Who doesn’t love a hanging chair? I mean, have you seen the latest trends and styles the market has to offer? Owning one is like placing a beautiful sculpture casually in your home in the most unexpected ways. A variety of style preferences are readily available to choose from, but beyond the aesthetics of a hanging chair, they offer many other soothing benefits that we can all enjoy. Now, I’m sure you can’t help but think you could only place a hanging chair outdoors. However, I am going to give you 5 good reasons why hanging chairs are a must. Here is how you too can incorporate them in practically any space in your home.
1. LIVING ROOM
Who knew you would eventually bring inside a piece of furniture that long ago was intended for outdoor use. Well, it’s now more possible than ever to do so with so many indoor options now available to us. Incorporating a hanging chair can add an interesting element of surprise for your guest. It brings interest to an otherwise boring space when careful space planning is considered. If you have the space for it, add it in a small nook somewhere in your living room. If you are a person who loves to entertain, then the hanging chair becomes the ideal furniture piece that spruces things up for casual seating.
Swing your stress away with one of these hanging chairs in the comfort of your own bedroom as a small retreat. Instead of the usual seating areas most of us are accustomed to in our bedrooms, treat yourself to a hanging chair to enjoy your evenings. To make this space even more cozy and special, add a few accessories such as a faux fur throw and a few soft plush pillows using cruelty-free alternatives such as synthetic down to curl up your feet. Still unsure? Why not try a hanging chair unit that is suspended from a support frame before investing in permanently suspending it from your ceiling.
3. KIDS ROOM/PLAYROOM
What better gift to give your child than a hanging chair for their room? They are especially fun in a playroom. Soon you will realize that the hanging chair becomes the dream gift considering the benefits it provides for the development of motor skills in different stages of a growing child. They make a nice gift to parents considering how beneficial they can be for children with sensory imbalances. Did you know that swinging chairs are used for therapy sessions for children with Autism? It’s true! Studies found that children between the ages of 4 to 8 improved coordination of motor skills significantly when adding sensory integration for therapy over a 10-week period. More reason to want to incorporate a hanging chair in your kids’ room since it has the ability to promote new learning skills without causing over stimulation. The hanging chair quickly becomes a child’s favorite personal space when encouraged to sit back and relax with a book for reading time. Now, who wouldn’t want that!
Hanging a chair in the nursery would probably be the last thing on your mind, but you’d be surprised to find some who have successfully implemented a hanging chair in their nursery to swaddle their new little bundle of joy. It can be a rewarding space where you and your loved ones can bond with your newborn. It’s definitely a conversation starter! Just think how wonderful it would be to sit back and relax in this soothing chair with it’s gentle back, forth, and side to side movement to swaddle your baby. It is definitely a spot that can trigger the inner child in us for a moment that can be magical.
5. THE OFFICE
Many of us today have an office and work from home. Why not dare to add some flare to an otherwise formal setting to brighten up your workday. Depending on your aesthetics, if you’d prefer a modern look go with an acrylic form with a few accessories to soften up the space. For a more casual look choose one made of natural fibers to do the trick then throw in a few accessories such as throws and pillows. We all need a break from time to time and what better treat than a hanging chair in your office. You could replace your desk chair for a more informal seating arrangement, but I’d prefer it tucked away in a small corner for a quick seating getaway.
So, why not give one a try? You will then see why they are a must have. Don’t forget to let us know how much you like it. In the meantime, head on over to www.VeganDesign.org Shop to check out some of the great hanging chair options now available.
