SHOULD I BUY IT OR NOT?
Here are 4 reasons why the Swingasan® hanging chairs should be on top of your furniture list;
1. Easy to clean
With time, the chairs are bound to gather some dust and will, therefore, need cleaning. The Swingasan® hanging chairs don’t need special cleaning detergents. A soft, damp cloth is enough to do the job. The iron frames are rust resistant so you don’t have to worry about water causing damage to it. It saves you time to focus on other things. A simple wipe is enough to get its shine back.
2. Strong enough for heavy weights
Your outdoor experience can be ruined by insects that keep crawling onto your laid-out picnic mat. That’s why most people are now going for hanging chairs for their front gardens. If you are a bit on the heavier side, the Swingasan® hanging chair can handle it. Its frames are made from sturdy wrought iron that can withstand weights of up to 275 pounds.
3. The perfect chair for lounging weekends
The airy, open-weave back, side drink holder and the canopy shade that comes with the chair is exactly what you need for a slow relaxing weekend. It is relaxing and lets your mind wander off. It is perfect for unwinding after a hard week’s job. This is a guaranteed mood changer. Enjoy your alone time and allow your mind to drift off to every fantasy imaginable. If you love quiet weekends in the yard, then this chair should be on your wishlist.
4. Make an impression on your guests
Everyone wants to make an impression on their house guests. Some will prepare amazing dishes, others will crack your ribs with funny jokes. Sometimes though, it all comes to naught. But with the Swingasan® hanging chairs, you are guaranteed to leave an impression on your visitors. The hand woven hanging chairs have an aesthetically admirable style that gives the home a classy and trendy look.
1. Cushion and the stand not included
For all its amazing features, the disadvantage to the Swingasan® hanging chairs is that they don’t come with their stands and cushions. Instead, they are sold separately in case you are interested. This can create an additional budget and can be a turnoff when you are limited for funds. However, this could be an opportunity to put those cushions that you have stacked up in your linen cupboards to use.
2. We recommend buying a separate stand
Pier 1 Imports had the Swingasan recall for products purchased prior to January 2016. According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, the chair and stand may become unstable during use and/or have defective suspension hardware, posing a fall hazard. Clicking the link above, you can see, what particular models were included in this recall.
The recall was in 2016 and all those unsafe products are not available in the market, but we still recommend suspending the basket with one of these excellent suspension kits or buying different stand. Here you can find our recommendation for The 10 Best Hammock Chair Stands.
3. Limited outdoor use
Although they are in the category “outdoor furniture”, we recommend not to leave it outside very often. The frame seemed to hold, but the wiring unravels and outdoor stand is getting corrosion after two seasons. Otherwise, although made from synthetic material, the basket chair looks as beautiful, that it can be hung in your living room in front of the fireplace.
Give your front yard the exquisite makeover it deserves with Swingasan hanging chair. For couples, you can order the Swingasan Double Mocha Hanging Chair. It is perfect for a romantic evening or lazy weekends.
