ABOUT

I remember years ago sitting on the front porch in a swing with my grandma as a young girl and she would tell me stories about the changing seasons…I can still feel the light blowing breeze in my hair, the warmth of the setting sun on my face, and the loving embrace of her arm around my shoulder. Some of the best memories can be made when you take the time to sit in a swing with someone you love and converse about life, tell jokes or stories, or never say a word. This is a fabulous mid-century modern outdoor patio glider by Homecrest Furniture. It is comprised of a freshly painted white curved frame and two taupe vinyl cushions with button detail. It’s just lovely. Can’t you just imagine leaning back and relaxing on your back deck, front porch, or lanai in this super comfortable loveseat glider swing? Cozy up with your sweetie in front of the pool, outdoor firepit, or just your beautiful back yard and glide away the stress of the day.

Homecrest began as an offspring of a retail furniture shop in Wadena, Minn. in 1953, when founders Mert Bottemiller and Al Engelmann set out to build a better ottoman than their vendors could supply. They soon expanded their business into manufacturing with a growing line of indoor and outdoor patio furniture. As retail sales prospered, distribution expanded into new markets including international, and contract for resorts, restaurants, and health care. The Homecrest outdoor patio furniture line also grew, with a stream of new collections, products and innovations which included self-adjusting chaise, swivel rocker recliner and chaise, gliders, padded slings and technically innovative fabrics, very low maintenance aluminum mesh, and the popular Comfort Recliner. They still manufacture some of the highest quality products with timeless designs and comfort. Homecrest has been redefined with new leaders, owners, manufacturing strategies, and a bold new emphasis on marketing and trend-driven designs.

They say life needs more fireflies and front porch swings…. Well, we may not be able to supply the fireflies, but we have the perfect glider for your front porch! So, get ready to go catch some fireflies and make this glider yours!!

the details

Wonderful mid-century modern Homecrest white painted metal glider with taupe vinyl cushions and button detail. Beautiful condition, keeping in mind that this is vintage and not new so will have signs of use and wear. It has been completely disassembled bushings replaced along with hardware that has been replaced with galvanized bolts and it has been painted and reassembled. Also, the original cushion clasps were broken so we devised a fastener with cloth covered bands that hold the cushion along the back. And the zipper in one cushion is closed now but missing some teeth so may not open properly. Please see photos and zoom in for details. We attempt to portray any imperfections. Circa, 1950-1960’s.
