My Home: My Swing

February 02, 2011

swing + indoors = good good therapy
(and only slightly less provocative than Pamela Lee's trapeze.)

Funk-ified my office
this winter with a $16
Ekorre swing,
received a swing for Christmas,
and may commission a custom two-seater
from husband which would make it a collection!

Here's the view from swing
(cowhide from Ikea and i actually
assembled the glass table myself!).

More charming swing-ibilities:

Bewitching swing that sparked my obsession
in Gwyneth Paltrow's Tribeca home.

Interesting in such a moody space.

What the h? How bout a slide?

Architect Alex Michaelis became the coolest dad on the planet with this baby.

Shall we now obsess about crazyfun stairs?

very spinal column-y

geometric drama, mama.

Bet they make guests sign a waiver.


i hate it when i have too much storage

How will you inject fun into your haven?

Peace to you right where you are.

  1. Michele - you are fun!!

    I have been wanting to put in a swing in William's room but I am not sure we have ceilings strong enough and I assume it needs to be attached to some beam. Right?

    Warm hugs to you.


  2. I'm loving the swing in your office! I totally want one now. What a cool idea and what a cool space :)

    (I so would not get any work done though... Hmm.)

  3. LOOOOVE your swing!! How fun! This post is so great, so many fun spaces. Love the swings with the stairs, kids would be the envy of all their friends! Idea bookmarked for future when I have a grown-up house and kids :)

  5. confession: it IS hard to get work done with the swing.

    but it breaks up the monotony.

    i'm taking all those names under advisement, Meera! thank you and keep em comin.


  6. A swing... your office always comes to my mind, you know? It's weird.. but I think I have a crush on your swing! lol

    I love swings since I was a kid... nothing could make me happier. I never thought of having one inside of my house (of course you're more creative than I am!) and I just love your idea. Actually I everything in your office.

    Cowhide name? Mooooo? lol Really? Maybe not... hide the cow? nooo.. humm.. "Horton"? Yes, I do read Dr. Seuss at least 2x a day to my kids! :-)

    HORTON is now under consideration. never met a swing i didn't like! true!

  8. What a fun idea to have a swing in the house! I bet it's a real stress-reliever. I have the old swing from my grandparents house, and perhaps I can convince my husband to install it somewhere in our home!
