10 Easy Pieces: Hanging Rattan Chairs


10 Easy Pieces: Hanging Rattan Chairs

April 15, 2015

World’s most cheerful chair? Here’s a roundup of our rattan-inspired favorite swings (with a few fabric options for hammock lovers).

Take note that natural rattan is best when it’s kept in a dry location–perfect for hanging on a covered porch or indoors from a ceiling beam (bring that summer feeling inside). Want to hang a chair from a branch in the garden? Synthetic rattan to the rescue. Several of our selections are made from weather-resistant fibers.
