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.

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...

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 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.

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.

Arrived just in time for Father's Day! Very pleased with vibrant colors! Wooden stretchers are substantial & absolutely prevent a cocoon feeling. Length is perfect.

Very pretty product...problem is no wooden bar to keep the hammock opened. The picture is deceiving as it shows it being open all the time. That just is not the way it is. Very hard to get in and out of...2 people almost impossible. We have taken it down and gotten something with a bar...much better

Looks to be of good quality. Easy to put together. Swing looks nice and sturdy. We're hoping this iron swing will last longer than the wood ones we used to have. Very happy with purchase, and overstock had the best price on the internet that we could find anywhere!

I bought two of these chairs one year ago this month. We took them down during any rains we got (not a lot, we live in AZ), and they hung under our patio roof so they only received 2-3 hours of morning sunlight when they were up. BOTH chairs broke in the last month injuring both people who were sitting in them, one of which was my poor 12 year old daughter (one of the poles holding the arm hit her in the head, my nephew was the other one it broke on and he had a bruised tailbone from falling). The "tough nylon straps" are what broke so unless you have replacement material and are a seamstress, they're not fixable. I am extremely disappointed that we spent over $*** on these two chairs and they only lasted one year. Save your money and buy something of a higher quality!

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!

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.

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 actually bought this swing over three years ago and still love it! I get compliments all the time. This iron swing replaced a wood swing I had previously that did not hold up. I recommend this highly. It compliments my country porch setting perfectly.

I received the swing and had read the review about rust in spots so I painted my swing with rustproof paint and 2 years later is has rusted through and can't be sandblasted it is so rusted and thin in spots. I loved the swing and it was the best seating and swinging one I ever has. The chains were enclosed in vinal and are like new.I would love to have another one but I don't have the money to replace it. I really would have loved it to last at least as long as my wooden swing I replaced did. 14 years. Lrobinson NC I buy from Overstock often and this is the only purchace that didn't last.

I'm back to purchase one more for my wife. She didn't want one when I ordered mine. Once it was delivered, assembled, and she had a chance to sit in it, she had a little change of heart. These things are comfortable, pretty easy to assemble and well made.

Just received this today - fast delivery! It was a little more than I had originally wanted to spend on a hammock, but I know that the sunbrella fabric is worth it if you are going to keep something outside. We are not very good about bringing stuff in during rain, etc. This is a great muted color (dove) and seems like it will hold up well without showing any fading. The wood and the roping is also nice looking. Came with detailed instructions and the hardware to mount it in-between two trees. Very comfy and not stiff like I thought it would be. LOOKS GREAT AND TOOK ONLY A FEW MINUTES TO PUT UP. THE KIDS ARE ON IT ALREADY.

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.

I like my swing very much. It was put together in a snap and has held up really well over the past 2 seasons.

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.

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.
Life relaxes outdoors and patio furniture helps you slow your pace with new designs in outdoor chairs, benches and other great patio garden furniture.

Perhaps catching rays in a poolside chaise lounge or swinging in a hammock under your favorite shade tree defines summer for you. This patio garden furniture buying guide will help you sort through your options in casual outdoor furniture.
Your backyard is designed for your family to enjoy, and the kids in your family likely spend a lot of time back there during the summer. Whether your kids are playing in the yard or joining the family for a weekend barbecue, you want them to be safe and happy. Make the most of your outdoor space by choosing patio furniture your kids can enjoy with you.
Just because you have a tight corner or small square of asphalt for a patio is no reason not to make the most of it. After all, decorating and furnishing your garden and patio opens up an extra living space in your home. Pick intelligently designed patio furniture that you can move around easily for quick shifts from storage to relaxing to entertaining.
