Stylish and comfy, hanging egg chairs, also known as pod chairs or teardrop chairs, are a great addition for both indoor and outdoor schemes. Available in a range of styles and colours, egg chairs are ideal for lazy days and for creating your own mini haven away from the hustle and bustle. Whether it’s swaying in the sun or snuggling up inside with a book, there will be an egg chair for you and your home!

Rattan effect hanging egg chairs are especially popular thanks to their hardwearing material, meaning you can use them outdoors as well as indoors, without the worry of weathering effects. If you want an egg chair for just inside though, you could opt for a more delicate material such as rope or wicker.

Hanging egg chairs aren’t the only option either, if you’d prefer four feet firmly on the ground, there is a whole host of egg chair options for you too. Here are our favourite egg chairs for sale at the moment…
