I loved this swing - I had 2 Vintage Wrought Iron Bentwood Rockers and this was a perfect complement to them. It was easy to assemble and the plastic coated chain is an added safety feature for little hands. Loved It.

Although there were 2 cuts in the vinyl wrapping, one around the center back pole to secure back to something, and on the vertical pole itself. The swing is very comfortable, and attractive. It included more than enough chain covered by thick plastic to prevent cuts, and very large/strong hooks for hanging. I did not send it back because of the cuts in the vinyl wrapphing. Excellent value.

Hi, I am an erstwhile traveler through the Yucatan with nothing but my backpack and a hammock-- not as lovely as this one but still have and Love and treasure. Mayan hammocks pose a challenge intially to many of us because there is no bar...but this cocoon like capability is what makes them safe for one or more to sleep in!These are hammocks which are meant to billow up around you so you are secure and can suspend a few feet in the air safely even if you are a kickboxing sleeper!as well, the hammocks are luxurious for relaxing and reading or even cuddling ...although i do not recommend cuddling with a pet unless very calm because my dogs and cats can claw when climbing.anyway if you are open to experiencing a WONDERFUL level of relaxation and comfort from a hammock that is atraditional for USa but an ancient bed style in the Yucatan, you may just wish as i do, to put these inside the house,on the porch, and in the garden for year round remarkably restorative resting!

really nice swing. Matches the Woodlawn Swing Frame very well. It was really easy to build and can be done with 1 person. The chain was a bit long, but easy to shorten for the frame (had to cut away some of the plastic, but not a problem). Our wooden swing rotten and fell over. I am hoping this will last for many years.

This swing arrived faster than anticipated. All the pieces were covered with protective plastic from the box. All screws and necessary items for assembly were located in a little plastic pouch. It has large hooks at the top of the chain to hang the swing by. The chain holding the swing remains covered with thick plastic to protect your fingers. It's a little heavy when assembled but nothing I couldn't manage by myself. It's really pretty on the porch and I'm still smiling.

I had bought a large mayan hammock and this stand fits the hammock perfectly. The assembly instructions are poorly worded and make it sound way more complicated to put together than it is. My sister and I put it together in about 2 minutes. We didn't have any chain, but the large hammock fits on the supplied hooks. No problem supporting the weight of two adults.

I bought 2 Mayan Hammock chairs and then my brother-in-law didn't want to put eyebolts in the soffit or fascia or ceiling which, fair enough, it's a lovely basswood ceiling with Douglas Fir beams. Anyway, these stands were a great buy - we've been using them for a year now - my niece in particular likes to set up the hammock in different locations - sometimes in the loft, or on the deck or down by the water. Just one warning - the stand will collapse if you kick repeatedly at one of the legs to make yourself swing wildly - luckily my niece wasn't hurt either of the times she did this but you should definitely supervise younger children.

I haven't purchased this from Overstock yet, but was in Mexico this winter visiting the Mayan ruins and saw these for sale at $100. I've so regretted not buying one but now that I see them here I'm hinting to my husband for my birthday. At any rate, now I'm glad I didn't have to tote it back on a cruise ship and plane.

I have slept in and had many mayan hammocks. This one lives up to my expectation for comfort and the color is lovely but it was a little less wide than I expected. The price was very good. A good value..

I received my order quickly and am overall pleased with my purchase, however, I am a little disappointed with the plastic ropes that stretch out when you sit in the chair making the height adjustment somewhat challenging.

I bought this chair to sit in the shade and read a book, or espy the wildlife on afternoons. The chair looks more substantial than others I have seen so I was slightly disappointed when it arrived. There is only a very flimsy piece of foam in the seat and in the back, so when you sit, it completely collapses around you. But.......... I fixed it... I took measurements and went to local home warehouse and purchased a piece of 3/8" clear plastic flat stock, cut sizes for the bench and back, then took out the stitching and foam, slid in the plastic, replaced the foam and restitched all the places I had removed. Hung with 1/2" eye bolt to large "s" hook and works like a champ now and presently very happy with my redesign. thanks WW

Love this swing, sturdy, easy to put together. I removed the plastic safety from the chains, did not think it was necessary.

I was very pleased with how the swing was designed & with good solid manufacturing in the product. The packaging for shipment was also very good with extra screw & nut. I expect to get many years of pleasure out of this swing that will not be as vulnerable to the elements as the wood & cloth swings we have used in the past. A little expensive but should never need replacement. The $2.95 shipping cost was a real bonus. The only feature that would have been nice if the body of the swing was covered in the plastic/rubber coating that was on the chains ( the chain coating is a really nice feature of this swing).

....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.

Excellent price for such a large hammock, 450 pound capacity is HUGE for anything under $100 and handwoven nylon is very durable...if kept out of direct sunlight, will last for several seasons at least! We are looking forward to teaching our little one how to climb in/out of a Mayan hammock. They look more difficult but are really so much easier and more comfortable to relax in than a traditional "bar" hammock. My husband will love this for his father's day gift (and gee darn, I'll have to use it too...)

My family recently vacationed and visited the Mayan Ruins. We saw these beautiful hammocks and instantly wanted one. This hammock is large, sturdy and easy to get in and out. Unlike solid fabric hammocks, it wraps around you as you relax. My husband sleeps in it, just like the Mayans did. The color is dark green and not blue/green as shown in the picture, but that is not a problem. If I had room to hang another I would certainly buy a second!

Durable and sturdy swing for a decent price. We hung ours from a tree branch and used plastic protectors along the chain to not harm the tree. I am certain the iron will withstand the elements for a long time, the coating is quite thick. Even without cushions the bench is comfortable and swings smoothly and quietly. I'm not sure how hot it will get in summer but we plan to have cushions made for it.

The swing arrived in surprisingly good time (3 days after ordering) and in very good condition (well packed ... no dings). It looks exactly like what was advertised. We bought the white color. The swing is sturdy and has what looks like a strong frame throughout. The underside too has five bars running that hopefully provides enough support to increase the life of the swing. There is too much resin though -- so it does feel more plastic and less wicker. But, that might be a problem with all wicker swings these days -- with the market's emphasis on easy cleaning and maintenance. Our patio has an 8 foot ceiling, so the chain that came with it was too long. It looks like the chain will fit a 10 foot ceiling. It was easy to move the links and "re-size" the chain to fit our needs.

I ordered the white and it is WHITE (almost plastic-like in appearance) but my guess is that it won't be quite as pristine after a few seasons . . . so I'm okay with that. The swing is so, so comfortable, very sturdy, and delivery was, ahem, two days EARLY! As others have written, expect to cut a few links out of the chain - I have an old Victorian home, so I didn't expect to have this issue since I have high ceilings. But I did - it's a simple fix. It's better to have more chain than needed than less.

Quite a good product. The swing is heavy duty (and a bit heavy) but manageable. Directions are a bit sketchy but you really only need common sense after looking at the parts. Wait till it is together prior to tightening bolts. Chain was long enough to hang from a 7' outside frame. Actually, had to cut a length off to make it fit and look good. Don't know why the plastic is on the chain...it tends to hold condensation on warm days and might accelerate rust, but the finish if pretty good. I, too, had the little ding on the back top arch that everyone mentions. Nothing to be worried about.
