I was looking for something for my front porch, so I needed it to be both attractive and comfortable. This was one of the few I found online that I thought could work in my space AND my budget. I received it in the expected amount of time, although I have to say that what arrived in the mail surprised me. Both ends of the box were torn off -- which I originally assumed was damage during transit and just counted myself lucky that all the pieces were intact -- but then I realized that this chair had clearly been owned/handled before. It was in good shape, but everything that required tying or attaching during assembly (according to the instructions) was already done. I was a bit disappointed at that realization but plowed ahead -- and I'm glad I did! As I was assembling it, I couldn't believe it would actually hold someone's weight. It's a genius design though and although there are no permanent connections between the poles and the ropes, it's very sturdy. I weigh 185 lbs and feel completely supported in it. The arm and foot rests are a really nice touch and go a long way to make this feel like a piece of real furniture. It's extremely comfortable and pretty attractive in an outdoorsy way. Plus, it's easy to move in the event of bad weather. I would definitely recommend it.

I purchased this swing to put it on the covered patio of my first home which I am about to close on. After this item was promptly shipped I painted it white to match the trim of my new future home. I am very pleased with the sturdiness, quality, and price of this product. The only problem I had was the bolts and holes did not quite line up perfectly when I went to assemble it. I managed to get it aligned and tightly connected after some drilling, banging, and dragging out my tool box. I am pleased with this product and look forward to hanging it on my porch and swinging real soon!

Fun stand for hammock chairs. Tricky to get the chair's rope just right such that it faces outward from supports bow. Easy to assemble, yet does require level surface, my deck pitched to allow drainage...yet causes support to rock a bit. Not sure how it would do on just basic dirt. Good product though.

We ordered the brown swing and it was exactly how it looked on the website. We also purchased a cushion and are very pleased with both of them. No assembly required. We've had it for about 5-6 months now and it is very durable, comfortable and stylish.

I am impressed with the quality of both the hammock and the stand. It's a good thing I like it so much because I'm sure it will be around for years to come. I was pleasantly surprised at how easy the duo is to put together. The stand has three bars that slide into the "feet' of the stand held there by internal metal pins. No tools required. The hammock or course did not need assembly either. The stand comes with metal hooks and chain to hang the hammock from. Just FYI.

Arrived quickly and well packaged. A classic, romantic porch swing! Looks and feels more high end I expected.

Very good hanging chair and great for the price. It didn't require a lot of assembling at all, just the dowels which go right in. Get an I bolt or something to hang it from and your good to go. I have one outside in my Oak tree and one hanging in the garage.

The hammock is lovely and I am very sad to have to return it. However it is way too long for our 13.5' hammock stand. When hung up (without the ropes), it curved all the way to the bottom and then if sat in, the person was touching the base of the stand. I assumed that it was adjustable up to the 13' measurement with the ropes - not that the hammock itself was that length without the ropes. If you have a regular sized hammock stand this will not work for you. So sad, it was lovely and very comfortable (apart from touching the floor!)

For the price, this is a great hammock. However, it came with no directions at all, and more that half of the parts were missing. We had to go to Lowes to buy new eyehooks and nuts, as well as a grappling hook, then figure out how to do it all. There was a hole in the box, so I think some of the parts fell out in shipping? It is a comfortable hammock. Fits 2 people well. We love it, and for the price it is great. Even with all of that hassle with missing parts and going to Lowes, it's still worth it for the price.

love this classic piece it is heavy and durable and has great hooks that I just swung over a rail on my pergola.

Swing is nice looking and sturdy. It did require a large amount of force to get bolt holes to line up. Not the easiest to assemble, but once assembled it is great. I receive many compliments.

My swing arrived without difficulty. Primary problem was that there were parts missing and the company did not respond to my inquiry. The directions did not indicate the size of the screws that were missing and they were specialty screws so I had to search for them, then guess at the size. Assembly requires 2 people, but wasn't too difficult. I love the swing, but really dislike the lack of response from the manufacturer. I'd probably rate it at 4 1/2 or 5 if the company would have at least responded to my email. I'd think twice about purchasing this company's products in the future.

I really like this hammock. It is very natural and blends well with our backyard. It is raw cotton and you can smell that it is a natural product. I recommend it. We plan to wash it by hand and to never leave it outside to prevent it from water and sun damage.

The swing is a great value and seems very sturdy. However, it requires two people to put together. The screws do NOT line up and so it take quite a bit of time to assemble. We almost sent it back after trying for an hour to put it together then we finally got it. The provided allen wrench and screw became stripped which added to the frustration.

The quality of the swing was as expected - well built, nicely finished, quality construction. As with most imported products, the assembly instructions were a brief one page "follow the pictures" which proved adequate for the level of assembly required. Unfortunately, the hardware package which included a handful of bolts, nuts, and washers, was missing all four "A" connecting bolts which are needed to attach the bench seat to the frame. With some persistence, I was able to find a suitable substitute at a local hardware store. This resulted in taking longer to assemble the swing, but did not prevent us from enjoying it once assembly was completed.

This product requires absolutely FLAT surface or anchoring to be 100% stable. Once the proper hardware was received, it was a breeze to assemble. We're enjoying it quite a bit.

I had a hammock stand for a number of years but it rusted after sitting on my lawn season after season. I bought a replacement at a local store and found out that all hammock stands are not created equal. when I attached my hammock, it bowed to the ground because the span of the posts was too small..... I went on line to find a longer one and BOY! Did I find it. This is very long but it's what I asked for. While the box didn't handle shipping all that well, the product was perfect. This is easy to assemble... no tools required. I was lounging in no time. I recommend this, but make sure you're OK with the length (especially the span at the top of the poles) fitting into the space you have.

I am thrilled with the weight of the stand and when they say heavy duty it's true. Just know that in its design, the pyramid shape means the cross bars on hammock chairs will hit agains the upper part of the pyramid so you can't swing in the classic sense. But as you sit suspended it feels good and solid and there is enough room for some gentle twist and sway. If you want true twist and swing you will have to hang your hammock chair to a higher hook. I suppose the best part is the fact that you can pick it up and move it. Another nice feature is the independent adjustability of each leg's length, so if you were on a slope you could shorten a leg to stay level. Adjustments are not infinite, however. It is heavy duty construction not precision that gives this stand its five stars. It fits in a strap-handled carry bag…kind of heavy, but compact.

This is a really fine hammock. It is wide and comfortable in every way. It is exactly what my wife and I wanted, and it has brought us a lot of pleasure.

I had tried a universal hammock stand but that just does not work with a classic rope style hammock that fits two persons. This stand works perfectly. It also has a very nice large base so I don't worry about it falling over.

The shipping box for the C-stand is completely inadequate. It arrived with parts protruding outside the box on 2 different spot. This cause the paint to be scraped off of the stand in a couple of spots. It was too heavy and cumbersome to deal with returning, so we assembled it anyway. The top portion of the stand did not fit properly into the bottom section and the screw holes would not line up until resorting to a hammer to force the top far enough down into the bottom portion to allow the supplied screws to be installed. The chair is confusing to assemble. I did not expect to be required to assemble the chair itself. The wood on the chair arms is very rough and not at all smooth like furniture should be. It requires sanding and then you would need to re-stain it for it to look right. Once it is assembled, the back of the chair tends to hit the C-stand a lot. If you have a place that you can hang the chair without a stand, it would be FAR better. The C-stand is okay but it does not compare to one that is hanging from a support beam. With all that being said, the chair is comfy and suits our purposes fairly well. It seems to be safe.
