Chains are not the only option. Checkout to see how bed swings hang from rope. It is attractive and very outdoors feeling.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Kathryn added this to Magnificent Porch Swings!
A porch swing that affords you a lovely view is always the best way to go. This one has a great classic design that complements the vertical lines of the fence around the porch. I also love the way that the horizontal lines of the roof and deck contrast with this. Everything about it is gorgeous.
7. Outdoors. Even on a chilly day, bundling up to read outside can be a refreshing change. Carry your book out to the porch, deck or patio, along with a thick blanket and a hot drink if there's a nip in the air. A swing or rocker can be meditative, but make sure to pull over a little stool or table to set your drink on.Genre pick: A biography or memoir of triumph over adversity. There is something about reading the story of another person's struggles while sitting outdoors in the bracing air that makes one very thankful for life.
