Imagine sun-dappled summer afternoons outside with friends and family, or quiet moments in fall, swinging peacefully with your coffee or hot chocolate. We did – we had our friends and clients in mind when we designed the Sunniva line to bring real luxury to the outdoors. Sunniva is a Gaelic word meaning “gift from the sun”, echoing the warmth and radiance of each piece in the collection.
This is one of the most comfortable, buoyant porch swings you will ever sit in.
Construction is optimized for longevity and all-weather performance. There are very few pieces of hardware involved; nothing can become loose or get weak. Pieces come together in rock-solid joinery that is fully housed, meaning there is no way for moisture to enter the joints and compromise strength. Once assembled, the furniture is coated with either penetrating oil finish or boat paint in any color. Water rolls right off.
Each piece by Brian Boggs Chairmakers is built to an heirloom spec and rigorous standards developed by founder Brian Boggs and his 30+ years of artisanal chair-making experience. Furniture by Brian Boggs Chairmakers is intended to last for years and years to come.
The entire Sunniva collection is built from sustainably-sourced Honduran mahogany, an exceptionally performing wood long prized in furniture making and yacht building. We source this wood from GreenWood Global, a non-profit organization that Brian helped found over 20 years ago. GreenWood is a trio of sawyers' cooperatives that selectively hand-harvest massive trees in the Honduran rainforest. The lumber is sent to international companies - like us and Taylor Guitars - and also used by local craftspeople to make a variety of chairs and handcrafts.
If you’re as in love with this porch swing as we are, you won’t have any trouble finding more outdoor furniture that harmonizes with it. Complement the beauty of your Sunniva porch swing with matching cocktail tables, fine armchairs, the perfect outdoor rocking chair, or even seating for two in our Sunniva settee. The Sunniva outdoor collection marries the best of traditional construction with contemporary comfort and flair.
