The History of the Porch SwingHave 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.
For the Love of the 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.
