HOW TO HANG YOUR CHAIR
CHECK THE MAXIMUM
WEIGHT CAPACITY before you buy, as it can vary between 120–200kg. If the hanging chair doesn’t come with its own stand, think about the best place to hang it. You’ll want somewhere it can hang without causing an obstruction and where it won’t bang into any walls. It should hang about 90-110cm above the floor.
HANG YOUR CHAIR PIVOTSTYLE, which will let you rotate it 360 degrees, or hang from two ropes to rock back and forth. If hanging hardware isn’t included, you’ll need a specialist screw-in hook for the ceiling, plus a heavy-duty chain or rope to hang the chair from and connecting carabiners or S hooks, – all must be able to support at least 140kg. IF YOU’RE NOT A DIY PRO, chair hanging is best left to a professional. It must be hung from a beam or ceiling joist that is able to support the weight of the chair and person sitting in it. If you’re concerned about support limits, go for a chair with two hanging rings so you can distribute the weight between two beams.
IF YOUR SUPPORT BEAM
ISN’T VISIBLE, you’ll need to locate it using a stud finder, which will pinpoint the centre of the beam. Then you can drill a hole and screw in the hanging hook before connecting your chain or rope and hanging the chair.
