1 Curved Hanging Lounger Swing
A curved lounger swing provides full back support, and the arched shape makes it comfortable to sit in and read, chat, or simply take in the scenery. Many designs come with shade protection, making them ideal for outdoor use, although they are stylish enough for indoor use too. Curved Hanging Loungers are available in a range of designs (both with and without stands). Here are our TOP choices for prospective buyers:

A bit pricey, but one of the most beautiful swing loungers available is the Hanging Lounge Chair Wave by Exaco.

Ten Reasons To Choose A Hanging Lounger For Your Home
When it comes to buying furniture we are surrounded by many different (and exciting) possibilities. So many in fact that it can sometimes be hard to choose. Here are ten reasons why a hanging chaise lounger would be the ideal addition to your home.
- Unique seating experience
A hanging lounger offers a seating experience like nothing else in the world. It allows you to lift off from the world and feel as though you are floating in the air – and if that’s not a unique experience then we don’t know what is!
- Eye-catching design
You won’t find hanging chairs or loungers everywhere you go, they certainly aren’t a common piece of furniture. But this makes them unique, eye-catching, and always memorable. If you’re looking for a new conversation piece (that’s also perfect for relaxing in) then a hanging lounger is an excellent choice.
- Ideal for relaxing
Hanging loungers are perfect for people who need a chair that will help them unwind. The gentle rocking motion of these loungers, and the room to spread out make them unmatched when it comes to relaxation.
- Your friends will love it
You’ll love owning a hanging lounger and your guests will love you for having one too! Plus, many of our featured hanging chairs are capable of seating more than one person – making this an ideal piece of furniture for those who love to entertain – both indoors and outdoors.
There are dozens of hanging loungers on the market that are designed to hold upwards of 400lbs which means they can be used by the whole family. Ideal for watching an outdoor movie together or just looking up at the stars and telling stories. Great memories await!
- Ideal for indoor and outdoor use
Hanging loungers can be introduced to almost any room of the house. They make an attractive addition to a bedroom or study and are eye-catching as living room decor too. But hanging loungers are also ideal for outdoor spaces such as porches, balconies, or poolside.
There are even loungers made for traveling. These feature a lightweight design that makes them perfect for camping, hiking, and fishing trips. Imagine looking up at the stars from one of these loungers – now that would be pure bliss!
- Shade protection
With an outdoor hanging lounger, you don’t need to compromise on shade protection as many varieties actually come with their own canopies. These help to decrease the glare and the amount of sun that reaches the chair. This is especially useful when you’re planning on spending a few hours in the lounger which trust us, you’re going to want to do.
- They’re available with or without stands
Hanging loungers are available with or without support stands. Those that come without stands usually come with brackets and/or chains to make installation easier.
There are many different types to choose from so it’s up to you to decide which type of lounger will suit your home and your lifestyle better.
- Easy to care for
Hanging loungers are easy to look after and can last for many, many years. Just follow the manufacturers’ instructions to keep your chair in showroom condition.
- Powerful de-stressor
One of the most attractive qualities of hanging loungers is their gentle rocking motion, which many people find to be a powerful de-stressor. These types of loungers are well-suited to people looking for a unique way to retreat from the world and find total relaxation.
FAQ’s About Hanging Loungers
Buying a hanging lounger is an exciting experience but many people have questions when it comes to their purchase.
What is a hanging lounger used for?
A hanging lounger is a piece of furniture that can be placed indoors or outdoors and is designed for relaxation. Loungers allow you to recline (lie down) or sit up and these chairs can be mounted to a wall or tree or hung from a stand.
What makes hanging loungers so special?
Hanging loungers and chairs offer a unique seating experience. Because all the weight is supported from the top (rather than the bottom like most furniture), it makes you feel as though you are floating in the air. Most loungers also feature soft cushions and this combined with a gentle rocking motion is ideal for unwinding after a long day.
I live in an apartment – can I have a hanging lounger?
Of course, you can! Just like hanging chairs, there is a hanging lounger for everyone. Hanging loungers aren’t only for those with huge houses.
If you don’t want to mount your lounger or make it a permanent feature you can choose one that comes with its own stand. If your apartment has a balcony you might want to consider an outdoor lounger with a canopy to provide a little shade.
Many types of hanging loungers are made to seat more than one person, which also makes them useful for small areas like apartments.
What is the difference between a hanging chair and a hanging lounger?
Hanging chairs usually only provide seating for one person in the sitting position. With a hanging lounger, you can recline back and sometimes even lie down. Hanging loungers also come in bigger sizes, about to accommodate more people. Both loungers and chairs offer a comfortable “light as air” seating experience.
I like to travel – what’s the best type of hanging lounger for me?
Space and portability are the main factors that you would need to consider if you wanted a hanging lounger that you could travel with. You’d want to choose a hanging chair with a lightweight design that is easy to assemble and dismantle, and made from a strong durable fabric. You would also want to consider whether the lounger needs to be just big enough for you or for your family as well.
Where can I buy replacement parts and cushions for my hanging lounger?
Should you need a replacement part for your chair, it’s best to contact the manufacturer or the store you purchased the chair from. Failing this you could also visit a general hardware store who should also be able to assist.
The same would apply if you need replacement cushions or soft furnishings for your chair. These can usually be purchased without any hassle from the supplier but you could also have your own bespoke cushions designed and made by an interior designer.
What type of materials are used to make hanging chairs?
Most types of hanging chairs and loungers are made from a combination of materials such as wood, metal, fabric, and rattan.
Hanging loungers that fold away easily are usually made from aluminium which is both lightweight and strong. Heavier loungers made from wood are more well-suited for long term placement while rattan chairs are lighter and weatherproof.
Are hanging chairs and loungers safe?
You must read the instructions that come with your hanging lounger to ensure that you assemble and use it as recommended by the manufacturer.
Hanging chairs and loungers should always be used with caution, especially by unsteady or elderly persons. And because hanging chairs often have moving parts, it’s best for children not to use them without adult supervision.
How do I choose the best outdoor hanging lounger?
When it comes to any type of outdoor furniture, the first thing you’ll want to do is consider the material it’s made from. Make sure that you choose a chair that is intended for use outside – like wood or treated rattan.
You’ll also want to check whether the cushions are weatherproof of whether they need to be removed after use.
Then you’ll need to decide whether you want a free-swinging hanging lounger or whether you prefer a chair with a stand. It’s a good idea to invest in a lounger that has a canopy as this can be a lifesaver on hot days.
How do I clean my hanging lounger?
Each hanging lounger should come with a set of instructions for cleaning. Making sure that your hanging chair is clean will keep it in tip-top shape so it’s important to make a note of these cleaning instructions.
Many loungers (especially those intended for outdoor use) require minimal cleaning – sometimes just a rubdown with a damp cloth is all that’s required.
What should I look for when buying my hanging lounger?
When it comes to purchasing a hanging lounger these are some of the factors you should consider:
- Size vs. available space
- Weight Capacity
- With or without stand
- Indoor or Outdoor use
- With or without cushions
- What type of maintenance
- What type of cleaning is required
- What type of tools are needed for assembly
- Does it need to be portable
