Who we are
Beautiful hanging swing chairs and daybeds are the passion of Studio Stirling. Some of our most popular models are the Nest Egg, Bubble, Recliner and our stunning leather Sling chair which is a timeless classic that will turn heads and be the topic of conversation. An exciting new addition to the Sling range is the Vegan, Environmentally friendly and outdoor options.
Many of our swing seats are made from steel and are strong and durable. As each one 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. Most models can come with the option of legs or base stand. They are perfect outdoors, on any patio, porch, or garden space and looks great anywhere indoors. They are loved by adults, children and pets alike, creating the feeling of serenity and joy, many with their cocoon-like enveloping shapes.
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.
Studio Stirling has been recognised globally for their luxury, handmade swing seats, hammocks and loungers.
A variety of designs and cushion choices are available.
At Studio Stirling we constantly strive for perfection in all that we do, throughout the design, manufacture and marketing of our unique products.
We are deeply committed to treading as lightly as possible on the earth, and we expect the same from the suppliers of all our materials, which is why we search the world over to source the finest quality products available. We are especially proud of our new Vegan and Eco freindly Cactus Leather and Outdoor Sling chairs.
Another important aspect to us is that 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.
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.
