Summer is officially around the corner. Many of us are starting to think about how to turn our outdoor space into our own personal corner of paradise. A good starting point is, of course, garden furniture, with pizza ovens, barbecues and fire pits also helping you ace al fresco entertaining this summer. Should you be after a statement piece for your patio, let us point you in the direction of Aldi’s egg chair.

The stylish swinging cocoon can cost an arm and a leg, depending on where you shop. Luckily, the budget-friendly supermarket’s cult favourite egg chair is back in stock and comes in at under £150. The affordable price means that the chair has been famously known to go out of stock almost as soon as it hits the (online) shelves, so, we’d imagine it won’t hang around for long.

Held up by a steel frame measuring in at 195cm tall and 100cm wide, the chair itself is suspended with a 19cm long fixing chain which should allow the chair to sway slightly as you relax inside. And, owing to the being protected with UV-resistant materials and a water-repellent cover for defending against the temperamental British weather, it should be a pretty low-maintenance purchase, too.

Should you need any more convincing, the supermarket’s sell-out design was dubbed the “best affordable egg chair” in our review of the best egg chairs, with our tester noting that it “proves consistently good value for money compared to other similar products on the market”.

The writer added that it looks and feels “much more expensive than it is, the egg chair boasts a synthetic polyethylene wicker in an imperfect criss-cross weave, which gives it an artisanal quality”.
