give you the best of both worlds. Adirondack styling, but high enough that everybody can use and enjoy them. We love that!

Luxor Color, Highwood 5 Piece Hamilton Outdoor Dining Set, Dining Table

The only real potential problem with the numbers above is the fact that the seat width is a bit on the modest side. If you weigh anywhere close to the chair’s 500-pound weight limit, you’ll want to take a quick measurement to be sure you’ll be able to fit comfortably into one of these.

It’s also worth mentioning that this set is proudly made in the USA. Unlike every other set we’ve talked about to this point, it doesn’t make any use of rattan at all. In fact, this furniture is made of an eco-friendly composite material that stands up exceptionally well to the elements without fading or chipping.

Even better, the expansive 48” diameter table has an umbrella hole in the center. While the set doesn’t come with an umbrella, it’s easy enough to add one if you like.

In addition to that, you can order yours in more than a dozen different colors, which makes it easy to blend this set with your existing home décor scheme or to build a variety of décor schemes around the color of your choice.

Aside from the seat width, which will only be problematic for a small segment of the potential market for this furniture, the only major drawbacks to this set are that it’s on the expensive side and since it’s so big, heavy, and durable, the assembly process can be a bit daunting.

Fortunately, this set does come with an expert assembly option. If you’d rather not have to wrestle with the assembly process, it’s easy enough to pay someone else to do it, and it doesn’t add much to the total price of the set. This is a great set of furniture, and we recommend it.

Check Latest Price Read Detailed Review

The furniture sets that occupy the bottom half of the chart are offered by smaller brands than the products we’ve talked about thus far, and the furniture is a bit lower quality than our top picks. That doesn’t mean, though, that they’re not worth your consideration, especially if money is tight.

Ovios dominates the bottom half in the same way that RST dominates the top half, and their six-piece rattan furniture set is a very good value for the money. You get a lot of furniture for a song, so if you’re looking for an inexpensive way to jumpstart your outdoor furniture collection, this is a great way to do it.

This set includes the following pieces:

  • Two chairs
  • Two Ottomans
  • A three-seat sofa
  • And a coffee table
Specification Stats, Ovios 6 Piece Rattan Patio Set, Blue Color

In short, everything you need to entertain a few guests on your deck, porch, or patio. Continuing on with the convention we established in the top half of this review, let’s take a closer look at the numbers that define each piece:

  • Overall Product Dimensions: 126.16” W x 72.98” D x 34.64” H
  • Sofa Dimensions: 75.99” W x 34.45” D x 34.64” H
  • Chair Dimensions: 31.89” W x 33.27” D x 34.64” H
  • Ottoman Dimensions: 26.77” W x 18.11” D x 16.73” H
  • Coffee Table Dimensions: 40.55” W x 22.83” W x 20.08” H
  • Seat Height: 18”
  • Seat Depth: 30”
  • Seat Width: 26”
  • Maximum Supported Weight: 400 pounds (chairs), 750 pounds (sofa)
  • Total Weight (all pieces): 181 pounds

These are categorically good numbers that all work very well in tandem and paint a picture of a furniture set that’s custom-made for bigger, taller, and heavier people.

The coffee table is an especially good addition here. Not only is the tabletop Polywood, which is an incredibly durable composite material that looks great and will undoubtedly outlast the rest of the furniture, but the table also comes with a handy storage shelf beneath this, which adds considerably to its versatility.

Hand-weaved PE Rattan, Ovios 6 Piece Rattan Patio Set, Blue Color

Unlike our top picks, which use tubed aluminum, this set boasts a galvanized steel base wrapped in rattan. Unfortunately, Ovios doesn’t offer any color options where this set is concerned. The rattan is stained with an attractive grey color that closely resembles the color used on the sets offered by RST, and the padding is a medium blue polyester filament-based fabric that is weather-resistant and quick drying.

If you like blue, you’re in luck. This set belongs to your shortlist of options to consider, as it’s only a fraction of the cost of the set offered by RST and offers nearly as much furniture as our top pick.

Comfort-wise, Ovios uses block foam padding, just like our higher-ranked options. The seat and seatback pads are nearly, but not quite four inches thick, so it provides a comfortable seating experience even if you spend several hours at a stretch lounging in the chair.

