Okay, so I’m not really taking names, but I am hanging chairs.
As you may have guessed from my recent posts, I’m on a mission to complete some projects in my house. Why I picked the middle of summer to do this is beyond my own comprehension. However, things are getting finished, so I not going to complain.
In addition to putting a few things on the walls in my living room / office (which I’m making progress on), there are a few other small tasks I wanted to tackle. The first one is filling up a corner behind the island in my office. I went back and forth about what to put in this area, but couldn’t get the thought of a hanging chair out of my head.
Hanging chairs have been popping up all over the blogosphere lately, and I was ready to embrace this trend. Let’s take a look.
I think one of the first spaces I saw one indoors was via Emily Henderson (my design goddess).
I’ve also spotted hanging chairs on A Beautiful Mess a few times.
And Oh Happy Day.
Despite my initial indecision, the choice was really simple. A hanging chair in the corner of my office was the solution to my empty space.
While this corner is still lacking artwork and a big punch of color, I’m totally in love with my hanging chair.
I ordered this one from Serena & Lily. Thus far, I’ve been extremely impressed with the quality. And, as you can imagine, it arrived in a huge shipping box., probably the biggest I’ve ever received.
I used a heavy duty eye-hook to hang the chair from the ceiling. After using a stud finder to locate a stud, I drilled a hole and screwed the hook in. The chair included a rope, so in less than fifteen minutes, my chair was hung and feeling amazingly sturdy. I assume there is a weight limit, but the chair has no problem supporting me.
I’m hoping to style it up a bit with a more vibrant pillow and maybe a sheepskin throw. I’d also like some sort of small table and lamp under the window. I’m on the hunt!
All-in-all I’m super excited about my new hanging chair. I can’t wait to snuggle in it with a cup of coffee and my laptop in the morning or a glass of wine and a magazine in the evening. It’s the perfect little spot.
What do you think of the hanging chair trend? Would you take a swing?
Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!
