Swinging in the Office

Duffy of London has designed office chairs that serve as swings for businesses that believe swinging chairs for employees just may benefit the business itself. Apparently, employees who sit in the swinging office chairs smile a lot more, assume a more relaxed posture, and talk more freely when sitting in a chair that swings a bit. I wonder if any businesses have purchased a King Arthur, Round Swing Table? I would like to have a King Arthur, Round Swing Table in my house because I find swinging on a swing very relaxing.

I love to swing, I wouldn't mind having a simple rocking chair with a lap desk attached to it. I would not leave the swing for hours.

@Corbin5 I would not mind having a swing again. We used to have one of those bench swings but we got rid of it a few years ago. I would spend hours in one just reading a book an enjoying nature.

@crazyhorseladycx What a wonderful workplace your daughter and fellow employees get to enjoy. Our son, with an MBA in finance/marketing, landed a higher-paying job with SAP SE. in Chicago. It is a German multinational software corporation that makes enterprise software to manage business operations and customer relations. He started there last week and was in awe of all that is offered to employees. He told me, "I want to live there." He said it is the most beautiful place he has ever worked, the free food is fabulous, the gym is wonderful, and the rooftop relaxation area is incredible. What fun you and I would have with the pups just enjoying the days together!! Our little bit of heaven it would be.

I bet some employees would have to sit in a regular chair due to getting dizzy on a swing.

Our son says his company has meeting rooms that have swings suspended from the ceilings. I suppose it is a trend now.

Yes, it seems that the swings make folks feel more at ease and happier. Easy vacuuming due to no chairs having to be moved.

At first, there would be a lot of experimenting with those swings. After a while, I suppose folks would settle down after the novelty wore off.

I am so glad you have a swing chair on your porch. My porch is too small to accommodate a swing.

@Corbin5 I love it so much. I saw it at the store and had to get it. One of the guys brought it to me. So nice of him. I like that store very much. They have some really cool things there. I got a stool that is perfect too there.

I believe all swords are left at the door just in case a heated discussion occurs.

What a mind-blowing environment has been created by those swinging chairs! The pleasure of sitting on such chairs is inexplicable. I would love to buy a swinging chair in the near future. For a moment or two, sitting on a swinging chair would feel like taking a comprehensive tour of the paradise.
