Good price with a huge downside
Nov 29, 2017
I purchased 2 of these rockers 8 months ago. These were the best price I could find, shipped promptly, arrived unharmed, were easy to put together, and are very comfortable. Unfortunately the positive aspects stop there. The rockers were immediately put on our front porch which gets morning sun and were shielded from the majority of the rain by the eave. After a few months we started to notice spots of mildew forming in the wood grain. This was alarming, because we have other Cypress outdoor furniture and it has only grayed with time and the elements, but we have never seen the slightest sign of mildew. After month 6, the rockers became an eyesore in the front of our house due to the large concentrations of mildew and we promptly put them in the garage out of sight. We have attempted multiple times to remove the mildew following various methods found on the internet. Some of these have helped, but none have totally removed the mildew. I have now resorted to sanding the rockers to reveal fresh the fresh cypress underneath, but have noticed the mildew has spread deep into the wood grain. Cypress is known for its longevity and resilience to the elements and after 8 months, this is unacceptable. This resilience is due to the cypressene oil in cypress wood which preserve and protects it. I am of the belief that the low price point here, is due to the low amount of cypressene present in the cypress used in their construction. I am not sure where this cypress is procured, but our furniture built from Louisiana cypress is still beautiful and strong after many years exposed to the elements directly. I would not purchase this product again and I would not recommend it to anyone.

I just ordered 2 of these. I had been eyeing them for months and caught them on sale. They are even more beautiful in person. I had a problem with one of my rockers arriving damaged and Lehman's customer service was amazing and replaced the chair with no problem. I can't recommend the chair and the customer service at Lehman's enough. The chair is also super easy to put together.

The chair arrived in a timely manner and well packaged. Assembled required a 1/2 inch wrench and about 15 minutes. It is mostly assembled at the factory. The wood is attractive and well sanded. The chair is generously sized and very comfortable. Plan to finish with spar varnish.

I bought this for my 82 yr old hubby simple to put together. We had a professional painter put the finish on it after I had sanded each of the edges kind of round. then we added a fur seat pillow and the next morning, we had a possum asleep in it.

These are lovely chairs, easy to assemble and very comfortable. I have had two for several years. The whole family likes to sit in them so we bought 4 more.

This rocking chair is incredible. It was very easy to assemble. It is extremely comfortable to sit it. Definitely allows you to gently rock your cares away. I would highly recommend this product.
