There’s nothing quite like the relaxation you get from swaying back and forth in a hammock while staring at the sky, reading, or napping. Nicer weather is on the way, and IKEA released new hammocks to ensure we can all bask in it.
The Swedish chain’s new striped hammock is called Solblekt, which means "sun-bleached" in Swedish—and instantly conjures images of bright summer days. It comes in green, yellow, and blue or orange, white, and blue in a durable fabric made from recycled polyester, for $39.99. The accompanying stand, which is called Gårö, is available for $70.
If the striped fabric is a little too beachy for your liking, IKEA is selling another hammock option called Risö in a solid orange or green color for $25. It comes with hooks for hanging instead of rope on the ends for tying, plus there’s a side pouch to store snacks, books, sunglasses, and whatever else you want to have on you. If you like the pale orange color, you have the option to buy it with the stand for a total of $95.
Whether you go for solid or striped, these hammocks are sure to up your summer game. It might be time to replace your overused hammock this season or finally give in to the trend with one of these. Oh, and you don't have to have a backyard to enjoy one. If you have the space, put it in your living room and crack a window. You have to work with what you've got, right?
