ikea “poeng” chair: assembly instructions, cover for a children’s rocking chair, reviews

Model features

Without a doubt, the Poeng Ikea chair has no analogues among the products of other trading companies. One glance at it is enough to appreciate the elegance of its form. The chair has a durable base with a smooth curve; no nails are used in its assembly.

The external fragility of the chair is deceptive; the maximum load is 170 kg.

Despite a certain similarity with a rocking chair, the technology for its creation is somewhat different. Features of the model from Ikea:

  1. Poeng fits into any room, because there are more than a dozen options for upholstery and design itself. When choosing a chair according to the style of the interior, you can’t go wrong.
  2. The manufacturer provides a 10-year free warranty, so the durability is beyond doubt: the furniture will last for many years.
  3. You can assemble your own unique chair, because the company offers several materials and colors to choose from for each piece of furniture.
  4. The design does not require nails, making assembly quick and easy.
  5. The anatomical back allows you to sit comfortably in the chair. Additional convenience is provided by the ergonomic frame of the structure, which springs slightly when using the product.

Such furniture will be loved by all family members, and is great for both relaxation and work. You can install it in the office, bedroom and even in the garden. Despite its great benefits and long service life, the Poeng chair is no more expensive than its branded counterparts. The price of the product ranges from 8,000 to 16,000 rubles - depending on the specific model.

According to one version, the unique design of the chair was invented 40 years ago by Noboru Nakamura (Japanese designer), being in a philosophical mood and considering options for ideal furniture for relaxation. The second version of the origin of the poeng chair comes from the founder of IKEA, Ignvard Kamprad, who, despite his income, was the most frugal person among all modern rich people. He always preferred the most budget hotels and traveled in a Volvo. An interesting fact from Kamprad’s life is that he had a favorite chair that accompanied him everywhere. It was precisely this model that formed the basis for the design of the poeng chair, now popular all over the world.

There is no 100% confirmation of one version or another, so both legends have their place. One way or another, this unique piece of furniture has no analogues today.

Step-by-step instructions No. 2: linen hammock chair

A hanging hammock chair made of natural linen is an excellent option for a children's room or veranda

This product is very practical to use, because... it is simple to make and easy to wash. This advantage allows you to use a hammock chair in a children's room, as well as in the garden.

For production we will need the following:

  • oak stick – 1 pc.;
  • light fabric (linen, canvas) – 2 m;
  • sewing machine;
  • acrylic paint for fabric;
  • brush;
  • climbing rope;
  • carabiners for fastening;
  • drill;
  • 3/8" drill bit;
  • marker;
  • scissors;
  • iron;
  • ruler.

Manufacturing technique:

  1. The prepared canvas should be folded in half and measured from the upper right edge 18 cm. At this point we will make a mark and draw a line to the bottom of the canvas.
  2. Carefully cut off the resulting triangular fragment and unfold the canvas.
  3. Then we bend the top edge by about 1.5 cm and use a hot iron to fix it.
  4. Then we repeat the operation with the same fragment, stitching the fold along the lower edge of the strip.
  5. We decorate the bottom edge of the canvas in the same way.
  6. Then you need to make pockets for the rope, which should be threaded on each side. To do this, turn the canvas so that its long edge is on the right hand. We bend the corners by 4 cm and also iron them.
  7. We make 2 lines along the folded edge of the strip. We repeat the operation for the other side of the canvas.
  8. Then we take a stick and measure two pieces from its sides - 5 cm and 10 cm. In the marked places we make holes using a drill.
  9. Next, lay the canvas on a cardboard backing and apply the desired design. After the acrylic paint has dried, repeat the operation for the back side of the canvas.
  10. We make a knot on one side of the stretched rope so that a 7 cm long end remains. We thread the free “tail” through the outer hole and thread it through the seat pocket.
  11. We tie it, making an indentation of 8 cm from the first knot, and pass the rope into the second hole. Then we thread it down through the opposite edge.
  12. We perform the operation with another pocket, making the last knot with a “tail” of 7 cm.
  13. Then we tie it in the center of the rope above the stick so that a loop of about 20 cm comes out.
  14. We fix a hook on the ceiling and attach two carabiners to which the hammock chair will be attached.
  15. This completes the process.

