The Best Modern Porch Swings

1. Poly Sofa Rope Swing

 

The Poly Sofa Rope Swing by Hershy Way is made of polyethylene plastic, making it a great material for outdoor furniture. Polyethylene plastic is resistant to moisture, fading, cracking, and insect infestations. Polyethylene is easy to maintain and doesn’t need to be sanded, stained, or repainted. Just pressure wash it to keep it clean and free from dirt and mildew.

There are three seats on this Poly Sofa Rope Swing, and it has a total weight capacity of 600 pounds. It includes stainless steel hardware that won’t rust or deteriorate outside.

A fixed rope and spring (7’6” length) and chain (5’ length) are included with the wooden porch swing. It can be hung on ceilings up to 12’ high. Porch ceiling hooks are required, and they should be installed 60” apart with a 6” tolerance. The back wall clearance should be 42” if there is a wall or object behind this classic porch swing.

The outdoor swing dimensions are 79"W x 36"D x 28.5"H.

A swing bed is a larger modern porch swing that gives you enough room to lie on your back comfortably. It’s made of western red cedar, so you don’t have to worry about it cracking, splintering, or becoming infested with insects as it hangs on your porch.

You can choose to have the swing bed stained or painted in one of the many stains and paint color options. Two heavy-duty hanging chains are included with the swing bed so that you can easily hang it on your front porch.

The design of this swing bed has a straight back with not much design. This gives the Traditional English Red Cedar Swing Bed a modern feel.

You can hang this modern porch swing bed with the two included heavy-duty hanging chains, or you can use ropes to hang the swing. It comes in a 4-foot, 5-foot, 6-foot, and 75-inch option for you to choose the exact size you need.
