A hanging tipi pod can be a great addition to your home or an outdoor space. The combination of being cocooned in a dark, safe space while gently swaying creates a feeling of serenity and calm.

This guide reviews the best hanging tipi pods on the UK market this year. I’ve listed the best option for each category to make it easy to find the right hanging tipi pod, split into pods intended for kids and adults.

What stand do you need for your pod?

There are 2 ways to hang your tipi pod. The first is directly to a beam or ceiling. It will need to be secure enough to carry the maximum weight that will be used in the chair (although, for good practice, it’s best to increase the maximum weight by 20%).

If hanging directly into a beam, speak to a professional. This hook is commonly used for hanging: AMAZONAS Power Hook

The alternative is to use a stand. These are free-standing, so they don’t require drilling into any spaces. They are quick to put up and can be easily moved around should you want to take your tipi to a different room or outdoors. The best 2 stands on the market for hanging tipi pods are the:
