Hanging Indoor Chairs

Updated on January 23, 2016

Hanging chairs for bedrooms and living rooms

Don't you love the idea of an indoor hanging chair? Well, I certainly do and I have been hooked on this type of chair since I was a kid and went on a visit to a friend's house who had a hanging bubble chair in her bedroom! I thought it was the most wonderful thing I had ever seen, being able to sit in that hanging chair and swing around as on an outdoor swing!

Did you think that hanging chairs were only for ouside use on the porch or patio? Well, the truth is that hanging chairs are a great idea both for outdoors and indoors and most of the hanging chairs featured on this page can be used either inside or outside.

Depending on the style of your home and the rest of your furniture, you can choose between designer pieces in acrylic, metal and leather or more classic designs in rattan or wicker. Whatever style you choose, a hanging chair looks unusual and quite striking in a living room, bedroom or family den and will certainly be a focal point in your home. Hanging chairs are also a great idea for children's bedrooms as they are both playful and useful, they give your child a sense of privacy and quiet even in the most noisy environment and kids just love them! Hanging chairs are also great space savers as they use no floor space, unless you prefer to use a special stand with them.

Browse through this handpicked collection of my favorite hanging chairs and I am sure you will find one that will perfectly suit your taste and needs!

Can you have fun just by sitting in a chair? Oh! Yes! You certainly can if this chair is the famous hanging bubble chair originally designed Eero Aarnio. Round and transparent like a soap bubble, hanging from above, it gives you a weightless feeling of floating in the air! Made of thick see-through acrylic, it is big and thick enough to isolate you from even the noisiest environment, which makes it ideal for reading, listening to your favorite music or just relaxing in some peace and quiet, yet its transparency still allows you to keep in touch with everything going on around you!

A striking piece of very unusual furniture, it will become the centerpiece of any room you place it in. The comfortable vinyl cushions are available in red, silver, black or white and you can either hang it from the ceiling or a beam as it was originally designed, or hang it from a special metal stand which however will, in my opinion, take the "WOW" factor out of it, as well as take up some floor space.

Egg shaped hanging chair

Designed by Arne Jacobsen more than 40 years ago, this egg shaped hanging chair is still a classic and well loved design, featured in many homes, as well as films and commercials. With its white fiberglass exterior and red upholstered fully padded interior, this chair is perfect for reading, watching TV, or just relaxing. Its bold happy colors also make it perfect for children's rooms.

The perfect hanging chair for kids

This is the cheapest and highest quality hanging seat for kids you can possibly get your hands on. It is made of high quality synthetic material, fully washable and includes a red round inflatable pillow. Depending on the preferences of your child, you can pump more or less air in it. This product has excellent consumer reviews on Amazon and is perfectly suited for either indoor or outdoor use. I was given this as a gift three years ago and it has been hanging from a tree in our garden since. Both our sons took a lot of pleasure playing, swinging or just relaxing in it and it shows no signs of wear. Our younger son who was a very restless and sleepless child when young, often relaxed so much in it as to go to sleep!

Keep in mid that according to many reviews on Amazon and the opinion of specialized therapists, this swing chair is perfectly suited for children with autism or sensory problems, as it has been proven that swinging helps develop the sense of balance and body perception, as well as bringing a feeling of relaxation, peace and well-being.

The Ikea swing chair comes complete with really heavy duty hooks and all necessary pieces for hanging.from the ceiling.
