why this product

A North Carolina wood craftsman designed this swing after a prototype by his great-grandfather. Along with the help of friends and business partners, he typically handmakes his swings according to unique commissions. For Kaufmann Mercantile, he chose to work with a walnut wood that is native to the Eastern United States and sisal rope made from agave fibers. He added armrests outfitted with four cup holders in total: the larger openings will fit a coffee mug while the smaller ones can hold a beer can or small bottle. With Kaufmann Mercantile customers in mind, these swings also have a slot that will fit your iPad, journal or book. 

use & care

Install the swing in a covered porch area or indoors, if possible. Condition the wood once a year with our Beeswax Wood Care & Finish. If the swing is placed outdoors and subjected to the elements, it may require more frequent conditioning. 

production & design

A former chef and an erstwhile urban farmer are the brains and brawn behind this furniture company. With the help of a wood craftsman, the two partners use native, salvaged lumber as a way to pay homage to their beloved North Carolina landscape. All their work is custom-made, and they try to get to know each customer to choose the right types of materials and design according to different tastes and personalities.