Unfortunately, the quality of every component on this furniture is somewhat lower than what you’ll find on our top picks. It’s not a glaring difference, but over time, it will be telling. This furniture looks great. If you use it as occasional seating and keep up with the maintenance, it will serve you well. But, it will start showing its age much more quickly than the more expensive furniture will.

That’s a pretty standard trade-off. You get about the same amount of furniture, but the padding will start breaking down more quickly, and the finish on the rattan will start peeling and cracking after a couple of years exposure to the elements.

Blue Color, Ovios 6 Piece Rattan Patio Set, Front View

Ovios does make an effort to help you protect your investment, though, offering a free furniture cover that’s big enough to cover the entire set when it’s not in use. They also offer a pair of throw pillows to add a splash of color and flair to the sofa, but the pillows aren’t particularly well-padded. They’ll work in a pinch, but you’ll probably be happier with accent pillows you select yourself.

The real gotcha and the biggest difference between this set and the more expensive ones are revealed in the packing and assembly process. Unlike the more expensive sets, if you buy one of these, it will arrive at your door in two giant boxes.

Six pieces of furniture, two boxes. If there’s a silver lining, it is that the pieces that make up each component are wrapped individually. As long as you don’t unwrap everything all at once, you’ll be able to keep everything organized and not get your pieces mixed up.

Cushions and Pillows, Ovios 6 Piece Rattan Patio Set, Blue Color

While that won’t get you unless you take everything out all at once, the production quality will trip you up in places. It’s good, and certainly a cut above what you typically see in furniture imported from China, but it’s not world-class, so you’ll inevitably run into a few situations where the pieces don’t fit together quite as they should.

In addition to that, the assembly instructions are decent but sometimes a bit cryptic, which further complicates the issue.

Put all that together, and you’re faced with a pretty daunting assembly process that will tie up a significant portion of your day. It’s not insurmountable, but it will be a challenge. The good news is that once it’s done, it’s done, and as long as you take the time to cover it when it’s not in use and doesn’t use it heavily, it will serve you pretty well.

We like this set very much, but we don’t quite love it. Even so, for the right user and as long as you’re mindful of its limitations, it offers a ton of value for the money and is a great, relatively inexpensive way to jumpstart your outdoor furniture collection, giving you all the furniture you need to start entertaining in the outdoor spaces on your property. We recommend it.

Ovios 4 Piece Rattan Patio Set

This set is the little brother to the Ovios six-piece rattan furniture set we just talked about. While it doesn’t pack quite as much value as the company’s larger set, it still has a lot to offer and includes a loveseat, a pair of matching chairs, and a coffee table. Let’s start by doing as we’ve done in the past, and taking a look at the numbers that define each piece:

  • Overall Product Dimensions: 123.61” W x 62.76” D x 33.66” H
  • Loveseat Dimensions: 47.44” W x 30.12” D x 33.66” H
  • Chair Dimensions: 26.38” W x 30.12” D x 33.66” H
  • Coffee Table Dimensions: 39.37” W x 23.62” D x 17.71” H
  • Chair Max Supported Weight: 400 pounds
  • Loveseat Max Supported Weight: 600 pounds
  • Seat Height: 18”
  • Seat Depth: 30”
  • Seat Width: 26”
  • Total Set Weight: 95 pounds
Brown Blue Color, Ovios 4 Piece Rattan Patio Set, Front View

As with the numbers that define Ovios’ larger set, these are categorically good numbers. Even if you’re near the top end of the chair’s maximum supported weight limit, you won’t have any problems whatsoever fitting comfortably into the chair.

The loveseat doesn’t support as much total weight as the sofa offered by Ovios’ six-piece set, but this is hardly a surprise. The coffee table offered here is identical to the excellent coffee table offered in the larger set.

The padding is identical too, but since this set doesn’t include matching Ottomans, we didn’t rate this set quite as high for comfort.

Foam Padding, Ovios 4 Piece Rattan Patio Set, Brown Blue Color

Of interest, while there are no color options available on the six-piece set, you do have two color options here. You can pick either grey rattan with blue cushions or brown rattan with beige cushions. Although the cushions on the brown and beige configuration are more of a challenge to keep clean, we do prefer that option. But here, the right answer is whichever works best for you!

