Hanging around

Hanging chairs are the very latest in gardening style: not only beautiful sculptural pieces that make your garden bang on trend, but also incredibly comfortable. These are chairs you sink into, enveloping you in a little cocoon of luxury. 

A cool, modern option is a hand-crafted wooden spiral in birch ply, folding flat when not in use (great for  city gardens). 'Nest' style baskets like pods come in wicker or simple cotton: fill with cushions and curl up inside with a book. Shell chairs in patterned metal or wicker make sleek, sophisticated statements under the dappled shade of a tree, while hammock chairs made from high quality cotton are great for more informal gardens.

To suspend your chair, one practical and flexible option is a free-standing frame. But you can also hang them from a strong tree branch, the rafter of a pergola or a bracket attached to the house or an arch: just make sure your chosen support is strong enough to take your weight and that of the chair.

Please ask a member of the Lakeside team for more information and advice about hanging seats for your garden.
