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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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 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!

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...

This swing is very nice. It is solid and will probably last a good long time. The only problem I have is that it had a large dent, right on the top of the arch in the back. I'm guessing these are returned items, because it looks like it was dropped in shipping to get a dent like that, but the box it was shipped in showed absolutely no signs of wear. I didnt notice until I had partially assembled it and flipped it upright, otherwise I would have considered complaining and asking for a replacement. The dent is fairly large, and is noticeable, but the finish hasnt chipped or anything, so I figure, as long as there's no bare metal it shouldnt rust, so I'm not that concerned about it.

I am a stickler for quality products. When I buy something, I usually spend the extra dollar to get something that will last for years rather than months. I expect to spend more to get more for my money. That said, this product was a cheap fix to a severe lack in my life. I dearly wanted a stand for my hammock. Voila! A cheap stand. It is sturdily made of solid metal poles. These poles, however, use only your weight and one push button to secure each section of the frame together. For a slight person like me, this is not a problem, but for someone more substantial, it might be. This product will do the job for me for a while. Ultimately, though, I would have liked to have had something of higher quality that would undoubtedly last a much longer time. For the money I paid, I think this product was worthwhile, especially considering the prices I've seen in the stores.

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 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!

....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.

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 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.

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.
