I could sit in this thing all day. If I ever get the chance, I will. The chair needs to be put together by propping the wooden poles into the rope holders and the stand has several hand screws that hold the tubes together. No big deal really. Worth putting together for sure.

I have had this swing from O.co for SEVERAL YEARS. And yes, it WILL rust. I've only re-painted it one time thus far...but HEY...the wood swing I had prior to this one required even MORE maintenance. I don't mind the trade-off...because this swing is definitely more upscale in appearance. I use it ALL the time.

The shipping box for the C-stand is completely inadequate. It arrived with parts protruding outside the box on 2 different spot. This cause the paint to be scraped off of the stand in a couple of spots. It was too heavy and cumbersome to deal with returning, so we assembled it anyway. The top portion of the stand did not fit properly into the bottom section and the screw holes would not line up until resorting to a hammer to force the top far enough down into the bottom portion to allow the supplied screws to be installed. The chair is confusing to assemble. I did not expect to be required to assemble the chair itself. The wood on the chair arms is very rough and not at all smooth like furniture should be. It requires sanding and then you would need to re-stain it for it to look right. Once it is assembled, the back of the chair tends to hit the C-stand a lot. If you have a place that you can hang the chair without a stand, it would be FAR better. The C-stand is okay but it does not compare to one that is hanging from a support beam. With all that being said, the chair is comfy and suits our purposes fairly well. It seems to be safe.

The order arrived about 5 days after my purchase, 3 days earlier than expected. I purchased the swing with the black cushion since I figured that would match whatever else I have on my deck and patio. The wood arms are a nice color, but I suspect they scratch easily since they have a somewhat shiny finish. The directions for assembly are horrible! I guess I am a visual person and I need diagrams. I put the swing together by looking at the picture on the box, I'm still not certain if the cushion is on the right way or not. I guess I will determine if the swing is put together the right way once I sit in it. The swing appears to be quite sturdy and it looks nice too. I had planned on attaching it to the underside of my deck, but the swing does not come with an eye bolt. I will be headed to the hardware store later to pick one up. Once my patio is extended next month, I might consider purchasing the free-standing frame.

This chair is simple to put together and hang. Great material and design. We do have to take it down so it doesn't get hammered by the wind, and you have to take out all the wood sticks and put them back each time, but other than that it's great.

so far the swing is holding up and looking great. the price was a little higher than a wood swing would have been but this one will be less to maintain. color I ordered was mocha and it was true to the color on the site.

It is far more comfortable than I had hoped. Seems like it was made well. I expect to have it for a long time.

I liked this hanging chair so much that I bought a second one. Material is strong and well sewn. I have mine hanging from a sturdy tree branch. I wrapped a heavy gauge nylon rope around the branch and hung the chair from there. You need to take your time to adjust it so it fits your comfort. It can be adjusted so you sit back of more upright. To get out of it just put your feet on the ground and take a step back and stand up. Even my cat will sit with me in this chair and he's not one that sits with you.

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 originally gave this hammock a rating of 4 stars, but it fell apart after 3 months and no one in my family is heavy, so that wasn't it. The rope pulled right out of the wood and it is useless. It was pretty, but what a disaster, too bad. I won't buy it again.

Great workmanship, high quality hammock big enough for two to enjoy. I was surprised on how fast it was shipped. I am going to put two 6X6 pressure treated pieces of wood in ground to attach the hammock to. Can't wait to try it out!

This is my favorite Christmas gift from this season. I may not have spoiled myself with a lounger but, I'm sure glad that my niece did. I'm really grateful for my new chair. Thanks to you too Overstock!

I am very happy with the swing. Overall, it is a wonderful product but there were a couple of nicks in the wood. I didn't send it back because it is, after all, an outdoor swing but I was a little disappointed to get a brand new swing with some scuffed places already on it.

I bought these swings for my daughter to replace a very outdated rope chair. I'm very please with the fabric, the wood is solid and smooth. The cost was actually less than I spent on the rope chair originally. It has been a good choice. I'm content to say the least.

We bought the wood hammock set recently. The set comes in two packages. It took us a while to setup the wood stand. The stand is very heavy and sturdy. It looks very nice in our backyard. We did have an issue with the hammock and it was too long for our stand. When I laid on the hammock, my bottom touched the floor. Called overstock and found out that we received a wrong size hammock. The exchange is a painless process and received the right length hammock for the wooden stand is 3 days. Great service overstock!

In Florida these are well of $@#$ and these are just as comfortable. I have them under our our back deck. Now I have a place to sway, read and reflect on the day. Just what I have been wanting.

This swing is wonderful, overstock has great stuff. The only thing i didn't care for was a few dings on the wooden bar but it really doesn't matter bc no one will see that as it is hung high.

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).

We were excited to hang the chair when I arrived but were disappointed for 2 reasons: The pillow tab was missing grommets so it would have been impossible to secure it to the chair and more disturbing was the fact that the "pockets" where the cross bars insert are not deep enough so the bars do not stay intact when you get off the swing. We don't have the patience to be picking up the bars and reinserting them every time we get off the swing and although we could install our own grommets in the pillow, we chose to return the swing instead. Lesson learned (again) - you do get what you pay for...

My old wooden swing finally crumbled to pieces and I needed a replacement that I did not have to assemble myself. That is the main reason I spent a little more and bought this swing. Came in a huge box, completely assembled and ready to hang. My kind of product! And *** shipping!!! I LOVE this beautiful swing. It is high quality, very comfortable and looks beautiful in my backyard.

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.
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.
Very few items of porch and patio furniture offer the peace and relaxation of hammocks and swings, and as far as outdoor furniture is concerned, it's hard to compete with a porch swing's decorative charm. Because porch swings need to support weight without compromising the stability of the porch, it's important to take the time to complete the installation safely. A little planning before and during the installation goes a long way in ensuring your new porch swing remains enjoyable for years to come.

Pick intelligently designed patio furniture that you can move around easily for quick shifts from storage to relaxing to entertaining.
