Sitting Spiritually had long been aware there was a gap in the market for a Contemporary Swing Seat, so now have a collaboration with Dorset based company Simon Thomas Pirie Contemporary Furniture, makers of beautiful furniture and public art work.

The clean, angular theme paired with the stunning scorched oak makes for a truly unique swing seat.

The swing seat is beautiful

The swing seat is beautiful, and really well made. Getting the suspension, and the drinks shelves, was a good idea! Customer service first rate too.

Yakisugi Origins

Using kiln dried FSC prime grade Oak, Yakisugi is a traditional Japanese method of wood preservation. Parts of the frame and seat are scorched using an ancient traditional Japanese method of wood preservation. The feel is made complete using stainless steel cables to hang the seat and allow it to swing beautifully without compromising ergonomics.
