Hanging Chair Swings for Outdoor
One of my favorite places to sit after a long day at work is one of the hanging chair swings for outdoor use. You can place them inside or out to sit and relax with a cool drink after a tough day.
I will go over the details of three chair swings in this article. A stand for two of these swings can be purchased at an extra cost if you do not have a tree or ceiling to hang the swing from.
Different styles and layers of comfort can be had in these chairs. I will give you the details so that you can make a better choice in what works best for you.

Butterfly Hammock Swing
The Butterfly hammock swing is a wide rope swing that will need to be attached to the ceiling, stand or a tree. This chair has a great looking back pillow with a butterfly design, thus its name. The seat cushion has stripes in similar colors.
A wooden bar will go between the seat portion and the ropes that will attach to something above.
The ropes will support the fabric seat base that the pillows sit in. The construction of this chair will support 250 pounds, depending on the mounting above.
The two pillows will give plenty of comfort. They will be made from a polyester material. A storage solution should be found to keep the sunshine and rain from fading the bright colors.
The swing is 31 inches wide, and 48 inches from the top hook to the seat base. Will be wide enough to sit a grandkid or two in the chair with you if everyone is petite.

My final thoughts on these swings
If you are looking for Hanging Chair Swings for Outdoor for the comfort for one, each of these designs will have some great points. I like the rope type as it is easy to put up and can be stored easily. I have a tree to hang mine from and have a couple of hooks on tree for my hammock.
Your choice of the swing will depend on where you use it and the surface that it sits on. If the surface is not the best you may want to think about overhead support. For more choices in outdoor swings, see my category on swings here.
