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 Yakisugi Swing Seat range has become the signature piece of our classic contemporary garden furniture range. The clean, angular theme paired with the stunning scorched oak makes for a truly unique swing seat.

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.
