10 Best Hanging Egg Chairs for a Cool, Comfortable Look in Any Room

We love the egg chair revival. In fact, we began our journey back to the past with our article on Outdoor Egg Chairs a few weeks ago, and we can’t wait to show you what we’ve found this time.

Hanging egg chairs add a sense of individualist style to a room like no other piece of furniture can. They can go in the living room, bedroom, or even outside on the patio or in the garden. They can go retro or project a modern flair depending upon the design.

Either way, what we’re saying is that they’re a great addition to your space.

13 Hanging Egg Chairs Tips

Do you want to learn how to find the best hanging egg chairs for your home? Here are a few quick tips to keep in mind when you shop:

Check Your Ceiling Height

By far, this is the most important factor that will determine which model you can purchase and use. Before shopping, measure your ceiling height and compare it to the models you find. You need clear space of at least five feet under your hanging egg chair before purchasing it. Otherwise, it won’t be compatible with your space.

Check Your Ceiling Strength

If your ceiling is not very sturdy, it might not support your hanging egg chair model. For thinner or lighter models, you may be able to find a heavy-duty ceiling mount to secure it in place.

Take Measurements

Whether you’re shopping online or in-person, always take measurements of your space before purchasing a hanging egg chair. This will help you determine which size will work best for your room and give you the best value for your money.

Look at Reviews

Check out different reviews to determine which hanging egg chair models other people are using successfully. This will help you avoid any common problems that might occur when using it and choose the best model for your needs.

Buy Quality

Make sure you’re buying a quality product by checking its materials, including the seat size, design and style, stand (for freestanding models), and ceiling mount (for adjustable hanging egg chairs). Make sure all materials are top quality before making your purchase.

Shop Around

If you’re shopping online, be sure to take advantage of helpful coupons or discounts and look at a variety of different websites before deciding which is the best for you. This ensures that you’ll find the perfect deal on the perfect hanging egg chair style.

Remember Warranties

While a quality product won’t malfunction, accidents do happen. Make sure your hanging egg chair comes with a warranty in case anything happens to it during installation or after use. This will help prevent major problems while you enjoy your new seat!

Pets and Kids

Think about who will be using the hanging egg chair and whether it’s best for them or if there are other chairs that would work better. Dogs, cats, and young children might ruin your seat if they’re left unsupervised with it.

Read Instructions

Every hanging egg chair should come with instructions on how to properly install and use it. Read them over carefully and don’t skip any steps to avoid mistakes that might cause you problems later on.

Know the Return Policy

The best retailers will offer a generous return policy in case your hanging egg chair is damaged or defective. Check out this information before making your purchase so that you can send back any model or receive a refund if necessary.

Indoor Us

Most hanging egg chairs are designed for indoor use only, so they won’t hold up well to the elements. If you have plans to take your seat outside or want it for a specific outdoor occasion, make sure it offers weatherproof features or can handle inclement conditions.


As with any piece of furniture, you should consider how the hanging egg chair will fit into the rest of your room’s decor. Black and white colors are popular for their simplicity, but make sure they’ll match any other color themes you plan to use in the same space.

Pillows and Cushions

Most models come with standard cushions included, but you can also purchase extra pillows to make the chair more comfortable for yourself or as a novelty gift for a friend.

Hanging Egg Chair FAQ

How do you hang a hanging chair? 

Hanging chairs are designed to either hang from the ceiling or from a stand. 

How you hang an egg chair from the ceiling all depends upon your space, what’s comfortable for your size, your comfort level, and safety. 

Hanging an egg chair on a stand is usually pretty straightforward, as the stand has a fixed height anyway. Other styles may require special hardware or professional installation from a ceiling joist. For a tutorial on how to hang a hanging chair, click here.

Are hanging chairs safe?

As long as you follow the weight capacity guidelines and follow the instructions to the letter. If you’re hanging a ceiling chair, you can check out the tutorial above. Still, for the safest option, we recommend turning to a professional. 

Also, hanging egg chairs aren’t meant to be used as swings, so make sure to give the kiddos in your house the “It’s NOT a TOY, for cryin’ out loud!” speech. (Also, tell them to get outta your seat. You’ve got some reading to catch up on. Or Candy Crush. You do you.)

Can I buy a frame for a chair meant to hang from the ceiling?

Yes! You can absolutely purchase a frame to use with a ceiling-style egg chair. Usually, these frames are sold anywhere you can buy an egg chair. Just double-check that the measurements work so your feet don’t drag on the ground like a grownup on a swing set.

Do I need a professional to install my hanging chair?

If you’re hanging it from the ceiling, probably. Really, it all depends on how handy you are and how confident you are in your abilities. We’re all about self-empowerment, and we have faith that you can do all the stuff with all the tools if you put your mind to it, BUT this one’s absolutely up to you. Use your best judgment. 

Hang Out and Relax for a While

There’s a reason that babies (usually) love to chill in their little swings with the twinkly music – it’s just so soothing. Your new hanging egg chair will be too, so take a cup of tea and a cozy throw blankie with you and settle in. Just don’t doze off with a cup of hot tea in your lap!
