The hammock is the epitome of relaxation, and the hammock chair is the more convenient and practical version of its close relative. Being a lot more space efficient, having a large area dedicated to your hammock is not as necessary. The variety of availability is endless, with more rigid modern styles as well as your classic woven options.

What you need to look for

Material

The main question is, do you plan on the chair going inside your home or out in the backyard? A weatherproof material is going to be critical if you want to have any sort of longevity with an outdoor hammock. The sun, rain and wind can do some quick damage to a material that is not ready for the elements. Woven options provide a breezier experience but can get tangled or snagged on branches if they are set up in a windy location. The more rigid hammocks will provide the most reliable support but tend to be on the pricier side.

The Set Up

The classic way to get your hammock up is hanging it up in a tree, but there are plenty of other ways to enjoy the fruits of relaxing without one. Another fun way to set up is to hang it from a beam in your house or patio. The very obvious caution to be aware of is the weight capacities of what you are hanging it on. There are too many YouTube fail videos of this exact issue to make the same mistake yourself. Definitely better to be safe than sorry. This is especially true when so many brands offer stands with their hammocks, or you can always buy one separately. This allows for the most versatility with your placement —inside, outside, patio, grass, poolside, porch swing; the choice is yours!
