When I was little, we would visit my grandparent’s house that had a spacious backyard. In the middle of a large city, it was luscious, green and full of nooks and crannies that us children would get lost in. One of my favorite spots was the swing area. We would spend hours on it! And, although it’s been years since I’ve been on a swing, swinging chairs are in and perfect for the kid in all of us! Here’s how to use them.

Note: The Interior Collective believes in putting safety first. Please make sure to use safety precautions when buying and installing a swing in your own home. We recommend using a swing that is approved for children and working with licensed design professionals to ensure that the swing is installed correctly.
