For quite some time now I have had my heart set on someday including a rattan hanging chair in a future home space someway, somehow. A few months ago I became so obsessed with having one in my life that I scoured the internets in hopes of finding one that was semi budget friendly. Sadly, no such luck. Tons of amazing options in the over $1,000 range (well of course) or Serena and Lily’s option which is still pretty pricy for me. I had never forgotten about the idea but kind of pushed it to the back of my mind out of exasperation from coming up with nothing in all of my searches (I am typically pretty good at finding things online). Lo and behold my boyfriend and I were stuck indoors during last weekend’s chilly weather and watching basketball when a Pier 1 commercial came on and a rattan hanging chair (!!!!) flashed across the screen during the commercial. Pier 1′s Swingasan Chair is the hanging chair of my (future) dreams and the price isn’t horrible on the wallet either. I am hoping that I can find some sort of a coupon code or special too to make it even more affordable.
I was legit giddy excited after seeing the commercial and totally set to buy this chair and work it into my bedroom in any way I could when my boyfriend crushed my dreams and told me that it was going to require a lot of work to hang and probably wouldn’t work in my apartment. Something to do with finding studs in the ceiling, leaving a big hole, etc, etc. Big. Fat. Bummer. Good thing I am the biggest optimist you’ll ever meet and think that everything will work out and we’ll all ride off into the sunset on unicorns, so I didn’t take what he said too seriously. Studs and apartments or not, I will be making Pier 1′s hanging chair mine and if I can’t make it work in my current living situation, you can bet that I will in the future. What do you think of the hanging chair look? It just screams happiness, fun, and instantly gives that laid back vibe. I have never been one to take home decor too seriously so why not add a little place to swing into the mix. Whats a room without a fun little conversation piece like this guy anyway?