IKEA poeng chair: elegant shape and manufacturing technology

Undoubtedly, the peculiarity of this chair model is its exquisite shape - a solid base with a smooth curve without a single stud! This stunning design, although seemingly fragile, can support up to 170 kg of weight. The frame is complemented by removable upholstery made of different types of fabrics (quite durable and pleasant to the touch) and movable armrests adjustable in two positions.

The legs resemble the Latin letter U, which is why the one-piece structure looks like a rocking chair. However, this is a slightly different technology, but in the Poeng line there is also the first option.

The main part of the chair is not designed for swaying, but for the body to relax as much as possible, taking an optimal comfortable position. The design is slightly springy, which gives an even greater relaxing effect after a busy day. The backrest and seat are designed to support the correct position of the neck and back. In fact, such furniture is a kind of your personal home orthopedist.

The poeng chair is made from birch veneer, since this material is the most elastic and easier to bend. The process is quite labor-intensive: first, the workpiece is processed with hot steam, bends are formed, after which it is firmly fixed and impregnated with a special compound to maintain elasticity.

Preparing for work.

Before moving on to the process of making the chair itself, let's understand its features. The chair itself consists of two parts: an outer cover and an inner one.

The outer cover should be equipped with a long zipper and, preferably, a small handle for carrying the bag around the apartment. It is also worth considering that you should give preference to dense and wear-resistant materials. It is best to make a cover from raincoat fabric, for example, Dyuspo 240, it is easy to wipe off if it gets dirty or a drink is spilled.

The inner case will be filled with small beads of polystyrene foam or simply polystyrene. You can use lining material, for example, Taffeta 140. Also, do not forget about a small zipper for filling the bag and subsequent stuffing in case the balls wrinkle (after some time).

The dimensions of the future bag are 120 x 90 cm.

Materials for work:

  • fabric for the inner cover - 3 m;
  • fabric for the outer cover - 3 m;
  • zipper 100 cm;
  • zipper 40 cm;
  • filler - 300 l.

Before you make a bag chair with your own hands, you need to carefully re-take all the details of the chair pattern using graph paper. But it is possible to do without it, and use chalk or soap to transfer the details directly onto the fabric.


Poeng chairs are so popular not only because of their excellent quality. They are presented in several variations, which allows everyone to make the best choice. Product modifications:

  1. A classic version of the chair, which can be complemented with a foot stool. This design creates a single anatomical line, which makes it especially comfortable. The frame is springy, and two front stoppers prevent the chair from turning over when lifting.
  2. Poeng rocking chair, the design of which differs from the classic model. More flexible birch veneer is used for production. A distinctive feature of the product is the curved legs in the form of an irregular oval. There are no front stoppers so as not to restrict movement, but there are comfortable armrests. This modification of the Poeng chair is valued for back problems and is liked by older people. Thanks to the design of the backrest, the load on the spine is reduced, and the muscle corset does not experience pain. When transporting, the model folds, which is very convenient - the assembled chair can fit in the trunk of a car. A nice bonus is a removable pillow on which you can comfortably rest your head.
  3. Lounge chair. In order to comfortably take a nap for a couple of hours, you don’t have to have a raised bed: this modification was created specifically for this. Its dimensions and depth are larger than those of other models, and the back is also tilted at a different angle. The basis of the frame is birch veneer of increased strength.
  4. Swivel chair. This is the highlight of the Poeng model range. In terms of anatomical characteristics, it is no different from other varieties. Only the legs are different: here they are made of frame and veneer. The product can be equipped with a footstool. This option is perfect if there is not enough space for a lounge chair. The covers of the rotating model are removable, which emphasizes practicality.
  5. The Poeng child seat is a smaller copy of the classic model. It will not take up much space - the furniture is compact in size. Thanks to the variety of upholstery colors, the chair is easy to choose for the interior of a child's room.

Children often love to read books while lying in bed or on the sofa, but this spoils their eyesight and posture. And such a chair will be an excellent solution for kids.

Frame options

Pillow options

Other types: wicker, couch


This furniture is a lightweight, durable and stable structure that can be assembled with four bolts in 10 minutes and can withstand 170 kg of weight. The simple appearance allows the product to fit into any interior - from Scandinavian minimalism to modernism. The rich color range of removable seats is designed to suit the design of the room in both warm and cool colors. The buyer can choose the material: textiles or eco-leather.

