Swing Swung Low: 10 Perfect Porch Swings

Few things in life are as sublime as slowly sipping on a favorite beverage, watching the sun set on a warm summer evening while slowly swinging back and forth on a wraparound porch.  Even for those of us without the last element of that lovely little illustration, there are options that still allow us to enjoy the simple pleasure of a porch swing, sans porch.  That’s why we’ve rounded up ten perfect porch swings to inspire you no matter where you live; many models are self-hanging and simply require a patch of grass, while other alternatives, like the sky chair, can even be hung from an interior ceiling.  Any way you slice it, a little suspension can yield a lot of stress reduction; the next time someone asks you what you’re doing over the weekend, you can simply say, “Oh, just hanging out” and mean it.
