I love the style of the stand and it takes 5 minutes to put together. Overstock sent me the wrong Phat Tommy hammock -- I ordered the Capari blue, but mistakenly got the tan quilted reversible one. It is so comfortable I decided to just keep it and get a blue quilt for it. It is heavenly for me and my little Havanese to relax in. You will not be disappointed if you order one of these.
