There is something awesome about sitting on a patio, lazily swinging back and forth in comfortable hanging chairs. It is so much more relaxing then sitting in a stationary chair. If you don’t have a place to hang one, there is a wide selection of stands that will support hanging chairs so it is easy to include one as part of your patio decor. To convince you, we’ve included these 25 beautiful outdoor designs that we believe some of the most comfortable. Read on for images and sources.
Amazing Metal Hanging Chair Designs for your Patio
Metal is such a great choice of material when it comes to creating sculptural furniture and the support for this wicker disc seat is no exception. While the curly cue metal is not exactly like the curling fronds in the wood panel behind it, the similarity makes this a well thought out vignette. Source
This beautiful modern hanging lounger is EP coated which is the same treatment used on the chassis of motorcars. This makes it perfect for a wet climate and since the cushions are sun and water resistant, they too, can easily be left outdoors no matter what the weather. But what makes it so comfortable is its ergonomic design – you even have legs support. StudioStirling
StudioStirling also has this fun Basket Of Circles which much like the first chair takes on a bubble aesthetic and who wouldn’t want to sit in a seat of bubbles?
Of all the StudioStirling hanging chairs, this Leaf is my favorite. It lets my imagination soar, creating a story of being a garden fairy taking a nap on a leaf in a tree. Just add a long cushion and you’ll be perfectly comfortable.
This double swing bed called Duality includes teak wood in its Stainless Steel framework and comes with a Sunbrella covered quick dry foam lounge cushion. At 5-1/2ftx3ft it is not for a small patio, but if you got the space, you got comfort. Trinity
The Gravity Garden Hanging Chair was designed by Technical Emotions to be an elegant addition to any patio. While not really big enough for two, two could certainly cozy up in one of these luxury hanging seats. Roberti
Even when looking closely at the details of the Gravity Garden Hanging Chair by Roberti, the attention to detail is obvious. The rope that is used to suspend the chair is Nautic Rope.
Hanging Chairs for Two
While it might be fun to cozy up with a partner on a hanging seat, when friends or family drop by, a hanging chair built for two is definitely the answer. They are perfect to have a little chat as you sit in a very comfortable straight position. Source
Nothing can be more comfortable than a hanging sofa that can double as a day bed. The traditional frame has been made more contemporary by coiling rope around the suspension chains. Source
The Dedon Swingrest Hanging Lounger is big enough for the whole family to hang out in. Designed by Daniel Pouset, the basket shaped bottom has a 180 degree rotating table coming up from its outer circumference – perfect for a book, a drink or a place to put your glasses while you take a nap. This is probably one of the most relaxing hanging furniture designs we’ve seen. Dedon

Pier One also has the Willow Singasan, named for its rainbow of vertically colored stripes, and the design is one of most comfortable ones as it provides great back support.
Hanging Chairs with Color Cushion
While Pier One offers a couple of color popping designs, they also offer a selection of neutral hanging seats that are perfect for adding a pop of color via the seat cushions, such as this Seahorse Singasan.
