Hippie vans and old-timey naval vessels are no longer the only places hammocks are hung. These days you’ll find them pretty much everywhere, from condos, to offices and even bathrooms. Want proof? Start scrolling.

It’s not really a hammock if it’s made of carbon fiber, is it? Oh well. More bizarre bathing options this way.

The wooden Seora La Seora Alpine is held together by Olympic sailing rope, which means it can endure even the coldest climate.

Looks good poolside too

Choose canvas over rope and you won’t wake up every morning with patterns in your skin.

As a dock
