If you're not lucky enough to live in a home with an outdoor space, that doesn't mean you can't enjoy the lovely, layabout feeling of a summer afternoon spent drowsing away on the porch. Things like hammocks and swings and hanging chairs aren't just for outside: you can also, if you're feeling a bit adventurous (and have the right hardware!) add one to your living room.

Rubyellen from Cakies hung a hammock in her living room, which has become a favorite with adults and kids alike.

I'm partial to hanging chairs, like this one in a home from The Style Files. Sitting in one, I imagine, would be a bit like an instant vacation.

Few things compare to the childlike joy one feels on a swing. My apartment might be a bit too small to swing freely without knocking into something, but if it wasn't I would definitely be looking at making this DIY swing from Park & Cube.

If swings seem a bit tame to you, why not try a trapeeze? This one is located in the living room of a Brooklyn home spotted on A Cup of Jo.

This hammock/beanbag combo is called Le Beanock, and is a real thing you can (and probably should) buy for your living room.
