Hanging chairs are definitely not a new trend, but they sure don’t seem to be going anywhere anytime soon! There is a huge re-surge in hanging chairs, especially hanging rattan chairs. I don’t know about you, but I’ve been on a little bit of a rattan kick lately (along with bamboo, and really anything that has a lighter natural wood feel). I just love how adding natural elements to spaces can bring an eclectic and rich/sophisticated vibe, while adding subtle texture at the same time. One of my favorite ways to style these beautiful chairs is in a modern boho type room. They instantly transform a room into an inviting, playful, and cozy area. They’re perfect for that empty corner of your living room, bedroom, and/ that you have no clue what to do with, and they look extra chic in nurseries!
This one is especially wonderful because it’s self hanging– perfect for a rental home or apartment that has stricter rules on putting holes in your ceiling!
This is what (my) front porch dreams are made of.
As you can see, the most common way to style these chairs is by adding a softer element such as a faux white fur throw, fuzzy or extra plush pillows. The mix of the strong, hard rattan with the soft, textured faux fur compliment each other well, leaving an overall balanced feeling. PLUS these plush additions make you want to curl up with your favorite book and cup of tea and never leave.
What do you think? Are you into these playful chairs or not? How would you use them in your home! I’d love to hear your thoughts and ideas in the comments below!
