Summer has finally arrived, and Brits are eager to make the most of their outdoor space to enjoy the sunshine.

Summer 2020 taught us that you really can't wait until the last minute to purchase garden furniture, as items can sell out fast.

Aldi’s egg chair has proven to be a sell-out success over the last year - meanwhile, almost every single John Lewis hanging chair online is emblazoned with the words ‘out of stock’.

While it's almost impossible to currently find an egg chair in stock, we finally managed to track the new egg chair at B&Q - it's finally back in stock after selling out due to popular demand. No wonder- it's so stylish and looks oh-so-comfy.

Why we rate it

Unlike other egg chairs, the Apolima Rattan Effect Egg Chair isn't a hanging design, which according to the reviews, many shoppers actually prefer (no danger of falling out!).

The large egg shape offers optimum comfort for relaxing moments in the sunshine, not to mention its stylish rattan-effect frame is the perfect on-trend addition to any outdoor sanctuary.

The chair also comes with two cosy-looking cushions and is made from steel with a synthetic rattan frame making it sturdy and water resistant (although B&Q do suggest you protect the chair with a cover when not in use).

While assembly is required, a quick scroll through the comments will assure you that it's quick and easy.

What the reviews say

If its sell-out success isn't proof enough that it's a must-have, maybe the high praise the Apolima Rattan effect Egg Chair has received from shoppers will do.

  • "I fell in love with this chair when I saw it. I don’t personally like the hanging ones as I suffer with vertigo. This chair is so comfortable it easily fits two adults. It’s very sturdy, the cushions are good quality, the whole thing looks way more expensive than it was. It fitted together easily - took my husband and I about 15 minutes."

  • "So glad I went for this and not a hanging one as I can wriggle about to my heart's content and still feel very stable. Put it together single-handedly. Super snuggly."

  • "We totally love it, it’s comfortable and big enough for two people and a perfect haven whatever the weather. Great to relax in. Although the price might be slightly higher than other chairs I have seen, you definitely get what you pay for."

  • "What a gorgeous chair. Really striking and comfortable too. It's much deeper than I realised, you can sit right back in it, and much wider, all three of my children can fit in at once. Looking up on a sunny day, I feel like I'm on holiday."

  • "I absolutely love this chair. It was a lockdown gift from my husband. It is so comfy every time I sit on it I end up curled up and snoozing. Really comfy and stylish."