Deciduous trees are chosen as the material for the base (as the most flexible and light): beech, ash, birch, oak. The frame is multilayer (composite), adhesive type, which provides additional elasticity. Additionally, it is treated with stain to give the desired color.

The covers are available in 15 options: plain, printed, eco-leather. For the 40th anniversary of the chair, an exclusive genuine leather cover was released. It is very convenient that all covers are removable, and most textile models can be machine washed at 40 degrees.

Choosing a suitable product design

Before sewing a chair cover with your own hands, you should think about what fabric to choose so that the furniture fits into the overall interior. The design of the product may be different, but each style has its own characteristics. They are presented in the table.

Design typeCharacteristic
PatchworkThis cover is a combination of a large number of patches of different colors and shapes. The palette of shades is usually bright, but if the product will be used in Provence or Scandinavian style, then it is better to give preference to pastel, muted tones. This DIY chair cover will add personality to the room. It looks festive and impressive. For a beginner, sewing a product in the patchwork style will be somewhat difficult, since it involves sewing together a large number of fragments, which must first be folded in a certain order and overcast.
LoftThe loft style combines wide space, maximum sunny color and rough wall decoration (brick, concrete). Fur products are especially popular for him. This type of chair cover must be made carefully with your own hands. Natural material is expensive, but it is soft, cozy and warm. High-quality faux fur is not inferior in properties to it. The length of the pile may vary. As for color, in this style it is better to use light, airy shades. A fur cover will make the interior rich and more presentable, but it is important not to overdo it.
Shabby chicThis style is characterized by the use of faded and worn fabrics to create an antique effect. Here it is better to use muted shades and light floral patterns. Geometric patterns in this case are inappropriate, as are bright colors. To sew the cover, you can use silk or satin fabric. Brushes and frills are suitable for decoration.
BaroqueCovers with frills and flounces are appropriate for this style. They add romance. Folds can be full or incomplete, and can be on the front of the chair or on the sides.




Shabby chic

Types of chairs

The chair has undergone changes over time. It is now available in a variety of colors and finishes. But its design is constantly being improved. Some models were not to my liking, while others remained in their original condition:

  • Poeng chair. This is a classic option. Exactly the one the designers worked on.
  • Poeng rocking chair. The legs of this model are elongated and curved upward, forming a loop. The rounding angle of the legs is no more than 35 degrees from the equilibrium position, so there is no danger of the chair tipping over. Despite the already reclined position, the angle between the seat and backrest is still 90 degrees.
  • Poeng footstool. At first glance, a useless thing. But it is a great addition to a classic armchair. When designing the stool, the physiological characteristics of the human body were also taken into account. The stool has an uneven surface and is tilted. The height of one edge is slightly lower than the seat height of a classic chair and is 39 cm, and the height of the other is 36 cm. This slope makes it possible to relax your legs after a hard day at work.
  • Poeng chair for children. Realizing what a miracle designers had invented for adults, manufacturers immediately thought about children. Knowing how important correct posture is for children, parents who had already experienced the comfort of the Poeng chair, without hesitation, bought chairs for their children. This is a classic version in miniature.

Previously, two more models of chairs were produced: an office chair and a lounge chair. But currently there is no information about their production.

So how many kg can the Poeng chair hold?

Both the manufacturer and customers claim that Poeng chairs can withstand a load of 170 kg. Many people write about this in their reviews. Young mothers, who have gained their extra pounds, are not even afraid to sit in it with children who are growing by leaps and bounds. Some “large” customers experienced the reliability of the design while still in the store. And then they bought it home with complete confidence. But there are those who, despite the load test presented in the store, still look with disbelief at such an elegant chair.

Forty years have passed since the friendship between the two brilliant inventors and the birth of the chair, but Poeng’s design is still relevant. Albeit in a slightly modified form, the Poeng chair still exists today.

A comfortable chair is a must-have item in a modern interior. You can relax in it after work, drink tea or sit comfortably in front of the computer. There are many options for chairs, but the poeng chair is especially popular, which is easily recognized by the special bend of the legs in the shape of the letter U. What is remarkable about this piece of furniture and why is it so in demand among buyers?

Material and color

A big plus of the Poeng chair is the ability to select each component separately: frame, pillow and even stool. Moreover, this is not a choice between good and bad: alternative options are not inferior in quality. The final cost is formed from the assembled kit, so you can purchase a chair even at a low price.

