My aunt had a green swing that I loved to use as a child and when I saw this one on Overstock, I knew I had to buy it. I thought I'd have to purchase a cushion, but it's very comfortable without it. The color is a pretty silvery-green. I've had many compliments on it and my neighbors enjoy it too! Thanks Overstock for your great pricing and shipping costs. You're the first website I visit to check on what I'm looking for.
