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!

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.

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.

Received product within two days of order. Product was well packed and in excellent condition. Very easy to do business with this company. The love seat swing is very nice and was easy to install. Very strong material with metal frame.

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!

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.

I am impressed with the quality of both the hammock and the stand. It's a good thing I like it so much because I'm sure it will be around for years to come. I was pleasantly surprised at how easy the duo is to put together. The stand has three bars that slide into the "feet' of the stand held there by internal metal pins. No tools required. The hammock or course did not need assembly either. The stand comes with metal hooks and chain to hang the hammock from. Just FYI.

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!

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 loved this swing at first. Pro's first - Great design and added a sense of fun to our deck. Everyone from kids to adults loved it and had to try it out. Now for the Con's - the metal has already started to rust and has left my deck stained (isn't this an outdoor swing???) and it now creaks like crazy when you are swinging on it. I so wanted this to last a long time but for the price it is not worth the fact that it didn't even make it through one summer season. The only reason it gets 2 stars is because it still looks nice until you get up close and see the rust stains on the base and chain and as long as you don't swing on it you don't have to hear the creaking.

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.

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...

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!

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 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 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!

Everything about this Swing is 110% My husband is a Sheet metal contractor and He says its 110% of Great Workmanship and Construction. The finish is smooth and was worth more than we Paid. Our Grandaughter lines up all her dolls and she is busy for hours!. We hung it from Huge Old Oak Tree. With 30 extra feet of chain it is the best Tree Swing ever.It will be there for Years and Years! Oh we had is Powdered Coated White to match the trim on the Barn and our white Gates and Fences.Even with the extra $65.00 we paid for that it is still worth more than we Paid. WE LOVE IT! Especially about 5:00 with a Cocktail!

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.

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

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.

Fountains add the relaxing sound of running water to any setting. Outdoor fountains allow water to spout, jet, pour or trickle into a basin before draining away. Fountains range in size from burbling rock gardens ideal for tabletops to large pieces of public art. If you live in an urban area or a busy apartment complex, you can use a fountain to create a sense of privacy by masking traffic and other noises. When choosing an outdoor fountain, first consider how much space you have. Many yards can accommodate large pedestal-style outdoor fountains while a smaller fountain will create a focal point in a petite flower garden. The longer the waterfall, the more noise it creates; consider volume when choosing your garden fountain.
