Hanging egg chairs are everywhere right now (with particular thanks to the likes of Mrs. Hinch and Stacey Solomon). Now that the sun is finally coming out and lockdown restrictions have eased, we can start filling up our social calendars with plans (to say we’re keen for the company is an understatement). Most of those plans will take place in each other’s gardens, as we can natter on for hours while soaking up the rays – safely.
It’s no wonder, then, that revamping our garden is top of our list. And what better way to make your outdoor space feel brand new than with some modern garden furniture picks. Step forward: the best hanging egg chair – a garden furniture trend that was first popularized in the 1960s.
While typically designed for use in the garden, the hanging egg hair can also be used as an indoor seating addition to your bedroom or living room – so if it starts raining like it does every summer, simply bring it inside. With plush cushions and headrests, they’re the coziest, most comfortable way to enjoy a glass of boxed wine under the sun or curl up for an afternoon nap.

How do you hang a hanging chair?
The latest hanging chair designs come with a stand, which allows it to be swung without needing to be drilled into a ceiling or wall. Instead, once assembled, simply sit back and relax. It’s the fastest way to a fuss-free garden makeover.
If it does need to be attached to a structure, you will need to brush up on your DIY skills (or ask someone else to do it for you). Pick a space where you can comfortably swing three to four feet without crashing into anything, then you’ll need to install a solid ceiling joist to ensure it won’t damage your home and stay hanging.
How much weight can a hanging chair hold?
Don’t worry about having nightmares of sitting on your new hanging egg chair and falling to the ground in a heap, they’re specifically designed for adults to sit on. Each chair, depending on how it’s made, will hold different weights, so if you’re in doubt, just pay close attention to the information on its website before you head to the checkout.
