Who amongst us hasn't wished for a tree house and a porch swing at one time or another? The latter is altogether more achievable, but if your outdoor area isn't as peaceful as you'd like, you can swap a patio swing for a stylish indoor swing. The concept is not new and has been popular in places like Latin America and the Indian subcontinent for a long time.
Floating sofas can add playfulness to your domestic space. They're great for a morning cup of tea or coffee or a snooze just before dusk and can lift the mood in any room.
Indoor swings allow children to have some anti-gravity fun any time of day, not just when the outdoor park is open. They can also be a valuable sensory tool for self-soothing. When your kid is in a huff, encourage them to go to their room and calm down on the swing. W

Floating chairs are delightfully unexpected in western living rooms and add warmth to shared spaces, especially when dressed up with cute scatter cushions and throws. Imagine coming home at the end of the day and plopping down on a gently swaying indoor swing, beverage of choice in hand. Bliss!

Just look at that fluffy cushion. Such a soft, plush place to park your behind may prove irresistible. With bubblegum shades and organic materials, it's not hard to picture a whimsical indoor swing like this in a quiet beach house or cottage.
This seating option might even inspire you to start a knitting hobby to complete the happy picture.
You'll have a ball on this rattan-style woven indoor swing suspended on a steel frame. It's solid and cocoon-like, and you can easily curl up in its embrace when you're done preparing dinner or are preparing to phone a friend or family member.
