Who are Dave and Jenny Marrs?
Dave and Jenny Marrs used to be your everyday creative couple living in Arkansas. But now, they’re the stars of a wildly successful home renovation show.
The Marrs met after college and were friends for a while before they started dating. They eventually married and have now been husband and wife for 17 years. Dave and Jenny have five children together: Nathan, Ben, Sylvie, Charlotte, and Luke. They live in an old farmhouse in Bentonville, Arkansas.
Prior to fame, Dave worked as a builder, craftsman, and general contractor. Jenny was a designer. They did great work separately but outstanding work when they put their talents together. And then, HGTV came calling. The network wanted Dave and Jenny to star in a TV show called “Fixer to Fabulous,” which would focus on restoring and renovating historic homes in Northwest Arkansas. The Marrs got on board, and the rest is history.
Their show was an instant hit and became incredibly popular, making them household names seemingly overnight. “Fixer to Fabulous” is now in its fourth season on HGTV. Dave and Jenny have filmed more than 40 episodes and completed nearly 300 homes in Northwest Arkansas. In each project, their goal is to create a space where families feel at home. And because they can’t possibly renovate every house in America, they’ve developed an outdoor furniture and decor collection — available exclusively at Walmart — that gives every house in America the chance to look like it’s been on their show.
What's included in the Dave and Jenny Marrs collection?
This eye-catching outdoor furniture collection is an incredible collaboration between the Marrs, Better Homes and Gardens, and Walmart. It includes a porch swing, an outdoor dining table with matching chairs, weatherproof area rugs, decor, pendant lights, woven lanterns, throw pillows, planters, and more. All of the pieces are standouts, but the porch swing and outdoor dining table with matching chairs really set this collection apart.
What is the style of this collection?
All of the items in this collection are designed to create a beautiful outdoor living space but one that’s also functional for entertaining, relaxing, and having fun with family and friends. Because they have a big family of their own, the Marrs know the importance of having furniture that looks nice, but that also won’t get damaged easily.
The pieces in this collection range from small (throw pillows) to large (dining table), so you can pick and choose if you want something subtle or a huge change. In addition, all of the pieces are relatively neutral and fit well in both modern and traditional settings.
How Do We Rank and Review Outdoor Furniture?
We understand (because we are buyers of outdoor patio furniture, too) that shopping for outdoor furniture can be confusing. It is not always easy to find the best patio furniture because there are many different materials to understand, seating options to evaluate, brands and retailers to shop, and prices to compare.
So, that is why we developed an 8-criteria guide to rank patio furniture. In our view, these eight criteria provide a simple and consistent way to compare outdoor seating or table options. Read our ranking guide to understand better how we review furniture and for you to use as you compare outdoor furniture options.
Dave and Jenny Marrs' outdoor furniture review: Top six amazing features
When Dave and Jenny Marrs sat down to design this collection for Walmart, they started with the two largest items — the porch swing and the dining table with chairs. Here are the six stand-out features of each of those pieces.
The furniture is made of Grade-A teak frame material
Reason: Grade-A teak wood is one of the best all-around, weather-resistant outdoor frame materials available.
When Dave and Jenny began to design outdoor furniture, they knew it had to “help families create beautiful spaces they can live well in.” One outdoor material that can help that vision come to life is teak wood.
Teak is one of the most popular wood options for outdoor furniture — and for good reason. Not only is teak naturally beautiful, but it is also a very strong, extremely durable wood that’s also low maintenance and weather-resistant. This means that it’s exceptionally resistant to the damaging effects of water, sun, mildew, and fungus. So, not only does teak look great, but it will also stand the test of time.
The furniture is easy to assemble
Reason: There is some assembly for some items, but it shouldn’t require much effort. But this will depend upon your skill, especially when installing the porch swing.
Dave and Jenny Mars are huge fans of porch swings. They actually have three of them in their house, and porch swings have quickly become one of Dave’s favorite pieces to build.
However, when the Marrs launched this outdoor furniture line, they wanted to make sure that the porch swing was extremely easy to assemble so that people can easily install it at home. The same goes for the table and chairs. Very manageable assembly means very happy families.
Free shipping and quick delivery through Walmart
Reason: Walmart offers free shipping, and you may receive your item in less than a week.
This collection is available at all Walmart locations and also on Walmart.com. When you choose to shop online, you’ll get free shipping and super-fast delivery. Depending on where you live, this delivery time can be in less than a week and sometimes in just one day. Can’t argue with that!
Great extended warranty option value
Reason: Average 1-year warranty included, but the extended warranty options offered are a great value
When you buy the Dave and Jenny Marrs’ collection at Walmart stores or online at walmart.com, you’ll receive a standard one-year warranty. However, Walmart also offers additional warranty options for an amazing value (especially when you factor in the amazing price of this furniture – see point #6 below!)
If you’re the type of person who enjoys the comfort of extra coverage, opt-in for extended coverage. The total price will still be less than you’re likely to find elsewhere.
A generous trial period and return policy
Reason: An amazing free, 90-day trial period
Not totally convinced that this line of outdoor furniture will work for you? Try it out risk-free and find out. Walmart offers a free 90-day trial period. If you don’t like it within 90 days, return it for free and get your money back.
Many furniture lines only allow you to test it out for 10 to 14 days before you can return it, but Walmart is so confident you’ll love it that it’ll let you test it out for a full 90 days.
Incredibly priced outdoor furniture
Reason: It’s hard to find high-quality furniture like this priced at such affordable prices
For an outdoor furniture line that’s so well-made, durable, and beautiful, you’d probably expect to pay top dollar. However, with this Dave and Jenny Marrs’ line, you get spectacular quality at astonishingly low prices.
The teak wood outdoor dining table is currently going for $997. Similar teak dining tables are typically $2,500! A set of two dining chairs is only $399; you’d pay close to $1,000 for anything else of this quality. The porch swing with cushions goes for $897. This is virtually unheard of anywhere else.
The smaller items in this line sell for incredibly low prices as well. The planters start at $12 and go up to $49, the outdoor decorative pillows are only $30, the lights range from $20 to $97, and the outdoor area rugs are only $78 to $149.

Other notes about this furniture collection
- Initial customer reviews for this collection rave about the quality, comfort, and ease of assembly for these furniture items. So there is growing real-world experience that this is a great collection.
- We are unsure what the actual cushion material is for the porch swing cushion and dining chair cushions. But, the apparent thickness of these cushions and the initial reviews that note how comfortable these cushions are indicate that these cushions are likely not a low-quality material.
- We found the fabric used on both the porch swing and the dining chairs is labeled as weather-resistant. That means you can leave it outside throughout the year and not worry about it being exposed to the elements. In addition, all fabric covers on the cushions are removable, which makes them super-easy to clean. We are unsure what the exact fabric material is, but we did find that some items in this collection listed the fabric as polyester.