The first choice is a birch frame (plywood with veneer). The color range includes 3 shades - black-brown, white and brown. A metal version of the chair base is possible.

Then you need to choose the upholstery material:

  • The rocking chair is available in Stanley and Wisland fabrics, both 100% cotton;
  • for other modifications we offer: Hillared (55% cotton, 25% polyester, 12% viscose, 8% linen), Kimstad or leather covering - Smidig or Glose.

Kimstad is a durable, polymer-coated fabric that, compared to the other materials listed, is not washable. For cleaning, it is recommended to wipe the chair with a damp cloth. Kimstad is characterized by a lower abrasion coefficient than other fabrics and is durable with careful use.

As for the leather covering of the chair, both options are characterized by identical care requirements and the same shelf life, despite different manufacturing technologies. Glose is made from durable cattle hide, which becomes soft after processing. Smidig is a product of goatskin. These types of upholstery are easy to care for and are protected from fading and dirt.

The covering of footstools and pillows is made of the same materials, because the goal is to obtain a single ensemble. Most models have removable covers. They are machine washable at 400 ºC (except for Kimstad). There are many colors of covers - 15 options (with a variety of prints or plain ones). You will be able to choose the right accessory for the bright design of the living room or for the calm atmosphere of a cozy bedroom.

Birch frame










Specialized stores for handicrafts can currently offer a fairly large assortment of goods when choosing textile products. And even the most picky buyers can almost immediately find what they need.

Scheme for making a product for a regular chair

If you need to make a furniture cover, the following alternatives are excellent options:

  • Velours. The material is very soft and pleasant to the body. This fabric does not require special care and has hypoallergenic properties;
  • Cotton. The most important positive quality of this material is its naturalness. However, it is completely short-lived, since the material does not contain artificial fiber. When washed, cotton may shrink;
  • Flock. It is soft and gentle in tactile sensations, however, despite this, it is a fairly durable material, which would be an ideal option for making a chair cover.

Having decided on the choice of material, you should prepare the tools that will be necessary for sewing the cover, namely:

  • Scissors;
  • Simple pencil;
  • Sewing machine;
  • Needle;
  • Tape measure;
  • Vacuum cleaner;
  • The pins are ordinary;
  • Paper pattern;
  • Zipper closure.

Stool cover


Users say that these chairs are “timeless.” The frames are so strong that they last for decades, do not creak or dry out. Many people use the chair instead of computer chairs and note that sitting for many hours in front of a monitor is no longer torture. It is especially convenient to watch movies on a laptop or draw on a tablet.

Everyone unanimously notes the light weight of the chair and the ease of cleaning underneath it. Dust is wiped off easily, the chair can be moved with one hand. Containers with children's toys can easily be placed under it.

When choosing a frame made of birch veneer, you should be prepared for it to get dirty; the armrests get very dirty and require periodic cleaning. Not all covers can be washed in a washing machine, which users also consider a disadvantage. Not everyone is happy with the high cost of high-quality and beautiful cases.

If you are using a rocking chair on a stone or tile floor, then you should stick strips of wide, thick tape on the runners so that there are no unpleasant sounds while rocking.

There are several disadvantages, but the Poeng chair in its various modifications firmly occupies a leading position among frame furniture for relaxation from the Swedish company. Many people choose this kind of furniture, and there is nothing surprising about it - it has a lot of advantages. Consumers really like the chair.

For an overview of other advantages of the Poeng chair from Ikea, see the following video.

How to make a cocoon chair with your own hands

The classic version is a wicker chair made from flexible willow, rattan, broom or bast rods. For those living in central Russia, the following materials are recommended: broom or willow, growing densely along the banks of rivers.

To complete the work, prepare the following:

1. Long willow twigs, with a diameter of 10 to 15 mm, quantity - 400 - 450 pieces. A more flexible and easier to work material is rattan, recommended for those who are weaving for the first time.

2. The frame of the outer part of the furniture will be a metal hoop, metal-plastic pipes or vine rods braided with a scythe.

3. To tie the frame, prepare strong twine and glue.

4. To measure and cut the material we use pruning shears, an awl, a knife and a ruler.

5. We will weave the back with a nylon cord with a cross-section of 4 mm. For making the back, a wicker is recommended, but this is an option for those who are familiar with weaving techniques.

