summer swing giveaway!!!

summer is right around the corner and to celebrate, we have a giveaway that you will want to use every day until the cold creeps back in – our display team has donated one of the incredible swings from our new summer install and one lucky reader will get to call it their own!

these swings are completely sturdy and usable, with wooden slats as a base and colorful netting to cover it with. as with many of our displays, our team drew inspiration from india, where our senior store designer spends half of each year. the netting, trimmed with beads, pompoms and tassels, is the same kind that is draped over the backs of camels in india.  the rope used to hang the chair is also the same kind as camel reins in india, and consists of colorful string carefully wrapped around thick rope. we used similar pieces on the camel in our august 2010 catalog shoot and the same netting was used on the horse in our march catalog shoot!

  192. Hi Free People, I’ve filled out all the forms and I was already a liker on Facebook, so that’s a check too.

    Me and my boyfriend moved to Whistler, Canada from England and have just bought our 1st house. We’re only 25 and now unfortunately we now have no money to re-vamp our awesome, but very plain, new house. This swing would be the perfect thing to out some sparkle back in our home until all out stuff is shipped from England.

    Fingers crossed <3

  193. I completed it all, invited friends and left you this poem on Facebook. Pamela Mae Spencer-Latham This is HEAVEN! I love the colors, I love to swing, I love my flower garden now blooming in Spring. I love the texture, I love the size, I would be daydreaming for hours under blue skies. If ever there was a gift for me, it would be this swing hanging under my tree!

  194. All done! This would look greaton the porch at my school. BTW I go to school in the forest where we canoe, paint, write and sing all day. Seriously, it’s called Headwaters.

  195. Fin. Love you, this blog, this store, that chair, and the storm visable through my window right now.

  196. I’ve liked your facebook page and filled out the form (Rust Hawk on FB). Thank you so much for the entry!

  207. Oh My Goodness!! This swing is to die for :) I absolutely love it!! I would love to set this up in my daughter’s bedroom with the pink damask wall paper. I just couldn’t have it outside to become damaged in anyway. As I said in another post, I have never been able to step foot in a Free People Boutique. I have ordered all my Free People items on the web-site or by store search. I really am disappointed that I do not get to go to their stores. The displays I have seen pictures of are awesomely beautiful. I wish upon a star that I might win this insanely beautiful Free People Display. Thank you for the opportunity to win such a nice gift FP ~~<3~~xoxo

    there’s a perfect spot in our yard – we call it “the gallows” – where swings once hung but now it’s just a place we hang plants… it would be so wonderful to put this swing there and restore, in a most beautiful manner, the gallows to its original pendulant purpose.

  225. Summer exudes feelings of freedom, fun, youth and love. These words are also interchangeably used to describe Free People’s whimsical collections. I have had such a passion for what FP stands for and this swing not only symbolizes all that embodies what has inspired FP but it also stands for gorgeous days spent with friends laughing in the sun while the wind plays with every strand of hair. I would more than love this swing, I would enjoy it for everything it means to me.
