Thanks for the info. San Diego is definitely more arid than Central Texas. Our yard is pretty shaded, so the sun won't be a huge problem. The real issue is that the price is set at a point that makes it worth buying the set, but expensive enough to worry about making it last.

Another issue is that it's not just made of rattan, but it has a laminated particle board tabletop. Usually, this would nix the entire outdoor idea. BUT... the top is laminated on all sides; unlike most particle board tables, the bottom surface is not bare. So I'm thinking that will help protect it from warping.
