Soft Grey Hammock
This free standing hammock offers relaxation in style, with a soft, quilted swing designed for maximum comfort. The stand set comprises a strong, powder-coated steel frame that’s sturdy and long-lasting and the swing is made from showerproof fabric to withstand surprise drops of rain.
Valencia Tassel Swing Chair
Cocoon yourself in this swinging hammock hand made from up-cycled cotton on a pinewood pole. The fabric sling is easy to slip off for washing to help keep it fresh or for storage in the winter.
Maximus Hanging Hammock Chair
A twist on the classic swinging hammock, this woven hanging chair offers a bohemian vibe to the garden, balcony or terrace. The macrame style and tassel trim give it a relaxed, summery feel and the padded, 100% cotton cushion (which comes included) gives added cocooned comfort.
Fatboy Headdepleck Hammock
Fatboy are known for their extra squashy and oversized home furnishings and this garden hammock is no exception. Big enough for two (up to 150kg total weight), it’s available in a choice of four colours. It’s wall-mountable but this swinging hammock also features special “tree-hugger” straps, which can be attached around tree trunks or posts.
This traditional swinging hammock (stand not included) has a cotton and polyester mix sling, so it can be enjoyed both inside and outdoors. The neutral beige tones make it a classic, understated addition to your garden and it’s the perfect relaxation spot for lazy afternoons.
SoBuy Hammock Swing
This free standing hammock is fitted to a crescent-shaped stand which also includes a parasol to provide some much-needed relief from the sun’s rays. The padded sling cushions are included with the stand, as is the additional head rest which can be attached for tailored comfort and relaxation.
This simple swinging hammock would make the perfect relaxed reading corner or a great hide-out for an afternoon doze. The woven hem and fringed tassels add a touch of boho chic to an otherwise pared back classic sling.
This wide, garden hammock can take up to 200kg at a time and has been classically designed to exude that traditional beach island look. The hammock can be simply tied between two trees or posts and folds away into a drawstring bag for easy storage, so it’s great for taking away on holidays with you too.
TecTake Wooden Double Hammock
This double-sized hammock with stand set is a sophisticated take on the traditional beach-side sling. The curved wooden stand provides a hull-like support for the extra-large swing which, thanks to adjustable stainless steel suspension cables, can hold up to 200kg at a time.
For a touch of retro, this rainbow woven hammock has all the character without the fuss. A simple design, the single-person hammock can be hung between trees to provide a relaxed garden hideout reminiscent of any desert island.
