With spring in the air, Brits are already eager to get their outdoor space ready to enjoy the sunshine.

Summer 2020 taught us that you don't want to wait until the last minute to purchase garden furniture, as items can sell out fast.

Just yesterday 35,000 shoppers were stuck in a virtual queue trying to get their hands on Aldi’s egg chair, meanwhile every single John Lewis hanging chair online is already emblazoned with the words ‘out of stock’.

While it's almost impossible to currently find an egg chair in stock, we finally managed to find a new egg chair at B&Q that is still available, stylish and looks oh so cosy.

Why we rate it

Unlike other egg chairs the Apolima Rattan Effect Egg Chair isn't a hanging design, which according to the reviews, many shoppers actually prefer.

The large egg shape offers optimum comfort for relaxing moments in the sunshine, not to mention it's stylish rattan-effect frame is the perfect trendy addition to any outdoor sanctuary.

The chair also comes with two cosy looking cushions and is made from steel with a synthetic rattan frame making it sturdy and water resistant (although B&Q do suggest you protect the chair with a cover when not in use).

While assembly is required, a quick scroll through the comments will assure you that it's quick and easy,

What the reviews say

Despite being new in, the Apolima Rattan effect Egg Chair has received high praise from shoppers.

  • "I fell in love with this chair when I saw it. I don’t personally like the hanging ones as I suffer with vertigo. This chair is so comfortable it easily fits two adults. It’s very sturdy, the cushions are good quality, the whole thing looks way more expensive than it was. It fitted together easily, took my husband and I about 15 minutes."

  • "So glad I went for this and not a hanging one as I can wriggle about to my heart's content and still feel very stable. Put it together single-handedly. Super snuggly."

  • "We totally love it, it’s comfortable and big enough for two people and a perfect haven whatever the weather. Great to relax in. Although the price might be slightly higher than other chairs I have seen, you definitely get what you pay for."

  • "What a gorgeous chair. Really striking and comfortable too. It's much deeper than I realised, you can sit right back in it, and much wider, all three of my children can fit in at once. Looking up on a sunny day, I feel like I'm on holiday."

  • "I absolutely love this chair. It was a lockdown gift from my husband. It is so comfy every time I sit on it I end up curled up and snoozing. Really comfy and stylish."
