I made a list of the most unusual and traditional furniture, this chair is on the top of the list. Both functional yet so decorative. This article is special for you who want to know more detail about this chair design.
Papasan chair is a large rounded bowl-shaped chair which has an adjustable angle. Some people are also called is a moon chair or bowl chair. Originally, the frame of Papasan chair is made of rattan, but now it’s also available in wood or sturdy wicker.
It also becomes one of the most trending chair design to have in the modern house. It gets popular because of its unique design and comfort. It can be placed anywhere you want, from the backyard to your living room.
This chair design was first made in the 1950s and it had a great success in the late 1970s.So, bringing back Papasan chairs in this era of interior design might be mind-blowing. It’s like bringing back the past into the present.
The unique and classic look of this chair would give a perfect impression of the whole interior atmosphere. There are some reasons why people love to put Papasan chairs in the middle of their room.
As we know, Papasan chair is rich in designs. There are various of designs you can choose for your Papasan chair. All of them are flexible in your room. This simple chair can get along with a variety of decors. It could be a comfortable seat for your living room, bedroom, or even backyard.

The first answer to that question is the versatility. The frame of this chair is comprised of two circles. The big one on the floor and the smaller one at the top.
Both of them are connected with some vertical supports. The open circles allow me to shift the position of the cushion and frame. You can use the Papasan according to your most comfortable place.
The most comforting reason for this Papasan chair is the cushion. It has a large size and circular shape which fits me in a curled-up position.
The thickness is perfect for the frame, it doesn’t give you any discomfort. The first time I saw this chair design, it seems not comfortable because it was designed purely for novelty, but I was wrong.
The Papasan chair’s framed is already positioned, the stability will be compromised as a result. When you set it on sitting position, do not move much. If you twist it or lean it to the side, it could throw off the balance. The frame tip will off the base.
If you position the frame to get it centered on the base, it will give you more stability, but you need to get in it first.
Difficult to stand up
Another reason why not having Papasan chair is the difficulty of standing up for some people. Sitting on Papasan chair is just like sitting in a nest. You will put your bottom in the middle of the chair which is the cavity of the frame.
It results, the feet wouldn’t be touching the ground. This position would give you a sore leg. The real deal is when you need to stand up, it can be pretty challenging.
As I already told you before, the frame is essential for a papasan chair, so knowing how to create a Papasan Chair frame would be very useful for you who wants to make your own frame. Doing the DIY projects for the frame and cushion can help you manage your budget. Instead of purchasing it from the store, DIY frame sounds better.
“It’s a large dish-shaped chair that can sit in some different structures”, says Ryan Voss from Hunker.com. The most common frame shape is the semi-conical. Generally, this short, stool-like wooden stand is made of rattan or bamboo.

There are five things you need to do to make your own hanging Papasan chair according to Red Brown in his Blog. Here is the list:
The first thing you need to do is making sure that you have enough space to install your hanging Papasan chair. You need to measure the space and the chair. Make sure they are fit the surroundings.
Usually, the diameter across of the Papasan is 45 inches. Besides the flooring space, this chair will take a lot of visual space. If you put it on your patio, you might need to do the measurement carefully. It is the key to a comfortable area.
After measuring the space, the second step is to prepare the materials. You need to make a list of materials you will need in the project, here they are:
The box cutter is needed for cutting the rope. The lighter is required to seal the ends of the line after that. The amount of the hitching ring would be based on your project design. The nail will help you see the spot on the ceiling to install the screw eyes. For rope management, there’s a tape.
Why the step three is “learning”? Well, if you do not know how to knot, you won’t be able to create a big hanging chair. The perfect knot is required in this project. So, make sure you understand the right way to knot the ropes.
There are two types of knot you will use to give stability to the structure. You have to get it correctly because it’s the essential part of the installation. The types of knot are the Sailor’s knot and the Blood knot.
The Sailor’s knot is used to give the chair areas the most active support. The Blood knows will be used on the hitching ring based to support the proper balance. You may need to learn those knot from other sources such as animatedknots.com.
After having the right knot, you can start installing it on the ceiling or any other spot that you will hang your chair. First, if you are about to hang it on the ceiling, you need to find the joist. It will help you to secure the hanging system.
Then, you can hammer a small nail into the ceiling to give a mark to the spot. The hitching ring will be located there. Make sure there’s enough space between the hanging chair and the wall before you give your ceiling a hole.
Next, after you install the hitching ring, do the Blood knot to the hitching ring. There you have it, your own Hanging outdoor Papasan chair.
Well, you already have it set and ready to sit on. If you want to add something to make it more decorative, you may wanna start with the cushion. Choose the cushion that meets your style with the right fabric types and accessories.
Voila!! With this hanging Papasan chair, you will get a fantastic experience of relaxation outdoors. The unique design will shine your outdoor space brighter. A hanging outdoor Papasan chair is comfortable, simple, and unique.
You already know how to make some DIY Papasan Chair, so next I will tell you 5 best hanging chairs you can have for your house as seen on BuildDirect.com:
We all agree when we were children, we fell in love with swings. Well, it doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy swings when you are grown-up. You can have it free standing or hang from the ceiling, it is the best seat to enjoy the outdoor views.
Actually, installing a porch swing is not a difficult task. It doesn’t require a lot of hands. You can do it with the help of your relatives. It can be an easy weekend project for anyone. The swing doesn’t have to be on the porch. You can also set it indoors.
A hammock is very flexible, you can put it in your living room whenever you need it. Just set some indoor hooks for the bed. You can move away from your table, and hang the hammock when you are ready to hang. You can always take the hammock down and push back the table when you’re done.
This one is the most popular hanging chair that makes a great accent for your patio. It can also be a casual addition to your indoor rooms. This unique hanging chair is quite similar with Papasan chair. It suits in many styles which makes the room more cozy and sharper.
These days, you can find this Egg basket almost in all modern household because this chair is the most favorite hanging lounge space you’ve ever experience. The design is like the swinging bird’s nest which gets you in touch with nature.
Do you love bubbles? If you do, this chair might be for you. Take a look at its design. Sitting in this chair makes you look futuristic. It seems like this chair design is new, but actually, this bubble chair invented over 50 years ago. It was designed by Eero Aarnio in 1968.
Unlike other hanging chairs, in my opinion, this hanging chair is more suitable for indoor furniture. The design feels like it’s created for your home interior design. The clean looking chair looks so futuristic, even though it comes from the 70s.
This unique chair would turn your ordinary room into the special one. If you have coastal style in your home interior, you might want to have a Papasan chair with rattan frame.
The rattan frame Papasan chair will give a tropical atmosphere to your coastal style. As we know, coastal and tropical is the best buddy. If you want the chair to be fitted in luxurious style, the orange Mamasan chair will add a little more glam to the form.
Actually, hanging Papasan chair didn’t belong to the list because this chair is initially not a hanging chair. Turning it into a hanging chair would make Papasan chair more comfortable and accessible among others. So, if you need a spot to “Hang Out,” a swinging Papasan chair is the best solution.
