Hanging Patio Egg Chair

Updated on January 23, 2016

Why not Add a Hanging Patio Chair to your Outdoor Furniture?

As Spring is making its way towards Summer, I spend more and more time outside. I love working in my garden weeding, pruning, planting, and generally pottering around and there are days when I really work myself out to the point of exhaustion, not realising how time flies by doing things I love and am deprived of during the cold winter months.

At the end of such an exhausting day, I reward myself by curling up in my favorite hanging patio egg chair, gently swinging in it with an X-large cold drink in my hand, while I gaze out at the result of my day's work.

On the rare occasions when I can relax in my garden or patio without having a hundred chores to do, I really like to pamper myself and relax in absolute comfort. Not for me the classic wooden garden bench or upright metal chair. I always opt for the most comfortable outdoor furniture I can lay my hands on and this egg shaped patio swing chair was undoubtedly one of my best choices.

On this page, I will show you all of my favorite hanging egg chair models available so that you may add one of them to your Spring/Summer wishlist!

Belina – Synthetic Wicker Porch Swing Chair – Great Hammocks - Model – Y9037gn

Stand and cushion included. Assembly is quite straightforward


The Ultimate Idea of Comfort

Pamper yourself in this bright green synthetic wicker X-large hanging egg chair. It is all weather resistant and ideal for your patio, garden or backyard. You can relax in it by the pool or even place it indoors if you prefer. Add some colorful decorative pillows for extra comfort and you will want to spend the rest of your life in it!

How about relaxing in a hanging bubble chair?

I just love this design! Larger and deeper than a classic egg swing, it is really roomy and comfortable and can support up to 280 lbs. Made of weather resistant resin wicker, it includes really large, extra comfortable all weather cushions and a steel stand. This is a lovely idea and striking design which will instantly transform your outdoors.

Most of the hanging chairs shown here include a steel hanging stand. This is a good idea, because it enables you to move them around if you wish, although it does take up more floor space than if the chair was hanging freely from the ceiling. You can certainly use them without the stand if you wish, in which case you should hang them securely from a specially designed hook anchored in the ceiling.

If you do decide to opt for such a model, without a stand, keep in mind that you do need a very strong ceiling and achoring system in order to be safe. I had a slightly overweight friend who bought a similar model with no stand and he unfortunately ended up on the floor with a pile of rubble around him...

Even if you do buy a hanging chair model with no stand however, you can always buy a stand for it later on if you change your mind. There are some stands for hanging swing chairs featured towards the bottom of this page.

All weather wicker patio swing chair

Great looking, all weather resistant and so comfortable! The steel stand allows you to place it anywhere you like and to reposition it as you wish. The spring mechanism included adds suspension and contributes to a relaxing and very enjoyable seating experience. The basket consists of a powder coated aluminum frame for extra durability and synthetic wicker for weather resistance. The swing chair comes complete with a large weatherproof cushion for extra comfort.

What do you think of hanging chairs?

Do you like the idea of a hanging chair or hammock in your garden or patio?

Not too sure about the shape?

Although I simply love the look and comfort of egg shaped or bubble swing chairs, some people, either because they are too tall or too wide or both, or for whatever other reason, do not like the shape of these hanging patio chairs. If you are one of those, but still like the idea of a swing chair in your garden or on your porch, there is quite a large choice of contemporary designs for you to consider.

And a Choice of Hammock Chairs...

Hammock style swing chairs are soft and pliable and very lightweight, made of fabric or woven fibres or ropes, they take the shape of your body and are therefore extremely comfortable and they are very very versatile, in the sense that you can hang them almost anywhere, even from a thick, sturdy tree branch. They may not be as classy and striking as rattan egg or sphere shaped hanging chairs, but they look quite stunning outdoors and they are much cheaper. Here is a choice of the top rated ones on Amazon but there are really many more options available, so please be free to click on the pictures and browse through the whole collection

...and swing stands - for all hanging chairs, swings and hammocks

You may have bought a hanging swing or hammock chair to hang from your ceiling and then decided to take it outside in the garden or by your pool where there is nowhere to hang it from. Or you may have decided that your ceiling is really not that sturdy to support all this weight at one point and that you need a stand. Whatever the reason, you buy specially designed metal stands for hanging chairs on Amazon. Here is a selection of the top rated ones, but there are many more to choose from.

What do you think of indoor hanging chairs?

Outdoor hanging chairs and hammocks are simply lovely and relaxing for summer, but I think indoor hanging chairs are a great idea too! From simple wicker hanging chairs to designer models, you can find a hanging chair for any room, compatible with any style of home décor!

      These are neat. My ultimate relaxation is a swinging hammock but it is easier to drink a beer in a chair. You win.
