Swings are in many ways icons of childhood. Outdoor designers are changing that by offering very high end options for grown ups. Every home should have one as I find it hard to imagine any tough conversation not being made easy by gentle swaying movement… Ideal for any one of those “Honey we need to talk…” moments!

Austrian outdoor designers Viteo are known to have just a short collection of designs that are all very desirable. This applies to their swing, which exists as part of a whole set.

Another leader in the outdoor market, Gandia Blasco, offers a sheltered variation of the swing bench. It is super sleek as always and available in a variety of colors as white sometimes feels a little odd in the less sunny locations.

Fatboy has a taken the subject and decided to make hammocks! As with all Fatboy products, the color range is huge and the quality is top notch.
