Why Didn't My Childhood Bedroom Have a Hanging Chair?
Kids' rooms today are so cool with their loft beds, ceiling designs, canopies and most of all — hanging chairs. I remember thinking my bedroom was destined for an episode of MTV Cribs with its 12-inch TV, Nintendo 64 and inflatable furniture set. (You know, the chair, ottoman and pillows. Cozy!) But kids' bedrooms nowadays? They're an inspired multipurpose space for work, play and everything in between. And swinging chairs are great for both! I could totally binge on some Netflix or catch up on email in one of these swinging beauties.
Take a look at these 12 designer kids' rooms with hanging chairs in all shapes, sizes and styles, from the Eero Aarnio Bubble Chair to a boho-chic hammock chair.

Like sun rays, a yellow chevron print stretches its way across the ceiling of this kids room. A textured area rug reminiscent of grass brings the outside in, while the hanging birdcage chair adds a fun place for reading or daydreaming.

Painted clouds and city streets provide a fun and playful backdrop for this kid's bedroom. The contemporary bunk bed includes a fireman pole and slide for exciting exits from the top bunk.

Blue Hammock Chair in Boys' Bedroom
In the corner of this room, the boys get their own little hammock chair. With natural light pouring in from the French doors and from the windows, this space is perfect for reading and doing homework.

Teen Girl's Bedroom With Hanging Bubble Chair
"Fun" is the word that best describes this teen girl's room. A blue focal wall matches the custom headboard, making the room pop with color. A hanging bubble chair provides bedside seating, while a four-foot-wide, flokati-covered rolling ottoman offers extra seating and a contrasting color to the blue and pink accents.
Contemporary Teen's Room With Loads of Personality

Designer Claire Paquin pulled colors from the bright polka-dot bedding and carried them throughout the space.
