Shape isn't the only criterion you should pay attention to. Hanging chairs may be made from a variety of materials. The original Bubble chair is made of acrylic, stainless steel frame and leather seat cushion. The most commonly used materials are:
Rattan - Rattan structures are very decorative. It is a durable and environmentally friendly material, although it is not waterproof. Therefore, woven furniture should not be placed outdoors. You can paint the pieces with varnish.
Technorattan - The technorattan hanging chair is as decorative as natural rattan furniture. Its main advantages are durability and resistance to weather conditions.
Wood - This type of material is heavier than other materials. It is perfect for those who value natural materials.
Plastic – Plastic hanging chairs come in the widest variety of designs. Plastic is lightweight and relatively durable. Care should be taken not to scratch it, as any markings will be very visible and difficult to remove. Hanging chairs made of plastic are easy to clean.
Fabric - Fabric is most commonly used in hammock production. They are lightweight, breathable and easy to fold. The most popular fabrics are cotton and linen. There is a similar solution - a hanging chair made of twine.
Metal - I made a metal hanging chair out of durable mesh. The most common metal used for this purpose is aluminum.
The choice of material depends on the use of the hanging chair. If you are going to place the object outside, choose a material that is resistant to weather conditions. You should also consider the general design of the room. The popular Scandinavian style uses wood, fabric and woven hanging chairs. Natural wicker chairs are a great addition to the country style. The modern minimalist style can be perfectly combined with plastic or metal hanging chairs with simple geometric shapes.