6. We will hang the chair on ropes, cords or chains. The length depends on the height of the room.

The type of weaving may vary, it all depends on the skill.

How to make a chair:

1. First, we prepare the vine: steam it and peel it from the bark, then beat it. These manipulations will make it more pliable.


2. We start by forming the frame. If a hoop is chosen as the front part, and the shape itself should be oval, it will have to be flattened. And yet, it is recommended at this stage to use a metal-plastic pipe, which bends easily, and its ends are connected by an insert.

3. Frame elements are attached to the pipe. The cross-sectional thickness of the rods should be from 6 to 8 mm, and the length should be from 250 to 400 mm above the chair (with vertical mounting). If there is no material of this length, the elements are attached horizontally.

4. When installing the rods vertically, they need to be secured in the upper part of the frame so that at the level of the middle of the back there is a distance of 20 - 25 mm between them.

5. To give the desired shape, the rods are bent, and then collected towards the middle.

6. To secure the frame vine to the base, it is bent through a pipe from the inside of the chair to the outside. This end is intercepted with the vine with twine.

7. The next step is the transverse braiding of the frame rods with a thinner vine. You need to start from the bottom. At the end of the pipe, the rod is bent, then twisted around the main vine.

8. This method is used to braid the entire furniture frame. The finishing rod must be bent, tucked in, and then fixed.

When the frame is ready, all that remains is to select a sufficiently thick foam cushion that will serve as a seat.

There are other ways to make your own cocoon chair. The only condition is that you need to be a diligent, diligent person. There are many options, choose one for a specific interior and get to work.

Sewing stages

Having prepared a sketch, all the necessary materials and tools, you can begin manufacturing. The whole process consists of several stages:

  • creating a pattern;
  • cut;
  • fitting of parts;
  • sewing.

If you have no experience, you should initially try to sew a cover for a chair from cheap “rough” fabric. In this way, you can protect yourself from possible mistakes and not spoil expensive material.

Pattern creation and cutting

Before making patterns for cutting, it is necessary to take measurements of all elements of the chair - more accurate than those taken to calculate fabric consumption. A pattern is made of the cover for the chair, taking into account all its configurations. It is necessary to decide in advance where all the seams will be located. For large parts, if they are of simple shape, you can only take measurements and make a drawing directly on the fabric. Complex shaped elements should first be marked on paper - secure it with pins and trace along the outline with a pencil. Then, using this pattern, draw lines on the fabric with chalk. All details of the future cape, after tracing along the contour on the fabric, are cut out with seam allowances.

It is recommended to iron all cut parts in the direction of the grain thread.


In order for the finished product to look perfect, you must first adjust the parts. All elements (interior, back and armrests) are secured with pins to a chair with armrests. This allows you to immediately see all the inaccuracies that were made during cutting. When all the cut details are adjusted to size, the product is basted by hand and tried on the chair again. If any discrepancies remain, they can be corrected using folds or darts.

Requirements for filler for a bean bag chair, algorithm for adding granules

There is also a very easy way to adjust - trimming the fabric. In this case, the material must be cut in a strictly defined order (along the sides of the platform). However, experience is required here, as there is a high probability of making mistakes. Another method is cord finishing. It needs to be pinned to the future upholstery, and then cut in those places where the fabric will need to be adjusted to different recesses and corners.

Stages of making a feeder chair with your own hands, finishing


When the product “sits” well on the furniture, you can begin sewing on the sewing machine. All sour cream details are ground down, seams are overcast, edges are processed, a zipper (or Velcro, laces) is installed. The cape is then decorated with decorative elements. This could be fringe or decorative cord. All stages of tailoring are individual and depend on the model.

The flounces at the bottom of the cover often serve not only as decoration - they can be used to hide any flaws in the legs of old furniture.

Sewing a chair cover with your own hands is a fun and profitable activity. In addition to the fact that this allows you to gain experience in a new type of activity, such a hobby will undoubtedly give you pleasure from the creative process. Moreover, in this way you can save money and get an original piece of furniture that will delight you for many years.