Another similarity between this set and its big brother is the assembly process, which suffers from the same challenges that buyers of the larger set will face. Since there are two fewer pieces of furniture to contend with, the process won’t take you quite as long. Be warned, though, given the challenges you’re likely to face putting the set together, it will still tie up a big chunk of your afternoon.

While there are some differences in the furniture offered in this set, each piece here suffers from the same basic weaknesses we talked about when discussing the six-piece set. It’s good furniture, but it’s made from relatively lower-quality components that will start to show their age sooner than the more expensive options we’ve talked about thus far.

Right Front View, Ovios 4 Piece Rattan Patio Set, Brown Blue Color

Again, Ovios does take steps to help you protect your investment, offering a free furniture cover that’s big enough to cover the entire set. They give you two free throw pillows to liven up the loveseat.

Here’s the thing with this set, though: Since it’s just four pieces, it really isn’t quite big enough to be considered an all-in-one outdoor entertaining solution. It’s a good start, but you’ll probably want to add some additional pieces later on unless you plan on entertaining just a handful of guests. Even so, it’s better than average, and it’s well-priced. We provisionally recommend it.

Best Choice Products 4 Piece Patio Furniture Set

Best Choice Products 4-Piece Acacia Patio Furniture Set

Recommended For: Anyone weighing up to 500-pounds, who is looking for a corner patio set.

Check Latest Price Read Detailed Review

Most of the products we’ve talked about to this point are rattan. Highwood’s product offering was a marked departure, being made of eco-friendly composite material, and this offering by Best Products is yet another departure from what has become the norm in this roundup review. This set is made of hardwood. Acacia, to be specific, and it is absolutely gorgeous.

Best Products is a tiny brand that most people have never even heard of. They import their products from China for resale here. The good thing about that is the fact that Chinese labor costs are incredibly low, and the company passes the savings onto you.

On the other hand, the production quality of products from China is somewhat lower than you find in products made in the West, so there’s a definite trade-off at work here. For most people, though, and especially people on a budget, it’s seen as a good trade, giving you more furniture for the money spent.

Specification Stats, Best Choice Products 4 Piece Patio Furniture Set, Espresso Color

In the case of the four-piece set offered here, the production quality is a cut above what you typically see from imported furniture, which makes it well worth a look. The set includes two loveseats, a corner piece to tie them together, and a coffee table. We’ll do as we’ve been doing, and start by taking a closer look at each piece in the set, by the numbers:

  • L-Shaped Dimensions: 87” L x 87” W x 26.5” H
  • Corner Seat Dimensions: 30” L x 30” W x 26.5” H
  • Bench Dimensions: 57” L x 30” W x 26.5” H
  • Table Dimensions: 29.5” L x 29.5” W x 14.5” H
  • Seat Height: 14.5”
  • Seat Width: 30”
  • Bench Capacity: 551 pounds each
  • Table Capacity: 250 pounds
  • Total Weight of the Set: 167 pounds

Most of these numbers are good. We love the maximum supported weight limit and note that the L-Shaped sofa is made up of three of the four pieces, which gives it a total supported weight of 1650 pounds. This is a sturdy piece of furniture!

The only potential weak spot in the numbers is the seat height, which is quite low at just 14.5.” If you’re taller, this set may not be a good fit for you, especially if you suffer from some type of mobility issue.

L-Shaped Sofa, Best Choice Products 4 Piece Patio Furniture Set, Espresso Color

On the other hand, while getting into and out of the sofa can be a bit of a challenge, once you’re seated, you’ll find the sofa to be quite comfortable.

The acacia wood is stained a deep, rich brown, and the sofa sports plenty of block foam padding to provide comfort. As we’ve mentioned, block foam padding is pretty much the industry standard, so there’s certainly nothing wrong with it. Also, since each piece in the set was designed to support 550 pounds of user weight, there’s quite a lot of it, which makes this an excellent piece for lounging for extended periods.

The cushions are covered with a durable, weather-resistant polyester filament-based fabric that’s quick-drying and stands up well to the elements. The only potential issue is the fact that there are no color options here.

They’re cream-colored, and they look great, but remember, this furniture was designed for use on your porch, deck, or patio; the one thing you’ll find plenty of outside is dirt, which means that keeping those pretty cream-colored seat pads clean is going to be a constant battle.

