I can definitely say that this outdoor seat compliments my patio very well. It is very modern and stylish. The cushions are very easy to wash. It is not heavy and can be moved around very easily.

    Design Toscano

    Promising review: "I've had this swing for three years now. It is still beautiful, with very minimal signs of rust around the bolts. I keep it near the house, under the soffit, so it gets a bit of shelter from our occasional rain showers. I keep it inside through our snowy Idaho winters. I do wish it had a couple extra links in the chain so short people like me (5'4'') could sit in it without our feet dangling mid-air. Otherwise, it's comfortable. Overall, I highly recommend this swing." —Gaucster

I’m so excited we can use it as a (giant) ottoman, a table, or (my favorite) – if you push it up against a wall and add some pillows it’s a second couch! Pretty dreamy. The one downside is that the pad isn’t attached to the base at all, so it shifts around a bunch. We’re going to get something to fix that, but it would have been nice to have some ties." —TIMSA
