In the days of our fathers, because a hanging chair for bedroom would usually be made from low quality materials, they were made to look inexpensive and less durable. Today, top artisans from around the globe are making hanging chairs in their variety of styles, designs and functions that can nicely be incorporated into any interior configurations.

In today’s fast–paced world, moments are when you just want to sit down and think, or let yourselves go with your mind off the stuffs that might be bothering you. These moments usually call for a special place, somewhere very next to your nest or close to home where you don’t really have to go far. This is where an indoor swinging chair for adults comes in handy.

Swinging chairs may seem more like just a statement piece or a novelty item to be installed in the house, but with proper design, styling and settings, they are one of the coolest furniture pieces to install in a home. As well as liven up a bedroom space, a hanging chair from ceiling can create a cozy spot to hang and relax, curl up with a book, or just to enjoy views from the bedroom. That mentioned, when it comes to choosing hanging chairs for your home, there are lots of important aspects to put into consideration including;


Textile and rattan are the most common materials used for hanging chairs because of their light texture, sturdiness, flexibility, and above all, air can pass through them. With a powder coated aluminium, or stainless steel base, most contemporary swinging chairs are hand–knitted or made of crochet or acrylic. While a powder coated aluminium base is scratch prove and lighter, a stainless steel frame is less prone to bends and dents.


A hanging chair has two basic configurations, viz. to have the chair supported by a rope(s) attached to the ceiling, or to hang the chair on a fish–pole style rod with a sturdy base on the ground. Each of these configurations comes with its benefits.

For instance, a ceiling–mounted hanging chair is a great conversational piece that offers an enormous swing radius. This makes it a preferred piece of item especially by those looking to get more swings from their chairs. Designed to hover over the floor, and comes with the potential for more seating space especially when different ceiling tethers are used, a ceiling–hanging chair saves on floor space.

On the other hand, an indoor hanging chair with stand and a sturdy base on the ground is great if it is intended for moving around the bedroom. This configuration is the perfect option for outdoor units that are intended to be stowed in safely during bad weathers.


Another essential aspect to consider when choosing a swinging chair is where to place the chair within the bedroom. Having your pod hanging chair hung near the window is a great way to maximize the outdoor views as well as the natural air coming in from the outside. If however, you want your chair close to the bed, it is important to consider the distance, as chances are that you bump into it in the dark if it is too close to the bed. Another hanging option is the center of the bedroom where the chair will be the main conversation piece. This is a good idea especially in a room where the ceiling is cathedral–style.


The best way to accessorize and add harmonizing accents on a swinging chair is cushioning. As well as creating a more comfortable swinging chair experience, cushioning brings artistic balance to the bedroom through the chair. Most contemporary hanging chairs come with pre–installed cushioning in varied styles and designs for proper bedroom additions.


With a wide range of colors, designs, and styles, hanging chairs are built to fit perfectly into any room configuration. For instance, the synthetic rattan swinging chairs, and acrylic hanging bubble chairs are more suited to modern style bedrooms or rooms with contemporary profiles. In the same vein, yarn knit or rope patterns, and natural abaca weave patterns favor cozy rooms with more cottage–style vibe. For a hanging chair outdoor, or an indoor hanging egg chair for two to be placed in a sun–filled room, heavy duty textiles like synthetic tent fabric and cotton can be considered.
