Hammocks are so incredibly comfortable but they tend to take up a lot of space. That’s the reason why they usually find their place in a garden. But in the form of a hammock chair, they’ve been adapted to fit in indoor spaces as well. A hammock chair is a bit more compact but just as enjoyable and relaxing. And from an aesthetic point of view, it can be a great addition to a casual living room, a bedroom, a kid’s room or even to your home office.

They bring coziness anywhere you place them.  Suspended from ceilings, or as a free-standing indoor hanging chair, it is a real highlight for every room. The soft back of the seat fully supports the head and neck, so you can recline back very comfortably. It is so relaxing that you are able to nap in it!

Hammock chairs are made of cotton or fabric and therefore wonderfully soft to the touch. They are machine-washable and very easy to clean.

If you’re still not sure you are ready to get one, here are the 7 reasons why to hang a hammock chair indoors.

Hanging Chair for Bedroom

So if you don’t have enough space in your living room, then think about what would it look like if you had a bedroom with hanging chair? Maybe there is a bare corner you thought was unusable that would be the perfect place for a comfy bedroom chair swing. Your bedroom wouldn’t be just a place to sleep, but rather your favorite place where you can read, listen to music and enjoy the book.  So why not?

Whether you live in a small city apartment with a small bedroom or a grand country pile with a huge one, you can make it looks beautiful.  Bedroom design doesn’t have to mean a complete redecoration. Sometimes a tweak, like new lighting, a change of art or a new fluffy hammock chair can make a dramatic difference.

The bedroom is more than any other room an indicator of your personal style. If not, then it’s time to change it. It is often the neglected room in your house because nobody else sees it — but it should be the exact opposite because it’s your own space where you get to recharge, where you sleep, where you go to meditate, where you go when you simply want to be alone and escape everyday life.

The fact that the bedroom is our personal safe haven where we can be ourselves at our leisure is also what makes it an ideal room for a hanging chair. No matter what style you prefer, there are so much different styles of indoor hanging chairs that you surely can find a perfect one for your bedroom.

If you prefer a minimalist lifestyle, a transparent bubble chair with a delightfully simple design would be perfect for your minimal living room with a crisp straight line. This indoor hanging ball chair is better without a stand. Hang it from a beam in the corner of the living room and you’ll feel subtle and soothing weightlessness in your own personal orb. Just like in a bubble.

The original bubble chair was designed by Eero Aarnio in 1968 in Finland.  He wanted the chair to float like a “bubble” and be completely transparent. To get this effect the chair should be hung from the ceiling and not from a stand.

The chair is often used to symbolize the 1960’s period and has featured in many movies.

The original bubble chair is distributed by Adelta and costs nearly 5000 $.  A good replica of the original is available for much less money.

It is extremely simple to move compared to your other furnishings. As a result, you don’t have to choose just one room to keep your indoor hanging chair in – you can enjoy it in any room and at any time.
