Swing chairs combine the vibe and relaxation of a hammock, with the space efficiency of a regular chair. These simple seats offer a comfortable embrace, and their gentle rocking motion will melt your cares away. Swing chairs with stands are equally at home inside and outside.
What to Consider
Hanging swing chairs are, by definition, symbols of relaxation and mellow enjoyment. But beyond aesthetics and style, there are a few factors to consider when buying a swing chair with a stand.
Some of our selections can support as much as 350 pounds, whereas the majority have a cap of about 265 pounds. If you’re looking for a swing chair that can support anyone—or even want to squeeze in a couple people—look for a model that can hold more weight.
Many of these models work as well outdoors as they can indoors. But if you’re looking for a chair and cushion that can stand up to the elements, look to see if it’s UV-resistant. For those who wish to enjoy a cup of coffee or a snack in their chair, we recommend a product with a machine-washable cushion.
Since these swing chairs come with a stand, you’ll want consider it’s footprint. Some may take up more space than others. Models with legs on the stand tend to take up more floor area than those with a circular base. In addition to the style of the stand, if you plan on keeping your chair outside, the stand and chair should be weather resistant.
