Could you tell me who makes your shutters? They are very historically accurate if they aren't original.

The chairs are vintage, but we've seen reproductions in various catalogs. Just google "retro metal chair" or "50s patio chair"!

Lisa Higgins added this to Dream Spaces: Gracious, Spacious Front Porches
Looking for decorating ideas? This well-furnished porch has all the right pieces: an Original Charleston Bed Swing lined with comfy pillows, retro 1950s metal patio chairs, a chevron-patterned indoor-outdoor rug and lime-green garden seats.
Annie Thornton added this to 50 Beautiful Ways With Porch Swings
17. This soothing porch vignette includes vintage chairs painted in Quietude by Sherwin-Williams and a pillow-filled swing from Original Charleston Bedswing. The Devenco shutters are painted in Greenblack by Sherwin-Williams.
Victoria Villeneuve added this to Elements of the Classic Southern Porch
Daybed swings with a bright future. Daybed swings are giving other porch perches a run for their money these days, perhaps because they combine the swaying of rockers and the roominess of hammocks with the comfort of sofas. Their popularity has produced a cottage industry in the Charleston area, where manufacturers include Bulls Bay Bed, Carolina Hanging Beds, Lowcountry Swing Beds, Original Charleston Bedswing and Vintage Porch Swings.Swing: Original Charleston Bedswing; browse porch swingsReinvent It: A Houzzer Turns Thrifted Pieces Into a Swinging Daybed
Lauren Dunec Design added this to How to Hang a Porch Swing and Get Your Relaxation On
3. Measure and mark where you’ll hang your swing. Set the spots for the hanging hardware between 2 and 4 inches wider than the length of the swing. For example, space the hanging hardware 62 to 64 inches apart on the ceiling for a swing that is 60 inches wide. This prevents the chains or ropes from rubbing against the sides of the swing.Do a final check on your measurements for mounting the swing to the porch, lining up where the center of the swing would fall and marking ceiling joists. You can choose to have either four ceiling anchors or two, depending on your swing style and setup.

This one is $2000, so...yeah...however, putting this here as a placeholder so that we remember to add a porch swing after construction and painting. This one is from https://www.originalcharlestonbedswing.com, they make ones that are a fraction of this cost. Remind me to take measurements of the porch width the next time we are at the house.
