Swing It Like George Of The Jungle-Hanging Chairs For Kids

Let your children go wild in the safety of your home in a jungle-themed bedroom complete with a swing (it’s the safer alternative to swinging on vines!). Look for a camp-style bed, forest-themed wallpaper, turfgrass flooring, and a hammock, as seen in this bedroom. To complement the jungle aesthetics, opt for a distressed wooden study table with an attached cabinet that ensures ample storage. Children will enjoy staying clutter-free in their indoor jungle and when it’s break time, they’ll hop onto the hammock. You can get a hanging baby swing chair for as low as 500 INR. For adults, the price of a hanging swing chair can range between 500 INR to 10,000 INR or more.

Hanging Rattan Swing Chair: Jazz Up The Balcony

If you are wondering about exciting ideas to explore with a humble rattan swing, go for rattan furniture as a theme for your outdoor seating. In the design below, rattan is used for the lamp shade and sofa set in the balcony, which complements the wooden hanging swing chair. The wooden table with multiple drawers also adds to the natural rattan look. 

This theme is compatible with all spaces — yes, you may set this up indoors or on the porch. The rattan swing is used as a hanging porch chair swing in many homes. Besides being easy on the wallet, this rattan theme is environment-friendly, so it’s a winning idea. And if you’d like to explore outdoor furniture further, read this blog.

Go Biophilic With A Hanging Swing Chair For The Balcony

Similar to a rattan theme, going biophilic is another trend many homeowners wish to explore. We love how the wooden hanging swing chair is used as accent furniture in this elegant biophilic balcony with a boho touch. The cane swing, potted plants, vertical turfgrass garden and carpet help stay connected with nature. You can also add some hanging planters to a space such as this. Like our previous suggestion, this trend can be extended to other indoor areas as the swing is easy to move around. Explore more on biophilic design ideas here.

Turn Your Swing Into A Reading Spot 

Another clever use of the swing chair is as a reading spot. This is useful when you have an exclusive reading corner, such as the balcony, in this design. The book rack, open shelves, drawers, and floating tea table make the spot cosy. Add some cushions and throw pillows to the mix, making your reading spot as comfortable as possible. When looking for a change of venue, shift onto the storage bench with additional racks. Try these suggestions for more reading room ideas.
