The WON is for special places ...where folks can enjoy the view, talk to friends, maybe take a nap. My hope is they’ll feel renewed when they get up to leave.
Louisville, KY (PRWEB) January 10, 2012
Push Back Time, LLC (PBT) has developed the Weather...Or Not™ (WON) swing which triples the relaxation of the traditional porch swing that dates back to Ancient Greece.
The WON has a back that pivots and lifts out so homeowners can enjoy the view--or face the other way to talk with friends--or nap on the bench with the back is removed. PBT has a patent pending on the design.
WON swings will be shown for the first time on Friday, January 13, at the International Gift & Home Furnishings Market in Atlanta and at the PBT booth (W-4-429).
WON swings can be purchased online at the PBT website, http://www.pushbacktime.com, and through stores and distributors that order the swings during the Gift & Home Furnishings Market. Prices start at $2,800
WON swings are solid mahogany and designed for the den as well as the porch or veranda--or both as the seasons change. Furniture legs can be added to transform the WON into a bench with all the features of the swing, except swinging back and forth.
Each WON is made to order. The buyer selects the back from four furniture styles, including two Chippendales. The backs are named after tunes composed by Duke Ellington, including “It Don’t Mean A Thing If It Ain’t Got That Swing.”
Other options include a wider swing base, Camelback top rail, five paint colors and hand-carved designs on the swing back.
Becky Irvine, the CEO of PBT, personally signs and numbers each WON before it is shipped. Ms. Irvine designed the WON after her son-in-law jokingly challenged her to come up with a swing that would let someone look out onto the backyard as well as across the porch.
Push Back Time, LLC, headquartered in Louisville, Kentucky, also markets pillows painted by Becky Irvine, using water-resistant paints and fabrics so they suitable for inside the home as well as outdoors. Many pillows, such as a three-pillow dachshund, complement the WON swings while others have sports or holiday themes, or just reflect the Ms. Irvine’s artistic whims at the time.
