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.

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.
