Our gardens have had a serious upgrade since we were able to start entertaining outside again.

And though we may now have the perfect chair to table ratio, gorgeous solar lights and even a water fountain, there's one little luxury that's probably missing from the list: a hanging chair.

A hanging chair adds an instant sense of luxury and glamour to your garden, and not only looks inviting but provides the perfect spot for relaxing. 

Which is why shoppers are currently raving about this Garden Dante Hanging Pod Chair from John Lewis

Why we rate it:

Not only does this chair give your garden a zen, spa-like vibe, it also means that relaxation is always on the cards, as you can kick back with a good book or glass of wine and revel in those gorgeous summer evenings. 

The synthetic wicker frame, available in either beige or grey, gives a natural finish but also ensures durability and makes it easy to keep clean and in good shape.

And, most importantly of all, it's super comfy, according to reviewers, so you can be sure it's ideal for a post-lunch snooze. 

What the reviews say:

  • "The best self-gift to ourselves during this tricky time. So cosy and calming I could stay in it all day!! The cushion fabric is not very chic but it can easily be even more cosified with other pillows and throws. Truly love it."

  • "I love this seat and agree with other reviews. Just a small point, I left the cushions on in the rain. The seat filled up with water which squirted through, past the buttons, when I sat on it. Soggy bottom and a long time to squeeze it out. Moral: don't leave cushions on when not in use."

  • "Love this chair. It's so relaxing to just sit in the garden listening to birds while gently swinging in the chair."

  • "This stylish chair is a wonderful addition to a contemporary living room with a relaxing vibe and most comfortable place to sit and gently swing."

  • "If you like a bit of style and a bit if fun, this is a must-have piece. I got it at a discounted price so that made it even better. The material, the finish and the overall design cannot be faulted. In fact the product is way above my expectation. I have put it on my balcony but I am sure it would be equally good for indoor use if you have that kind of space. The assembly was fairly easy and it came nicely packed."
