I don't normally leave reviews but I felt I need to write one to warn people about Overstock and their seasonal items. This is my second summer to order things from O for the outdoor season. Last year was an outdoor sectional and this year was this hammock. In both cases, they were shipped to me used, broken and missing parts. This happened last year and I thought it was an unfortunate accident (it took overstock over 2 months to get it right). This year it's this hammock. When the hammock package came in it was frayed but and I was cautious. Sure enough when I opened the hammock box, it had been packaged poorly: stylophone torn, no instructions and missing parts. And to boot, it had a key part broken, the stand. I'm getting a new hammock sent to me. So we'll see if it's really new. But I want others to know that when it comes to the seasonal summer items, Overstock cannot get it right. The only good thing about both experiences is the great call center. The people there should be commended since they have to clean up everyone else mess. To be continued!
The hammock is gorgeous but it didn't come with all the parts and rather than just send me the small parts that were missing they wanted me to return the entire 70 pound box and then receive another one. Not acceptable. Found the parts somewhere else
I compared quality and prices for this double cotton hammock with stand several places. The closest overall comparison was Bed Bath and Beyond. The similar item there, with 20% off coupon, would have been $100 more for virtually the same quality, size and style. Furthermore, this product was free shipping, delivered in 3 days and is durable and attractive.
