Imagine walking into a gallery and the first thing you see is an entrance hall full of swings. Well, that’s exactly what guests of Paris’ Maison et Objet walked in to see and that’s when we knew we were ahead of the trend. Interior swings are something we have been pitching to clients for a few years now but people didn’t see the appeal. We can guarantee an interior swing is just what you are looking for!
Are you looking to add a little relaxation to your home but you’re not sure what you want? Or maybe you aren’t sure if you have enough room? Why should you consider an indoor swing? “Hanging a swing indoors brings playfulness and a sense of joy to a room,” suggests Allison Bloom, San Francisco-based designer of Dehn Bloom Design. “Swings are emblematic of a rising design vibe that’s more bohemian, imaginative, layered, and open.” This growing trend is loved by introverts and extroverts alike. With some loving the isolation and other’s loving that it stimulates a social environment. This trend is a major rulebreaker when it comes to design but that’s one of the main reasons we love it.
A swing invites creativity to any space and begs for attention—just try to walk past one without stopping, sitting, and chilling out for a few minutes. Plus, it’s the ultimate icebreaker a swing encourages guests to engage with the room and each other. Swings also work well in the office as an easy stress relief tool. You can take a break or continue your work while gently swinging back and forth.
As a trend swings have a lot of potential because they can be paired with any type of decor. A simple wood base and a rope is the perfect match for any minimalist or if you have a boho-inspired room add a wicker basket swing for a cozy reading corner.
Daily stresses can wear out your body and mind. That’s why it’s all the more important to create a calming environment in your home. Of course, there are several types of relaxation leading to recovery. But the method we are most fond of is a swing. Swinging calms, soothes, and brings your stress levels down. The wonderful sensation of floating makes it no surprise that everything else seems unimportant. The beneficial effect of swinging has always inspired people, so why not give it a try? Gentle swinging calms body and mind from one moment to the next. Add one to your office or room and begin your journey to internal bliss.
