I've searched for customer reviews for a Pier 1 outdoor papasan and cannot find any. I have a large balcony and would love to have one of these out there where I can curl up with a book and cup of coffee (once the temperature is less than a bazillion.)

While there are separate ones marked "indoor" and "outdoor" I don't see the difference. Will the cushion actually hold up to the elements? (very limited, light rain, no sun) Will it be easy to clean? Will the base deteriorate? I don't want to put out the money if it will be ruined after one season. I do not have the space to bring it inside, so it would be out all seasons. Winters here are mild, but do get below freezing.

Help?
