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

We are delighted with our new swing

We are delighted with our new swing seat and thoroughly recommend Sitting Spiritually. From our first enquiry to post delivery the service has been excellent and our seat has been skilfully crafted to our specifications. Special thanks to Martin and Alex. We can't wait for drier weather when we can go outside and enjoy it.

I’ve always loved the Sitting Spiritually seats

I’ve always loved the Sitting Spiritually seats, and longed to have my own. I was able to purchase a pre-loved model which had previously found its home at RHS Harlow Carr. It fits perfectly in our garden and offers us the sunshine spot we had always wanted. The seat is incredibly comfortable, even without cushions, and is beautifully crafted and a pleasure to look at. Martin was very helpful on the occasion we met him at his workshop and the company was a pleasure to deal with. They offer a friendly and personal service, and I couldn’t recommend them more highly.

I recently purchased a swing for my daughter. I am delighted with the quality and craftsmanship and my daughter goes and sits on it every night when she gets back from school until her mother calls her in for dinner.

Beautifully crafted

Sitting Spiritually craft swing seats that are real objects of beauty. Having long hoped for one, my opportunity finally came and I was able to see my bespoke design as I created it on the company’s very user-friendly website. They have also placed a lot of info on YouTube about the company, its ethos and its methods. Having taken the leap, I was looked after and kept informed at each stage of my own swing seat’s making so that when it arrived, it became a day to remember. I am thrilled with the result and feel that equal time and care was put into me and my purchase as into the seat itself.

About Western Red Cedar

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. 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.
