I first began looking for a 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.
DESIGN AND FUNCTIONALITY
I looked at a number of different 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. A neighbor suggested I look at rattan furniture by Sika Design which led me to find this striking swing chair.
When I spotted the 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 and I knew that the elemental design of the chair would allow it to blend in perfectly, and visually enhance the area, which it did.
My Renoir Exterior Hanging Swing Chair 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 FLOATING CHAIR FOR AN OUTDOOR SPACE
I fell in love with my chair the moment it arrived. It was very simple to assemble (my husband had it up within minutes) and once I added the pillows and tried it out I was certain 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 an outdoor space, I can’t imagine having anything else now that my chair is installed. Except perhaps a second one!
