Our Pick Of The Best Hanging Basket Chairs
If you haven't yet relaxed in a hanging basket chair you don't know what you're missing, so take a look at what's available and make your selection.
I have always been a bit restless when it comes to sitting down and relaxing, I just find it difficult to stay in one place for too long. Having purchased a couple of hanging basket chairs for the garden I cannot express how it has changed my life. Now I love sitting out in the garden with my Kindle, swinging gently too and fro in the shade or sunshine whenever it takes my fancy.
Hanging basket chairs are great for outdoors in the garden where they can be placed in a shady spot or underneath a garden umbrella. They are super-comfortable and relaxing. It's like having your very own patio swing where you can sit and relax and watch the kids play by the pool while sharing cocktails with your friends or having a braai with family.
There are all different styles of hanging basket chairs out there and we took a selection of the best.
I purchased my two Lucia Hanging Chairs online from cielo.co.za during the 2020 Lockdown. I couldn't wait for them to arrive once the lockdown was lifted and have spent most of my time sitting outdoors - summer and winter - relaxing in my hanging basket chair. I particularly like this style because it is more open than many other basket styles. The only thing I'm not fond of is that it isn't woven from basket material but rather a vinyl strap and I have to wonder about the lifespan of this if it is outdoors in the sun for too long.
