Create a charming, secluded spot to relax, read or enjoy a warm summer evening with friends. Enhanced with a few cushions and with a close view of your favourite flowers, this garden adornment will become a real oasis.

Designed for gentle rocking, the seat is suspended from a pergola measuring 96" x 60" x 92". The pergola is framed by palisade panels which connect it to the fence, but it can also be integrated into other outdoor decor projects.

Cedar wood

Cedar is a naturally weather-resistant wood and so does not need to be specially treated or painted. But there’s nothing to prevent you from staining it to go with the decor – this will not detract from its beauty.
