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.
16 Indoor Swings for Adults That Are Both Fun and Functional
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.
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.
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).
