Sika Design is well known for beautiful hand made rattan furniture, but many of their most popular swing chair models are only suitable for indoor use. This basket swing chair without stand is specially designed for outdoors. Floating outdoor chair made of white AluRattan, it blends the simplicity of rattan furniture with the sturdiness. That’s why I can use it in the garden, on the terrace or the balcony.
I first began looking for a basket swing chair for my new outdoor space about a year ago. My husband and I had just finished renovating a small beach-front home, and it was up to me to find the right pieces for the new deck we built. I had to keep in mind that the seating I chose needed to be able to withstand the outdoor conditions, which, at the coast, can be quite harsh. I had to think carefully about what would be best in terms of design and functionality.
SIKA DESIGN OUTDOOR WICKER SWING
I looked at a number of different egg swing chairs in various materials, but none of them seemed to fit in with the space I imagined. I didn’t want a chair that would draw attention away from the view, and metal seemed too harsh. I also wanted a swing chair without stand. A neighbor suggested I look at rattan furniture by Sika Design, which led me to find this striking swing chair.
When I spotted their Renoir Exterior Hanging Swing Chair online, I could immediately picture what it would look like in my new outdoor area. A splash of white color was just what was needed. I knew that the simple design of the swing chair, from the 1950s and 1960s, would allow it to blend in perfectly, and visually enhance the area, which it did.
The basket dimensions are 44” H x 30” W x 27” D and it weighs 17.63 lb. It’s a single-seater, designed to hold the weight of one adult. It’s available in two shades (I chose the white) with different design options for the cushion too.

A FREE FLOATING OUTDOOR CHAIR
I fell in love with my basket swing chair the moment it arrived. It was without stand and very simple to assemble (my husband had it up within minutes), and once I added the pillows and tried it out, I was sure that I had made the right choice. When I’m in the chair, it feels like I’m floating, which is very relaxing. It’s my new favorite spot to sit and read or just watch the waves.
A floating chair is perfect for a veranda, patio, or deck with exposed beams because it is easy to install. I can’t imagine having anything else now hanging on my deck. Except perhaps a second one!
It’s a modern design, ideal for naturally beautiful spaces.
Each of these chairs is handmade, which means that they are crafted with the highest quality standards in mind. There’s exceptional attention to detail in both the design and the creation, and it shows in the final finished product.
