Nostalgic Porch Swings will last for many years to come. We use only premium Western Red Cedar, which is strong yet lightweight and is naturally resistant to decay. Our swings are offered in 7 finishes that enhance the natural beauty of Western Red Cedar. Nostolgic Porch Swings are delivered fully assembled and include ropes and stainless steel hardware for easy installation.
The seat depth is 28” providing optimum “sofa-style” comfort. The overall depth of the swing is 35”. Our porch swings are available in the following lengths to better fit your porch:
- 77 inches
- 72 inches
- 67 inches

Each Nostalgic Porch Swing includes an all-weather seat cushion that is individually crafted and matched to fit the swing's length. Optional back cushions are available for optimum comfort. Choose from one of our pre-selected Sunbrella fabrics or get creative with more than 90 standard and special collection Sunbrella fabrics (additional charges may apply). Customer's Own Material (COM) orders are available by request. The amount of fabric needed will be determined base on the fabric repeat and size of the swing ordered.
Natural 3/4” manilla ropes are provided with each swing in any length and are hand-braided around stainless steel hardware for a truly custom look. We also offer 'unmanilla" rope, an synthetic look-a-like in white, tan, dark brown, or black by special request only.
Care & Maintenace
The original color of all woods will gray out with time when placed in outdoor environments and exposed to ultra violet rays (UV). This is a function of UV light bleaching the wood over time.
If you want to preserve the original stained color of our cedar porch swings, we recommend the simple application of Penofin Verde or Penofin Blue Label 1 x per season or as needed depending on the environment. Penofin contains a UV protector that will slow the color change process.

As painted wood ages naturally, you should expect to see some loss of sheen and some surface cracking.
Our painted finish delivers exceptional long-lasting resistance to blistering, peeling, dirt pickup, chalking, mildew and color fade. Eventually, you may need to repaint using a high quality Satin Exterior Acrylic Latex paint following manufacturer's instructions.
Wood is a natural material subject to changes in the environment. The look and feel of natural wood is part of the appeal of owning wood outdoor furniture. Although cedar is naturally stable, small imperfections in the wood surface may appear if the furniture is placed in dry or sunny environments. But even as nature matures your furniture, the wood and the product will remain structurally sound for years to come.
Built to Last...
Nostalgic porch swings can be left outside under roof all year long — However, during extended periods when the swing is not in use it is advisable to use a breathable outdoor furniture cover to protect your swing from the elements and extend the life of the finish. With a little care and maintenance your porch swing can remain beautiful and functional for generations to come.
