Outdoor swing beds are all the rage. Like, who wouldn’t want to be able to spread out on a thick cushion under a warm summer breeze and gently swing away while you doze off or read a book. That’s the definition of dreamy. Patio season is officially upon us, so you know what that means… it’s time to pull out the patio cooler, pour your favorite cocktail, and cozy on up in a swinging daybed (and sit the baby bouncer nearby to keep an eye on the little one, of course). And while you’re brainstorming ideas on how to make your backyard space your very own oasis, you can also check out some hammocks.
If you’re looking for a little slice of paradise in your own backyard, adding an outdoor swing bed to your patio will make you feel like you’re always on vacation. We found a variety of swings to design your space with, including full beds, ones with mosquito nets and canopies, and even some hanging chairs if you’re tight on space!
