There's something about hammocks and hanging chairs that entice you to chill out, relax and just hang about with not a care in the world. They can magically transport you to a place of complete serenity. With all the stresses in our lives, it's important to factor in chill-out zones in our homes. And while you'd expect to see a hammock or hanging chair out on the deck or by the pool, have you thought about placing one indoors? Pretty freakin' awesome, if you ask me! That's not to say you shouldn't have them outdoors. Go for it! Of course, they're a little trickier to install than opting for a simple armchair - you need to ensure you bolt them to support beams in the ceiling or wall. This is important so you and your ceilings don't come crashing down! But once installed properly, they can provide a fun and playful element to your home. And that can't be a bad thing in my book. There's also a childlike quality to things that hang and swing in the air, encouraging squeals of delight. Coupled with a cocktail in hand, they're the perfect recipe for total bliss.
