I got the toffee color swing which is a caramel color. It looks like real wood from afar. I was expecting it to be like trex decking type of material and it is a bit more plastic like than decking perhaps because it is obviously not as thick. However, it's good quality, and the chain link is heavy duty. You'll need eye bolts to hang it. Seats my three kids nicely. My husband and I can swing together with lots of room. It's going to last a really long time and I love that there will be no maintenance or worry of rotting.
....AND an unexpectedly terrific customer service experience. I originally (and accidentally) ordered a chair that looks very similar to this one (the shape was "egg") and realized I wanted this one....I called within 30 minutes of my order and while they made no promises, they said they would do their best to stop the shipment and get me a refund so I could order the correct one. Within 2 days, they notified me they had stopped shipment - in the meantime, I had received update emails they were working on it, which I really appreciated. I received my refund quickly after that and was able to order this one (tear drop) - and the price had even dropped. So THANK YOU customer service!! It is everything I hoped it would be. Fairly easy to put together (I did it myself, but would be best if you have two adults) and looks as fantastic as the picture. SUPER comfy, seems quite sturdy (although I don't know if I'd encourage a 200lb man to sit in it) and looks great. SO pleased with it! There is going to be a fight for this spot regularly in my house..... Just a note - this is NOT a wicker chair. It looks like wicker, but the material is more of a plastic/rubber (wound around a metal frame). I actually like this better because it's softer and has less "sharp" edges (as true wicker can often have). Chair does not look cheap - it's well made and will impress.
I bought this chair to sit in the shade and read a book, or espy the wildlife on afternoons. The chair looks more substantial than others I have seen so I was slightly disappointed when it arrived. There is only a very flimsy piece of foam in the seat and in the back, so when you sit, it completely collapses around you. But.......... I fixed it... I took measurements and went to local home warehouse and purchased a piece of 3/8" clear plastic flat stock, cut sizes for the bench and back, then took out the stitching and foam, slid in the plastic, replaced the foam and restitched all the places I had removed. Hung with 1/2" eye bolt to large "s" hook and works like a champ now and presently very happy with my redesign. thanks WW
The swing arrived in surprisingly good time (3 days after ordering) and in very good condition (well packed ... no dings). It looks exactly like what was advertised. We bought the white color. The swing is sturdy and has what looks like a strong frame throughout. The underside too has five bars running that hopefully provides enough support to increase the life of the swing. There is too much resin though -- so it does feel more plastic and less wicker. But, that might be a problem with all wicker swings these days -- with the market's emphasis on easy cleaning and maintenance. Our patio has an 8 foot ceiling, so the chain that came with it was too long. It looks like the chain will fit a 10 foot ceiling. It was easy to move the links and "re-size" the chain to fit our needs.
