I’ll say it upfront: 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. Whether it be indoors or out, hanging chairs are a great way to add character to any space. I mean, who doesn’t love the idea of their own little relaxing nook? To start your search off right, 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.

Note: While most of these chairs can easily be supported with a stand, 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 or your friendly neighborhood Task Rabbit.
