Are you looking for a piece of furniture that provides the maximum amount of comfort? A papasan chair is one of the most comfortable pieces of furniture that you will find – it's large shape is enough to cradle any adult and the curved shape makes it a versatile item that can double up as a small bed.

A papasan chair, also called a moon chair, is a large bowl-shaped chair which rests in a rattan, wicker or wooden frame. The cushion is typically made of thick fabric and filled with cotton fluff.

Papasan chairs are typically 35–60 inches wide and 35 inches deep.

Rocking papasan chair

The modern look of this chair is created using natural wooden beams and other pieces. The rounded shape ensures that you have stability when positioning yourself on the chair, but then the ability to rock yourself once you are comfortable. A thick padded cushion covers the inner part of the chair to enable the user to sit or lie comfortably.

Papasan swing chair

Aside from being a feature piece and attracting attention in any home, it's also very comfortable and allows you to gently rock while you're relaxing. A papasan swing chair normally has lace or other material attached to it which all gathers at the top where the chair is affixed to the ceiling. There are various sizes available, from seats large enough for just one person to those big enough to seat four.

With a rattan or wooden frame and a more upright back than some of the other style of papasan chairs available, the Bohemian style chair is ideal for traditional homes. The attention is usually draw to the attractive oriental or Bohemian patterns which can be found on the cushions of these chairs.

Minimalist bamboo papasan chair

Buying a modern papasan chair can be a challenge when you have a home already decorated and furnished, so you might want to consider the simple bamboo design. It is rounded and comfortable with individual bamboo sticks which connect on to thicker stronger bamboo pieces to create a solid and modern seat. You can then add your own individual cushions to match the décor you already have.

Leather papasan chair

If you're not a fan of the wooden look and you want something which is instantly comfortable without having to add extra cushions, the leather papasan chair could be a good option for you. The appearance of this chair is very modern and will suit any contemporary home. It is rounded and chunky in style, and some designs even have a chrome ring around the bottom on which the chair can recline if necessary.

Enclosed papasan chair

The final style of papasan chair to consider is the enclosed design, which enables you to have some extra privacy within your home or in other situations. Around a foot taller than many other papasan chairs and including a piece which extends almost all the way around the seat, you can truly hide away with your favorite book or movie.
