Egg chairs are everywhere. The perfect summer seating arrangement, it's no wonder they're forever flying off shelves.

Since making a comeback in 2021, they've become a permanent part of garden collections from the likes of Aldi and John Lewis and we've just discovered an affordable design from Dunelm.

Costing £199, it's more affordable than most of its competitors and boasts hundreds of five-star reviews.

We don't imagine it will hang around for long, so if you want to get your hands on it, make sure you move fast.

Why we rate it

This modern, minimalistic design is both fashionable and functional, not to mention will fit in most gardens.

It's made with a durable metal frame and the cosy cushion comes included. Perfect for catching some rays, Aperol Spritz in hand.

What the reviews say

Speaking of reviews, there are over 450 five-star ratings of this egg chair, which have given us plenty of reasons to add it to our basket before it sells out ahead of summer. Here's just a snippet:

  • "I can honestly say that this piece of furniture is absolutely fantastic and ticks all the boxes. It is extremely well designed, and very well made. I purchased this for my wife, who said that it is so comfortable she finds it difficult to stay awake when sat in it. I can also reiterate her statement, so much so I purchased another one for myself, however Bella the Staffie also seems to thoroughly enjoy it. I can wholeheartedly say that I unequivocally recommend this product."

  • "Top quality chair ! Perfect for my conservatory! Well made product and takes an hour or so to assemble. Everyone comments on it and sooooo comfortable too!"

  • "This chair is amazing. Amazing size and super comfortable. Delivery was always up to date and the delivery guys were so helpful. The instructions were very easy and the chair was pretty straight forward to put together. Highly recommend. Best chair I have seen out there for the price. The quality of it is outstanding."

  • "Great quality and soooo comfortable. So glad we got this one with the open base at the front, makes getting in and out much easier than the full circle based chairs I've tried in other stores. I'm quite short and find the depth of seat perfect and can sit comfortably facing forward and to the side with my foot poking out of the gap. Tempted to get another one for a different part of the garden."

  • "Love the egg chair. Very roomy and can sit comfortably sideways. Good quality, looks great and fits well in the corner of my Lanai. Took my son less than an hour to put together . Delivery was excellent with frequent updates before and on the day. Only problem is you want to spend all of your time sat in it!"
