We have had the swing for a few days and we love it. Some of the things you should know: Assembly: Make sure you don't tighten all the screws until the whole swing is assembled and ready to be used. If you tighten as you go during assembly, you will find that the pieces are not aligned and it is very difficult to screw them together. The swing is definitely Brown in color as the product description says. We were a bit anxious while ordering since all of our other patio furniture is made out of black metal, however, the swing does not look out of place. We absolutely love the look of it. Even though it was brown and the rest of our furniture black, we still bought this, since we simply could not find one that is simple and elegant -- which was what we were looking for. Overall, we are very happy with the quality and look of the swing.

I wish this product worked for my setting, but it's just too long to fit on my hanging apparatus. I had an existing metal frame that used to hold a birdcage chair and I was hoping that this hammock chair would fit in it's place. Unfortunately, the poles that maintain the chair's shape prevent me from raising it high enough to not drag on the ground when hooked onto the chair frame. Sadly, I'll be returning it but the quality is excellent and the details/finish work are superb.

ITs NOT...NOT...NOT...wicker. Its rubber and metal. Big difference. I really like these chairs...I bought two for the patio...and everybody that comes over likes them. The only gripe I have with them...is...well....they are not wicker. They are RUBBER.

At first, I saw a different hanging chair on special at O. I stumbled on this chair, in the side pane of my browser. I am thankful I did! The price was amazing for this chair. I'm very impressed with the quality of the hammock - there is a metal ring to support the hanging loop, the bar is real wood and the body of the chair is very sturdy. There is enough material that you can pull it out under your legs and behind your head and lounge. I've used this hammock several times already and have nearly fallen asleep every time! I took the advice of a previous review and have this hanging from a chain and carabiner from the support beam of the deck above me (I live in a condo). It's a perfect, non-permanent way to hang it and super easy to bring in in bad weather! Thanks for the suggestion! Overall, great product, great service and I can't recommend it enough!!

I bought two of these tripod stands one for me and one for my brother. We both love them and set them up all the time at our family parties. It is sturdy yet light and of good metal. Couldn't be happier!

This chair is my favorite piece of furniture that I own! A little bigger to me than it looks on the site, which was a bonus...even better, I can't believe how comfie it is! As a prior reviewer mentioned, it does come with two pillows instead of just the one pictured, and they are plush, quality items (not the kind that come with couches and lose their form after a few months). The all-weather plasticy wicker wrapped around the metal frame is also more sturdy than I expected, and adds a cute twist to the standard chair. It was so easy to put together, I actually didn't even open the instructions. The only problem I have with it is that it looks so nice in my three-season sunroom, I may need to get one more for the porch. You won't regret this purchase if you're looking for a cute, comfortable swing chair!

Love this - fits perfect next to our front door! Only issues we have are that the metal does not meet in the front, so looks a bit unpolished. Also, we will probably replace the cushions. They never stay in place and are not the greatest quality.

This swing was exactly what I was looking for. Could not find this type of swing in any stores such as Lowe's, Home Depot or other affordable outdoor furniture store. It sits 2 adults very comfortable and also 1 adult with 2 kids. So much better than wood swings that need to be painted and upkeep and not cold like the metal swings. I ordered it for our vacation home but hope there is still some left because I have to have one for my home.

I like the stand and it seems very sturdy! However I wish it was a little higher because my butt touches the bottom metal bar when sitting in my hammock chair. It may just be my style of chair. Still works great though! Glad I bought it.

I bought two of these chair swings to replace our old metal and fabric lawn swing that had rusted out and stained beyond repair, and that had to be moved every time we mowed the lawn. These two hang on the branches of a tree by a heavy chain with a clip like the ones rock-climbers use connecting to the big O-ring on the swing. Thus, when the weather looks bad, these chair swings easily come down and stay indoors. My granddaughter and I love to swing outside in the evenings, and these are perfect. I never thought we'd be able to afford something like this, but Overstock.com's price put them within our reach. Thank you! The wood is sturdy, and the cotton threads withstood several trials and errors as we worked out how to sit near each other without crashing into each other. I wish we had more trees. We'd put these all over the yard for guests.

