SunHaven – many exciting things make us wonder: do they work? In our I Tried It series, we decided to use them in the real world and determined that they do.

The last thing you’ll see me doing in my free time is putting together furniture. A box full of IKEA parts is what I define as my circle of hell. Go for an assembled option or leave the instructions and execution to my husband. So when SunHaven offered to sample their – music to my ears! – fully assembled outdoor furniture, I jumped at the chance.
The Los Angeles, California-based company has perfected the art of making your outdoor space as comfortable as your interior. Between outdoor furniture, dining sets, bar sets, and accessories, you can expect your backyard to be a favourite party spot during the warmer months. I will focus on furniture for this article as I installed the Kensington on my patio over the past year.
The base of the pieces is complete with high-quality rust-resistant powder-coated steel or aluminium frames and double-width resin wicker. Also the cushions are finish from a 5-inch thick ultra-plush olefin, a polypropylene fibre. And the fun part is choosing the outfit and colour you want. For me, I opted for the Kensington Gray 9-Piece Wicker Set. It has a four-seater sectional sofa, two club chairs, two armless sofas, and a coffee table. Also the colour can work with just about any colour, so I’m sure it will be a staple for years to come.
One of the things I love about SunHaven is that their website makes it easy to shop for what you need. You can select by collection, size (how many people), type or colour of the cushion. When choosing the decor I wanted, I kept in mind the size of my patio, the number of people I usually entertain, and the ambience I wanted to create in my backyard oasis. There are four neutral cushion colour options, including charcoal, grey, navy and ivory, making it easy to replace if you decide to do so in a few years.
Each seat has a capacity of 325 pounds, and my guests and I can vouch that these pieces are incredibly sturdy and comfortable. And also they are pleased that the sofa its become my husband’s new favourite place to nap.
Generally, furniture tends to be expensive, but your money matters a lot with SunHaven. A set of three club chairs and a table runs around $1,400. And the price varies depending on the individual pieces or groups you choose. Remember there is no (!) assembly (!) require (!), so it’s just a matter of placing the lightweight pieces. Where you want them, adding the cushions, and calling it a day.
