To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I was actually really impressed by these. We originally got them for an airbnb rental but since Covid shut that down I decided to just put them up at home and I’m so glad I did! They are so cute and as long as there’s a couple pillows under your butt and behind your back they are super comfy! I installed them myself in a weight bearing wooden beam under our front foyer. I got the chains and connections for 600lbs plus! This is very important that you install in a WEIGHT BEARING BEAM or install some kind of additional structure to hold the weight of a human. I am a tallish (5’10”) heavy set girl (220 lbs) and I sit comfortably in this chair, and do not feel that it is stressed or likely to fall down at any time, it’s pretty sturdy but that really comes down to making sure you’ve done a good job on your end actually hanging it up.
I left off one star because I noticed the string around the bottom hoop started getting loose. I pulled it tight and secured it myself so that’s not an issue anymore, but it happened on both of the chairs so I’m assuming that’s an issue on all of them. Make sure to keep an eye for the macrame getting loose under the bottom left knee when you’re sitting in it.
Pros: super cute swing looks just like the picture, feels sturdy, easy to hang
Cons: stunk so bad out of the box! It’s been airing out for 2 days now and still stinks. Like mildew. The rope moves easily exposing the white hoop underneath. That wouldn’t be a huge problem except for the fact that the white is chipping and rusty underneath.
Overall, if I could buy it again, I would purchase from a different company.
This product is super cute and pretty comfy. We bought it for our daughter’s (indoor) play room and I’m happy with it for that use. She’s two and LOVES it. Way beyond anticipated. Like, parents... GET THIS. Kids get their playground energy out and you don’t have to go freeze your buns off in winter to do so.
I’d be cautious if this will be used often by adults or used outdoors. I’m not sure of the sturdiness. Neither my husband or I will sit on it because we don’t want to break it. (We’re average sized people!) And it definitely seems like the thread would not hold up well if exposed to any weather (we’re in Colorado and I really don’t think I’d use it anywhere other than indoors or on a covered porch).
One other note is that the threads aren’t super tight. So you can occasionally see the white metal rings that the yarn is wrapped around. It doesn’t bother me because we got the ivory color. If it was a different color I’d probably be bummed because it would be more noticeable. But price trumps all in this case and I don’t think this could be best for the cost.
Overall, I love it for how we’ll use it! Parent win, for sure.
Bought for a friend this year for Christmas - we are in our late 20's but it was just too cute to pass up. This thing is surprisingly sturdy - we got a stand with it since we didnt want to drill into the ceiling, but its comfortable and cute and sits a full size adult and a few cats very comfortably - also it looks great. If you know someone who wants a cute swing this is a great option
I bought this for my daughter's room as a hanging reading chair. It really is adorable and looks so fun. Unfortunately the quality is just no there. The ropes that cover the outer chair support are not fully tied or adhered to the base in any way. So every time my daughter goes to sit in the chair and gets off there are ropes that start to come undone from around the chair. We haven't even had this chair for a month and have had to fix it multiple times. I will be returning it and looking for a higher quality option elsewhere. Super disappointing.
My kids love these swings. They’re super comfy and relaxing. They will add a pillow or blanket to make it even more comfortable. My only complaint is that some of the strings are coming undone. I’m afraid the whole thing will fall apart and there will be no support.
