This took about 20 mins to put together - but I was watching the Royal wedding so maybe faster if paying attention. The rope does slide a bit but I think a knot will stop that. The color is rich and it looks very expensive - even my grumpy Mom liked it!
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes
How is the quality of the product? very sturdy
Did the description onsite accurately describe the product? yes
Love the swing! Took me 15 minutes to put it together. The pieces are solid, heavy and sturdy. The ONLY con is the ropes they use to hang it. As nice as the swing is, having vinyl roping to hang it just doesn't look right. I'm going today to buy chain to hang it with. None-the-less, the swing is a great deal. Something comparable to the quality would cost at LEAST double around here so I don't mind spending a few extra dollars on a chain. I could kick myself for not taking the old chain off my old swing before I took it to the dump!!!
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? exact match
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Better than I expected. The wood is very heavy and durable. I suspect with proper care it will last for many years to come.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Perfect
Lovely swing. I loved the look of the rope but it is way too short for our 9 ft porch ceiling. It also doesn't come with any hardware to hang it from the ceiling. Had to buy new rope and searched all over for galvanized eye screws and locking carabiners to hang it. Had it not been on sale, I'd be more disappointed with all the extra expense because the rope and hardware wasn't that cheap or easy to find. I researched how to hang it on this old house. But the swing itself is exactly what I wanted and I still like rope better than chain. Haven't hung it yet as I'm waiting for my hardware ordered elsewhere to be delivered.....
I put this together myself. It is comfortable to sit in, and tolerates 2 adults without a problem. The rope is okay, but not easy to adjust, the way you can adjust chain links, so I may switch to chain links later.
I order the swing and I didn't have the opportunity to put it together for a few weeks. I ike the swing however, since I was delayed assembling it closer to return policy - I would have sent it back. It was used and dirty and you it had been repackaged. The cost to ship it back wouldn't have been worth the trouble to send it back. Once it was assembled it looks nice and sturdy and I'm curious how it will hold up. Overall, I pleased with the product but wished I would have open the box upon arrival.
The quality of the swing was as expected - well built, nicely finished, quality construction. As with most imported products, the assembly instructions were a brief one page "follow the pictures" which proved adequate for the level of assembly required. Unfortunately, the hardware package which included a handful of bolts, nuts, and washers, was missing all four "A" connecting bolts which are needed to attach the bench seat to the frame. With some persistence, I was able to find a suitable substitute at a local hardware store. This resulted in taking longer to assemble the swing, but did not prevent us from enjoying it once assembly was completed.
Hello envo. Thanks for your interest in the Royal Tahiti Yellow Balau Hardwood Two-seater Swing with Curved Back. Since this is an outdoor swing, I believe that it is. But if you wanted to add a layer yourself just to be sure, it couldn't hurt. I hope this helps, and thanks for shopping with us.

Thank you for your inquiry. We did some researchand found this unit has a 57 inch nylon rope for hanging.overstockcustomercare1 on Feb 15, 2013
The ropes were too long for our use. We cut them, tied off the ends so they would not go through the hardware and then melted the ends so they wouldn't ravel. My daughter actually likes the ends we made better than the original ends.mumseybelle on Jun 12, 2013
