Swinging above the ground is one of those rare feelings that’s just about as close to weightlessness as you can get without jumping in the water. From rocking chairs to hammocks, many inventions are designed for the sole purpose of leveling up on the relief that comes from taking a seat. If you have an outdoor space that you’re looking to claim or a corner of your living area that could use some cozying up, a swinging chair will get you where you want to go and keep you there for countless relaxing hours.
Here are some of our favorite swinging chairs currently available.
