I love these. Sometimes I forget my reading glasses, but I always have this magnifier with my credit cards. I like that it has a light that helps in reading in low light. I use it for more events than restaurants.
Pros: Appearance, Quality, Durability

I love the Balencia chaise,

I've been looking for a comfortable chaise for over 20 years. The Balencia Chaise is wonderful. It has a nice curve that fits the natural bend of my legs. The other chaise lounges were flat and I found them very uncomfortable. The back is easy to adjust. If it would adjust a bit more to a sitting position it would be perfect. To compensate to get a more of a sitting position, I use a pillow. I purchased a pillow for each chaise.
I've received many complements on how elegant and stylish they look.
I also bought the rectangular end tables. They are a perfect height and close enough of a weave to set drinks on without spilling.
The bronze shade of the all weather wicker is beautiful.
I also purchased the cushions and found them to be very comfortable. I love going out in the morning to read the paper and lounge. They are so comfortable that I have to be careful not to fall asleep.
At first I only purchased 2 covers for the 4 chaises. However, when it rains they get wet and take a while to dry. I bought another 2, so I would have 1 for each chair. Now the chaises are dry when we want to use them after a rain.
I also love the fact that they are stackable and easy to pick up, so storage will easy during the winter here in New England. We get some high winds and they have stayed in place.
This is the first season that I've owned the chairs. For durability, so far so good.
Pros: Quality, Appearance, Durability, comfortable
Cons: could have more upright position
 
More than a handsome timepiece, our Oxford Outdoor Clock with Thermometer displays the current temperature and humidity in a multidimensional fashion that's easy to read. Large, laser-cut Roman numerals announce the time, while the bi-metal coil thermometer and hygrometer measure the outside temperature and humidity. Quartz timing mechanism Hygrometer displays humidity levels Temperature can be adjusted to ensure accuracy Molded hanger on back of clock provides easy display Rich brushed copper finish over iron alloy frame; clear glass front Clock will not mold or mildew, but finish will fade over time when placed in direct sunlight Clean with mild soap and water; use glass cleaner for the lens Requires one AA battery (not included) View instructions manual (PDF format) Note: Freezing Temperatures can affect battery performance. The use of lithium batteries is recommended.

Beautiful but ....,

I purchased this clock for inside of our new pool house. The clock is really beautiful and the numbers are large enough to see from the pool. I used a picture hanging hook to hang it as it is fairly heavy and I didn't want it to fall down. It is inside the protection of the pool house, so there are no issues with the summer weather. I'm interested to see how it holds up to the New England winter weather.
The clock keeps accurate time. However the thermometer is off by about 20 degrees. I have another thermometer in the pool house which shows the temperature at 85 degrees about outside temperature. The thermometer on the clock is showing 65 degree. The hygrometer shows 90% humidity which isn't correct either.
I'm really disappointed that the thermometer and hygrometer don't work. I've had the Oxford clock for about 2 months. Too late to send back plus the weight and bulkiness of the box is difficult for me. I've purchased other items from Frontgate and have always been pleased with my purchase. I wish Frontgate would work with the manufacturer to improved the quality of the thermometer and hygrometer.
Pros: Appearance, Quality
Cons: thermometer doesn't work, hygometer doesn't work

Does the brown get hotter than the white
I don't have much shade. It seems that dark colors get hotter than light colors. Does the brown get hotter than the white ? Particularly the arms of the chair.

How is the time set?
I currently have an outdoor clock like this that I would like to replace. It has a feature that allows it to "self-set" the time via radio frequency. How is the time set on this clock?
The time is set manually. There is no automation or interface to set it

Display of Temperature
We love this Oxford Outdoor Clock, but the temperature does not display correctly. Is there a way to correct this feature?
There is s knob on the back that you can turn to set the temperature

How do you calibrate the temperature and humidity. There were no instructions in the package.
I have a thermometer with a humidity gauge. I used that to set the readings on the clock. If you don't own a gauge, maybe borrow one from a friend.

What is the battery life?
I bought the clock that is similar to this but has numbers. I cannot locate it anymore on the website nor can I find my old email confirmation that I ordered it. Anyway, how long should the batteries last? We've only had it for a few months, less than 5 months, and I've already replaced the batteries twice. I just changed them two weeks ago and today the clock was dead again.
My clock is in a pool house. I had to replace the batteries after 2 years. I think the length of time depends on the brand and type of battery

What is the weight capacity
My husband weighs 325 lbs and has used the chaise without any problem. The chair was very stable and had the strength to hold him. I don't know what the actual upper limit is. I can only vouch for the 325 lbs.
