Inexpensive Version of CB2 Outdoor Furniture

Desire/Aquire: CB2 Outdoor Sectional

Outdoor sectionals are a swanky way to spruce up your living space beyond the walls of your pad. I'd love to spend the lazy days of Summer on the wicker Resort Outdoor Sectional Pieces from CB2. They're modular, UV-resistant, super sturdy, and no-assembly-required means relaxation begins soon as the set arrives. Creating an outdoor living room does not come cheap, though — a four-piece set plus cushions costs nearly $1,400. If, like me, you don't spend as much time in your backyard as you'd like (to justify the cost) then check out my less expensive alternative. To see it, and how much it'll save ya, just


Ah, Ikea. How I love thee. The Ikea Arholma Series looks a lot like the more expensive version, but will only cost you around $610 for the same amount of furniture (two corner chairs, one armless chair, ottoman, four pads, and three cushions). Sure, you'll have to build it yourself, and it's plastic rattan rather than wicker, but creating your own sectional is less than half the price of CB2's set. Turned off by plastic? Let's not forget that it's nearly maintenance free all year long, whereas wicker requires a little more TLC and usually needs to be stored off season. Plus, if it rains for three weeks straight in July, we won't be so worried about our furniture, or our wallets.

The CB2 stuff is resin wicker anyway- not real wicker, so isn't that essentially plastic? The same as the Ikea? I think it's silly to pay top dollar for plastic outdoor furniture.
