Last year saw us take socialising out into our gardens more than ever before, placing an emphasis on fun and easy ways to turn your outdoor space into the socialising hub of your friend group (hello garden bars).
Garden furniture in particular saw a boost in interest as al fresco dining and socialising became the norm, something we can expect to see plenty more of in 2021, too. But one statement piece of garden furniture in particular really caught on, with both celebrities and us mere mortals alike: the hanging egg chair.
Loved by celebrities including Reese Witherspoon, Stacey Solomon and Mrs Hinch, the hanging egg chair provides not only a comfy outdoor respite for one (doesn’t it just scream reading nook?), their chic oval shape and large size make for a modern addition to any garden, whether you’ve acres or a small postage stamp of turf.
The best part is that, while there are plenty that cost in the region of £300+, multiple retailers have cottoned on to the trend, including budget brands such as Aldi and B&M, with much lower price points.
While it might feel a little early (and chilly) to be hanging out in your garden just yet, this is the perfect time to invest in some key pieces of garden furniture to make sure you’re ready to go right from the beginning of al fresco season.
Here are all of the best value hanging egg chairs that are available to buy so far this year…
Where to buy the hanging egg chair
Siena Hanging Egg Chair, £175, B&M (available soon)
After Mrs Hinch shared a pic of her B&M egg chair on her Instagram Stories last summer, there was no stopping it from selling out. Thankfully, B&M has brought it back again this year and it will also come as a larger Snuggle Hanging Egg Chair for £275.
New for 2021 is this slimmer design from B&M, perfect if your garden is on the smaller side.
The circular design on this chair looks an awful lot like Stacey Solomon’s (above).
This slatted style is also available from Studio and has gained many positive reviews online from happy customers who have used it both inside and outside the home.
A little on the pricier side, but still much cheaper than most on the market, Argos’s version boasts a grey rattan effect and sturdy metal frame.
