These 19 Peaceful Porch Swings Will Inspire You to Sit a Spell
They host girlfriends on late summer nights and neighbors on a sunny afternoon, quite moments alone in the mornings and family time when the sun starts to fade. They offer shelter from the elements–rain, shine, and anything else life throws at you–and invite peace into our busy lives. There are many reasons the porch is a favorite place among Southerners, but above all is its ability to transform from a place of respite to the ultimate spot to entertain in a snap.
No single patio piece does that better than a porch swing. Ideal for solo reads, chatty coffee dates, or well-deserved afternoon naps, a well-styled swing can make even the grandest of porches feel cozier. Layer them with outdoor cushions and pillows, and you just may find yourself perched on the porch admiring your hydrangeas all summer long.
