Where should I put an egg chair?

'Egg chairs are a brilliant choice for smaller gardens, such as balconies, as they can add a new dimension to the space, creating an extra room for relaxation at the end of a long day,' says Lynsey Abbott, outdoor living buyer, Dobbies (opens in new tab).

'A single standing or hanging egg chair can be layered up with outdoor cushions - or cushions and throws borrowed from inside - to create your very own plug free space to unwind in. The addition of large leafy plants and a colourful backdrop will make you feel instantly transported to overseas climates, creating your own piece of paradise closer to home.'
