Aug. 19, 2022

A hanging chair is a comfortable piece of furniture. It is mainly associated with teenagers or children's rooms but is also popular among adults. This is not surprising - the rocking motion quickly relaxes the whole body. The hanging chair is also a highly aesthetic element. Is it suitable for all types of interior design? 


What are the best hanging chairs?

There are many different kinds of hanging chairs. Designers are constantly creating new forms. As a result, people can match the style of the hanging chair to the interior design of their location. You can choose from simple and minimalist, as well as decorative and ornamental shapes.

Choosing a hanging chair - types

The main difference between this type of furniture is the look and structure. Not every hanging chair is suitable for every room. When choosing the right object, consider your own needs and the purpose of the chair. The following products are available in most furniture shops.


Ceiling hanging chairs- This is the most attractive type. The seat hangs from a rope which is attached to a hook fixed to the ceiling. This type allows the user to make a full range of movements. There are wider and narrower models, so you can choose the one that suits your specific needs.


Lift chair with stand - This type is more mobile. The seat is suspended from a stand on the floor. It is much smaller than the version mounted on the ceiling. This is a great advantage in places where space is limited. This type of chair offers a smaller range of motion. The maneuverability allows it to be placed on a balcony or in the summer - on a terrace.


Brazilian hammock chair - This is a type of hammock. Its advantage is that it is perfectly suited to any body type. It is also much cheaper than the previous models. This type of hammock chair may be removed if required. It can easily be stored in a wardrobe and does not take up too much space.


If you decide to buy a sling chair, please take note of its shape. There are many designs to choose from. Some are completely round, similar to a bubble chair. The most common type is the hanging egg chair with an extended backrest. There are also versions for two people with wide seats. Make sure you consider the amount of space you can spare for this piece of furniture.

Things to consider when buying a hanging chair  


Choose sustainable materials such as wood, rattan, cane, or bamboo. Avoid buying anything that is not strong enough and cannot be recycled or reused.


Choosing the right spot

It is undoubtedly a piece of furniture that can be placed in almost any room, from a living space to a bedroom, home office or terrace. However, some corners will be better than others. When choosing where to hang your chair, choose the one you like and spend most of your time relaxing.



Depending on which room you choose to hang the chair in, you should avoid fixing the chair in a place that will interrupt the flow of the room. You still want to have enough space for foot traffic. Also, if it is near anything fragile, look around. To define the chair area, you can even place a small rug directly below the seat.



Before installing it, make sure you check that your ceiling can support its weight limit. Depending on which material your ceiling is made of, it will determine how safely you can hang the chair. For example, plasterboard ceilings require you to hang your chair from the ceiling joists of the roof, as this material is not as strong. While concrete, brick or wood/timber beams are not a problem. If you are not confident in doing it yourself, I would recommend that you get a professional to install it for you. Ultimately, your safety should be the priority.



Last but not least something to consider - invest in a quality piece that will last you a lifetime. If one day you want to get rid of it, it will still fit in well in its new home.


All you need to do now is get cozy with a few fluffy cushions, a blanket, or a faux sheepskin and you have the ultimate lounging experience.
