Flowerhouse Sports Hanging Lounge Chair
Fun, sporty, stylish, and comfortable. If you’re a sports fan, these are fantastic outdoor chairs you’ll be thrilled to own. The Flowerhouse Sports Hanging Lounge Chair is recommended for anyone weighing up to 400 pounds who’s looking for a fun, sports-themed chair for outdoor use.
Are you a fan of basketball, football or soccer? Do you enjoy outdoor entertaining? Do you weigh more than 300-pounds? If you answered yes to those three questions, then you’re going to like what you read in this review.
The simple truth is that most of the furniture on the market today, whether indoor or out, aren’t designed with bigger, taller, or heavier users in mind. If you fall into that category, most of the furniture available is useless to you. The sports-themed chairs offered by FlowerHouse are a happy exception to this rule, supporting a more generous 400 pounds of user weight.
We’ll be quick to admit that the FlowerHouse Sports Hanging Lounge chairs aren’t perfect. In fact, they’re definitely niche products. If you’re not a sports fan, you’re almost certain not to want one. If you are, though, then they definitely deserve a spot on your shortlist for consideration.
These are fun pieces of outdoor furniture that will add a certain flair to the outdoor spaces around your home, and in the sections that follow, we’ll tell you everything they have to offer. If that sounds good to you, read on, and let’s take a closer look.
An Overview of the FlowerHouse Sports Ball Hanging Chair
The first thing to mention about the FlowerHouse Sports Hanging Lounge chairs is the fact that if you decide you want one (or more), you can get yours in one of three styles. Yours can be in the shape of a basketball, a football, or a soccer ball, depending on which sports you’re most interested in. In terms of basic stats, here’s what you’re looking at:
The frame that the chair itself hangs on is fashioned from sleek black tubed steel, which supports an impressive amount of user weight while keeping the weight low enough that it’s at least possible to move them around if you need to, but note that these aren’t lightweight chairs. Most people will probably be able to move them around on their own, but it would be a whole lot easier to have some help when doing so.
Note that the feet of the frame sport rubberized caps that will help spare your flooring if you decide you want to use this chair indoors. It’s a fairly big piece of furniture, and unless your entire room is sports-themed, it will look a bit out of place, but it could be a perfect fit for a sports lover's bedroom or a large game room in your home.
Adjustability and Comfort
There’s nothing adjustable about the FlowerHouse Sports Ball Hanging chairs, so nothing to say on that front. Comfort-wise, however, you’ll be pleasantly surprised. These are hanging swing chairs. They completely surround you when you sit in them, providing a comfortable, swinging seat and a canopy to shade you from the sun.
The stretchy, elastic material is breathable, and each variant of the chair boasts a large, removable seat pad that’s generously padded with poly fiberfill that’s delightfully comfortable. Even better, the material is durable, quick-drying, and weather-resistant, making these chairs an ideal addition for your patio or deck.
Note that whichever variant of the chair you opt for, you will find one fun “extra” on offer, in the form of a fabric pocket built into the side that’s big enough to serve as a cup holder, allowing you to curl up in the chair on game day with a cold drink and a bowl of chips in your lap and cheer your favorite team on.
Assembly is Required
It probably comes as no great surprise, but when the sports chair of your choice arrives at your door, it will be in a big box and in several pieces. While the FlowerHouse Sports Swing chair itself doesn’t require any assembly (all you have to do is hang it), you will have to spend some time assembling the frame.
Unfortunately, the frame of the chair probably doesn’t look like anything you’ve ever put together before, which will slow the process down at least slightly. On the flip side, there are only a handful of pieces to contend with, the production quality is decent, and the pieces of the frame go together easily enough. That, combined with reasonably clear assembly instructions, will see you completing the process in about twenty minutes, counting unboxing and sorting.
Note that there is no expert assembly option available with these chairs, so you’ll have to do it yourself or enlist the aid of a trusty assistant if you don’t like putting your own furniture together.
Pros and Cons of Flowerhouse Sports Hanging Lounge Chair
As we said at the start, these chairs are niche products, no doubt. If you’re not a fan of basketball, football, or soccer, then you won’t give them a second thought. If you are a fan and you’re looking for some indoor/outdoor furniture to create a sports-themed aesthetic for your deck, patio, or game room, these chairs are a perfect fit.
Also note that FlowerHouse is a small brand that doesn’t have any reputation for post-sales support, so if you encounter a problem with this chair, getting help from the company might be a bit of an adventure.
FlowerHouse Sports Hanging Lounge Chair Review Conclusion
We like the FlowerHouse Sports Hanging Lounge chairs, but we don’t love them. They’re interesting and unusual chairs, but unless you’re dedicating an entire room or your whole deck or patio to sports theme, you’re going to struggle to figure out what to do with one of these. On that basis, we provisionally recommend the chair.
