I waited over a year to write this review...and let me tell you that the metal on this thing from the chain...to the stand will rust. And I have mine in an area that does NOT get wet. I have read other reviews on Christopher Night patio furniture or outside lounging chairs where every piece of hardware on it rusts...and this is absolutely 100% true. I love the chairs...don't get me wrong...they look great...but whey in the world do you make patio type furniture and not use the proper material is beyond me. I think people who are writing rave reviews have only had their chairs for a limited amount of time. There seems to be a common them with this CK furniture...it all RUSTS!

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.

Dad and I are so happy to be rid of our old metal porch swing. These porch swing chairs are definately a step up. I will be buying one for each of my sons and their wives too.

I really like the swing and it was a easy to assemble. I removed the rubber covering on the chains but would recommend keeping a piece to wrap around the hook. When the rubber covered hooks rub the metal hooks they grind. If possible, just buy rubber covered hooks!

This chair is super comfortable and sturdy. I live by the beach- and to warn you, the metal pieces turned rusty almost immediately. The chain rusts, the nuts/bolts rust. I got some clear spray for the rust and that kept it from spreading somewhat. Overall, a super comfy chair but I don't get why everyone makes outdoor furniture with nuts/bolts that rust.

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!!

This is a very large stand. I measured the height at just over 7 feet. For my families purposes it works perfectly..

The chair frame is VERY LARGE and more suitable to outside than inside (we have it inside)...but it is very sturdy and holds its shape. The instructions to put it together were clear, but there was a scratch on the black metal (takern care of by a Sharpee). All in all would highly recommend, and Overstock was great with prompt shipping.

....AND an unexpectedly terrific customer service experience. I originally (and accidentally) ordered a chair that looks very similar to this one (the shape was "egg") and realized I wanted this one....I called within 30 minutes of my order and while they made no promises, they said they would do their best to stop the shipment and get me a refund so I could order the correct one. Within 2 days, they notified me they had stopped shipment - in the meantime, I had received update emails they were working on it, which I really appreciated. I received my refund quickly after that and was able to order this one (tear drop) - and the price had even dropped. So THANK YOU customer service!! It is everything I hoped it would be. Fairly easy to put together (I did it myself, but would be best if you have two adults) and looks as fantastic as the picture. SUPER comfy, seems quite sturdy (although I don't know if I'd encourage a 200lb man to sit in it) and looks great. SO pleased with it! There is going to be a fight for this spot regularly in my house..... Just a note - this is NOT a wicker chair. It looks like wicker, but the material is more of a plastic/rubber (wound around a metal frame). I actually like this better because it's softer and has less "sharp" edges (as true wicker can often have). Chair does not look cheap - it's well made and will impress.

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.

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.

Good metal, and it sets up in minutes. I was simply stunned by how fast this got shipped to me. Overstock customer for life. Also, if you have not purchased a hanging hammock chair, do so-I just ordered one and it is wonderful as well. Great!

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.

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!

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.

I purchased this because the wooden one out in the yard literally fell apart. It is perfect. Made for two with mounting hardware included. I even had one sent to my son. My son did not care for the hooks used to hang it so he just modified it and it worked well. It's a nice little metal swing. Just right!

I have wanted a porch swing (in our case a swing that's attached under our deck) for a long time. Black metal was just what I wanted but hadn't seen anything like this at retail. It looks exactly as pictured and is very sturdy. Many compliments on it already. The curved seat is very comfortable without a cushion. If you use this under a deck be aware that you will need to buy extra chain and some link locks - easy to get at any hardware store. I just spray painted the extra chain links black to match. You will also need to buy the eye hooks for the ceiling or underside of the deck floor -- these do not come with the swing. Easy to assemble. Arrived within a week. Very, very happy with this purchase. If you're on the bubble with this -- go for it.

I have owned several of these chairs, I live in Florida, so it stays outside all year long. They usually rot in about a year (ropes). This appears to have nylon ropes, so I'm hoping it will last longer (since it isn't cheap). One important item, it is rather long, I had to retie it, you can't take out the original knot after you sit in it and now it is the right height from the ground. However, the top wood dowel is so wide (wider than standard) than I can't turn around in my metal swing holder. Also, the dowel 'holder' are strange, if you aren't careful, the dowels can pop out. It happened the first time that I sat in the chair, maybe with time, the holder stretch to fit and it will not happen.

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.

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.
