🏆 The best Hanging Egg Chair :

 

What is a hanging egg chair?

 

Quite simply, it is a chair suspended on a stand or hung from the ceiling, which is therefore high above the floor. The seat takes its name from its egg shape, often made of wicker or woven rattan. Being suspended gives a feeling of lightness, and being gently rocked, like on a hammock or swing. Softer than a deckchair and more comfortable than a garden sofa, you can enjoy time for yourself and the whole family outdoors in a very comfortable hammock. Rather considered as garden furniture, it can however be put indoors and outdoors, you just need to have room in your home, hanging chairs being quite bulky.

 

How to choose the ideal hanging seat?

The different models of hanging egg chairs are, on the whole, quite similar in their use. Here are the criteria that will help you decide on your ideal egg chair.

  • The design: seen as a decorative element in its own right, you will have a choice of colours, materials and shapes to find the best hanging chair for your garden or living room.
  • Dimensions: depending on the space you have, you will have to choose a model that will fit, more or less wide and more or less large. Also remember to look at the height of the seat, so that your cocoon suits you, so that you don’t have trouble climbing on it, or sit too low. Some models have an adjustable height, ideal for everyone to enjoy.
  • Comfort: one of the most important criteria! The hanging egg chair must be a cosy nest, so it is essential that the small cushions or mattresses sold with it are comfortable.
  • Solidity: the egg chair must have a load capacity large enough to carry one or even two people, so that you don’t have any unpleasant surprises when you sit down with your toddler for example.
  • Indoor or outdoor: depending on where you want to put it, you will be able to choose in relation to the size, but especially in relation to the materials. Some models are more resistant than others to the weather, so opt for a more solid design if you want to put it outside. Even if the hanging chair is more robust for outdoor use, it is advisable to buy a cover to protect it.
  • The type of hanging chair: some models like those in our comparison are standing, more practical to install and move. Other egg chairs can be hung from the ceiling.
  • The price: unavoidable, this criterion is very important. It is important to know that these chairs are an investment, with an average price between 200 and 400€ for robust and quality models.

  1. Freestanding armchair – TecTake

No products found.

Stable and aesthetic with a choice of 3 colours, this hanging egg chair is easy to maintain. Rather wide, it will be more suitable for outdoor use, weather resistant. In spite of its design and charm, this synthetic rattan armchair is a bit expensive in relation to its quality. Indeed, some customer comments talk about lack of finishes, and it is quite common for the base to be damaged, which is a pity for such an investment.
