Earlier this year, we noticed a lot of home-design trend predictions pointing toward ‘70s decor broadly, and the returning popularity of hanging chairs, specifically.
Although hanging-chair love has seemed to spring up a little more each year for the past five or so, in 2017, we think we do actually see ceiling-suspended seating springing back into prominence. Or, if not quite the major prominence it had in the ’60s and ’70s, at least a noticeable boom with adventurous homeowners.
Not everyone finds hanging chairs appealing, but those of us who do can celebrate a little, since lately, you don’t need to scour vintage shops to find one for your place (unless you want to). New options with classic style are popping up all over the place.
Below, just a few that’ve caught our attention recently:
rattan hanging chair
East Nashville home goods shop Apple & Oak (717 Porter Rd.) stocks consistently stylish furniture that really suits the neighborhood. We particularly like this rattan/rope hanging chair, especially in white.
Tenley Rattan Swing Chair
Urban Outfitters has a similar rattan option, though a little less feminine in shape. (Their Nashville shop is at 405 12th Ave. S. in The Gulch.)
Knotted Melati Hanging Chair
On the flip side, Anthropologie has this super-intricate, macrame-style hanging chair that gives off feminine, almost doily vibes. (They have a Nashville location at 4031 Hillsboro Pike in Green Hills.)
Double Hanging Rattan Chair
Set up for off-the-floor snuggling: This one from Serena & Lily is built to fit two, and the mix of natural rattan with white trim really pops.
Pod hanging chair
This CB2 pod is meant to be an outdoor piece, but with its egg-y simplicity and scoop-shaped, cushioned seating area, it’d be just as comfortable and cool inside.
Hide swing chair
This one brings back memories of making glue/yarn balloons, in a good way. Probably the coolest detail: It comes in an array of color mixes, from this white/turquoise to deep gray/bright orange, so you can really go bold if you want.
Abate swing chair
If you want something a little less round, a little more of a modern twist on the retro look, there’s this from LexMod too. The shape and the dark gray synthetic rattan/white cushion are unique, and striking.
What’s your feeling on hanging chairs — still passé, back to stay or something in between? Weigh in in the comments if you’re loving/hating the idea of these becoming popular again.
