If there’s one thing that embodies life in the South, it’s the porch swing. The sole purpose of porch swings is for relaxing and enjoying the outdoors, and whether you live in the Southeast or not, we think you need one! We’ve rounded up some of our favorite porch swings to inspire your outdoor space.
The name says it all, our Sunday Porch Swing is meant for lazy days reading and drinking sweet tea. With a deep cushion, tons of back pillows, and sturdy rails, we envision lots of afternoon naps. We promise it’ll be your new favorite spot to enjoy a cup of coffee.
Just Add Wine
Of course every comfy spot needs a place for a drink, but a swing can be tricky! We definitely don’t want your wine to be out of reach, so we designed this handy tray table so your porch swing has a sidecar. Your favorite cocktail will never get left behind, and there’s even enough room for a snack.
Make It a Destination
One of our favorite ways to decorate with porch swings is to make it a part of a larger seating group. Large daybed porch swings don’t get a lot of air, so you don’t have to worry that your swing will bump into your coffee table. Add a loveseat, some lounge chairs, and accent table to turn your swing into a destination spot.
We love how designer Phoebe Howard added a rope detail to the porch swing to give it that added touch. It adds charm and playfulness to an otherwise simple porch.
If you prefer to keep your feet on the ground, then our Sunday Daybed with Canopy is for you. Anchor yourself in an inviting oasis of comfort with the perfect amount of cooling shade. Now we’re ready to grab a magazine and a glass of iced tea for some R&R!