Equipment and assembly

Poeng's packaging is surprisingly compact - in a separate box there is a frame that weighs only 2 kg. The pillow is folded in a high-strength plastic bag. Assembly is carried out independently and takes a little time. No additional tools are required for work. Instructions are included in the kit, and can also be downloaded from the official website of the store. In general, the process of assembling a rocking chair is as follows:

  1. Take 4 orthopedic lamellas out of the box.
  2. Insert them into the slots of the 2 curved parts. The battens taper at one end, so the arched bases and slats should fit together easily. To prevent the structure from falling apart, secure it with screws. It must be inserted with the concave side inward.
  3. After the back is assembled, you should move on to the seat. The rag base that comes with the kit has two compartments into which you need to insert the remaining slats. Secure them with L-shaped strips using screws.
  4. Assemble the back and seat together.
  5. The main frame consists of L- and L-shaped parts - they need to be twisted so that an oval of irregular shape is obtained (on one side it is more like a rectangle).
  6. Using long confirmations, screw the swinging elements to the side of the previously assembled backrest and seat.
  7. Place the crossbar between the side pieces, its top piece should be flush with the front of the seat.
  8. Check all screws and confirms, tighten them if necessary.

Assembly of the remaining chairs is even simpler, because their design does not imply rocking. It is convenient that the instructions included in the kit are equipped with illustrations and captions.

Assembling the chair takes no more than 15 minutes, and it is easy to transport it disassembled even on public transport.

The Poeng chair has gained popularity all over the world, becoming a real bestseller of Ikea furniture. A variety of colors, materials and low price are the main components of the product’s success. Ease of use makes it a favorite place in the house where you can take a break from the hustle and bustle with health benefits.

Poeng baby chair

Manufacturers have not forgotten about children's models and have created delightful mini chairs tailored to the needs and characteristics of little fidgets. Let's list their main advantages:

  • a variety of original designs and magnificent colors that attract the baby’s attention;
  • safety – the special shape of the legs securely fixes the entire structure, preventing the chair from overturning; there are no traumatic metal parts;
  • weight up to 11 kg, which is very convenient during cleaning;
  • Easy to clean from paints, juice and other contaminants. The seat can always be removed and washed.

Advice! When buying a seat for a child, pay special attention to the issue of safety. The seat should be made of environmentally friendly and soft materials - children like cotton and soft microfiber.

Children's models

Furniture manufacturers do not forget about the little ones. Poeng chair manufacturers' catalogs always include children's models. They differ from furniture for adults in size and color, and sometimes in the shape of the seat. The standard design would also be appropriate in a children's room; it is very convenient to rock a newborn and feed him. Unlike a rocking chair, a poeng is softly springy, but does not sway. The Poeng child seat has several advantages:

  • convenient design - the weight of the structure does not exceed eleven kilograms, so even a fragile woman can move it (for example, during cleaning);
  • stability and safety of the structure - a child will not be able to swing and turn such a chair over while playing; the shape of the legs reliably fixes the furniture in one position;
  • ease of care - most poeng chairs are equipped with removable covers that can be easily removed and cleaned;
  • original design and variety of colors. You can always find a children's product whose color palette is ideal for a child's room. It is best to give preference to calm shades of pink, beige or blue.

For a child's room, a soft cover for a poeng chair made of microfiber or cotton is best suited.

Poeng chairs are easy to care for, primarily due to the replaceable covers that can be washed in a washing machine. Furniture manufacturers often provide the opportunity to purchase a replacement mattress, which allows significant savings in the event of damage to the latter. When purchasing such a piece of furniture, you can be sure of its durability and environmental friendliness, since 100% natural materials are used in production. The poeng chair will become a favorite for every family member, as it gives a feeling of complete relaxation and comfort.

Stages of connecting parts

We wrap foam rubber around the base of the frame part and glue it. We wrap tape or rope of fastenings over this layer. The frame parts should not have the same size. The parts are arranged from large to small according to the shape of the chair.

To attach the chair to the ceiling, you should make sure that its strength meets the requirements. A hook is installed in the ceiling, on which the swing is suspended.

If there is no possibility and desire to install it in the ceiling, you can use special racks that move easily and do not cause unnecessary hassle.

The use of various designs of hanging chairs in the country house or in the house creates a special individual interior. They can be used indoors, on terraces and in open areas.

But you should know that in open areas it is necessary to use non-wetting materials. Hanging chairs will create comfortable relaxation conditions for both adults and small children.

Advantages and disadvantages of hanging models

A hanging chair, like any piece of furniture, has its pros and cons. The undoubted advantages of a product made independently include originality and uniqueness. This copy is absolutely exclusive, as there are no others like it. Its second advantage can be called comfort. A comfortable soft seat that sways steadily in space promotes relaxation and tranquility.

