I recently acquired a hanging rattan chair from Serena and Lily (it appears to be sold out, but they have the double-wide version in stock), but I haven’t yet asked my landlords if it’s OK to drill a hole into one of their beautiful wood ceiling beams to hang it. And I’m scared to do so because really I should have done that before getting the chair but I figured it would be OK—but what if it isn’t! I can’t face it because obviously our living room is screaming out for that chair, as is every beach house in the world.
In the meantime, I’m admiring how others—homeowners or people who had the guts to ask their landlords about drilling holes—styled their hanging rattan chairs. The one above is my favorite. It could never be a reality for me with a toddler around—that white would not be white for long. But it’s extremely pleasing to the eye isn’t it?
Have ever ever hung a rattan chair? Do you have a story about how easy and not-harmful to the ceiling beams it was? Please share!
