What To Consider When Purchasing A Egg Chair

Style

There are two styles: hanging egg chair and freestanding egg chair.

Unless your hanging outdoor egg chair comes with a stand, it will need installation. When it comes to hanging egg chairs, safety should always be your first priority. Professional installation ensures you use the proper mounting hardware and select a safe hanging location. Improper use can result in serious injury and damage to your ceiling.

Can't commit to a single location? Opt for a freestanding egg chair that can move throughout your space. They're a particularly great choice for a poolside, small patio, or apartment balcony. Always place the egg chair on a flat surface and avoid swinging in the egg chair, as it can cause the stand to tip over.

Materials

Outdoor patio egg chairs should be crafted from sturdy materials as they will be exposed to all the elements. Patio egg chairs are usually made out of rattan, with some made from vinyl.

Size

Before committing to egg-shaped chairs, first, measure your outdoor space. And if you live in a cold region, you will need to bring the egg chairs indoors to last longer. You will need to make sure you have the indoor space for it or find easy-to-store designs.

Weight Capacity

Different egg chairs have different weight capacities. Before purchasing, check the weight limits, especially for hanging egg chairs.