Unfortunately, the seat pad covers aren’t machine washable either, which means that you’ll have to clean them by hand with a damp cloth and a mild detergent if you want to keep them looking like new. Also note that, unlike Ovios, Best Products doesn’t offer a furniture cover you can place over the set when it’s not in use. That’s certainly not the end of the world, but it is something to bear in mind.

Home Decoration, Best Choice Products 4 Piece Patio Furniture Set, Espresso Color

One thing we haven’t talked about to this point is the coffee table that’s included with the set. It’s attractive and functional, but of a very basic design. There’s no storage shelf under the tabletop, but it is solid acacia wood and big enough to be genuinely useful.

It probably won’t come as a great surprise that if you buy this set, it will arrive at your door unassembled, so you’ll have some work to do before you can start enjoying it.

The good news is that for a Chinese import, the product quality is surprisingly high. It’s not perfect, but you won’t run into many instances where things don’t fit together as they should, and the instructions are clear enough that it makes putting the set together a fairly straightforward process.

Home Decoration, Best Choice Products 4 Piece Patio Furniture Set, Espresso Color

The downside is that there are four pieces of furniture, and they arrive in three boxes, so you’ll have to spend a bit of time sorting the components to be sure you’re assembling them correctly. This will slow you down some but is certainly not an insurmountable issue.

Also note that this set is offered with an expert assembly option, so if you don’t want to be bothered with the process of putting it together yourself, you certainly don’t have to be. We’re on the fence about it. It’s reasonably priced and, for some people, could be a valuable addition.

On the other hand, the process really isn’t that daunting, so unless you’re just dead set against putting it together yourself, you may not find much value in it. From start to finish, counting the initial sorting process, it should take no more than two hours out of your day.

The only other thing to mention here is the fact that this set was designed as a corner piece. It’s absolutely possible to put it almost anywhere, but not everyone will be interested in the set, simply because of its shape. Given that, we can only provisionally recommend it. Nonetheless, this one is actually our second favorite set in the whole review. If you decide to buy one, we think you’ll love it.

PatioFestival 5 Piece Rocking Patio Set

Patio Festival 5 Piece Patio Conversation Set
3.7

Recommended For: Anyone who is looking for smallish furniture set for outdoor entertaining.

Check Latest Price Read Detailed Review

The next product on our list is offered by yet another tiny brand, but it has the distinction of being the only set in this roundup review that offers rocking chairs! We love rockers, which gives this set a special place in our hearts, even if it didn’t rank especially high. Also note that the frame is powder-coated steel, which stands up well to the elements.

You get five pieces in all, including a loveseat, two rockers, a small bistro table, and a sturdy coffee table. Here are the basic stats that define the various pieces:

  • Loveseat Dimensions: 47.8” W x 26.8” D x 32.3” H
  • Rocking Chair Dimensions: 25” W x 31.1” D x 32.3” H
  • Bistro Table Dimensions: 18.5” W x 18.5” D x 18.7” H
  • Coffee Table Dimensions: 42.1” L x 23” W x 18.7” H
  • Seat Heights: 17”
  • Seat Width: 22”
  • Seat Depth: 22”
  • Maximum Supported Weight: 400 pounds (chairs), 600 pounds (loveseat)
Blue Color, PatioFestival 5 Piece Rocking Patio Set, Right View

Overall, these are good numbers that paint the set as being well-suited to a wide range of potential users. The loveseat doesn’t support as much weight as we’d like and is not the best in class, but it’s not bad. The seat height isn’t quite in the big and tall range, which starts at 18,” but also, it doesn’t miss the mark by much.

The seat width on the rockers is good. But if you weigh close to the maximum supported weight limit, you’ll want to take a quick measurement to be sure you fit comfortably into them. It pays to double-check before spending the money.

One thing we really like is the fact that the loveseat is a bit shorter than others we’ve seen, which reduces the footprint of the set as a whole and makes it a good fit for people who don’t have a ton of space to work with.

Rocking To and Fro, PatioFestival 5 Piece Rocking Patio Set, Blue Color

The Bistro table is small but bigger than some we’ve seen and is certainly large enough to be functional. The coffee table is about average. It’s a simple, attractive design, but there’s no storage shelf under the tabletop, which limits its use. Even so, it’s a good addition to the set as a whole, and there’s enough here that you’ll be able to entertain up to three guests in style.

