Hanging egg chairs for indoors and outdoors to buy this summer

Posted by for Home and interiors

Hanging egg chairs are the oh-so-cool furniture trend we’re loving both inside our homes and in the garden this summer. 

Sure, the concept of an egg-shaped chair that hangs from the ceiling sounds like a bit of a gimmick, but bear with us, because this furniture piece is set to be the must-buy of the summer. 

That’s right, hanging egg chairs have been popping up on the websites of homeware retailers more and more as the warmer months approach, making us want one for our own abodes.

They’re available for both indoor and outdoor use, so you could treat yourself to a macrame, boho-style hanging chair for the corner of your bedroom or a minimalist-look suspended seat for the garden.

Whatever you go for though, we’re sure it’ll be comfortable and relaxing to hang out in (sorry). Here’s seven of our favourites – happy shopping.

    Hanging chairs: Wayfair

    We love that this circular hanging chair has a boho vibe thanks to macrame-style tassels and its natural colour.

    We’d also take lead from how it’s been accessorised in this picture, buy piling textured, fluffy cushions and throws in to sit on.

    This cool chair not only looks great, but it has an interesting story behind it, too.

    It’s produced in El Salvador by local workers and each one is made up of 80% denim waste cuts, earning it some eco-friendly points. You can machine wash the fabric, so keeping it clean is no problem.
