Every home can benefit from a touch of whimsy. One of the most fun pieces of furniture I’ve seen cropping up in homes a lot more lately are hanging chairs (or indoor swings).
This might sound odd at first, but there are actually a plethora of options for indoor swings ranging from the ultra modern to the more rustic. These chairs not only add a nice dose of charm to a space, but they are also very functional in a small space to provide more floor and visual space.
Kids aren’t the only ones who love indoor swings. Adults find them surprisingly comfortable and relaxing, as well as a very stylish alternative to a traditional side chair. Here are 10 examples of indoor swings that show the surprising versatility and charm of this unique seating.
