Dining rooms and conference rooms alike just got a cool new makeover, because who needs chairs when you can swing? An Etsy shop based in Bronx, NY called SwingTables is rethinking the way we sit and interact with others by surrounding tables with swings instead of chairs, which is somehow hip, practical, and nostalgic all in one. Genius, right?
Made from a rectangular stainless steel frame and featuring six walnut-topped swings around a walnut-topped table, this particular swing table also features a cute little planter box in the center. Each swing seat can hold up to 350 pounds, and the whole thing measures 82 inches long, 84 inches tall, and 48 inches wide (though of course, you'll need some clearance for swinging, too.)
The tables are made to order, ship in three to five weeks, and are shipped via white glove delivery or freight shipment. And all you need to make this swing table come to life in your home (or office, or yard) is another person to help you, a drill with a Phillips bit, and an hour of your time.
Oh, and of course this swing table isn't the only one SwingTables has to offer. If you don't need to seat six people but would prefer a two or four-person option, they've got you covered. Wish your swing seats had backs to make them more comfortable? They can make that happen too. And you can even get them in different colors, like pink, yellow, and green. You can shop some of their other swing tables below, or contact them for more info.
