One of the biggest benefits of egg chairs is that they are safe to stay outside all year round. Hard wearing rattan and rust proof aluminium mean that your chair will be fine come rain or shine. Cushions, however, will need to be kept indoors to stop damp or mould. You won’t need to pre-treat it either so it is a low maintenance piece of garden furniture with a high impact.
Egg chairs are completely safe. They have been specially designed to hold human weight and so there’s no need to worry about climbing in an egg chair. They are also extremely comfortable, acting like a cocoon that feels warm and cosy. Hanging chairs, with their gentle rocking motion, are both safe and very soothing.
Egg chairs are made to be stable with their base designed to take the weight of the chair and the person sitting in it. There is little reason to secure your chair and in fact, one of the great things about egg chairs is that you can easily move them from place to place either to follow the sun, the shade or to bring into an indoor room. In high winds, you may want to add some extra weight to the bottom of the chair, such as sandbags, for some extra security.
You can put an egg chair anywhere. They look just as good in a patio area as they do on elevated decking or on the lawn. They can also go inside if you have a small nook you can keep it in. As our rattan egg chairs are UV stable, they won’t fade in the sun so you can choose to put them in the sunniest spot in your garden or keep cool by positioning them in a shaded area.
Most egg chairs are made from rattan. A few may have canvas covers but generally speaking rattan is better because it can be left outside. Single egg chairs have a smaller footprint and so work well in many sized gardens and can easily be brought indoors. If you have a large family or enjoy having guests over, a double egg chair or even a triple egg chair might be better for you if you have the space.
