Making a Gathering Place Outside
Now is the perfect time to spend more time outdoors with your family and friends. We need vitamin D to live healthy lives, and there is no better source for that than sunshine. Consider your property and whether or not it facilitates outdoor gatherings. Could you add a porch, patio, or deck? Could you upgrade your current outdoor living area?
Bed Swing or Porch Swing? That is the Question.
With so many beautiful and practical options available, one of the questions we get asked most often is how a bed swing differs from a porch swing. We offer both at Nested Porch Swings, and we recognize there are significant and important differences between bed swings and porch swings.

I am a huge believer in the health benefits of starting the day with a moment of calm and meditation, and I also believe in the natural beauty and healing powers that come from spending time outdoors.

Have you ever wondered why some pieces of furniture are more memorable than others? For instance, when I think of my childhood, I don’t recall much about our couch or dining room set, but I have many fond memories of my brother and I jumping on our bunkbeds or sitting like book ends on either side of my Dad in his favorite recliner. But my most fond furniture related memories involve summer evenings eating smores and telling knock-knock jokes while sitting on my Aunt Hazel’s porch swing.
If you can’t sit on the porch in a swing, with a gentle breeze kissing your face as you soak in the sights, sounds, and smells of an Autumn afternoon… then truly, what is the point of sitting at all?
I feel all the feels when it comes to relaxing, to summer fading into Fall, and definitely when it comes to my porch swing. I know I’m not alone in my love and passion for elevated, swinging outdoor (and indoor!) furniture, so I’ve decided to share our story of how it all began.
