The View From My Hammock Chait

The View From My Hammock Chair

Hello Bay Hammocks,

I find myself in the need of a second chair hammock.  After installing the first red one, I constantly find myself in the scenario of “if I move my feet, I lose my seat” …. to the kids.  That chair hammock has become the the focal point of my cottage.  Family and guests alike place themselves in the swing as soon as they arrive.  Being on an island in the middle of the lake, friends join me every morning for coffee, at which point the feud begins as to who gets that seat of honor.  It is so comfortable and therefore all of the other chairs become situated around it.  It’s placement allows for a great view of the sunsets from my deck, feet up and a beer in hand.  Can’t get any better than that.   So!  I need a second one please … one for me!  Forest green and made of nylon.  What can you do for me?

Many people ask what the difference is between a hammock chair, a hammock swing and a hanging chair.The answer? Their really is little difference, although you will find many versions of a hanging chair. I can remember when we used to hang wicker tub chairs in our livingroom, (it was a 60s thing!). Today there is a product called an air chair – cannot figure this one out, but it does not look very comfortable to me. Hammock chairs are great. You can swing in them or curl up to read a book while the chair hugs your body close. We use a hanging chair and a hammock porch swing in our shop as seating in our “”conference room”. We have pretty informal meetings at the Bay Hammock Company, but they are exciting enough that no one falls asleep.
