carved oak rope swing

Speaking of warmer weather, is anything more summery than a rope swing? Amy and I have been dying to set up a swing (to join our library ladder of joy) in the office, so this guy could jump to the top of my office wishlist. Dzierlenga F+U created this swing exclusively for Kaufmann Mercantile using reclaimed oak from ship linings. Just looking at this makes me long for a lake house and a few days off. Until then, I’ll keep an eye on this online. xo, grace

  1. Looks like a fun project – now, we need to see a photo of your office swing that inspired this! :)

    This similar swing from Peg + Awl has us drooling and searching for the perfect tree to tie it to. But an office swing is a MUCH better idea!

    Beautiful indeed! Love that wood. I remember my dad making us one just like that for our back yard, and I enjoyed half my lifetime on that swing. Thanks for bringing up those lovely memories!
