The Leaf Swing by Alberto Sánchez is a beautiful twist on a playground staple. It replaces the unsightly black plastic seat with a bright white patterned seat that is shaped like a leaf.

In the sunlight, the Leaf Swing casts a beautiful veined shadow onto the ground. While Alberto Sánchez' concept may be more appropriate for an uptown backyard than a downtown playground, it was only a matter of time before designers classed up the standard swing.
