It's an essential part of any sixties pad – now it looks like it's one for the 21st century too, thanks to this hanging basket swing chair, available from Urban Outfitters.
With the current batch of sunshine encouraging us to rediscover the delights of our outdoor space. And, in time for the summer months, what could be better to help you in that aim than the Freda chair from Oliver Bonas?
No late 60s/early 70s pad should have been without a swinging chair, and most homes in 2013 would benefit from one too, especially if they are as attractive as Habitat's Lyra hanging chair.
Add some sixties style to your outdoor space with this Monaco hanging chair, from Next.
There seems to have been quite a few of these cropping up on the high street recently (compare it to the Cora hanging chair from BHS for example), meaning it's becoming easier to pick up one at a reasonable price. This particular model is not the most deluxe model – it's made from rattan and it's self assembly – but it does give you the look at a high street price.
That price? The chair costs £399.

It's a classic look for a 60s-style interior and it's available on the 2011 highstreet courtesy of the Cora hanging chair from BHS.
The hanging chair not only offers a great retro look but is the perfect accompaniment to some of their retro style lighting we've been featuring recently. It's not just for indoors too – thanks to its self-supporting steel frame, this chair is suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.
Not so cheap, but still reasonably priced when compared to similar designs, the chair costs £799.
