Though it thrills the inner child, Serious Swing is definitely sized for grownups. In playful bright yellow, Weltevree's towering aluminum structure stands nearly 10 feet-tall—with optional garden lights to illuminate the ground below—and its double wooden seats each hold 220 pounds. Not just for the park or plaza, it can also be placed indoors, perhaps in a large office setting to offer space for a casual meeting. As designer Thor her Kulve puts it, “A swing is the ultimate way of experiencing freedom.”

The bold and bulbous wood-burning Dutchtub hot tub grabbed our attention in 2013, and with a wider range of equally unorthodox, high-quality, yet essential outdoor furniture and lighting newly on offer from this Holland house of design, it was high time A+R roll it out stateside as the brand's first North American dealer. Perfect poolside at home or in hotels, or take the to-go Beach Rocker or Guidelight seaside or camping.
Quality of life is what drives the Weltevree family, and that includes their approach to design: from FSC-approved and -certified timber, much of it harvested from Dutch forests; to premium steel and finishes. To them, it’s about “indulging experiences that promote well-being. We totally believe life is about what you experience; not what you own.” We can totally get behind that.
