PEACEFUL PORCH

BY CHRISTEN HONG

A PORCH SWING IS THE PERFECT ACCESSORY FOR RELAXING OUTDOORS. The front porch has always been a popular hangout spot for any farmhouse because it serves as a transitional leisure space between indoors and outside. Especially during the summer, farmers and their families sat on the front porch after dinner to escape the heat that had built up inside, and the porch served as a space where they could visit with neighbors after the labor of the day. Today, the porch swing serves as both a space for leisure, and a charming accent visible from the road.
