    Outsunny Wicker Rattan Egg Chair w/Legs


    "This chair is lovely! I have wanted one for many years and I treated myself. It’s very comfortable and was so easy to put together."                                                                                                       


    "Have wanted an egg chair for ages, was worried about stability if I purchased a hanging chair. This is just right very stable and comfortable. I found the top a bit heavy when trying to bolt it to the bottom half of the chair, but I am getting old. Looks great."        

    A standing egg chair with four legs for stability, and made from metal wrapped with rattan in a teardrop design. The chair's cushions are thickly padded, and have removable, water-resistant cotton covers.

    "Stylish and comfortable. This chair was a considered purchase but I’m so glad I went for it! Looks fab on the patio and is fantastic to chill in. All the family are enjoying using it. Easy to put up and the folding feature will be useful for storage. Highly recommend."


    "I really liked this on air and ordered it with high hopes. But oh dear so heavy- I couldn't move the box and wouldn't have been able to move it round my garden. It was collected without fuss but beware if you're a single person or have a bad back or knees."

    This cocoon-shaped piece, designed to rock you lightly, is actually a folding egg chair with a collapsible design for easy storage.

    Outsunny Macrame Chair


    "Great chair, the square top brow the hanging hook makes all the difference compared to other similar type hanging chairs, it keeps the side ropes from getting in the way when using the chair. My 7 year old daughter sits in it daily after school with her book and a blanket - she loves it, I may have to get another one as we have 3 kids fighting for time on it! Great purchase, great price."


    "Nice hanging chair. Took one star off because couple of strings become loose pretty quickly, had to do a quick fix for now. Other than that no issues! Comfortable and cosy. Would recommend."                            

    A knitted hanging chair featuing boho tassels and a square support frame at the top for added stability. The chair has a maximum weight capacity of 100kg.

    Christopher Knight Home Wicker Swivel Egg Chair


    "A year later… here’s my review. I absolutely love this chair as does my daughter. It was a wonderful accent to her bedroom and complemented it so perfectly. It swivels from left to right and is a great size. Not too big and not too small for the space. Gives the best boho vibes. You won’t regret this purchase!"


    "Chair is nice, but I’m giving a 3-star rating because it did not come with an assembly manual and a small part of the chair was broken upon arrival. It’s not too noticeable, but I’m hoping this chair will stay in tact and that it won’t start falling apart."

    "Love my new egg chair. Arrived quickly, easy to assemble and so comfortable. Downside - I never want to get out of it!"


    None cited by Jarder customers, although one did take one star off for price.

    Yaheetech Rattan Swing Chair


    "Finally I’ve got my dream chair! I love it. I highly recommend this seller and product! Worth the money. Thank you for [making] my evenings cozy and comfortable!"


    "Disappointed. Bought three years ago, kept on balcony, cushion inners have disintegrated, cover is mouldy."

    Amazon's alloy steel and rattan swinging egg chair, which comes with a cushion designed with a high back rest and armrests, is designed to hold up to 120 kilos. The seat is meant for indoor or outdoor use, but shoppers point out it must be protected from the elements with a cover if it is in the garden as it is not waterproof.

    John Lewis & Partners Dante Hanging Pod Chair


    "Perfect relaxation. Love my new egg chair . Bought for a balcony, so comfortable & the gentle swing makes for a really relaxing experience. Great quality & very well constructed. Highly recommend."


    "Purchased two of these. Minor issue with some parts missing which was a bit irritating. Very comfortable and look good but only downside is that don't appear that waterproof for outside use. Only had them a week and already signs of rust from the ironwork. When it rains we get small puddles of rusty water on the patio from inside the tube. Will need to source waterproof covers otherwise will need to bring in whenever it rains."

    John Lewis' handwoven hanging pod chair is from the retailer's popular Dante range, and comes with cushions and a powder-coated steel frame tested to withstand 15 stone (95kg). Although fans have given it a 4.3-star rating on the John Lewis website, many shoppers point out that the chair is not waterproof, so you'll need a cover, too.

  • wilko charles bentley egg chair

    Charles Bentley Rattan Egg Chair


    "Perfect egg chair. Over the moon with this egg chair after scouring online for one for months & months and being let down by big designer companies! It’s easily the best looking one I’ve seen with the rattan and the colour of the cushions and it’s also very comfy. Much quicker delivery than expected too so a perfect purchase."


    "Absolutely lovely and so comfy ! a nice big size , although it’s says cushion is waterproof… it is not!"

    This single-seater hanging egg chair by Charles Bentley features an adjustable headrest and thick cushions with washable covers. There's also a safety belt to keep the seat swinging within range. Fans have given the chair a perfect 5 stars at Wilko.

  • the range foldable hanging chair

    New Hampshire Foldable Hanging Egg Chair


    "Love this egg chair! Purchased this egg chair last week and I absolutely love it. Was looking at cheaper egg chairs but the fact this folds away is a major plus, its so easy to store away at night time. It is also very comfy, so happy with this purchase!!" 


    "We love the chair, have wanted one for the last 2 years but expensive elsewhere. We laid all the bits out on the patio before making up and then it took 30 mins. My only negative so far is that I would have liked to have a bought a cover which they had one for this chair, however when the lady checked the price it was 69.99, a really silly price."

