Today, we’re taking a look at something similar to the rocker gliders we showed you a few days ago, except these are more traditional swing seats, and as you can see from the photos, they’re known as face to face swings, for obvious reasons.

We see these swings as being great places to have a relaxing chat with friends, to chill out after a stressful day at the office, to have a family picnic (if you don’t mind holding your plate in your hands), and, of course, for a couple to go for some alone time together.

And they’re suitable for any time of day – they’re perfect regardless of whether you’re one of those people, like us, who like to sit and watch the dawn, or you’re an end-of-day person, preferring dusk and sunset.

If you’d rather sit out in the afternoon, then all of the models shown on this page will shade you from the sun with some form of canopy, whether it’s solid or latticed; the latter will, of course, protect you from most of the sun’s rays while allowing a gentle breeze to blow through and cool you down.

The model we prefer, shown at the top of the page, is called the St. Anthony’s Face-To-Face Swing, and it’s made from mature redwood.

If you’d prefer a swing made from treated pine, then you might want to check out one of these three designs:

Treated Pine Dutchman Face-To-Face Swing Treated Pine Country Classic Face-To-Face Swing Treated Pine Old Homestead Face-To-Face Swing
Treated Pine Dutchman
Face To Face Swing
Treated Pine Country Classic
Face to Face Swing
Treated Pine Old Homestead
Face to Face Swing

If we had to pick one of these three pine models, we’d probably go for the Dutchman swing ourselves – it just looks a little more appealing to us than the others (but we still prefer the redwood St. Anthony’s swing).

In terms of installation, then the good news is that none of these swings require anchors, which means you can put them on any flat surface, whether that be your patio or your lawn.

One factor that may be important to you is the weight these swings will carry – the St. Anthony’s swing has a capacity of 700 lbs, whereas the three treated pine swings can carry 950 lbs.

While these face to face swings and the rocker gliders both let you sit facing each other, the swinging/rocking action is, of course, different – but in either design, it’s still very smooth.

The face-to-face swings, however, don’t come with the small table in the middle, which may or may not be important to you.

Either way, we think any of these items would be great fun – all you need is a nice cup of herbal tea as you sit there, watching the sun rise over the horizon (or maybe an ice tea if you’re a sunset type of person) as you gently swing to and fro. The only problem would be having the willpower to get up from the swing and go to work – unless you work from home, in which case that’s a whole other story.

    This is a very cool item and I see that it comes partially assembled. It appears that it wouldn’t be too difficult to put it together.

    What a marvelously romantic face to face swing! I can completely see sitting on one of these in your front or back yard, sipping an ice tea or lemonade to enjoy a cool breeze in the evening with the one you love… or the one you are courting!
