As with all my work, I prefer simple elegance with a strong feel. This porch swing is designed with long, understated curves, wider back slats, and a thick, confident frame. The seat is curved and wider than standard making a more comfortable, relaxed seating posture. Made of solid cherry hardwood and coated in a strong exterior varnish allows this porch swing to stand up to the harshest weather conditions. Using chain for hanging can often be cold, noisy, less appealing, and even pinch you. So I instead use a strong, fisherman's rope with appeals warmer and functions softer.
Review from a "Mom in Cincinnati"
When my family moved into a new home, I searched high and low for the perfect swing to be the focus of our front porch-everyone's favorite gathering place. My search ended with the cherry porch swing from Old North Designs. I was a bit hesitant about the price initially, but I took the risk and purchased it. Worth every penny!!! This is not a mass produced swing from a big box store. This swing is a substantial, heavy-duty, gleaming, unique piece of heirloom furniture that we will have forever. The wood is absolutely gorgeous and finished to perfection. A true statement piece for our front porch, inviting everyone to relax and slow down for awhile...something we could all do more of! It has clearly been lovingly handcrafted the "Old School" way-the way you WISH everything were still made!
I am 110% thrilled with my purchase of this swing.
