What’s cooler than a hanging chair? The answer; a wicker hanging chair! I’ve caught myself dreaming about some of the hanging chairs I’ve seen on Gardenista, Home Design Lover, and over here on Design Swan. This prompted me to pull together a list of cool outdoor wicker hanging chairs.
Hanging chairs are a luxury. The feeling of weightlessness is stress-relieving like a hammock but nurturing like a daybed. It’s cute and delicate yet all the while fun and enchanting. I’ve seen them used inside of nursery rooms and also used as focal points of feminine designs. The wicker weave makes the chairs breathable so air passes through the chair and cools your back, perfect for days under the sun in the backyard.
Outdoor Wicker Hanging Chairs for Your Backyard
1. Circa Bamboo Hanging Chair
The Circa Hanging Bamboo chair has a concentric design that features a collapsible frame made from eco-friendly bamboo materials and finished with stainless steel hardware. The seatback and cushion are made from Suncrylic fabrics to give you the utlimate lounging pleasure. The entire chair is suspended by 4 cords that can be attached to any sturdy pole or hammock frame. It’s also available with a matching tripod.
The Nimbus Outdoor Hanging Egg Chair is available with or without a stand and comes with bottom and seat back cushions. That’s great because you can don’t have to pay for the stand if you don’t need it (+$100) and plan on hanging it from something in your backyard. Sometimes the weave on wicker furniture will unravel but you won’t have to worry about that because Harmonia Living (the maker of the Nimbus Hanging Chair) is one of the best outdoor wicker furniture brands. Their products use High Density Polyethylene Wicker (HDPE) which is fade-resistant and scratch resistant.
Personally, the Sheko Cradle Chair is my favorite on the list. I like the white wicker because it feminine, urban, and chic. It’s just another modish design by Zuo Modern. Zuo is known for their futuristic and cutting edge designs as seen in this list of new furniture. The weave is tight enough and it just reinforces the idea of lounging in heaven. It’s nest like design will cradle you and rock you to sleep. The one downside is that it costs more than the Nimbus Chair with a sale price of $1,107.00.
This chair has a tropical feel to it with a modern Espresso wicker weave. Made by Panama Jack, the Island Cove Hanging Chair uses a patented ViroFiber that is UV resistant so it won’t fade or crack. This chair differs from others on the list because it has an open and more boxed base while others have a circular base. This would allow you to pull it up closer to other chair or maybe right up to a table if you’re feeling extra lazy. The only caveat is that you wouldn’t be able to swing around in it with it so close to other furniture.
I had to show both versions of the Island Cove Wicker Hanging Chair because the weave is so different. The wicker on the Open Weave Chair goes all the way up around the top frame while this one is more of a swing. It has a small wicker seat that is woven on the same frame.
The swinging bench is a classic staple in the American Front Porch. The Rockport Swing Chair is an adaptation of the traditional wood swinging bench but instead it uses wicker which is more commonly associated with high end resorts (this is how wicker became popular). This chair is UV protected and offers a unique Chestnut Wicker finish. You’re also in for a treat because it comes with Sunbrella cushions which are the best in the industry (stain resistant). This model comes from Forever Patio, another company that makes quality wicker furniture.
The Catalina Wicker Swing Chair is also made by Forever patio but it is a little different. At first glance, they look identical but the seat back of the Catalina has an open back design and a frame runs along the upper back and down along the armchairs. This gives the chair a little more style instead of the plain pattern that runs across the entire Rockport Chair. The Catalina is a bit more elegant and features more twists and turns. It’s a suspension seat so you have to hang it to a something sturdy. If you want a swinging bench with a stand, you should go with the Rockport instead.
