An eye-catching hanging pod chair will add a unique visual appeal to many rooms or other spaces, but choosing the best one will require a bit of research and thought. Start by determining where the hanging pod chair will be placed; this will have an impact both on the color and style you choose, and the method by which the chair will be hung. Measure the space carefully, and take note of where ceiling beams are located above. The chair must be hung from a beam; otherwise, you will need to choose a model that includes a metal stand from which the chair can be hung.

The materials used to build a hanging pod chair can vary significantly. Lucite® or plexiglass can be used, as can fiberglass, wicker, and other types of plastic. The materials used will have an impact on the visual appeal of the chair as well as the strength and design, so be sure to research the available styles for each material used to construct a hanging pod chair. The cost of the chair will also be affected according to the types of materials used, as well as the overall design. Wicker, for example, is in some cases woven by hand, which can raise the price of some models.

Once you have decided what kind of aesthetic you are going for, consider whether the chair will be hung indoors or outdoors. A hanging pod chair intended for outdoor use will need to be protected from the elements, which means the materials themselves will need to be water-resistant or waterproof. The chair can otherwise become damaged quickly. A chair that is used outdoors will also require a stable metal stand from which the chair can be hung; the metal base should be aesthetically pleasing and complementary to the chair itself, but more importantly, it should be resistant to water damage such as rust and rot.

If possible, test out any hanging pod chair you are considering by sitting in it for several minutes. This will give you a better feel for the comfort level of the chair, especially after the cushions settle under your weight. Be sure the chair is easy to get into and out of and the upholstery is high-quality, easily cleaned, and comfortable for long periods of sitting. The chair itself should be stable and well-constructed; if the chair has joints or weaves, be sure to check these carefully for quality of construction.
