  1. It cannot be used outdoors
    This is a hanging chair for a bedroom, library, living room and any other indoor space use. The material is not resistant to harsh weather elements including UV light and rain. That means that installing it outdoors will lead to damage within no time.
  2. Installation is difficult
    First of all, it does not come with the tools required for this installation meaning that you will have to get them yourself. The manufacturers also recommend that you use a professional to set it up for safety purposes. Anyway, here you can find some excellent suspension sets. And here you can find hanging chair stands, but for aesthetic reasons, we recommend to suspend it from the ceiling.
