Bespoke Wooden Swing Seats For The Garden

The Sitting Spiritually wooden garden swing seat that started it all

Martin Young started Sitting Spiritually back in 2004. Having invested the time and effort to build the garden he had always wanted (read our blog about the Sitting Spiritually garden) Martin set about trying to buy one of the evocative solid wooden swing seats he had often seen in American films. However after months of research he was unable to find anywhere to buy his perfect seat and eventually Martin came to the realisation that the only way to get his dream swing seat was to source the wood and build it.

Since then Sitting Spiritually has grown to become the only garden swing manufacturer licensed by the Royal Horticultural Society. We hand craft highly desirable bespoke garden swing seats from oak, painted pine, Accoya and Cedar. Our garden swing seats and benches are available with five different back designs and in a variety of sizes. If you’re looking for something a little different we can even provide you with a garden swing seat to hang from a suitable tree or from a pergola. If you don’t have a suitable tree or space for a frame we even make a rocking swing seat just for you. Isn’t it time you were Sitting Spiritually?

Garden Furniture Design - Sitting Spiritually

Our Garden Furniture Design Process

Our seats, benches and swings have been ergonomically designed and tested to ensure you always get the best seating position. The fixings we use allow the swing chair to subtly adjust as it rocks, maintaining balance and comfort however long you choose to be seated there. After all, to be Sitting Spiritually you must be sitting comfortably.

Many of our designs are influenced by the sea and countryside around the Dorset Coast where we live. Using these influences we start to add carvings, or perhaps inlay ammonites from the Jurassic Coast, of for a real personal touch we can add wording to each commission. We carefully select each piece of timber to ensure the colour, wood grain and finished shape all work in harmony.

Our daughter Lucy is also closely involved with the initial garden furniture design designs. A successful and in-demand artist in her own right, Lucy can interpret client's personal ideas and incorporate these into something that is truly special to them. 

We have our five swing seat ranges to choose from, so once you have decided which best suits you, you'll then need to decide which timber you would prefer; the natural finish of sturdy FSC Oak or the warm, durable Western Red Cedar. Or maybe you would prefer to choose preservative treated pine and have it painted to your own specific colour. We have one seater, two seater, three seaters and four seater swing seats available giving you a wide range to meet your needs. 

Please feel free to call me directly to discuss your design requirements on 01297 443084.
