Ah! Swings. A concept revisited from olden homes, and yet not at all old. Swings these days provide homemakers with an additional option as far as seating is concerned. A swing, either in sync with your décor (traditional) or completely in contrast (bohemian), is a welcome addition in your living space. Let us take a look at the kind of swings that will enhance the décor of your home and take it to a whole other level.

1)    Traditional Jhoolas : These swings have been a part of a very old Indian heritage. Our ancestors, no matter which part of the country you come from, usually had one of these in their homes. Made out of priceless, timeless wood, these swings will last you for a lifetime with very little hassle of refurbishing. The upholstery options with this one will blow your mind and reunite the bits each and every time!

2)    Alternative Hammock Swings : If you think that hammocks are only fit for beachside cafes, resorts and farmhouses, you might be wrong. More and more people are employing hammocks or alternate looking hammocks in their art-deco style houses to go with their offbeat décor. Who knows, get creative and place your whitey-white hammock in contrast to a brightly wallpapered, textured or decal wall and get the effect you have always desired.

3)    Pearl-dropped Swing : The trend in vogue this year is a pearl-dropped swing. These are pretty mobile and allow you to place them whenever, wherever you need them. If you like the idea of having ornamental plants in your home, placing these swings next to them is one of the perfect-est ideas that you can employ in your home décor strategy. Take them inside or outdoors, they’re always a treat to the eyes of the beholder.

4)    Repurposed Swings : Repurposing old furniture into a swing may be a great idea as far as both saving space and creating something new is concerned. You can break up and old bed or table and hammer it into a swing that you and your family will love. The beauty of making up your own furniture is that you can do whatever you want with them. Paint it up nice and quirky, even Elvis or The Beatles quirky. Let your creativity do the talking.

5)    Hanging Baskets : Cute and purposeful, hanging basket swings are perfect for every home situation. Whether you’re single, married or have a child, a hanging basket appeals to all. Let your family have some cozy time with this one. Stuff it with colorful pillows and enjoy the basket of joy!

A swing in your living area accentuates your style and gives you an additional hangout area. This is perfect if you have young adults at home, to account for the pensiveness and mood-swings, sometimes, for them to entertain their friends. Upholstery is an important element to consider when you’re making up a swing in your living area. Keep the upholstery neat and functional, in quirky colours, to make the swing stand out. Couple the design with your theme and you’re good to go! Do keep sharing your ideas with us.