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.

Fun swing design and easy to a assemble, took me about 15 minutes to have together and sitting in it. Placed it on an outdoor rug so as not to scratch the metal stand when I choose to move it.

I purchased this hammock to replace a sturdy old cotton rope hammock that had seen better days. Unpacking the hammock, I was very pleased. It was beautiful. The color was lovely, the weave so soft that I wouldn't know it wasn't a natural material. The wood was a great color and seemed well finished. We thought it looked great. Those are the good points. The only good points..... The bad? We found that the rope on this hammock was so thin that even when stretched as taut as was humanly possible to stretch this onto our large, durable metal hammock frame, this cheap hammock almost folded the user in half once you got into it. So we tried to make the hammock tighter. No go. Despite the completely stretched hammock now being literally parallel to the ground at 4' up, ( a ridiculous look by the way. A little higher up and I could have used it for a bad shade cloth) when I got into the hammock my rear end still almost touched the ground! I weigh 105lbs, so its not like I was putting a strain on the hammock. My friend then got into the hammock and his rump at 175lbs did hit the deck. Pretty hilarious. Less like a hammock and more like a Saturday Night Live sketch. Think Fred Flintstone. It would have been truly a laugh riot had I not paid for this. PS: the unfinished ends of the rope...and there were a lot of them....were only scotch taped. Scotch taped? Yeah. Not kidding. Scotch taped. Overall a very pretty, very cheaply made hammock. Yep....It goes back tomorrow. Maybe if you had two trees to string it across really high up it might be better..... Nah. Excellent hammock for punking your friends! Lousy hammock for lazing the weekends away. Glad that Overstock makes returns so easy!

By the time I got home from work, my son had put the swing together and all I had to do was shorten up the chains and start swinging. Better than even the previous reviews made it sound! Which is why I bought it in the first place. That and no solid metal swings could be found in the stores around here. They all had vinyl or fabric webbing for the seating area for very similar pricing. And no shipping cost? Come on! We are more than pleased with this purchase!

This is 2 person patio swing. It fits perfectly on our covered back porch! I recommend cushions for the seat and back because this is metal. I purchased mine and we LOVE it. I purchased all new wrought iron outside furniture and this was a perfect match! I highly recommend this swing. Just BEAUTIFUL.

This swing is sturdy and comfortable (for being metal). It was easy to assemble and just the right size for two people. It appears to be very durable but also attractive. I have it hanging from a tree and look forward to many pleasant evenings sitting in it in the backyard.

We love this swing. Easy assembly. Looks great on our deck. Hooks and chain all included. A great buy for an expensive-looking wrought iron swing. We would recommend anyone looking for a metal to buy.

When my swing first arrived, I loved it. It is very pretty and unique. I've had the swing for some time now, though, and it does not hold up to the weather at all. The color portion and the underlying base metal have separated and is peeling, leaving dangerously rough edges. It's hard to describe. It's not that the paint has peeled, it's as though there's an underlying metal and then another painted metal was bonded to that and they are rusting, separating, and peeling. I intend to try and strip the swing and see if it can somehow be painted with outdoor metal paint, but I'm not sure if it will work or not, and even if it does, it's going to be a lot of hard labor.

Love these chairs. Comfortable, easy to hang, and if I took them in for winter, they'd last so much longer. They lasted about 3 years, taking them in for winter would probably make them last 6-7. I like the metal frame, more durable than wood.

Super easy to put together however the s hooks used to secure the hammock to the stand do not seam so secure. It looks great and is worth the money but I wonder how it will hold up over the seasons. Little metal button clips keep it together and I wonder how long before they rust and fail. If so, I'll buy another one...

I purchased this along with the matching 3-piece Patio Bistro Set for a covered patio off my walk-out basement that faces out into my privacy fenced back yard - the area is very private and the intent was to have comfortable furniture to spend quiet times early morning or late evening. This product line does exactly that. And, the furniture is comfortable enough not to require cushions. As with all metal outdoor furniture, I plan to store inside off season to preserve the finish.