Comfort-wise, PatioFestival sticks to the basics, padding their furniture set with conventional block foam. It’s important to set expectations here, so you’re not disappointed by what you get if you buy this set.

There’s ample padding here (3.5” in thickness) to provide a reasonably comfortable seating experience for shorter periods. Unlike many of the other sets we’ve talked about to this point, however, this furniture is not designed for lounging. There’s just not enough padding present to spend all afternoon in this furniture.

The padding used here is also somewhat lower quality than you’ll find in the more expensive sets we’ve talked about in this roundup. After 1-2 years of moderate to heavy use, the block foam will start breaking down and sagging.

The padding is covered by weather-resistant, quick-drying material, which you can order in either light blue or khaki, which are colors that are easy to work with in terms of either creating an outdoor aesthetic if you don’t yet have any other patio furniture or build on an existing aesthetic if you do.

Note that assembly is required before you can put this furniture to use. The upshot here is that each piece is partially assembled, so all you really have to do is provide the finishing touches. The production quality isn’t world-class, though, so you may encounter a few instances where pieces don’t fit together quite as seamlessly as they should, which will make the process more of a struggle than it should be.

The assembly instructions are reasonably clear, but they are rather cryptic in places, and this will give you a few head-scratching moments. It’s nothing insurmountable, but combined with the lower production quality, it does add time to the assembly process.

Steel Frame, PatioFestival 5 Piece Rocking Patio Set, Blue Color

Also note that there is no expert assembly option offered here, so you’ll have to do the work yourself or enlist the aid of a trusty assistant to get the set ready for first use.

Overall, this is a good set of furniture that falls short of greatness. Its main selling points are that it’s delightfully low-priced and incorporates rocking chairs into the mix, which we absolutely love.

The one, big, glaring weakness in the set’s overall design is the fact that the loveseat isn’t as sturdy as the rest of the set. It’s decent, but if you have problems anywhere, the loveseat is likely to be at the center of it. Also, since the loveseat doesn’t rock, it’s not quite as comfortable as the chairs that accompany the set.

Then there’s the padding, which will start to break down sooner than you’d like.

All that to say, it’s not perfect. Despite these shortcomings, however, this set still delivers loads of value for the money. If you keep in mind that it’s designed for occasional use, it will serve you well. We provisionally recommend it.

Check Latest Price Read Detailed Review

We didn’t feel that this roundup review would be complete if we didn’t give a brief shout-out to the three-piece set offered by JF World, which is another tiny brand that imports its wares from China for resale here.

This is a modest, minimalist furniture set consisting of two chairs and a small bistro table. Here are the core stats of the pieces that make up the set:

  • Chair Dimensions: 19.7” W x 19.7” D x 27.6” H
  • Bistro Table Dimensions: 24” W x 24.4” D x 33.1” H
  • Seat Heights: 17”
  • Seat Width: 17”
  • Seat Depth: 17”
  • Total Weight: 39 pounds
  • Maximum Supported Weight: 400 pounds
Grey Color, 3 Piece Rattan Patio Furniture Set By JF World, Front View

These numbers are decent, but not exceptional, and the seat width is genuinely problematic. The seat height isn’t quite in the big and tall range, but it doesn’t miss the mark by much, and the width is quite modest. If you weigh anywhere close to the maximum weight limit of the chairs, you’ll definitely need to take a quick measurement to be sure you’ll fit comfortably in the seat.

The big thing here, and the main selling point of this set, is the fact that it has a delightfully small footprint. If you live in an apartment and have a small deck or patio, or if you’re cramped for space, this is a good option that will give you the bare minimum of furniture needed to enjoy what outdoor spaces you’ve got. We wouldn’t rate it as a big enough set to allow for outdoor entertaining, but it’s a decent start.

Aluminum Frame, 3 Piece Rattan Patio Furniture Set By JF World, Grey Color

As with many of the other furniture sets we’ve talked about to this point, this set boasts a powder-coated, tubed aluminum frame with rattan stretched over it. The rattan is greyish in color, and the seat pads are covered with a weather-resistant beige material. There are no color options available. This is strictly a case of what you see is what you get.

The beige seat covers are attractive, but problematic for the same reasons we’ve discussed elsewhere in this room. It’s going to be a continual battle to keep them looking like new.

