After viewing this swing online, we knew it was exactly what we were looking for, but would it be as pleasing to the eye, comfortable as well as durable? Well, have had it for approx. 2 months and can answer yes to all. It looks wonderful on the porch of the house, it is definitely comfy (even more so if you add a cushion), and it holds two adults comfortably. As far as durability, since we have a covered porch and plan to store it inside during the winter months, that may not be as much of an issue as for others that plan to leave it outdoors in the elements. We also purchased the side table and the rocking chair which are equally as pleasing asthestically, as well as comfortable. Would highly recommend all three. As with other reviews, the chain was too short, so did have to purchase other chain to add to the length; afterall, you gotta be able to touch the ground to swing - right?? Very satisified indeed with this purchase and when we pull up to the house, we always comment how our new porch furniture enhances the look and charm of our home.
