My husband and I bought this swing for my mother-in-law for Mother's day/Birthday. She wanted a swing for her front porch. She lives in a HUGE house - in an EXTREMELY nice neighborhood. She was almost in tears when she saw it and was even more teary-eyed and happy when we hung it up. It was easy to put up (although we did have to buy hooks and extra chain because she has an extra high ceiling) and so comfortable to sit in. We thought we would have to get a cusion for it but we didn't. My mother-in-law has gotten numerous compliments from her neighbors and everyone keeps asking where she got it. She and my father-in-law sit out there every morning and evening just swinging and drinking their coffee. This was a GREAT buy!!!
