Swinging Chair

Would you consider bringing the playground into your dining room? The owners of our Batalha Apartment in Porto, Portugal did! And the result is this cool and contemporary dining set you have to see to believe! The table was made out of a piece of eucalyptus tree then attached to two metal tripods, then they added a picnic-looking bench and for the final touch… a swing!

We were interested in knowing where the idea came from so we asked the owner and this is what we found out:  “When we were designing the loft, we just thought it would be nice and surprising to have a swing as one of the chairs around the table. Both pieces where designed by me. The swing is made of solid wood in its natural state and a strong nautical rope that we latched onto the actual structural beam of the building. Our guests love the idea, they think it is fun and relaxing, and that is part of the atmosphere we wanted to create at the Apartment.”

We like finding unique pieces in our Vacation Rentals and love seeing the creativity our BoutiqueHomes’ owners (literally) bring to the table.
