A Quiet Place: Hanging Hammocks Indoors

A Quiet Place: Hanging Hammocks Indoors

As these unique spaces show, hammocks needn't be reserved for outdoor use. If you pick the right color and silhouette, you can use one to create a well-designed, laid-back space (that doesn't look like an ill-conceived college dorm room). The key seems to be leaving the rest of the room relatively sparse. That way, the hammock becomes an eye-catching focal point, rather than claustrophobia-inducing clutter. 1. The vibrant hammock in this Stockholm loft looks like an ideal reading spot. Via Freshome. 2. A grass green hammock looks soothing against wood walls in architect Craig Steely's Hawaiian house. Via Dwell. 3. A bare-boned leather version designed by Jim Zivic looks sculptural against floor-to-ceiling windows. 4. A plush, cozy La Beanock hammock chair hangs in a modern loft. 5. A hammock creates a pretty, cream-colored accent in this room in the Nu Hotel. Images: 1. Eklund Stockholm New York via Freshome 2. Linny Morris Cunningham for Dwell 3.
