World's most cheerful chair? Here's a roundup of our rattan-inspired favorite swings (with a few fabric options for hammock lovers). Take note that natural rattan is best when it's kept in a dry location—perfect for hanging on a covered porch or indoors from a ceiling beam (bring that summer feeling inside). Want to hang a chair from a branch in the garden? Synthetic rattan to the rescue. Several of our selections are made from weather-resistant fibers. If you prefer something more horizontal, see  10 Relaxation-Inducing Indoor Hammocks .  Above: The Original Cobble Mountain Chair  is handmade in Vermont and has a bentwood frame of locally harvested oak.
