The pleasures of an old-fashioned, simple porch swing never change, but modern versions up the ante in many ways. Materials include weather-resistant woods, polymers and wickers, as well as vibrant sun-resistant fabrics. Styles range from deluxe, pillow-laden swing beds to nautically inspired minimalist canvas constructions to clean-lined benches with handcrafted details. Update your porch or pavilion with one of these beauties that matches your personal aesthetic, and enjoy the dog days of August from the comfort of your own shade-filled oasis.
