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.

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

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.

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 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!

This hammock took several weeks to get to my house, but it was worth the wait. The quality is great and it was very easy to install. I was looking in stores and online and never found anything like this. The weave of the rope is much tighter than traditional hammocks, so it makes for a much more comfortable place to lay, plus your toes, feet and elbows don't end up sticking through. The rope is also made of a soft cotton so it isn't scratchy against your skin. The best part is the fringe - it is truly what makes this hammock so unique and gorgeous. I look out my back window every day and fall in love with this lovely hammock over and over again!!

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 received my swing about a month ago, and absolutely love it. It is so beautiful that I hesitate to cover it with cushions. It looks just like the picture and was very easy to assemble. It is the perfect swing for two people. It will enhance any patio, porch, or garden. Keep in mind that it is a 48" swing and does not fit the traditional stands(60") very well. It does work, but is not completely centered.

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 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!

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 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.

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...

Very comfy and strong. It isn't flat like the picture, more of the traditional hammock without spreader bar. Could easily fit two adults. Enjoyed it Sunday afternoon.

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!

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 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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

Create comfortable outdoor seating with hammocks and swings and turn your patio and garden into more living space. Hammocks are the classic image of relaxation, but shopping for hammocks and swings can be far from relaxing, especially with the many different types available. Let this buying guide help you find the perfect additions to your outdoor furniture that will bring the luxurious relaxation you have always imagined.
It's easy to enjoy your backyard in a relaxing hammock chair, also known as a hanging chair. Just like traditional hammocks and swings, a hammock chair cradles and hugs the body when you sit in it. Compared to a hammock, however, a hammock chair requires far less space and, therefore, fits in a larger number of places. They're especially nice to have on front porches or in backyards with lots of trees. These hanging chairs are also comfortable alternatives to solid chairs and can be hung in most of the places that solid chairs are placed. Choosing a hammock chair is pretty straightforward, but it is important to keep a few details in mind so you can choose the perfect hammock chair for your space and style.
Hammocks evoke images of summertime peace and lazy afternoons with a good book. There are many more styles of hammocks and swings now than in the past; you don't have to set up a hammock between two trees anymore if you don't want to. Many are instead used with hammock stands. Although some hammocks are built with safety in mind, there are still things you must pay attention to in order to keep a hammock safe. If used improperly, hammocks may pose a serious fall hazard or risk of strangulation.

Mankind and, of course, womankind have adorned themselves with precious metals for centuries. We've always loved the color, shine, and rarity of gold and silver, fashioning the metals into coins, crowns, and even dishes. For talented artisans and their patrons, fine jewelry meant gold and silver and, recently, platinum.

The jewelry industry uses the term "alternative metals" to describe the trend toward using industrial metals and alloys for contemporary design. This alternative metals buying guide offers some basic information to help you learn more about these fashionable metals.
A beautiful patio furniture set enhances a home's unique ambiance, but before purchasing a patio set, you must consider what style best suits you and your home.

This precious metal jewelry buying guide presents some basic information to help you recognize and select quality precious metal jewelry that could become treasured family heirlooms.

After deciding on the purpose and room for your new cabinet, it's time to think about material. As with all furniture, you will want to select a cabinet material depending on what you plan to use your cabinet for, as well as your personal taste. Take a look below to learn about the best materials for cabinets. Wood: The majority of cabinets produced are created with hard wood. Wood cabinets can be found in both traditional and contemporary designs. If you are hoping for durability in addition to design, no cabinet looks better and lasts longer than one manufactured using a solid wood. Cherry cabinets offer a sense of classic luxury while holding up to years of use. Oak cabinets conjure up the feel of subtle country beauty, and maple cabinets can look bright, modern and chic. Metal: Metal cabinets are terrific for those looking for a modern touch in their homes; most metal cabinets have a very forward-looking aesthetic, so they are perfect for a contemporary home. Metal cabinets are also great for home offices. Obviously, metal offers great durability, but it is vulnerable to dings and dents. Keep in mind that most metal cabinets have sharp corners, making them slightly less suitable for homes with kids running around. Glass: If you have something you feel like showing off, nothing is better for display purposes than a glass cabinet. These cabinets are certainly more fragile than those made from other materials, but they offer something other cabinets can't: transparency. Many glass cabinets are manufactured with built-in lighting systems to exhibit whatever you choose to place in them. Because of their show-off quality, glass cabinets are perfect for places you expect guests, such as the dining room and living room. Particle board: If you are shopping for a cabinet on a tight budget, looking into particle board cabinets is worthwhile. Particle board is a relatively new material produced by pressing wood particles together, which is then bound with synthetic resin. Furniture created with particle board is almost always the least expensive option and also the lightest, but you will sacrifice some durability. If you plan to move often, a particle board cabinet could be an ideal option. View All Furniture Back to Guides Directory View All Furniture
If you have to handle lots of important documents, filing cabinets are the best way to store and organize large amounts of documents in an easily accessible way. Businesses and homeowners alike can benefit from the way filing cabinets allow access to important documents in a matter of seconds.

Take a look below to learn how to measure an office for filing cabinets.
While traditional metals such as gold and silver dominate the jewelry and ring markets, many consumers turn to stainless steel rings for trendy style, durability and a masculine jewelry statement.

Stainless steel wedding bands are incredibly popular because stainless steel jewelry can last a lifetime.

Use our tips to decide if a piece of stainless steel jewelry or men's ring is right for you.

Bakeware has come a long way over the past few years. Metal and glass have given up their spots as the state-of-the-art of baking in lieu of more temperature-stable silicone bakeware. Silicone bakeware is nonstick, flexible, and cooks very evenly, and it does it all using less oil, butter and shortening.
Some of the best modern jewelry draws inspiration from other industries. Rubber bracelets, ceramic earrings, and titanium rings all use materials from less fashionable trades and bring them into the world of style. Crafted of a metal that will last a lifetime, but with a contemporary flair, titanium wedding rings are the jewelry of choice for many brides and grooms. Are you thinking about choosing titanium? Here's why you might want to.
