By taking some innocent childhood experience to the next level, Christopher Duffy of Duffy London created the Swing Table, a design we are certain you will find appealing. With enough seating for eight, the unusual table is perfect for informal gatherings and great times among friends. Here is a short description from the project developers: “Putting a little extra fun into dinner time and boardroom meetings, this four poster table uses its structure to suspend a central GEO lampshade and eight hanging chairs that sway playfully. This design creates an exceptionally divergent experience and aesthetic, creating a room within a room, with chairs that float around the table, it also makes vacuuming a breeze”. Even though there is probably not much individual space for swinging, the concept is awesome and the final product is definitely appealing. Have a look at the photos below and let us know if you would consider having this table in your home.