Comfort-wise, the chairs feature a modest amount of conventional block foam padding, 2” thick. They’re fine for occasional use, but this isn’t the set you’re looking for if you want to spend several hours at a stretch lounging in your outdoor spaces.

The bistro table is small but stylish and functional, with a tempered glass tabletop. It’s big enough to hold a couple of drinks and perhaps a small snack tray, but more than that, and you’ll have to invest in a second table.

Naturally, if you decide to buy this set, it will arrive in a large box and in several pieces, so you’ll have some work to do before you can put your new furniture to use. There are a few things here that will, in combination, complicate the process of putting the set together.

Tea/Coffee Table, 3 Piece Rattan Patio Furniture Set By JF World, Grey Color

First, there’s the fact that the production quality is a cut above average for a Chinese import, but it’s certainly not world-class. As such, when you begin the assembly process, you’re bound to encounter a few instances where pieces don’t fit together as seamlessly as they should.

The instructions are decent, but a little on the cryptic side, which will leave you scratching your head at least a couple of times during the process. Then there’s the fact that the entire set will arrive in a single box, so all the pieces will be mixed together. It will take time to get everything sorted before you can even start putting the components together.

None of these are insurmountable issues, but they will make the process a bit of an annoyance, and note that there is no expert assembly option offered here, so you’ll have to put the furniture together yourself.

The biggest selling point this set has is that it’s super cheap. If money’s tight and you want some basic outdoor furniture, this is a decent option, so even if an expert assembly option was available, we wouldn’t recommend it. It would blunt the main selling point.

With all that being said, we can only give this one a provisional recommendation. It’s far from perfect, but it gets the job done, and for the right use, it may be a good fit.

Final Thoughts: Best High-Weight Capacity Patio Sets Roundup Review

So what is the best high weight capacity outdoor furniture set on the market today? In our view, the clear winner is the eight-piece set offered by RST furniture. It’s big, expansive, and well-designed, giving you everything you need to enjoy the outdoor spaces on your property.

We understand, though, that not everyone will agree. We’ve covered a lot of material here, so we’ll summarize and include some of the reasons you may find one of the other sets we’ve talked about here more to your liking:

  • The RST six-piece set is a good alternative choice to our top pick, offered at a substantial reduction in price. If you want the top set but can’t afford it, this is a decent substitute.
  • The Ohana seven-piece set is our personal favorite. It’s comfortable and visually striking. While still pricey, it won’t set you back as much as our top picks, and it’s round! What’s not to like about that?
  • The Tangkula five-piece dining set is, in our view, the best value in the entire review. If your outdoor entertaining is less focused on lounging and more focused on dining, this set would be perfect for you.
  • The Highwood set is a larger and more expansive dining set than Tangkula’s offering. It’s an American-made product, crafted from eco-friendly composite materials. The chairs are Adirondack style, but the chairs sit high enough that they get around the main weakness of that style of chair. There are lots of potential reasons this might wind up being your top pick.
  • While not of the same quality as our top pick, the Ovios six-piece set is a great choice, offering a lot of furniture for a delightfully modest price.
  • The Ovios four-piece set is a good alternative choice if you like what Ovios brings to the table but don’t need quite as much furniture as the larger set offers.
  • The four-piece corner set offered by Best Products has the distinction of being the only set constructed with hardwood and is our second favorite set in this collection. It looks great, is delightfully comfortable, and would be a great addition to the outdoor spaces surrounding just about any home.
  • The five-piece set offered by PatioFestival is the only set in our roundup review that incorporates outdoor rocking chairs into its design. The production quality is somewhat lower than the rest of the products featured in this review. Still, it’s fine for occasional use, and the fact that it gives you a pair of outdoor rockers is superb.
  • Finally, the tiny set offered by JF World is a decent choice for those who are looking for outdoor furniture with a minimalist aesthetic, or those who have very limited space and a limited budget. It’s the lowest-priced set in our review, which may move it to the head of the line for some.

At the end of the day, there are no ‘right’ answers here. It comes down to your personal preference and how you intend to use whatever furniture you ultimately decide to buy. The real question, then, is what the best high weight capacity outdoor furniture is for you?

We can’t answer that question, but one thing we feel certain of is this: Somewhere in this roundup review, you’ll find the outdoor furniture you’re looking for.
