Beautifully crafted, super comfortable, AND Local! The Original Charleston Bedswing is my very favorite porch swing! I cannot say enough about these wonderful swings. 

Created 30 years ago by a local couple, Barbara & Preston Stone, these bedswings are crafted from furniture grade wood, either cypress or mahogany. The cushions are covered in Outdura high-quality outdoor fabric. They offer a wide selection of fabric colors to choose from so you can design your perfect bedswing. You can stop in at Sweet Olive in I'On in Mt. Pleasant to try out a bedswing for yourself!

Bedswings are perfect for porches - front, back,and screened. They also work well inside. I've seen bedswings included in sunrooms and playrooms and love this idea!  Imagine relaxing on your bedswing with a good book and a glass of wine enjoying the sea breeze. I actually have clients that have a sign up sheet for their bedswing when all of their family is in town.  Trust me, everyone in your family will love this bedswing!

Personally, I like to hang the bedswings in a spot that gets morning sun if possible.  A warm spot to soak up a bit of sunshine on a cold winter day but not too hot on a summer afternoon. A south facing porch tends to get more warming sun in the winter and is more shady in the summer often catching a breeze. This makes it an ideal spot for a bedswing. 

"The Original Charleston Bedswing® is all about relaxation. Porches, especially in the South, are the preferred venue for enjoying a cold glass of sweet tea, long talks with loved ones, reading a good book, and lazy afternoon naps. They act as the intermediary between the outside world and the intimate life of the home........Lean back in one and it becomes clear that every porch deserves an Original Charleston Bedswing®."   - Preston & Barbara Stone

I'm going to go now and curl up on my bedswing with my dog and watch the sun go down. Find your perfect porch swing and relax!
