Serenity in Western Red Cedar

Swing Bench in Cedar
2 Seater Fan Back & Frame. Seat and Frame £1,899 + VAT (£2,279) or Seat Only £1,499 + Vat (£1,739)

Serenity Garden Swing Seat made using Western Red Cedar, highly durable and rot proof. This swing is available with any of our five back designs and as a two, three or four seater.

The incredibly durable nature of Western Red Cedar makes it ideal for outdoor garden furniture. Being a very stable wood and full of natural oils means it is protected against decay even without regular treatment. Sourced from local FSC managed woodland the warm reddish apricot colour of the timber gradually weathers to pewter grey. Like all Sitting Spiritually's garden furniture it can also be left outside all year round.

Western Red Cedar (Thuja plicata) is lightweight softwood of the Cypress family, normally imported from northwestern America and Canada. It is renowned for its natural durability. It is grown in Britain as a plantation crop where it grows fast and is of appropriate size for harvesting after about 50 years. The wood mellows to a pewter grey after about one year of exposure to the elements and looks well alongside many other buildings and makes an excellent back drop for plants.

As with all our ranges we can supply the Serenity as a seat only option to hang from a tree bough, porch or existing pergola.

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. Delivery outside this area is available at a small cost.
