The modern design with hints of old world Victorian grace on this swing appealed to me - not the usual porch swing, or the fake wicker, or the traditional heavy wood needing maintenance type. It arrived quickly and I put it together easily in a few minutes. It is really heavy and appears strong. I bought springs and hangers from another source which enhance the "swing with a little bounce" - but they aren't necessary. The swing is very comfortable as is, right out of the box. The hard part for me was getting it installed into a beam strong enough to hold the weight of the iron swing plus two adults where there was none in my screened in patio. That required a very expensive handyman and a new beam. Now that it's complete, I made a cushion and lumbar pillows for your back's comfort, it is just as wonderful as I had imagined it would be. If you have a suitable place to hang this swing, give it a try. It is a most pleasurable experience. Since it's been up, about a week, every morning before I go to work, I treat myself to a relaxing swing to start the day.

I received my swing about a month ago, and absolutely love it. It is so beautiful that I hesitate to cover it with cushions. It looks just like the picture and was very easy to assemble. It is the perfect swing for two people. It will enhance any patio, porch, or garden. Keep in mind that it is a 48" swing and does not fit the traditional stands(60") very well. It does work, but is not completely centered.
Using a hammock may seem intimidating at first glance; it has to be hung, spread out, safely entered, and once you're in, you have to maintain your balance to avoid rolling right back out. While it might sound scary, using a hammock is actually fairly simple if you know what you're getting into before you get started. Safely Using a Hammock: Find a place to secure it: Trees are the traditional spot of suspension, but anything tall enough to keep you off the ground and hold your weight will work just as well.
