Modern Porch Swings: DIY Inspiration

Modern designers rarely reinvent the porch swing, so when we saw the beautifully clean-lined Wabi Lawn Swing by Francesco Rota for Paola Lenti, visions of mint juleps and warm summer nights danced in our heads.

But when pricing is available upon request, that can only mean one thing: over budget. Fortunately, we found some inspiration for porch swings that are pleasingly streamlined and seemingly simple.

See additional photos of the rustic barn porch swing designed by Rachel Halvorson on her blog Nest Egg. Or check out these instructions from Lowe's for Hanging a Daybed in a Sunroom.
