Hammocks are a great way to find complete relaxation. They are most often used in the outdoors, although hammocks and hammock chairs designed for indoors are becoming increasingly popular.  Many people choose a hammock based on the aesthetic values of the hammock. This is a common mistake. When choosing a hammock it is important to consider how it will be used, and where it will be used. Some hammocks require supporting beams or trees to tie the hammock to, others require more space to allow for a frame. The location is also important. In warmer climates it may be best to choose a rope hammock to allow airflow. In cooler climates a rope hammock may cause guests to become too cold with the chilly breezes. In these situations a quilted hammock would provide insulation and warmth from the environment.  Homify has scoured the globe for hammocks and have found these top ideas for inspiration.

The Hammock Chair

Indoor hammocks have gained popularity in recent years. Hammocks are no longer the exclusive domain of the outdoors. Indoor hammocks come in a variety of types. Some come with their own frames, requiring more space. Other hammocks are frameless, but require them to be suspended from the roof, or an exposed beam. This hammock chair is a good example of this. This simple and super comfortable hammock chair is suspended from a single point to the ceiling. Be sure that wherever you suspend the hammock from is strong enough to hold the weight. This stylish chair hammock is a fun and colourful addition to this space. The bright colours contrast nicely with the neutral shades in the rest of this room. Have fun with hammocks, put them in unusual and surprising locations.

The Hanging Frame Hammock

Hammocks are essentially a structure that allows you to sit or lie whilst being suspended.  The main difference between hammocks is how they are suspended and the structure of their form. This amazing hammock is a unique example. It consists of a circular metal frame with timber boards topped with a mattress and a pillow. This frame is then suspended from a single point at the top. The main requirement of this hammock would be a strong anchor point from which to suspend it. This would need to be strong enough to support the weight of an adult. The design of this hammock is stunning. The white mattress contrasts well with the wood, and the stainless steel structure of the frame. It creates a very tempting seat to enjoy in the late Sunday afternoon in the sun. This hammock is made by Trinity Hammocks from Thailand.

The Party Hammock

Hammocks are often known as places where one can relax and read in peaceful solitude. This hammock is not such a hammock. It is the social hammock. This structure combines three hammocks together.This creates a unique shared space. This hammock can accommodate three people at the same time.   This provides a great opportunity to read, chat or enjoy a cup of tea or a cocktail with friends. This amazing hammock has its own frame supporting the entire weight. A large framed hammock such as this can take up more space, but is flexible as it can be set up anywhere. The hammocks are presented in a dark brown and white colour, which allows them to reflect the colours of the outdoors. This amazing hammock would make a great addition to any background entertainment space.

The Quilted Hammock

Certain hammocks are suited to certain climates. This quilted hammock is definitely suited to a cooler climate. This thick and comfortable hammock would provide a warm and comfortable seat in a cooler climate as the quilt provides extra protection from the cool breezes. It would be a fantastic addition to any garden during the slightly cooler autumn or early spring seasons. The earliest form of hammock was a simple piece of fabric strung between two trees. This hammock is based on this form. The hammock is supported on both ends by a rope, which is secured to a tree. This gives the impression of the hammock being suspended in mid air. This is a stunning design. The bold red colour stands out beautifully against the natural green grass.

There is nothing as beautiful as the warm tones of timber in the outdoors. This stunning hammock reflects this. This hammock is supported by a solid timber frame. The frame consists of a series of curved timber segments, the arrangement of which creates a work of art unto itself. The seat of the hammock is a stunning chocolate brown quilted fabric. This is a great hammock for any garden that is subjected to cooler weather through autumn and spring. The quilted fabric keeps the guest warm against any cool breezes.  This is a great hammock to have in a garden as it has its own frame, allowing it to be used in any area of the garden. Spend many hours relaxing in the comfort of this hammock as the stresses of the outside world drift by.

The Double Hammock

One of the joys of a hammock is to feel the freedom of weightlessness. This is a wonderful feeling. It can be even better when you can share this with friends. These double hammocks allow you to share wonderful times with those that you love. This hammock is a simple design, based on the suspended hammock system. Above the hammock is a spreader bar that allows the hammock to be hung from a single point. Once it has been fixed to a strong anchor point it is time for everyone to jump on board. This is a simply wonderful way to share a quiet Sunday afternoon with friends. The bright colours mimic the traditional Mexican hammocks which may inspire frequent afternoon siestas.

Hammocks are most often used in the garden. It is not uncommon for them to stay in the same place, suspended for days, if not weeks. This may be a problem for some hammocks. The fabric can get wet from rain, causing mould to set in. They can also be left in the full sun, causing the fabric to fade and damaging the fibres. There is one new hammock that is perfectly suited to these outdoor conditions; the timber hammock. This is a completely new and unique hammock. It is made from curved English Oak, ensuring the ultimate comfort. This stunning design is available as a whole package with the frame and hammock, or if you have a place to suspend the hammock, just the hammock alone. This hammock is made in the United Kingdom by Hertfordshire Hammocks.

The Hammock Dream

Hammocks are most commonly used in the great outdoors. In the warmer weather they provide a great way to keep cool, allowing the breezes to cool and refresh. What better place in the outdoors to enjoy a hammock than the beach.  Having a hammock on the beach has been an impossibility in the past as there is nothing for it to be secured to. This was however before this amazing hammock was designed. This hammock is the dream item for any beach lover. This structure combines three hammocks in a single structure. It not only allows for three people to enjoy the beach in ultimate comfort, but also provides protection from the sun. This is a wonderful way to impress friends and family. It can be used at the beach, but also any other outdoor space. It is one of the most versatile hammocks available. 

Hammocks are a wonderful place to relax. The mere weightless feeling of lying in a hammock creates an instant feeling of relaxation and calmness. There are so many hammocks to choose from. The choice is completely dependent on the purpose and location where the hammock is to be used. Suspended hammocks look wonderful, but are dependent on having somewhere to suspend them. Freestanding hammocks can be used anywhere, but often take up a lot of space and can be cumbersome. Whatever the choice, there are some amazing hammocks to choose from. These are just a small selection. For more inspiration consider 5 Cheap Hammocks for your Home.
