Hanging around the house just got a little cooler. Popping up everywhere, from Instagram feeds to high-end design magazines, are hanging egg chairs. This seating option, which is from the 1970s, can add whimsy and bohemian flair to a more traditional space. Blogger, decorator and product stylist Holli Rodrigues recently added the Kambree resin wicker hanging chair by Island Bay ($299.98, hayneedle.com ) to her back porch to help transform it into a spot she calls a “vintage chic eclectic retreat.” She chronicled the small space’s dramatic redesign over the course of six weeks on her blog, Bees ’N Burlap. The spacious chair is now one of her favorite places to read, relax and listen to music. “I’ve called permanent dibs on it!” she wrote on her blog. Rodrigues’s chair is still available online. If you’re looking for a slightly different look, here are some of our favorites.
