I'll say it up front: Hanging chairs are not for everyone. However, if you're willing to take a chance on a piece that's a little over-the-top, the effect is eye-catching and undeniably fun. To start your search, we've rounded up nine stylish options that will take your home decor to new heights—and that you'll want to hang out in all day long.

If you're going to hang a chair from the ceiling, you'll definitely want to make sure you secure it properly. Follow eHow's simple instructions for anchoring from a ceiling joist. If you're still not confident that you won't end up on your bum, hire a handyman.

How This Works

Every week we research new product categories and bring our final picks into the office, where we haggle and decide which ones make the final list. Everything is based on quality, appearance and price. These are what we could choose for our own home.