    Shoppers seem to love this egg chair from The Range, with the only complaint so far being that it doesn't come with a cover. The rocking rattan-wrapped cocoon hangs from the frame by a chain, and the set-up is foldable for easy storage. The chair is available in double-size, too.

    "Well made , very sturdy and looks pretty."


    "Expensive but the quality is excellent."

    This chair is notably smaller than full-size egg chairs - it measures 150cm H X 85cm W X 60cm L, and has a 75kg weight limit. It comes with a quick-dry cushion and stand.

  • best egg chair argos

    Argos Home Jaye Rattan Effect Egg Chair


    "Absolutely recommend to anyone wanting an egg chair. So easy to put together, very sturdy and lovely to sit in even when the sun's not out, it’s just so relaxing."


    "Get what you pay for. Nice enough to look at but don’t know if I feel as confident using it as my previously-owned, more expensive egg chair. Base was simple enough to assemble. However, found it very difficult trying to align the screws. Not all four screws are completely flush. Unsure how the screw and nut are supposed to fit into the upright but does stick out too far. Cushion seems quite comfortable. Overall, looks good but much prefer the more expensive one I have, which came fully assembled."

    Argos' hugely popular egg chair is getting amazing reviews, with a 4.8 star overall rating and a 95% 'would recommend' rate.

  • b and q egg chair with legs for garden

    Apolima Rattan Effect Egg Chair


    "Expensive, but worth it! This is far more than I wanted to pay for a single item but I haven’t been disappointed. It’s big enough for two people to snuggle and luxurious for one! It was a bit fiddly to put together but easy enough. Would recommend."


    "Issues assembling. I had this product delivered to me this am after ordering on Monday. Great service from B&Q. However I have experienced problems assembling. [The chair] comes in 3 parts with 'standard' fixings, a small alun key and a small screwdriver. The top frame seemed a little out of sync with bottom frame meaning I couldn't get the top to slide into place perfectly. This in turn meant the nuts, bolts and washers were very difficult and fiddly to put in. Managed them all in the end bar 1. Now can't get plastic cap onto final nut to finish it. Can't tighten it anymore. 

    "Great product but needs better fixings and alignment with top and bottom bits."

    Perfect as the centrepiece of a garden sanctuary, this B&Q fixed chair is super stylish - and shoppers have given it an impressive 4.8-star overall score. Plus, it's part of the larger Apolima range, so you can get other pieces, from an armchair to a foot stool, to match.

  • christopher knight standing egg chair

    Christopher Knight Home 'Malia' Chair


    "Great chair! Very stable and easy to put together. It’s big enough to curl up with a blanket but small enough to fit on a small patio."


    "Too short! Sturdy and comfortable but not for people over 5’10”! Such a bummer bc the back is just too short but could have easily been made taller. We’re trying to alter it ourselves but it’s a pain! Ugh."

    Shoppers are loving this chair by Christopher Knight - who has a Hollywood and a royal connection - which comes in three different colourways.

    Reelak Double Swing Seat


    "Beautiful. Love this it's comfortable and looks great in my garden. Instead of spending the afternoon inside on the PlayStation my adult daughter has been lying on it with a book."


    "Very cute but a little uncomfortable. This swing is beautiful but in terms of comfort it is not the best. The irons that are part of the structure make its use a little uncomfortable and it is necessary to add some pillows so as not to hurt the legs and back."

    The Reelak double swing seat is made from a polycotton blend and features fringe for a boho vibe. It has a weight capacity of about 180kg, and stand and hooks are not included.

    Display4Top Outdoor Swing


    "Worth every penny! I have four kids but this nest swing is able to hold 400lbs (28.5st). My children aged 3,8,11,20 all love this swing, as do the neighbourhood kids!"


    "Great swing with a serious (but fixable) flaw. Reviewing in September, and we have had this since April. It has been up all summer and had a ton of use and is holding up very well. My son loves it. It is a great swing.

    "Assembly was tricky but not too bad, just a bit of a pain getting the holes to line up to get the bolts through but with a bit of brute force and bracing it was fine. However in the process of assembly I got a painful cut on my hand. Looking at how this happened I realised that the ropes were tied off with cable ties (pictured) which had been roughly snipped off, leaving a very sharp burr. Almost all of them were like this around the whole circumference.

    "It was quite easy to file these down to remove the sharp edges but wouldn't have wanted my son playing on it before I had done this."  

    This affordable Amazon outdoor seat has earned hundreds of 5-star customer reviews.

  • wayfair striped macrame egg chair

    Freeport Park Hanging Chair


    "This was my buy of the year! It’s been used every single day and it’s the most relaxing way to spend an evening with a book. Really fantastically priced and very sturdy."


    "Cushion filling flattens easily so will replace with something a little more supportive. The children found it comfier as a little small for an adult."

    Wayfair's striped woven macrame hanging chair, which has a 4.6-star overall rating, is for indoor or outdoor use. The hammock is made from 100% cotton, and has a weight capacity of 120kg. Stand not included.
