A Wicker Porch Swing

Always Refined, Reminiscent, And Romantic

A wicker porch swing gives your porch harmony; it matters not what other decor you may have. That makes wicker swings extremely versatile while adding immense charm to your home. Coupled with pillows and cushions, wicker swings quickly become your favorite furniture upon which to relax.



Porch swings are timeless. We have one on our porch and it's where the grandchildren gravitate when they come to visit. Just imagine one of these swings on your porch.

When it comes to capturing the nostalgia and comfort of a more traditional age, there's nothing like the gentle sway of a wicker porch swing on a summer eve.



Did You Know? Wicker is a method of weaving - not an actual material. It's thought to come from a word in Scandinavian called "vika" which means to bend.

Dave and I like the selection of wicker porch swings from Hayneedle. You can also find a generous selection on Amazon, too. In fact we were surprised to see the many styles they offer.

Types of Wicker Porch Swing Materials

There are basically three types of wicker swings. Each varies in quality and cost but all are uniquely beautiful.

  • Natural Wicker: Natural wicker swings are manufactured from several different vegetations like reed, palm vine, rattan, or certain grasses. Natural wicker is typically rough but can be painted to achieve a more smooth feel and is usually finished with stains, paints, and sealants. It can be left in its natural state without any additives.

    Protect natural wicker from the elements. Wind, rain, humidity, and snow can take its toll so cover it during inclement weather as it can warp.




  • Rattan Wicker: Rattan vine is the most common plant fiber for making wicker furniture and can grow to 500 feet in length. Rattan is one of the most dense woods available because its grain grows vertically instead of in rings like other hardwoods. Rattan is steamed and bent into the various shapes by very specialized machines.Rattan retains its shape indefinitely once it is dried.



  • Resin Or Synthetic Wicker: Synthetic wicker swings are made from resins (polyethylene) to look like rattan. Made into thin strips, it is woven to cover an aluminum swing frame. The color is integrated into the plastic so it resists fading.

    Because it is a synthetic, it is almost impervious to the weather. It usually comes in a variety of colors. Mary and I like resin wicker because it looks like real wicker but it will last longer, is easy to care for, and will not break or become brittle. In addition, its UV-inhibitors prevent fading.
