Perfect seating or anything else?
Certainly you have seen in the furniture shop many chic hanging chair models. Just do not think that’s something new for the outdoors. No, these peculiar pieces of furniture look back on a long history. We find its origin in the Maya about 1000 years ago. The English word for it was”hamack”and the spanish equivalent”hamaca”.
Both terms can be translated into German as a”thrown net”and thus the function of the former hammock mats as a fishing net clearly shows its effect. Practically one could sleep in such a net undisturbed as it was suspended between two trees. Christopher Columbus was also fascinated by this outdoor solitude, which he discovered in the Bahamas in 1492, and brought the hammock to Europe. Since that time, the hanging chair (still called hammock or hanging seat) finds a wide use not only in the outdoor area, these pieces of furniture are also stylishly integrated into the interior.

Size, design and manufacturing materials for hanging chairs
Size, design and manufacturing materials for hanging chairs have also changed, but the main function of the relaxation was maintained. The most popular models are now chic hanging couches that float back and forth on a wooden spreader bar. The models of rattan or polyrattan are preferred for hanging chairs. There is also a seat surface made of fabric or plastic and a cable system made of cords. The dynamic rocking is comfortable, but also extremely relaxing and soothing. But the size of such a piece of furniture is closely related to its design. For models for adults, the spreader bar should be at least 1 m high so that the chair is comfortable. There are also great designs not just for one but for two people. Various materials can be used in the production of this piece of furniture. The Maya used to use fibers from the bark of the Hamak tree for their hanging mats. The classic model is now made of lint-free cotton.
