Egg chairs have long been the go-to outdoor furniture item on everyone's list, but the tide has changed, and moon chairs are in.
Interior design experts Furniturebox has found there has been almost a 500% increase in searches for moon chairs over the last year.
Unlike the egg chair, which is a cocoon-style seat, and often comes as a hanging designto seat one or two people, the moon chair is a wider and more open design.

Explaining the difference between the two, Furniturebox's Product Development lead, Laura Rich, said: "The moon chair is set to be the stand-out garden furniture piece for summer 2022.
"While egg chairs are still very popular, we’re seeing a rise in demand for the new moon chair as a fresh take on stand-out garden furniture. Unlike the egg chair, the moon chair allows users to fully bask in the sun - with no overhead covering blocking potential light. The lack of surrounding frame also makes the moon chair more inviting to couples looking to cosy up on their moon chair together in the sunshine - making it a more versatile seat than the classic egg chair.”
Whether you are upgrading your existing outdoor space for the summer, or investing in seating for your balcony, we have found a selection of moon chairs not to miss.
