The swing arrived in surprisingly good time (3 days after ordering) and in very good condition (well packed ... no dings). It looks exactly like what was advertised. We bought the white color. The swing is sturdy and has what looks like a strong frame throughout. The underside too has five bars running that hopefully provides enough support to increase the life of the swing. There is too much resin though -- so it does feel more plastic and less wicker. But, that might be a problem with all wicker swings these days -- with the market's emphasis on easy cleaning and maintenance. Our patio has an 8 foot ceiling, so the chain that came with it was too long. It looks like the chain will fit a 10 foot ceiling. It was easy to move the links and "re-size" the chain to fit our needs.

I love my new porch swing. My only complaints and the only reason I didn't give this 5 stars are that 1) it was a bit difficult to put together - the pegs/holes didn't match up perfectly and I had to do a bit of manipulating/hammering to get everything in place properly. 2) It comes with thick rope to hang it, and it was not long enough. As I have an old house with high ceilings, I had to go out and spend another chunk of money buying swing chain at the hardware store. So my bargain was not as much of a bargain as I was counting on. But now that it is up, I am loving it. Looks great and swings like a dream.

I purchased this for my front porch. Its the first time I have bought anything from Overstock so I was alittle unsure. I was thrilled! The swing is beautiful, great quality and it arrived very quickly.

I order the swing and I didn't have the opportunity to put it together for a few weeks. I ike the swing however, since I was delayed assembling it closer to return policy - I would have sent it back. It was used and dirty and you it had been repackaged. The cost to ship it back wouldn't have been worth the trouble to send it back. Once it was assembled it looks nice and sturdy and I'm curious how it will hold up. Overall, I pleased with the product but wished I would have open the box upon arrival.

1) Arrived in approximately one week. 2) Considerably light weight for such a large item 3) Holds 400 lbs, as stated in the description 4) Does not look cheap 5) Withstands weather/storms very well 6) Item looks even better in person...I ordered the brown/multi colored swing (pecan, I think) 7) Chains are very sturdy 8) Easy to install 9) Perfect place to sit in the mornings or evenings...love this item.

This is the perfect hammock, I needed one large enough to fit both myself and my husband, as well as my two boys (ages 4 & 2) and this could fit all 4 of us!! I am 5'-8" and my husband is 6'-4". I have left it up sice we got it about 3 weeks ago, and it has held up in the rain and wind and dries very quickly. I would definately recommend this...stop thinking and just get it already!!!

This swing was even more that we imagined since we got such a good price on it. Very nicely made.

quality construction, easy to put together. does need a little adjustment for the rope to hang properly.

I only gave it 4 stars due to one of the sections on the seat not being welded properly and has popped up, but it's hidden under the seat cushion. This swing looks great hanging and is much more substantial than it appears in the picture. I also ordered the rocker that matched and they look great on one end of my front porch!

First, I want to say that this is a VERY COMFORTABLE hammock. It is also a very sturdy and well designed hammock. Two adults easily fit side-by-side. The reason I only gave it 4 stars is the fabric faded within two weeks of hanging under a pergola in North Carolina. What started out as a beautiful blue and white striped hammock quickly became a faded purple and white hammock. The color didn't bleed, just faded. I can understand the material fading after a summer, but not after only 2 weeks. The blue ropes are still a bright blue - but the material used for the hammock is a disappointment. NOTE to Manufacturer: I also purchased some ******** fabric chaise cushions to match the hammock and they are still a beautiful, bright blue.

My only complaint is that the screws used to hold the rope are about 1/2 inch too long.

I love this swing. I got the black, and was concerned it would be to stark. Not at all, there is a nice blend of color, including brown. Black is the prominent color, it is beautiful! My husband had no trouble hanging it. Very comfortable!

Woah is this thing tall when fully extended. I expected to barley be able to squeeze our chair into the opening but, was pleasantly surprised at how substantial the item is. There is really no assembly of the item itself however it has a safety rope that you clip into each of the legs, no biggie.

I ordered the white and it is WHITE (almost plastic-like in appearance) but my guess is that it won't be quite as pristine after a few seasons . . . so I'm okay with that. The swing is so, so comfortable, very sturdy, and delivery was, ahem, two days EARLY! As others have written, expect to cut a few links out of the chain - I have an old Victorian home, so I didn't expect to have this issue since I have high ceilings. But I did - it's a simple fix. It's better to have more chain than needed than less.

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.

Depending on your budget, this is a good buy. The ropes that it hangs from are too short so I ended up having to go to *** to buy chain to extend the length by a few feet and buy all the hardware to hang it. I looks nice and seems sturdy though.

We purchased a home with a white wicker swing only to find that the bottom was broken. This spring it was time to swap it out. I liked the look of the previous swing and wanted to replace it with something similar. This swing is comfortable and quiet and we are enjoying it very much.

Love the swing. Wood is beautiful and works well outside. Had no problem with rope hanger. In fact, looks great. This was a first rate purchase. I highly recommend.

This is a nice swing. It went together easily and is solid. The color matched the photo. It's been hanging for several weeks now in good and bad weather and doesn't seem at all affected by the weather. We did use the rope which came with the swing for hanging and it worked out well. Product arrived quickly and in perfect condition.
