Kyokusen is Japanese for “Curves in the air”. The Kyokusen Swing Seat is cut from natural curving English Oak, this seat follows the natural curves of the individual piece of timber, so you could say it’s ‘contoured for comfort’. A very special swing seat – comfortable to sit on, relaxing to recline on, beautiful to look at, and with the durability of oak it will last a lifetime.

The Kyokusen swing seat was awarded the John Makepeace Furniture Design Award in 2008 and is available with five different back designs: Heart Back, Curve Back, Fan Back, Slat Back and Swirl Back. This FSC oak garden swing seat is available as a 2, 3 or 4 seater.

Prices listed on this page don't include accessories (such as cushions, carvings, inscriptions, drinks shelves, embedded ammonites, different finishes and suspension springs) but they do include delivery within a 50 mile radius of Lyme Regis.
