16 Indoor Swings for Adults That Are Both Fun and Functional
It’s hard to beat that peaceful, easy feeling that comes from hanging out in a hammock or a swing, so it’s a wonder no one thought to bring ‘em indoors sooner. Well, the time to break with convention is now, friends: Indoor swings for adults, both hanging and standing, are a hot ticket item and let’s just say it’s a trend we can get behind. Here are our top picks for the chicest and coziest swinging chairs that money can buy.
1. Knotted Melati Chair
With its intricate macrame design and versatile, neutral color, this handcrafted hanging chair has a dainty and feminine aesthetic that works well in nearly any space. Plus, the sturdy iron frame ensures folks of all sizes will be sitting pretty.
2. Macrame Swing Hammock
This macrame statement piece is made of hypoallergenic, natural materials and can handle up to a whopping 330 pounds without incident. It’s also oh-so romantic looking, whether you hang it indoors or out.
3. Brazilian Hammock Chair
This hammock chair is woven from supple but durable colorfast cotton, and constructed to last for many years of lounging. Word on the street is that it also feels downright dreamy, providing a feeling of weightlessness that’s just right for an afternoon snooze.
4. Juana Hammock
Fuss-free, sturdy and comfy—hang this fringed cotton number in your home and you’ll be able to enjoy those breezy summer vacay vibes all year long. (Psst…we’re also really digging the colorful plaid pattern.)
5. Scandinavian Design Oak Swing Seat
If you’re looking for something less tropical and more modern, this sleek Scandinavian style oakwood swing should fit the bill. Bonus: The option to choose between either a light or dark finish means this understated indoor swing will mesh with pretty much any kind of decor.
6. Dakota Fields Moorcroft Chair Hammock
Easy to hang and durable—this comfy swing is much like the Brazilian hammock listed above, but with a bit more structure, thanks to the included seat and back cushions, and a little playful fringe, to boot.
7. Miriam Hanging Chair
Concentric circles of sturdy rattan give the cocoon-like frame of this swing a look that’s equal parts organic and modern, and the woven basket seat provides the cushioning your bum requires.
8. Mistana Aime Porch Swing
For anyone who has ever dreamed of levitating in a papasan chair, this is the swing for you. This bohemian beauty features a wicker and rattan frame, plus a cozy and supportive hammock-style seat—just add a throw cushion and a good book to the mix and let this puppy rock you into a state of bliss.
9. Set of Two Black Macrame Swings
Let’s just say this one is a decidedly sophisticated take on the backyard tree swing from your youth. Yep, the sleek, dark finish and bohemian macrame and fringe details of this custom oakwood swing give childhood nostalgia a serious upgrade.
10. Nicesoul Wicker Chair Swing
No hanging required: This egg chair boasts a sturdy base so you can swing to your heart’s content without being suspended from the ceiling. Happy customers also report that it’s well-constructed, crazy comfy and quite roomy as well.
11. Oakwood Crochet Swing
If you’re willing to go all in on an indoor swing, this gorgeous rope swing from Studio Iota is for you. The delicate crochet embellishments are knit by hand from bespoke yarn, and the effect is just so pretty, it’s practically a work of art (as it should be, given the price point). Best of all, Studio Iota is a social project that teaches the craft of crochet and employs women who were otherwise unable to work. In other words, it’s money well spent, if you can swing it.
12. Dakota Fields Folding Double Swing Chair
Here, an extra large option ideal for those seeking a swing chair to canoodle in. Indeed, this swaying loveseat has plenty of room for two (or space to put your feet up when you’re swinging solo) and it rocks on a stand, which means there’s no complicated installation involved, either.
13. Dakota Fields Hanging Rope Swing Chair Hammock
The soft, spongy cushions that come with this durable canvas one-seater are very inviting, and the design provides both the coziness of a hammock and the support of a proper chair. That said, this one is on the smaller side, so if you want a place you can spread out, you’re better off with a different swing.
14. Mistana Anner Porch Swing with Stand
The lattice wicker weave of this egg chair is easy on the eyes and we’re also fans of the cut-outs on both sides of the chair, which are really just cleverly disguised “handles,” allowing you to emerge from the well-cushioned cocoon with ease (albeit with some reluctance, too).
15. Garden Swing Chair
More like a hanging bed than anything else, this handcrafted, swinging saucer features beautiful macrame detail and an extra plush pillow top that'll make you feel like you’re sitting in the lap of luxury.
16. Rizward Leather Sex Sling
Maybe the other swings on the list weren’t quite adult enough for you, or perhaps you prefer BDSM to boho-chic; whatever the case may be, this handmade premium leather sex sling—complete with amply padded foot and head rests—will certainly spice up your interior.