The downside of the design is the difficulty of carrying it. Dismantling takes a lot of time, and after a massive hook the ceiling will be damaged. The chair on the stand is also too massive and heavy to be constantly moved.

At first glance, it may seem that there are no special advantages or benefits from using a hanging chair. A chair with a suspension is perceived as a fun attraction or an element of a children's playground in a summer cottage.

But as soon as you use hanging furniture for at least a couple of days, you feel the desire to make something similar for yourself, even more interesting and comfortable. But it's not even about convenience. Chairs with a hanging system differ significantly from classic designs:

  • As a rule, the suspension provides a fairly large field of view; you can easily turn in any direction of interest, turn away from the sun's rays or an annoying draft;
  • The possibility of slight rocking has a positive effect on the muscles of the back, pelvis, legs; you can spend the whole day in a hanging chair without the risk of getting a stiff back, neck or lower back;
  • A successfully selected and hand-assembled design of a hanging chair can save the muscles and joints of the legs from swelling, cramps and pain after a busy day at work.

Advice! To achieve a pronounced therapeutic effect, you will need to carefully select the design of a place to rest, since not all options for hanging benches, hammocks, and benches make it possible to effectively combat fatigue. Most apartment suspended structures are planned with a fixed stationary suspension. This allows for maximum reliability, but is not always convenient for everyday use. If you make a suspended chair with your own hands, then a scheme with a stand or support tripod would be more preferable. Such furniture can be easily assembled with your own hands outside the apartment, and, if necessary, installed in the country house, balcony, terrace, or anywhere for relaxation.

It is worth considering that, unlike ordinary upholstered furniture, a chair with a hanging mount will require additional free space, at least half a meter on each side, otherwise the main therapeutic effect of swinging will simply be impossible to achieve.

Benefits of using chair covers

A cover for a computer chair or upholstered furniture can radically change the interior, become its main element, and improve the atmosphere as a whole. It completely covers the furniture upholstery, giving it a neat look. To prevent the material from sliding off the armrests, it can be secured with additional decorative elements or ribbons.

Making a bedspread for classic furniture and a cover for a computer chair with your own hands has the following advantages:

  1. Saving money. There is no need to pay for the work of a professional seamstress, whose services are not cheap. In addition, you can choose a fabric that is affordable.
  2. Selecting suitable fabric and product design. Here the craftswoman has the right to realize all her fantasies within the chosen style. Additionally, she can decorate the cape with decorative elements.
  3. Acquiring new skills. Decorating your home is a fun activity. Having learned to sew, the housewife can refresh the interior more often.
  4. The manufacture of the case is strictly according to the parameters. There is no need to adjust the finished cape. The risk of altering the product and damaging the material is eliminated.

Chair covers not only decorate the furniture, but also protect it from dirt, damage by pets, and quick erasure of the original upholstery.

From pallets

A wooden chair made from pallets is reliable. Smooth, dried boards will not deform, but even so, they are not considered very durable. Furniture made from such materials is ideal for loft-style interiors.

Designing a wooden chair:

  1. The boards are sanded with a sander (otherwise they may simply delaminate during use).
  2. The pallets are cut into equal halves with a jigsaw, the edges are also sanded and covered with a layer of paint.
  3. A chair is assembled from the cut elements (you need to focus on the prepared drawings).
  4. Pillows are being sewn. The filling is padding polyester, foam rubber or polystyrene foam, but the fabric should be selected depending on the operating conditions.

A chair made from scrap materials in the form of a pallet will not only be durable, but also a stylish solution, and sewing comfortable decorative pillows will allow you to achieve maximum comfort.

A homemade chair will be a great addition to the existing design of the room. Don’t be afraid to use creative approaches and new drawings, as the final result depends on this. A house decorated with such a design will always look non-standard, and the product itself will become the pride of the owner.

How to sew a chair cover with your own hands

Once you have decided to create “clothes” for the chairs yourself, you need to take a number of steps. Decide on the design of the future product and what you will need to create it. Using these instructions, it is also easy to sew a cover for a computer chair with your own hands.

You can even sew a cover for a computer chair with your own hands.

Design selection

Depending on the “character” of your room or office interior, there are different styles. To ensure that the covers look harmonious against the background of other furniture and decor, choose the solution that is closest to you.

