I have wanted a porch swing (in our case a swing that's attached under our deck) for a long time. Black metal was just what I wanted but hadn't seen anything like this at retail. It looks exactly as pictured and is very sturdy. Many compliments on it already. The curved seat is very comfortable without a cushion. If you use this under a deck be aware that you will need to buy extra chain and some link locks - easy to get at any hardware store. I just spray painted the extra chain links black to match. You will also need to buy the eye hooks for the ceiling or underside of the deck floor -- these do not come with the swing. Easy to assemble. Arrived within a week. Very, very happy with this purchase. If you're on the bubble with this -- go for it.
This swing is fabulous. I have had it for almost 4 years now. It hangs under my pergola outside where it is exposed to all the elements. After about 2 years the black coating does sometimes leave a residue on clothes when you sit on it, but for the price and the look, that is something I can live with!
I could not be more pleased with my purchase of this swing. Everything was included, it was simple to assemble, and it exceeded my expectations. This swing was to replace a wooden one I had hanging from a frame. The chains were longer than necessary so I draped them over the frame and used them for plant hangers.This was my first purchase from Overstock.com, but I'm certain it will not be my last. I enthusiastically recommend this product and this company.
Love it! Love it! Love it! My husband and I are extremely pleased with our swing. It was simple to assemble (I did it). The color is perfect with the rest of my patio furniture. The size is great. It's not so large that it overpowers the space, but it provides plenty of room for two people to sit comfortably.
I love this swing. It arrived on schedule. My husband and I hung it asap. We have been enjoying it ever since. The only thing I may recommend is a cusion only because depending where you are it gets cold but it is comfortable without a cushion
As other reviews mentioned, the swing was difficult to assemble. You need some serious muscle to align the holes, but it worked out. There was a dime sized dent on the top of the back arch which is very noticable and it doesn't seem that it will hold up very well outdoors. But on the flip side, it is sturdy, looks great and who can beat the price. We are happy with it and it has become my favorite spot for moring coffee. I'd definitiely recommend it. Just know what you are buying.
we ordered the swing and rocking chairs for our back porch. we could not be happier! they are so easy to put together and the appearance is just beautiful! they "sit" comfy but we did add cushions. i believe this swing and rockers will last for years to come.
I purchased this swing to go under an old T-gym (set in concrete) in my back yard. It looks and works great. Now I get to set under the arbor that I made the T-gym into and enjoy swinging and bird and butterfly watching in my garden. It looks great. Very sturdy and a great price. Instructions aren't great but it took me less than 30 minutes to put togeather. Love it.
