Traditional hammocks are not traditional in the sense of original,
but more of a style of hammock. For example, the American style
hammock is designed with more of a simplistic design and features,
much what you would find with Early American type furniture. The
spreaders are beautifully varnished, and the hammock features nice
fringes. This particular hammock is 12 feet in length, meaning a
person that was 6 foot, four inches would be comfortable. This
style hammock comes in cotton natural, and is a great buy for only
Mayan Hammocks is a great place to buy hammocks constructed with
spreader bars. They specially design the spreaders using a thick,
cotton cord, which provides the most comfortable hammock around.
The spreader is perfectly set so the hammock itself is even and
smooth. If you want a hammock to sit outdoors where you can relax
whenever you like, this would be ideal.
Mayan also designs magnificent hammock chairs. Each chair is made
of excellent quality cotton or nylon, and guaranteed for comfort
and durability. These hanging chairs can be placed indoors using
the proper hooks and equipment for hanging, or outdoors using a tree,
pole, stand, or even the cross beams of your patio. Teenagers
especially love hammock chairs because in addition to their comfort,
they look "cool". You will find designs more subdued for adults in
a living room, and brighter, more fun colors for the teenagers in
Additionally, if you have a son or daughter heading off to college
but you know the dorm has no room for a chair, a hanging hammock
chair is the perfect solution. You are guaranteed your child will
be the envy of many people. Best of all, you can find hammock
chairs ranging in price from $50 to $75, which is a great bargain.
The spreader used on the hammock chair is 3.5 feet wide, giving the
tassels an original look. You should hang the chair from six to
eight feet high for the best comfort, and if you want to share it
with a friend, it can hold up to 400 pounds.
No matter which traditional hammock style you choose, especially if
it will be outside and exposed to inclement weather, be sure to
purchase a Hammock Sock to go over the hammock for protection. This
will keep your hammock clean, safe, and it will last longer.
