Swing low: 6 of The Best Hanging Chairs

There's something seriously seductive about a hanging chair. No matter what age you are, kicking back and letting your legs dangle freely as you sway back and forth is enough to make anyone feel like a child again.

And with so many stylish and weather-proof options, both of the hanging variety and with stands (ideal for renters, or for tactfully manoeuvring the chair to follow the sun), there's never been a better time to invest in one.

Go on, treat yourself.
