Swinging in your Outdoor Egg Chair, sippin’ fruity drinks with umbrellas, shaded from the sun and quietly cocooned and insulated from the ruckus of life… Jimmy Buffet could have written that scene. But he’s got no monopoly on a life of leisure, and no trademark on Bahama mama imagery like some people do on a certain Egg Chair.
Egg-Shaped & Comfortable
But what does all that “which came first” business have to do with us? We’re here for the saltwater (or chlorine) breezes and the shade (or sun) and for snuggling into the supremely cozy coocoon of an outdoor egg chair with a book and a drink as we prepare for some quality respite. An exterior egg chair is just what the doctor ordered.
As far as I’m concerned, nothing beats the comforting surround and winging style of an egg chair for creating a cozy outdoor space. These ovoid, cocoon-like seats, built with weather-tough materials like wicker, rattan, or steel, and softed by comfortable and durable fabric cushions, have become the essential modern outdoor leisure furniture. Outdoor egg chairs deliver, like the egg itself, an elegantly effortless-seeming blend of comfort, strength, and functionality. In this article, we’ll take a barefoot but still buttoned-up stroll through the various types of outdoor egg chairs, with the hope of helping you find the perfect nest for your relaxation needs.
The hanging egg chair is a statement piece that demands attention. Its simple, sleek, and modern design adds a touch of sophistication to any outdoor setting. Whether you opt for a classic white or go bold with vibrant colors, this chair is sure to become the envy of your neighbors and the go-to spot for Instagram-worthy moments.
Wicker Outdoor Egg Chairs
A wicker outdoor egg chair is a delightful combination of timeless aesthetics and comfort. Typically designed with a durable steel frame, these chairs are wrapped in intricately woven synthetic wicker, providing both sturdiness and a touch of rustic elegance. The wicker material is not only weather-resistant, making it suitable for outdoor use, but it also lends a warm and inviting feel to any space. The cocoon-like shape of the chair offers a cozy retreat, while a cushioned seat enhances the comfort level.
With a classic design and resilient construction, a wicker outdoor egg chair , either planted squarely on the ground or swinging gently in the breeze, becomes a charming focal point in any garden, patio, or deck, inviting you to relax in style amidst the beauty of the outdoors.
Rattan Outdoor Egg Chairs
A rattan outdoor egg chair effortlessly combines bohemian charm with comfort, making it a standout piece in any outdoor setting. Crafted with a sturdy steel or aluminum frame, these chairs feature a distinctive egg-shaped seat intricately woven with natural rattan fibers. Rattan provides a warm and earthy texture, adding a touch of natural beauty to your outdoor space. The material is not only aesthetically pleasing but also durable and weather-resistant, ensuring longevity in various climates. With its cocoon-like design, a rattan outdoor egg chair cradles you in comfort, offering a cozy retreat for relaxation. The open weave allows for airflow, keeping you cool on warm days, while a cushioned seat enhances the overall comfort level. Whether suspended or grounded, a rattan egg chair is a stylish and inviting addition to your patio, deck, or garden, creating a laid-back atmosphere for unwinding in style.
Nest Egg Chairs
For those of us (you know who I’m talking about!) who love to share their relaxation in maximally luxe and cozy style, to wit, for all my Fluff Daddies out there, the nest egg chair (also known as a double egg chair, but I find that name just a wee bit limiting) has your name on it.
These big comfy outdoor chairs elevate outdoor lounging to a whole new level of comfort and intimacy. Oversized marvels of relaxation, outdoor nest egg chairs are designed to accommodate two people or more, creating a shared space for cozy conversations or simply enjoying the outdoors together. Typically constructed with a robust steel frame and featuring an expansive egg-shaped seat, these chairs often come with plush cushions for added comfort. The generous dimensions and thoughtful design allow for a comfortable seating experience for both individuals, making it a perfect spot for couples looking to unwind side by side. The cocoon-like enclosure adds an extra layer of privacy, creating a serene haven amidst nature. With its roomy design and the ability to foster a sense of togetherness, a double or nest outdoor egg chair becomes the go-to spot for creating cherished moments outdoors.
Hanging Egg Chair: Swinging in Style
Don’t let the unconventional design fool you; the hanging egg chair is all about comfort. Its cozy cushioning and ergonomic shape provide the perfect nest for you to unwind and let your worries float away. The gentle rocking motion adds an extra layer of relaxation, making it the ultimate spot to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
A hanging outdoor egg chair is the epitome of relaxation and style, suspended in the air to create a unique and cozy seating experience. Typically crafted with a sturdy metal or steel frame, these chairs feature an egg-shaped seat made from materials like rattan or synthetic wicker. Suspended by a chain or rope, they allow for a gentle swaying motion, adding an extra element of tranquility to your outdoor retreat. The enclosed design of the chair provides a sense of privacy, making it an ideal spot for quiet contemplation or reading a book. Many hanging egg chairs come with plush cushions, enhancing the comfort level while you enjoy the soothing sensation of being gently cradled above the ground. With their chic design and ability to create a personal oasis, hanging outdoor egg chairs are a perfect addition to any patio, porch, or garden space.
Versatility at its Finest
One of the best things about the hanging egg chair is its versatility. It effortlessly adapts to various outdoor spaces, whether you have a sprawling garden or a compact balcony. Hang it from a sturdy tree branch, a pergola, or even a dedicated stand. Its compact size also makes it a great option for those with limited outdoor space. The double nest egg chair may be bigger but there’s still plenty of options for where it can go. Plunk a nest egg chair down on the back patio, the pool deck, or even lug it down to the beach if you’ve got a couple of helping hands.
Worried about the elements? Fear not! The hanging egg chair is built to withstand the great outdoors. Crafted from durable materials like rattan or synthetic wicker, it can handle a bit of rain or shine. Just make sure to bring in the cushions during heavy downpours to keep them in tip-top shape.
So it is – the outdoor egg chair, your ticket to outdoor relaxation and style. With its playful design, unbeatable comfort, and versatility, it’s no wonder this chair has become a favorite among outdoor enthusiasts. Whether you’re looking to create a cozy reading nook, a chill-out zone, or simply a spot to enjoy the fresh air, the hanging egg chair is the exact thing to elevate your outdoor experience.
