Beautiful hanging swing chairs are the passion of Studio Stirling.
Studio Stirling has been recognised globally for their luxury, handmade swing seats, hammocks, loungers and daybeds and are proud to have won international awards. They can be found in spaces all over the world including the Singapore Airport, Google Head Office in Munich, T-Mobile offices in Washington, Hotels, Lodges and many discerning clients' homes.
Each one of our chairs is made by hand and it allows for each piece to have individualism and uniqueness in some of the pattern detailing due to the variance of craftsmanship. We support products that are created by hand, demonstrating the unique skill of the artisan, support one-of-a-kind pieces and variance in design due to the process of hand crafting. In a world of homogenized mass production, slower designed, handmade products require less energy than mass-produced items and often last longer, reducing the cycle of waste in our “throw-away” culture.
Our chairs are ideal for inside or outside use and look gorgeous on a deck, patio, hanging from a branch of a tree or anywhere indoors. These swing chairs and loungers are loved by adults, children and pets alike, creating the feeling of serenity and joy in their cocoon-like shape.
Their most popular swing chairs are their BUBBLE, NEST EGG, RECLINER and the stunning leather SLING chairs which are a timeless classic, that will turn heads and be the topic of conversation. Most models can come with the option of legs or base stand.
Studio Stirlings’ owner and designer Joanina has an award winning background in visual art, design and advertising but always had a passion for furniture - particularly hanging chairs. Joanina draws inspiration from nature and her surroundings - giving rise to Studio Stirlings’ iconic Twig Pattern which features as an option for most chairs, as well as the Jozi / Egoli design inspired by her hometown, the city of gold - Johannesburg, South Africa.
What is important to Joanina and her dedicated team is the combination of aesthetics, comfort and emotion. “I want to create something that’s functional, but also beautiful,” she says. “It works as an extremely comfortable, ergonomically designed chair, but I want to create an emotional response too. The physical experience of the chair, how it changes the way you feel when sitting in it; I want to create a sense of well-being.
