This is a review of the Aspen Tree Interiors Hanging Fanback Porch Swing. This is a roomy porch swing that you can lounge on while reading a book or enjoying a cool summer breeze and a glass of wine. It’s a comfortable porch swing that’s sturdy and comes in a variety of colors to fit in with any type of décor you have on your patio, porch, or in the backyard. Personally, we’re a fan of bright, bold colors, but you can choose the one that suits you best.
Pros of the Hanging Fanback Porch Swing
- Made in the USA
- Knot-free yellow pine
- Can hold several adults
- Durable construction
- Hanging hardware included
Cons of the Swinging Day Bed
- Curbside delivery only
We’ve reviewed quite a few porch swings, but this is one of our favorites. The back of the swing is an unusual shape, so you could easily leave the back unadorned with pillows to highlight that design element. It’s a wide 6-foot day bed that can take a thick cushion. This will turn it into a relaxing bed instead of just a swing to sit on while enjoying the outdoors. You could even use this as a place for your toddler to nap while you soak in the peace and quiet of nature.
With the wide expanse of seating available in this porch swing, you’ll be able to fully snuggle with your loved one. When looking at this swing, it just begs for a fuzzy blanket, a glass of wine, and the one you love. We recommend this swing for all of those reasons, but also because it’s constructed with care from Amish artisans who make things by hand.
Construction and Materials
The swing is constructed with knot-free yellow pine, which is a quality wood used in many projects that rely on sturdy wood to make them structurally sound. You don’t want to purchase a swing with substandard wood especially if you plan on letting your children climb and swing on it.
Amish-made furniture has some of the best quality in terms of manufactured products because they make everything by hand. They use strong hardware for construction, too. When you buy a piece of furniture like this daybed swing from artisans who handcraft each bit, you’re going to find that it lasts longer because it’s more durable.
Assembly and Tools
The swing will be delivered curbside, so you’ll need some help bringing it from the curb into the space where you’ll be assembling and hanging it. You should only need one other person to assemble it, but the product weighs 250 pounds. That might require more people to carry it.
It comes packed with the chains and hardware you’ll need to hang this from the place you’ve chosen. For tools, you’ll need a cordless drill as well as pliers and a screwdriver. Have all your tools and all the items laid out before you start assembling the swing.
Details We Love
Our favorite details of this swing are the style and shape of the back as well as how big the swing is. The fan back is unusual and really stands out as a design element.
The daybed aspect allows more people to sit on the swing and enjoy the relaxation of your backyard space. When you create an oasis in your backyard, that will include the color choices you make, too. You can go bright and bold or soft and calming. There are 9 colors from which to choose from light to bright.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can this be hung in the home?
This swing can be hung anywhere you like as long as the structure holding the chains is strong enough structurally to hold the weight. If you have a strong tree or a hanging structure, you could also install this in unusual locations like a covered gazebo.
What colors are available?
The swinging daybed comes in Chinese red, black, sunshine, lime, white, Aruba blue, evergreen, greige, and chocolate.

We absolutely adore this Aspen Tree Interiors Hanging Fanback Porch Swing. You can purchase a cushion as thick or as thin as you want. It’s a great place for naps on lazy summer days or cuddling up with a comfy blanket with your love. We’re huge fans of creating an oasis in the backyard, and you can’t go wrong with this swinging daybed. Even if you don’t have a porch to hang this from, you can enjoy this hanging inside a gazebo or pergola as long as it’s sturdy enough to hold the swing.
