I really like the swing however I ran into 2 problems as I was assembly the pieces. The paint on the stand keep falling off and that tell me that this color won't last long. Another problem I had was the part for screw. The hole didn't match with the stand. I have to have get someone to make the hole bigger in order to be able to screw the stand together. Otherwise, the swing a nice statement piece for my deck.
Purchased the outdoor swing chair for our outdoor patio next to our garage area. It came with the large stand (which we didn't need) because we hung the chair right from the rafters and it looks great. Assembled the stand before hand but it does teeter back and forth and can tip when the kids really start having fun in it. The chair itself took us about 25 minutes to put together, wasn't bad at all, and easy to assemble. Kids and I love the swing chair, easy to get into and large enough to sit and relax, wish it was just a tad deeper so you can sit inside of the whole thing, but it will certainly do - the kids fight to see who will sit inside daily.
This swing is beautiful, comes together easily (you will need someone to help you bolt the four pieces of the chair together at the very least), and is complete with cushions - a nice added bonus. The cushions are lightweight, but very comfortable. I'd recommend purchasing some sheet straps - the kind with the metal "claws" on the ends - to secure the cushions to the frame because they will not stay on otherwise. This chair has tipped over on us a few times. At first, we thought it was because we'd briefly moved it onto a flat area of our back lawn to allow for a few more seats to be set out along the patio. However, after moving it back onto the patio itself, it's tipped over a few more times - twice with men under 250lbs, and twice with a 53-pound child on it. It seems stable enough if one is simply sitting, but if rocking a bit or swinging a little, it's not reliably sturdy. Also, although the metal frame is wrapped with plastic stripping that resembles wicker, it's not completely wrapped - the edges that have to be bolted together are exposed, and they can scratch the support pole, skin or anything you may set the chair next to. It is definitely beautiful, but now that I'm concerned as to its safe use, I wish I had purchased something different.
Upon receiving my Tear Drop Swinging Chair, I couldn't wait to assemble and get it out on patio. It's the statement peice amongst all the peices of furniture I have displayed in my backyard. Everyone wants to sit in it. I would be wrong not to mention that it's not accommodating for all body types but it is an extremely comfortable peice.
We purchased this for our 13 year old daughter who had seen one like this at Pier One and wanted it. It was fairly easy to assemble and she has it in her bedroom and sits in it reading daily. It is attractive nad she really enjoys it. Am thinking of getting a few more to place on our screen porch.
We bought one of these last summer, but too late to put it outside. We set it up in the house and our 2 pre-teen daughters have loved it so much, we bought another one. They are sturdy and comfortable - and look fun and chic! Both girls (combined weight ~ 160 lbs) sit in it together. We wanted a second one so their friends would have a place to sit - and they wouldn't all fight for a seat in the swinging chair. I am very pleased with this purchase and would highly recommend it.
I got this chair for my daughter for her birthday. It was difficult to put together but well worth the struggle. The chair looks very cool and is super comfortable. She is using it as a reading chair and couldn't be happier. The price is right considering it comes with the chair, the cushions, the spring, and the stand. I would definitely recommend!
