Swinging Love Seat

winging Love Seat-Design Crush

The house I’ll be moving into next month has a swing on the front porch and I really can’t even explain how happy that makes me. I’d love to eventually install a more designer model, perhaps this Swinging Love Seat. Inspired by the edginess and ingenuity of Southern California’s Hot Rod Culture during the 1950’s and 60’s, it’s all sleek curves and slim profile.
