Chairs. Couches. Stools. We all have at least one of these different types of seating. While many people opt for simple chairs or couches that are comfy and neutral, many of us out there do just the opposite! Redecorating your place or moving into a new one gives you the opportunity to experiment with your space. If you are looking for an alternative way to relax and entertain, check out these quirky ideas!
The Hammock – Ahhh, the hammock. Most of the time found on a beach, by the water and in the tropical islands. Having one of these in your place can give you just that mindset. Even if you live in the middle of the country with no water in sight, you can easily install a hammock in any room of your house. Even better, if you have a patio with an enclosed ceiling, you can place one outside. Hammocks.com has SO MANY to choose from! Grab a book, take a snooze, and RELAX!
Bean Bags – No matter what color, style or theme you have going on in your room, I can guarantee with a bean bag chair you can find one to match! Available in thousands of patterns and colors, bean bag chairs are a fun and simple way to allow for some more seating. You can place a few together to create a “lounge area” in one part of a room. Or have them spread out so guests can carry them over to anywhere they want to sit. Target has a great selection of different colors, sizes and styles.The best thing about bean bag chairs is that they are portable so you can plop down wherever you want!
Balance Ball Chair – Sometimes sitting for long hours in uncomfortable chairs can not only be unfavorable, but can be bad for your health and posture. With a balance ball chair, you can get the stability and durability you need. These chairs are great for improving posture, and also give your abs and muscles a little workout as you remain stable on the ball. Gaiam is one of the most popular producers of these chairs. Great choice if you work from home!
Bubble Chair – For a modern and fun twist, try a bubble chair! You can sit in this cocoon-like seat as it hangs from a stand, a ceiling, or if you want to be in touch with nature, hang it from a tree! Many designers like Aarnio Eero have had their take on this chair. The round appearance will definitely add something new to an area that needs a change!
