Such a caring business. Thank you so much!

My parents are absolutely thrilled with their Tranquility oak swing seat (fan back), bought for them as a present for their Golden Wedding Anniversary. The quality is exceptional and they can't believe how comfortable it is - they would definitely recommend the suspension springs. The service was first rate - the bench was completed to tight timelines to be ready for the anniversary and the assembly was completed in their garden with great care, friendliness and professionalism. We even had a text beforehand to say delivery was running a little late due to traffic issues that day. We couldn't have asked for more. At a time when the other anniversary celebrations had to be cancelled, this really made their big day. Such a caring business. Thank you so much!

Can't wait for spring and summer!

We are both very pleased with our new oak swing seat from Sitting Spiritually. We have positioned it under a tree to create perfect shade in a south-facing garden. Can't wait for spring and summer!

So many beautiful products to choose from...

This was the first site I visited when looking for something special for our Secret Garden. There was no need to look at any other site - so many beautiful products to choose from. Sitting Spiritually were a joy to work with from initial contact to delivery. They even send you a photo of your commission in the workshop so you can keep in touch with progress. The lead times are surprisingly short for such craftsmanship and the delivery service was faultless. The seat has already brought us so much joy!

About the Tranquillity Range

The Tranquillity was originally influenced by the need for a choice of back and arm styles and to harness comfort within a classical design. We use Kiln dried FSC prime grade Oak grown in France; it’s slower grown and therefore harder and more durable than Southern European and UK Oak. When you first take delivery of a Tranquillity the wood is a warm golden colour that over time weathers to a soft silver. It requires no further treatment.

Each swing seat is truly one-of-a-kind. The Tranquillity is made from seasoned oak with bags of character—the wood begins life radiating a warm golden colour that over time weathers to a soft silver. A stunning visual feast that will add personality and style to your garden.

Swing Seat Dimensions and Footprint

The Affinity, Tranquillity & Serenity Range all share the same footprint in the various seat styles available. The below images are of one particular back style and are used to demonstrate footprint size rather than finished appearance.

Due to the handcrafted nature of our products the final footprint can vary slightly from seat to seat, measurements provided are for the largest expected dimensions. If you are intending to set a slab under each leg we suggest not doing so until you have taken delivery.

"The balance is perfect, a gentle push and the seat continues to swing for several minutes"

Dear Martin, Just a short note to say thank you for producing such a wonderful seat. My wife was delighted with it. There is no doubt that the Pimms tastes better when sipped gently swinging on a beautiful oak seat. We were really impressed with the way you made the seat in such a way that the balance is absolutely perfect, a gentle push and the seat continues to swing for several minutes. Family and friends have all been very impressed with the seat and we look forward to enjoying many hours "Sitting Spiritually" over the coming years. Thank you for making the perfect seat.
