If you remember this post, then you know how much we love having an indoor hammock. It really is one of our favorite spots in the house. For the kids, it’s like having an indoor swing, so you can imagine all the fun they have in it. I am convinced everyone should have an indoor hammock.
We love hammocks so much we got this beautiful Nicaraguan hammock. I love our colorful one, and I love big punches of color with our white-washed floors and white walls, but the fringe on our colorful hammock drove me crazy. Every time the girls swing on it, they step on the fringe and it comes off. So once or twice a week, I would have to crochet (because I am annoyingly anal like that) all the fringe back on. This hammock has the beautiful detailing, but will save me some extra time a week.
I know some of you have commented (and emailed) me about where to purchase my colorful hammock, but I couldn’t really lead you anywhere because it was from Anthro two years ago and it just isn’t around anymore. The weave on this one is actually thicker than our colorful one and it is bigger that even Ben can get in with both the two big girls cuddling beside him with more room to spare! This new one lacks the spread bar, which I thought would make it harder for the kids to get in, but it is no problem.
Um… I wonder how many indoor hammocks are allowed in a house?!
***UPDATE*** I’ve edited the post to remove the name of the store this hammock came from because I’ve heard from a couple of you that that particular shop hasn’t been reliable of late, so I would suggest googling “Nicaraguan hammocks” if you want one similar in style to mine. Hopefully you can find another shop who has good customer service to back up their products. See comments of other readers below of the bad experience they had with that shop, so I no longer recommend ordering from Almanza Hammock.
