Love these string chairs for our big front porch that overlooks the mountains. They were simple to install, are sturdy and just the thing for looking at sunsets and stars. You can sit in them as is, add a pillow or stretch way out like a hammock. We had similar ones years ago and loved them and I recently priced them again...about triple what I paid for these! And as always Overstock got them to us in short order. Thanks for making seating on the porch comfortable!
I love the way this hammock looks, and it seems to be well constructed, but it is very uncomfortable. I am 5' 10" 135 lbs and the bottom edge of the hammock cuts into the back of my knees when I sit in it causing an incredibly painful rope burn and cutting off the circulation in my legs. The top edge folds up around my head and pushes my head forward which isn't a comfortable way to sit. This hammock would probably be great for kids, but I can't imagine how it could be comfortable for adults, maybe for very small adults. I am sad that it didn't live up to all the good reviews I read before I purchased.
I absolutely love this swing. My only problem is, I could waste an entire day lazing in it. It seemed a bit pricey, but it is well worth it now that I have it up. I bought a second one, but I have not found a place to put it up yet. If I have to, I will make or buy a frame to hang it from. I would LOVE to fill my yard with these for an upcoming party.
After I purchased the first swing for one granddaughter's birthday, the other granddaughter asked for one too. They love to sit in this marvelous swing to read or to just daydream. It's very well made and we're very happy with our purchase.
It looks great. It's identicle to a swing that we purchased in Mexico that has survived 5 years hanging on a tree in our backyard. It is finally showing some signs of wear.. Since this swing looks like the same swing, I'm planning on at least another 5 years of use.
I bought this swing for our roof top garden, and it is so comfortable and such a hit w/ adults and kids alike that I just ordered a second one. The quality seems high in that it is constructed nicely and does not feel cheap. I don't know what to say about durability as we've only been hanging it outside for about a month, but it seems to rebound nicely from rain. It's a great reading and napping swing. The kids love to twist it up and let it unwind, and it seems to tolerate that kind of play well enough, too. I'm definitely comfortable recommending it.
This is a great hammock swing. It is actually large enough for you to lie in, not just sit in, and the great thing about it is it doesn't take up too much room. We have only had it up for two weeks so I am curious how the misty mornings and fog we get here in California will affect the swing. It is very well-made. Some instructions would have been nice on how to use the extension rope (which I never ended up using but was curious as to how to attach it to the existing rope). Overall a great product and I am thinking about hanging a few more around my backyard because they are so comfortable.
I would not be afraid to use overstock.com again. very satisfied with my purchase.
