Let's be honest - as kids, we all wanted an egg chair. All we ever knew were sofas and chairs, and suddenly we were shown a world of new possibilities. Remember rocking on that egg chair for hours? We do too. Happy times. Now that we are all adults, we can decorate our very own spaces in any way we wish- and we are excited to say that egg chairs are back in fashion. Therefore, we can live out our childhood dreams and bring indoor egg chairs back into our homes. Hey, egg chairs are so hip that there are even egg chairs designed for our pets.
The egg chair was first designed in 1958 for the lobby of the SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen by architect Arne Jacobsen. Of course, the Danish had a hand in this amazing design: Scandinavia is the place for interior design. Are we surprised?
But egg chairs can be difficult to style into a space, especially an indoor one. What is the best egg chair for you? Do you want a natural-looking chair, or something a bit more modern? Something small or a two-seater egg chair? We've got an egg-cellent guide to the best egg chairs for your indoor space.

Review: "Well...the company certainly protects their product for transit... not a bad thing for us, the customers, who, want our purchase undamaged. Lots of unpacking. The product is superb. Very large egg chair and very comfortable. I bought it for outside but not being a sun lover I decided to put it up indoors by a window... a great spot for relaxing and reading. I’m very pleased with this superior product and it is exact to the seller's description. Easy to assemble and looks great. One thing I did was to purchase a single summer weight 4.0 tog duvet and matching cover (for my room) and place it under the cushions...just adds a bit more comfort, along with pillows of our choice."

Review: "This chair is wonderful. Real rattan (not plastic), sturdy, attractive frame, very nice, ample cushions. Incredibly comfortable and great value. The 'holes' for putting your hand out of work really well (for getting to your drink/book etc). I rarely review Amazon stuff but this has really impressed me."
Dawsons Living Vienna Hanging Egg Chair (Grey)
The best budget-friendly indoor egg chair
Egg chairs can be on the expensive side, so if you're looking for a cheaper alternative that will still bring you all the great egg-tastic goodness of an egg chair, Dawsons has got your back. This Vienna Hanging Egg Chair is currently under £200, so perfect for those on a budget.

• The padded pillow is moveable so you can find your perfect position.
• Its smaller size means it can fit into tighter spaces.
• Delivery is done directly with the company instead of managed by Amazon, so it may take longer to arrive.
Review: "I bought this single swing egg chair as a temporary measure because I ordered a sofa in my new house but it takes 12 weeks to come... This chair though is staying! It looks incredible, very stylish even indoors, very sturdy and it's a cosy nest for my 5-year-old daughter and me. I was very cautious with ordering something like this online but I can absolutely recommend this one. It was easy to assemble with good instructions and was delivered very fast. Very happy!"
Dawsons Living Vienna Hanging Double Egg Chair
The best double indoor egg chair
Sometimes lazing on an egg chair can get solitary. Luckily for you, double egg chairs exist, and Dawson has pulled through with another amazing indoor egg chair on Amazon. No more sitting on your lonesome. 🙌
Size: 138 x 97 x 195 cm
• The hanging chain is adjustable, meaning it's is adaptable to different heights.
• It is described as a small double, so perfect if you don't have room for a large double chair.
• Reviews describe it as being extremely comfortable to lounge in.
• This is not comparable to a swing set, so will not rock backwards and forwards in the same way.
Review: "Glad I took the plunge (after 3 years) and bought this chair/swing. Yes, it doesn't swing fully, as it is not a swing, more like a suspended chair, but we are happy with that. I was worried it will not be comfortable enough as I am tall (6') but didn't need to worry. The cushions are nice and thick and you can change the height of the chair by about 4" by adjusting the chains. It is more compact in size as opposed to classic double swings so better suited for smaller gardens/patios."
Divine Style Premium Collapsible (Easy Storage) Rattan, Rope & Steel Hanging Egg Chair
The best collapsible indoor egg chair
Sometimes we want to lounge in our egg chair, but sometimes we need it to move the heck out of the way. If you've got guests coming over, or need more space in your home ASAP, a collapsible egg chair might be for you.
Size: 102 x 94 x 201 cm
• The Divine Style is fully collapsible for easy storage and transportation.
• You can adjust the height of the seat and includes an adjustable headrest.
• Both cushions' zipped covers can be washed and are made from thick strong polypropylene canvas material.
• It only comes in one colour (grey).
Review: "Been wanting an egg chair for a couple of years but never really found one that suited me until this one! Very easy to assemble, the legs just click into place (no screws), the pole to hang the basket off only needed one large screw & then there’s one you pop in at the top to hang the spring off! The seat comes folded & you just pull it out & fix another four screws to secure the basket so it does not refold when sat in it! All tools provided! Very sturdy & fits in my dining room very well as it’s not as bulky as others I have seen! Adjustable head cushion & all covers can be removed for washing very easily due to having zips! Came in one box & very cleverly packaged & well protected! I would highly recommend it! I love my hanging egg chair! Thank you!"

• It's Habitat; you can't go wrong.
