Swings ~ For Adults Mostly
No. Not that kind of swinging. We’re talking about the most beautiful (and clever) porch swings ever designed. Actually, these are the first improvement in porch swings since they were first developed in Ancient Greece some 2400 years ago.
The Weather…Or Not™ Swings (WON) are designed by Becky Irvine who came up with the concept after she wondered whether the swing she wanted for her porch should face towards the wooded area where she might watch a delightful family of foxes, or back across the terrace to visit with family and friends. She wanted BOTH and that’s what the Weather…Or Not swings deliver with backs that pivot and lifts out so homeowners can enjoy the view -‐or face the other way to talk with friends. Or take a nap when the back is removed. And, the WON swing can also come with furniture legs to transform the WON into a bench with all the features of the swing, except for the swinging.
Besides being so cleverly convertible, the WON swings are also beautifully handmade in Kentucky by furniture carpenters and woodworking artist who hand-carve the backs. Solid mahogany is used which makes the swings suitable for either indoor or outdoor use.
As Duke Ellington says, “It don’t mean a thing if you ain’t got that swing“. I’m heartbroken that I don’t have a porch on which to install Becky’s beautiful swing at the moment, but I know that the requirements for my next home will be to have a spot dedicated to a Weather…Or Not Swing.
Each swing is made to order (and signed). Select from four furniture styles and five paint colors and hand-carved designs on the swing back. Prices start at $2,800 and Weather…Or Not swings can be ordered from PushBackTime.com.