  • Patchwork is pieces of fabric sewn together in the shape of geometric shapes. You can use both bright and pastel colors of the material. And even mix them with each other. You must have skills in sewing because it is a methodical job that requires precision and accuracy.
  • Loft is expressed in the natural textures of the material. It can be fur, suede, linen. Raw edges, rough seams, and textured fabrics are welcome. This is an excellent solution for sewing a cover for an office chair.
  • Shabby chic is characterized by antiquity and a light touch of antiquity. Satin, silk and cotton fabrics with small floral patterns will look good here. Plain and printed materials are especially harmoniously combined. Shabby chic loves bows, frills, folds, ribbons and tassels.
  • The Baroque style requires pomp and royal splendor. These are elegant frills, flounces and deep folds. Here you get the impression that you are sitting not in a chair, but on a royal throne.

Preparation of materials and tools

To sew a chair cover with your own hands you will need:

  1. sewing needles or sewing machine;
  2. pins with a plug at the end for pinning the pattern to the fabric;
  3. threads for sewing to match the selected fabric;
  4. tailor's chalk or dry soap;
  5. fabric scissors;
  6. tape measure;
  7. millimeter fabric;
  8. furniture staples;
  9. decor

Before work, prepare all the necessary tools.
Cotton, nubuck, velor, flock and relax can be used as materials to create a cover.

Sewing stages

Each stage has features and nuances. First you need to measure the furniture and take measurements. Then draw a pattern, cut the fabric and sew the product. Re-reading and refreshing your memory of all the sewing steps is useful not only for beginners, but also for experienced craftsmen.

Sewing a cover has its own nuances.

Pattern creation and cutting

Be very careful when measuring the dimensions of the chair. This determines how accurately the finished product will follow the contours of the furniture. Immediately on the pattern, mark the areas where the seams will go. Draw places for future frills, folds and hems.

The dimensions of the chair must be carefully measured.

To prevent the fabric from wrinkling on the armrests and back, it is necessary to make darts. Sign the patterns together so you don't confuse them.

You can make a separate pattern for the armrests.

Make a pattern using your measurements on graph paper. The armrests are sewn double. This makes them more wear-resistant. Therefore, cut out the outer and inner sides at once.

Patterns are made based on the measurements.

Spread the fabric, attach the pattern so that the material is used as economically as possible. Trace with chalk or soap and cut out the pieces with an additional 2-5cm seam allowance. Leave about another 20cm at the bottom for hems. It is better to cut off the excess than to sew it on. Iron the cut fabric to make it easier to work with.

Lay out the pattern pieces on the fabric.


Fitting is the next step after creating the pattern. Here you polish all the nuances and correct minor defects.

  1. Lay out the cut fabric on the chair so that the piece matches its location. Pin the patterns with pins.
  2. Flatten the fabric at the folds and draw future seams.
  3. If the fabric does not fit the chair well enough, forms a “bubble” or hangs unattractively, make a dart in this place.
  4. Look at how the fabric lays at the seams so that it does not puff up or gather.
  5. Here you can sew darts so that you never have to return to them.

During the fitting process, you need to level the fabric on the chair.


Sewing all the parts together is an activity for the patient and hardworking.

  1. To prevent the finished product from becoming skewed, make the seams strictly along the lines.
  2. First of all, baste the darts and frills.
  3. From the wrong side, sweep the parts of the armrests together. Sew and cut the corners so that the piece can be beautifully turned right side out.
  4. Baste the armrests with the seat piece.
  5. Attach the backrest with the inside to the seat.
  6. Add a hem, carefully arrange all the gathers.
  7. Turn the cover right side out and try it on the chair. At this stage, inaccuracies can be adjusted.
  8. When you are completely satisfied with the result, you can sew all the basted seams on a machine.

During the sewing process, all parts are ground together.

Decor features

Various pieces of fabric, ribbons, trim, soutache, and eye-catching buttons are used for decoration. The main thing is that the decorations do not overload the furniture and do not interfere with your sitting. Therefore, for decoration, those parts of the chair with which a person has least contact are used. This could be the bottom of the furniture, the bottom of the seat and armrests, or the back of the backrest.

The free part of the chair is used for decoration.

You can make an applique, sew it with threads or put it on hot glue. But remember that the covers will have to be washed periodically.
