The Idler swing seat is the perfect antidote to today's frenzied and hurried lifestyle, truly enabling you to take it easy and while away whole afternoons doing as much or as little as you choose. It will transform your summers, literally enticing you to sit back in the garden and smell the roses in unequalled comfort and style.

"The Idler swing seat is: The Indoors - Outdoors"

Although the Idler swing seat is undeniably a luxury purchase, once possessed, it swiftly turns into a necessity and summer becomes unimaginable without it. It will become not just a 'fair weather' friend but a member of the family and an heirloom for the next generation.

What makes the Idler swing seat unique?

  • A true swinging garden sofa - as comfortable as any indoor furniture.
  • Handmade pocket sprung cushions with over 400 springs and no foam.
