Indoor Swing Chair Ideas
Hanging chairs may seem like just a novelty item to have in a home—something to swing around in and to consider as just more of a statement piece. However, given the proper setting and style, it could potentially one of the best used pieces of furniture you could ever install. There are several important aspects to consider when it comes to choosing your swinging chair.
Mounting –There are usually two configurations for a swing or hanging chair, to have it hang from a sturdy base on the ground from a fish-pole style rod, or to have a rope or series of ropes attached to the ceiling to support the chair. A hanging chair with a base is preferred if the piece of furniture is meant to be moved around the room. It is also a better option for outdoor configurations so that it can be safely stowed during bad weather. On the other hand, a ceiling-hanging chair is great for people wanting to get more swing from their chair, providing a larger swing radius. In addition, it’s also a great conversational piece and, when using several different ceiling tethers, has the potential for more seat space. Lastly, the ceiling-mounted hanging chair saves on floor space, as it just hovers over the ground.
Location—It is important to consider where the chair will be placed, especially if it is in a bedroom. Placing it near the window is typically a good idea, as it is a great way to view the outdoors and to maximize fresh air coming in from the outside. If placing near the bed, it is important to take note of the distance, as users may bump into it when it is dark. There is also the option of hanging it at the center of the room as the main conversation piece. This is extremely good for rooms where the ceilings are cathedral-style, with the hanging chair mounted at the peak.
Material—Some of the more common materials used for hanging chairs are rattan and textile. These are both good options because they are light, flexible, sturdy and let air pass through. Some more modern hanging chairs may be made of acrylic or handmade knit or crochet. Usually the base and/or frame of the chair will be in a stronger stainless steel or powder coated aluminum. Steel is less prone to dents and bends, but powder coated aluminum is lighter and resists scratching.
Style—Ranging from its color, material and style, there are many different types of hanging and swinging chairs to fit any bedroom configuration. More modern style bedrooms may favor the acrylic hanging bubble or contemporary profiles made of synthetic rattan. Bedrooms that aim for a cozier, more cottage-style vibe can consider going for natural abaca weave patterns or yarn knit / rope patterns. Heavy duty textiles such as cotton and synthetic tent fabric are also a good idea if the chair is meant for two, or if the chair is going to be placed outdoors or in a sun-filled room. Another type of hanging chair is the cocoon style that envelops the user and comes in a variety of colors and designs. Get other ideas for a cocoon chair here.
Cushioning—Cushioning is basically the best way to accessorize and put complementary accents on the hanging chair. Besides bringing aesthetic balance to the chair, it also creates a more comfortable hanging chair experience. Some hanging chairs even come with cushioning already pre-installed, so it is important for the buyer to test the chair or to test the chair with a cushion, before committing to their new bedroom addition.
