How to Style Your Swing Bed

There’s nothing more relaxing on a warm spring evening than swaying on a porch swing with your favorite beverage and watching the sunset. Outdoor swing beds take the comfort of the porch swing and amplify it with ample room for cushions, pillows, and a deeper seat for even more relaxing.

Choosing Your Swing Bed


Swing beds are the perfect addition to a covered porch, a sunroom, or any space with a ceiling or suitable mounting point that will support the bed. Get creative and mount your swing bed from a well-established hardwood tree. 


For safety, you should have your tree inspected by a certified, professional arborist to be sure the tree can withstand the weight of the swing bed.


Swing beds come in a variety of options to work for many types of outdoor spaces. For a more traditional porch swing style, go with the Faulkner Porch Swing from One Kings Lane
