We decided on this glider, even though it was more expensive than some we considered. We liked the look. We were disappointed when we tried to order it and found it was out of stock. A chat with Overstock did not encourage us that it would ever come back in stock, but we signed up anyway for email notification if it did. Unfortunately we ordered a similar looking glider from another retailer for more money than this one. What a mistake! The retailer was terrific, the product was not. When we got notice this glider was back in stock, we gladly returned the other one and ordered this one. There was but one problem with it. The bolts that came with it were US thread. The nylon insert nuts to go on them were metric thread -- a totally unworkable combination. We bought suitable, rust-proof, replacement bolts and nuts locally after receiving authorization that Overstock would reimburse the cost. We love the design (comfortably slanted back, comfortable seat height, decorative detailing), the quality workmanship (smooth finish, tapered edges, plugs for screw holes), and we really love the smooth movement of the ball bearing suspension of the glider. Even with the nut/bolt glitch, this is the best over-all glider we have seen for the money. In the end, we are totally satisfied.
We are very happy with the glider. It has been less than one year and it is already beginning to turn silver gray, which is what we want. The hardware still has the brass appearance. We do expect that the hardware will begin to rust, in time. Our only dissatisfaction is with the price.
