It’s been 85 years since jazz legend Duke Ellington first proclaimed that “it don’t mean a thing if it ain’t got that swing” – and today, with the introduction of our newest beautiful porch swings, those words ring truer than ever at La Lune Collection.
To understand the indisputable attraction of the porch swing, we look to the history of the porch itself. Although evidence of the front porch can be traced to prehistoric times, it didn’t appear in the Americas until early in the 18th century – and even then not in large numbers. It would be another hundred years, in fact, before their popularity was widespread. By the Victorian era, porches were standard features on houses due to the increased availability of leisure time in the nation. A virtual outside family room, the porch encouraged a sense of community with neighbors, a place to stop and exchange the news of the day. And, the centerpiece of this “mixing and mingling” was – and still is – the beloved porch swing.
Today we are still charmed by the porch swing, which has worked its way so deeply into the fabric of our culture that it’s hard to find anyone who doesn’t own one, or aspire to own one – and a beautiful handcrafted porch swing from La Lune Collection makes this aspiration almost irresistible. So, it is with great excitement that we present La Lune Collection’s newest porch swings – take a look, and be sure to check out the entire selection!
A striking pattern of angled branches creates the outstanding design feature on this delightful Porch Swing, shown here in Kahlua (peeled bark) finish.
La Lune Collection’s fine wood craftsmen have meticulously created hand-notched designs on this Porch Swing, using the same simple tools and techniques employed by furniture makers for several centuries.
A beautifully unique addition to your front porch – or even an indoor room, just for fun – graceful and organic lines of nature are the design trademarks of this Porch Swing.
As if our new porch swing introductions weren’t excitement enough, we’re also pleased to announce that we’ve added hanging daybeds to our line – we think you’ll agree that these two new additions are truly charming!
A Hanging Daybed is wonderfully relaxing – whether used inside or outside your home – this beauty, shown in Desert finish on bark, features as its outstanding design element a striking pattern of angled branches.
