I purchased 2 of these chairs to go with the C-Stand. They work great and were easy to put together. I use it every day and am quite pleased. I also like the look of the aluminum dowels vs the wood, but that is my preference.

This product arrived without some of the hardware required to put it together. Also, many of the wood pieces did not fit properly. It takes forever to put together due to the poor quality. It's a bit expensive to be of such cheap quality which was disappointing. I don't think it will last although it is fairly comfortable once I put it together with pieces from the hardware store. It arrived banged up as well, although the shipping company is likely to blame for that.

This product arrived quickly, as I would expect from Overstock. However, the pre-drilled holes do not match up. Also, the wood is clearly a very "cheap" wood and splinters easily. I would like to return this, but the return shipping is $62, so what to do? I'm very disappointed and will not order from Overstock again.

This is a very comfortable swing chair. The foot rest is especially nice to have. It is a bit of a challenge to initally put together, but the directions are good. If you will be putting it up and taking it down often, you may not want to deal with it, as the wood dowels come out. I may screw mine in-that should solve the problem. You will need to make other adjustments by moving the nylon roping, but once adjusted to where it is comfortable for you, you won't need to adjust it again.

I was pleasantly surprised to receive my swing so quickly...under a week. The wood is finished nicely & is very heavy. The hardware baggie had come open, so the screws, etc. were loose in the box & caused slight scratching on one piece. Once assembled though, no one would notice. Two of the washers were too small, so needed to run to Home Depot for correct size. One piece across the front was slightly warped & made it difficult to assemble part of it, but once again, it is not noticeable once assembled. I would purchase it again & do recommend it.

These swings are dangerous. We bought 2 based on the description and most of the reviews. Run. You can kill yourself in these. Very cheaply made and a horrible design. Spring for something a little nicer, you'll be glad you did.

This is the second time we purchased this swing. Because both are outdoors year-round, metal is preferable to wood. These swings are easy to assemble and look great. A great value for the money.

I love my chair and spend entirely too much time enjoying it. I would definitely recommend the item. The buying experience was a pleasant one and the quality of the chair is very good.

When I received the pkg, I found the box got bent. Without surprise, I found the wood bar got split. Called overstock, they setup a replacement pkg, and received the second one within 4 days. The hammock looks great in our backyard. The rope is soft and seems durable too. We do not have any issue with the wood bar (the replacement one, obviously) like one buyer had. So far, we have been using it for 5 months now and it is still looking great.

Before I had even received the chair I second guessed selecting the black color. We have ours in the shade so that little goof has not been something I find bothersome. I've had the chair for just under a year now and it is still in tact the wood is still strong and I'm sure it will last for several years.

This item screams quality - well built - fit & finish 9+ Easy to assemble BUT I reccommend using a good wood glue as you assemble

I bought this chair for my Mom (whom has limited physical capabilities) because it has a higher weight limit and looks very sturdy. It took about a half an hour to put all the wooden dowels in the right spots and to knot the foot rest to the chair. Each of the dowels fit in a very small orifice of material about 1 inch in length, the arm dowels fall out constantly if any weight or pressure is applied. The footrest doesn't fit the dowel it came with and the pillow snaps don't work so my pillow can not be used.

I'm glad that I checked the reviews of this product before I received it. As a previous review stated "DON'T BOTHER!!" the stitching that makes the stripes down the hammock are incomplete. This meaning that in some places the actual strand of string is not even sewn into the hammock... It just lays on top with a stitch anywhere from 2-6 inches away in between. Also, the ends of the strings that tie to the wooden bar seem to only be bound loosely with tape. I expected these rope ends to be secured by being tied in a knot or glued together so they wouldn't unravel. This product will NOT last long outside with these problems. BUYER BEWARE!!!!

This was one of the worst things I've ever ordered. From the moment we got it, it fell apart and was a complete hazard. My husband, who is incredibly handy, didn't know what to do with it or how to make it better. It just simply is poorly made and it a bad product.

Attractive and comfortable, but yoke is made of poor quality wood and snapped in half under the weight of my 90 lb daughter. I will make my own American hickory yoke. Hammock itself is fine.

The material is nylon and a bit of shinny gold color... but I opted for this vs the white cotten. It will be under trees and heavy folage in a mountainous setting. Everything gets trashed with the weather, trees, moisture, sun and sitting out under the trees. I live in a heavily wooded area.. and have gone through a few of these over the years. I have not fully opened it up yet, as it is still winter but spring summer and fall are right around the corner. Can't wat for my girl and I to chill under the stars on our warm summer nights.

It was not hard at all to figure out how to hang these up. My wife loves hers and so do I. The price was fair and we are happy customers.

I bought these swings for my daughter to replace a very outdated rope chair. I'm very please with the fabric, the wood is solid and smooth. The cost was actually less than I spent on the rope chair originally. It has been a good choice. I'm content to say the least.

I ordered two of these. Upon opening both boxes I found that the zippers on the included carry bag were broken. The pole for the footrest was also missing on one of the chairs (not that big a deal as you don't really need it). As in other reviews the "instructions" were useless but the chair was not that hard to figure out. Again like other reviews the finish on the wood bars was pretty thin and clearly would not stand up to any real usage. This was easily fixed by giving the posts a light sanding and re-sealing with a couple coats of high grade sealer. The nylon support ropes are a little disappointing however they look ok and work fine. You can adjust the chair back and forth however this is fairly difficult and cant be done while sitting in the chair. There is a "break" that is supposed to keep the adjustment in place however it really does not do anything as the lines wrap twice around the hinge point which basically locks it in place while you are in the chair. This to is not that big a deal as my wife and I just adjusted each chair to our individual preference. Bottom line on this chair is that the quality is average however the chair is very comfortable and it appears that we will be able to get a fair amount of use out of them.

The chair is great and easy to mount. An S shaped hanger is tied at the top of the ropes and you just hook that into whatever you are hanging it from. It's comfy and I love it.

This chair is a TERRIBLE knock-off of the well-made Air Chair. It's held together flimsily and a pain to put together, but the worst part is that when assembled, it hung crooked and leaned so far forward that I couldn't even sit back in it. There is no way to sit in it comfortably. I can barely sit in it at all. It seems the knots have been put in the wrong place and there's no way to adjust it. I've returned it.

Hammocks are the classic image of relaxation, but shopping for hammocks and swings can be far from relaxing, especially with the many different types available. Let this buying guide help you find the perfect additions to your outdoor furniture that will bring the luxurious relaxation you have always imagined.
Hammocks evoke images of summertime peace and lazy afternoons with a good book. There are many more styles of hammocks and swings now than in the past; you don't have to set up a hammock between two trees anymore if you don't want to. Many are instead used with hammock stands. Although some hammocks are built with safety in mind, there are still things you must pay attention to in order to keep a hammock safe. If used improperly, hammocks may pose a serious fall hazard or risk of strangulation.
Very few items of porch and patio furniture offer the peace and relaxation of hammocks and swings, and as far as outdoor furniture is concerned, it's hard to compete with a porch swing's decorative charm. Because porch swings need to support weight without compromising the stability of the porch, it's important to take the time to complete the installation safely. A little planning before and during the installation goes a long way in ensuring your new porch swing remains enjoyable for years to come.
