Hanging chairs with stands can be easily placed anywhere you need a comfortable seat. They are available in different sizes and designs, from a simple sling for one person to large hammocks for two adults or several children. Not only are they versatile, but they also offer an amazing range of styles and colors to incorporate into your home, patio or lawn decor. They can become your favorite place to relax or be used as extra or emergency seating for large parties or unexpected guests.
Many of them only require a simple C-stand that can be set up in minutes and does not require any additional construction for your house or terrace. They can be incorporated into play sets or even added to old swings that the kids have outgrown. If you have a large, sturdy tree, some of them can be hung from a branch.
If you love the comfort of a hammock but don’t have space to set it up, a C-stand with a colorful hanging chair is the perfect solution. Soft cotton pillows with back support provide a comfortable place to read, sew or just relax. With the C-stand you can place it anywhere, indoors or outdoors. The steel frame is easy to assemble with just four parts and is powder-coated for additional wear resistance. Weight capacity up to 265 pounds. A one-year manufacturer’s guarantee applies to the purchase.
Woven hammock chair made of polyester
If you love that summer breeze but hate the sweat dripping down your back because your chair is just too cozy, you will love this hanging chair. This seat is attached to a sturdy dowel rod that is decorated with tassels at each end. It can be hung almost anywhere. It can be attached to a C-stand, child’s swing, branch or porch roof, or even the ceiling of your living room. Hanging hardware is included, but the C-stand must be purchased separately.
Hanging chair for two or more
Like birds in trees, you can nest together in this conical hammock. It can accommodate two adults or a couple of children. Much like the hanging nests of weaver birds, these hammocks are the perfect place for a quiet conversation or to escape prying eyes while enjoying nature. However, allow for additional hanging height as it requires at least eight feet of vertical space. Can be hung with a tripod frame.
Low key striped hammock chair
Enjoy comfort and subtle good taste with this striped hanging chair. The attractive blue, gray, brown, and white stripes are a soothing color combination. You can easily picture them next to a delphinium bed or even a bright tulip bed. The cotton fabric is a good choice in summer. The hammock chair can be hung in any stable place, including a C-stand, although a stand is not included. Weight capacity is 250 pounds and comes with a one year warranty.
Pumpkin peel chair
Enjoy the last days of summer sun in a hanging hanging chair that resembles a large pumpkin. The sturdy, curved ribs cradle a comfortable pillow worthy of Peter Pumpkin’s reluctant bride. It comes in a thirsty pumpkin patch orange, beautiful candy apple red or subtle leaf brown. It offers comfort in every color. The capacity is 400 pounds so you and your sweetheart or you and a few children can snuggle up in it easily. It is designed for two adults.
Egg rocking chair
Make yourself comfortable in this cozy egg chair and enjoy the summer breeze. It comes with its own C-stand and can be set up indoors or outdoors. The mesh sides support and allow air to circulate, while the seat and back padding provide additional comfort for the user. Bring your book, handicraft, or just yourself for some fresh air and sun. It also works well in a minimalist home decor where space is limited. It goes well with wicker, seascapes, shabby chic or country.
Bowl-shaped rocking chair with stand
While it looks a lot like the egg chair, the bottom of this one is lined with a round cushion that looks a lot like the one used in bowl chairs. It comes with its own C-stand and has a weight capacity of 265 pounds. The circular base of the C-stand makes it a little friendlier to floors than the three-legged stands. Capacity is one, and the gray color combined with the woven shell gives it an almost futuristic feel. The muted color also makes it easy to mix and match with other furniture.
Modern rocking chair with stand
If you prefer to curl up in a chair, this aluminum frame rocking chair is for you. The chair’s woven body is made from olefin, a plastic that retains its color and shape over many seasons. The pillows are removable so they look fresh and pretty easily. It is suitable for indoor or outdoor use. However, for outdoor use it is recommended to remove the cushions and cover the chair when no one is sitting in it. The cheerful color of the woven body makes it a pleasant addition to any conservatory or patio.
If you love hanging chairs, you’ll be glad to find this metal C-stand available. It has a capacity of 300 pounds, is powder coated for durability and beauty, and is easy to assemble. For a reasonable price, you can easily set up two or more hanging chairs to share the experience of swinging in the wind with family and friends. To use with toddler equipment, some people have shared pool noodles and put them on their feet to protect the little ones from bumps.
Adjustable hanging chair stand for hammock chairs and swings
This “C” frame could almost be referred to as an L-frame. It’s a little different from your standard C-frame. Instead of the giant C on a three-legged base, it’s shaped more like a marriage between a C and a slightly broken L. The base is a wide, three-sided rectangle with the ends twisting up and then narrowing to form the hanging point on top. A steel snap safety hook increases hanging security by preventing things from slipping off. Good for indoor or outdoor use, its capacity is 330 pounds.
Focus on your choices
Choosing a hammock chair can be confusing. There are so many styles to choose from. You can narrow down your choices by making a few key decisions.
Who will sit in the chair?
If the occupant is a tall adult, watch out for these seat and support weight restrictions. If you plan to use one of the C-stands for a kid’s swing, you may need to add extra protection against falls as the legrests are made of steel and can cause damage. If the chair can accommodate two or more people, allow for the combined weight.
Where will the chair be placed?
Most hammock chairs can be placed indoors or outdoors, and many of these easy-to-place hanging chairs will fit in a regular room, but some require additional space on the top.
Color and style
Designs include simple slings, egg shapes, bowl shapes, and a hanging tent. Two-person seats are mostly bowl-shaped or hanging tents. The colors are different and most styles come in more than one color. Styles include simple hammocks with pillows, open looms that are perfect for summer, wide hammocks that look almost like a small hanging tent, and futuristic shell chair styles.
Textures and fabrics
Cotton is a very comfortable material that feels good on the skin and “breathes”. However, it can retain heat and moisture, making it a less valued fiber for summer use. Open weave options can be cotton or synthetic. The advantage of the open weave is that it allows good airflow, but it can be harsh on the skin and may require some type of liner.
Simple hanging chairs for one person are relatively inexpensive, as are the stands. But you need to keep these weight requirements in mind. Buying a lightweight device for someone who weighs more than 200 pounds is a false economy.
Some of the hammocks have their own stand, but some need to be purchased separately. For your convenience, two types of C-stand are listed after the descriptions of the hammocks. Some types of hammocks may require a large, third style tripod. The tripods or wooden arch styles are more sturdy than the C-stands. However, the latter are sufficient for most types of hanging chairs and have the fortunate advantage of being easier to move.
Protect your investment with a good cover, especially if it is for outdoor use. Wind, precipitation, heat and cold all affect your chair hammock. Dust can also have an effect. By covering it when not in use, you will help make your hanging chair last longer.
Goes with everything
You can incorporate a hanging chair into almost any decor, including Victorian or Edwardian ones. All it takes is the colors in your room, the style of the chair and the accessories. Adding a fringed scarf, some bright pillows, or decorative tassels can transform the simplest of hanging chairs into a luxurious retreat.
The best thing about a hanging chair is that every style is focused on comfort. Whether it is the simple sling or the elaborate pumpkin seat for two people, hammock chairs are intended for relaxing, cuddling or even cuddling.
