Latest Furniture From Designer Brain Boggs
Brian Boggs Chairmakers is thrilled to present the Sunniva Outdoor Swing, the most luxurious outdoor porch swing made in America. Handcrafted from gorgeous and sustainably managed Honduran mahogany, as seen on luxury yachts, this opulent outdoor swing is inspired by the flowing curves of Asian timber frame architecture.
Winner of the A’Design Award and Competition, the world’s most prestigious and influential design accolade, the Sunniva Outdoor Swing brings sophisticated comfort to outdoor spaces. When attached to its optional cantilevered stand, the swing sways on silent bushings to allow for uninterrupted contemplation.
Premium wood selection and precision micro-compression joinery contribute to the weatherproofing of this functional masterpiece of garden architecture. The Sunniva Outdoor Swing and Stand are priced at $7,300 and $12,100 with the stand.

For this design, Brian Boggs reinterpreted the traditional porch swing as a piece of art that would be inviting and comfortable. He created a swing that recalls natural elements, such as the subtle flexibility and unobstructed support of tree branches. Identifying how straight lines and angles can make a porch swing feel artificial and static, Boggs designed the Sunniva Outdoor Swing to suggest movement and organic comfort in its structure.
“While implying a sense of movement, the curvature of the Sunniva Outdoor Swing provides lumbar support and an unobstructed view through the absence of ropes or chains for support,” said Brian Boggs. “The cantilevered stand is engineered to be flexible and silent in operation and easily moved. The arch of the swing and stand adds a bounce for comfort, phenomenal strength, and beauty. The joinery is fully housed double tenons that prevent moisture from penetrating and compromising integrity of the construction.”
The durable Honduran mahogany wood used to make the Sunniva Collection comes from a trio of sawyers’ cooperatives that sustainably manage the rainforest near their small community of Copen. The purchase of wood is critical to the success of Greenwood, a nonprofit organization Boggs helped found in 1993, that works with remote forest communities to help them manage their forests and create valuable wood products.
“The Sunniva Outdoor Chair is a modern spin on an American tradition,” said co-founder of Brian Boggs Chair makers, Melanie Boggs. “This is a sophisticated element of comfort for a cherished front porch that blends classic techniques with a global sense of design and awareness.”
