The hammock was first used between 450-404 B.C. by one of Socrates students. Sometime in the 1700s, it is reported that Christopher Columbus brought the hammock back to Europe from the islands he had explored. In their early days, hammocks were constructed with tree bark sisal leaves. Today's hammocks are constructed with fabrics such as cotton, polyester, Nylon, Olefin and Nylon Silk. Along with the many fabrics used to make hammocks, the design styles have improved.
Undoubtedly, there are lots of advantages of using hammocks like you can keep your back in comfortable position, keep insects away from you and many more. But, do you really know something about the history of your comfy hammock? Probably not and that's the reason why it is worth taking a look at it.
Some types of hammocks, such as Brazilian and Mayan hammocks, are hung directly from trees, posts, ceiling joists etc, however, other hammocks have to be attached to a hammock stand to make them useable. You can buy these types of hammocks in packages, and the stand and hammock will come together, ready to be set up. If you have found yourself in need of a stand, however, then you'll need to know if your hammock has "spreader bars" or not.
Hammock chairs are great for the rainy or winter seasons, when heading outdoors for a nap might not be a possibility. The hammock chair is compact, and can be set up indoors without much hassle. These are great for lounging with a good book or some comfort food. If you want to hang your hammock indoors, however, you will have to invest in a hammock stand.
