Hanging macrame chairs are the perfect addition to your garden

If there’s one piece of furniture that has taken over gardens across Britain in the past couple of years, it’s the hanging egg chair. Many of our favourite retailers like Aldi, B&M, Argos and Studio are expected to release new designs of the statement garden furniture ahead of the spring and summer, such was the chair’s popularity last year.

But this year, you might want to also consider another style of outdoor chair; the hanging macrame chair. Previously only found on the likes of online retail sites such as Etsy, Wayfair and Urban Outfitters, budget retailers have also started to release their own versions that cost much less.

The latest affordable designs for 2022 come from George Home at Asda, and we’re shocked at just how good the prices are.

The first design (above) is more traditional, made from soft, durable polycotton and a steel frame. While the second design (below) is perhaps a better option for those who require more back support from their seat. It includes two matching polycotton cushions, but both chairs have been designed for use with George’s Hanging Chair Stand.

B&M’s hanging macrame chair costs even less at just £30, so it’s a steal compared to alternatives available on the market, which can retail anywhere between £70-200. In plain black, it’s a simple design that would make for a stunning boho-style addition to the garden – all you need is a tree or any other sturdy enough overhanging structure than can support the weight of a person.

Vancouver Hanging Chair – Black, £30, B&M

Not got the outside space to accommodate for a hanging macrame chair? No worries, the B&M website states it can also be fixed to a ceiling (just check it can support the weight first!).

Whether inside or outside, a hanging macrame chair provides a comfortable reading nook and looks great accessorised with a couple of brightly coloured weather-resistant scatter cushions. We can see a lot of garden-based socialising happening this summer (fingers crossed for good weather!), so now is the perfect time to make a few choice purchases to spruce up your outdoor space.

As you can see, B&M’s macrame chair looks very similar to one currently being sold by Urban Outfitters, but with £165 knocked off the price tag.
