The Best Hanging Chairs: The Egg, Pod, and Rope Hanging Chairs for Outdoors, Patio

Curating an outdoor space that’s comfortable and stylish is more important than ever, and bringing the indoors out is a huge garden trend for summer 2020.

Creative outdoor seating is total de rigueur, and hanging chairs are more popular than ever. And there’s a style to suit every taste.

Add a dash of on-trend bohemian style to your outdoor area with a laidback-luxe macrame hanging chair; throw in some cool, contemporary vibes with a metal-framed hanging egg chair; or create a beach vibe with relaxed, cotton hammock-style hanging chairs.

Color-wise? The ball is your court, as organic, earthy neutrals are always timeless and chic but, if you’re feeling brave, now’s the time to experiment with color as bold brights are totally in too.

We’ve rounded up the best hanging chairs below so you can enjoy your garden in style all summer long. But be warned: You’ll have to be quick because these chairs are so popular they won’t hang around (sorry)…
