ODD's Old Rockers
Imagine having your favourite sofa in your garden all summer long.
Affectionately known as Old Rockers, our luxury garden swing seats are made to your bespoke requirements in England. Along with our swing seats, we also have a range of idyllic garden furniture and fabrics. All ODD fabrics are printed here in England. Do, please, browse our website and contact us by phone or email with any bespoke requests or general queries - we love an opportunity to talk to our customers.
What makes us ODD?
We are ODD because we like our products to be made in England to a quality that our children's children will enjoy. Having things mass produced in distant parts of the world, with quality compromised in order to maximise profit margins, is just not for us.
We are also ODD because we are not a typical online shop and want our customers to ring and speak to us about an order. We try to provide a very personal service.
Since 2003, we have been designing and making locally, ranges of garden furniture, fabrics and accessories. The core product has always been, and continues to be, the Old Rocker, the original fully upholstered swinging garden sofa that can be left out all summer long.
We have developed the Old Rocker's design over the last 19 years and now offer an extensive range of options for our swing seats. We would love to help you design your own Old Rocker and hope that, once you have looked at the pages that follow, you will give us a call.
What do we make?
How to order?
Owing to the handmade nature of our swing seats and the many bespoke elements, we have only a limited number of Old Rockers available each year. For this reason, if you are interested, we recommend you get in touch as soon as possible to register your interest.
From there, we can talk you through the many options available to you: our range of fabrics and all the bespoke parts that combine to make your Old Rocker completely unique to you.
Once your order is ready, we can hand deliver and assemble your swing seat for you. It is a highlight of our job to watch you sink into it for the first time, the start of a life-long love affair with rocking.
How our rockers are made
We make all our products here in England, working with a team of experienced makers whose expertise we rely on to produce a swing seat of the finest quality.
Our swinging sofas are intricate pieces of garden furniture, each part custom-made with great care and skill.

There are some pictures below that offer a taster of how our Old Rockers can come together. We love how each has its own distinctive character. We've also collated an archive of pictures of swing seats we've made customers over the years in a separate gallery, which we hope is useful for further inspiration.
Discover our fabrics
We have a collection of fabrics suitable for indoor and outdoor use.
Our polycotton canvas is a marine-grade, waterproof and rot-resistant fabric that can be left out all summer long.
We also make linens and cottons in our exclusive ODD prints, for use inside your rocker or anywhere at all.
All fabrics are available by the metre.
