Before central air and all manner of electric fans, the porch swing was the way to cool off in Texas. A refuge for the hot and bothered, not to mention a romantic spot for those who wished to “pitch woo,” the front porch swing became the spot to seek respite from the hot Texas sun and stay out of the stuffiness that could be found indoors. It was also considered a great spot for visiting and sipping a cool glass of sweet tea, not to mention storytelling!

Although the porch has continued to be synonymous with a southern way of life, the porch swing has taken on a brand new persona – that of the luxurious swing bed. Roomier and generally loaded with the types of cushions and fabric that are aesthetically pleasing yet easy to clean, these are some Texas-sized statement pieces that combine the peacefulness of the porch swing with the comfort of a couch. Here are a few to get you thinking about your own personal swing bed style.
