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.
I am so pleased with my porch swing. It arrived very quickly and was easy to assemble. I noticed that other people said they had to buy extra chain to hang their swings, but I didn't have that problem. We did purchase a pair of spring devices that attaches the chain on the swing to the hooks on the ceiling to minimize the stress on the ceiling when you sit on the swing, so we didn't use the big hooks that came with the swing. The swing is comfortable to sit on and beautiful to look at. It's only been up a week so I can't really testify to it's durability, but it is on a covered porch so it should be fine. I also purchased the matching rocker and table and am satisfied with the whole group.
I really like the swing and it was a easy to assemble. I removed the rubber covering on the chains but would recommend keeping a piece to wrap around the hook. When the rubber covered hooks rub the metal hooks they grind. If possible, just buy rubber covered hooks!
