Impeccable taste in rope hammocks….
I consider myself (ahem) a woman of impeccable taste. No doubt, I can spot quality when I see it.
If you show me five dresses and want me to rank them from least to most expensive, I can easily oblige.
Ditto for home goods.
Recently I was at a grad party and saw a hammock swinging in the far-off distance. I knew exactly what I was staring at. A Nags Head Hammock and a vintage one at that. That logo was still blazing strong on the spreader bars!
I asked the homeowner how old the hammock was and she said at least 30 years. She was in her 40s and the hammock was purchased by her parents when she was a kid!
30 years down the road and still functions just as well as the day it was purchased. Sure, it was a little stained and the spreader bars a little worn, but for being left outside was still in marvelous condition.
That’s what it means to purchase a hammock from Nags Head Hammocks! Quality over a lifetime.
We all know that we are not getting this type of fairy tale ending with a cheapie hammock bought at a big box store.
You get what you pay for in life. Buy cheap and replace. Invest in quality and never buy again.
Never too late to savor summer in a rope hammock…..
Summer is flying by. So there’s never a better time to savor every minute of it.
You could sit on your couch inside and be comfortable. But why not live your best life in a hammock outdoors with a breeze?
Owning a hammock is a lot like buying a puppy. Once you get one, you think to yourself….I need more of these.
At our Lake Cottage, we actually have two hammocks. One for Tom and a few kids and one for me and a few kids. Sounds fair enough!
It’s the only way to have peace. Otherwise, we would be fighting over the one hammock.
Maybe you need a hammock at your primary residence, your cottage or Lake house or even that cabin in the woods.
Beach front? You’ll need at least two hammocks. Grandkids? I can’t even count how many you’ll need.
Comfortable, reliable and fun, hammocks are the way to live life.
Swaying in the breeze and busting out a book or your favorite magazine (Birds and Blooms every time please). It’s essential you get some time to relax.
School and that more intense work schedule arrives in fall, time to chill while you still can!
Getting roped in by a Nags Head Hammock
New to the hammock scene? Then it’s time you tried a hammock. A rope hammock is an ideal place to start.
While there are pros and cons to any type of hammock, one aspect of a rope hammock I really appreciate is how air flows freely through the crevices.
Perfect on a really hot day! Debris-like leaves and twigs fall through the cracks as well.
A Nags Head Hammock is simply the best as it’s handcrafted with DuraCord using 3-ply rope. DuraCord rope is all-weather so it’s resistant to fading, mildew, rot, and mold.
Nags Head Hammocks uses almost twice the amount of rope as their competitors.
Have I left my rope hammock out all night during a wild and wet thunderstorm? You bet I did! Did I lose sleep thinking I ruined my hammock? Nope.
I woke up the next morning to discover it was wet, but within hours it was dry just as soon as the sun came out to dry it up. Ready for use!
And these high-end hammocks are handmade right here in the USA, in the beautiful Carolinas. Outdoor experts hand-weave these hammocks one at a time with only the finest of ingredients.
A pillow for perfection on a rope hammock
Hammocks are like cake. The stand is the frosting. The pillow is the sprinkles on top!
A detail which I can’t live without.
Pillows are made out of Sunbrella fabric. Folks, it doesn’t get any better than this. You already know that Sunbrella is the industry standard, the best money can buy.
The best known, most established outdoor fabric, Sunbrella® is not only resistant to rot, mold, mildew, and staining, but is superbly fade-resistant as well.
You can’t go wrong with a pillow 45 inches long and 7 inches wide. Long enough for you and your little friends (those neighborhood kids….I’m telling you!).
When kids slop sticky popsicles on your hammock pillow, I can promise you this: it’s easy to clean. A little mild dish soap or for more persistent stains, try diluted OxyClean. Works well and your pillow is as good as new.
And. Those. Colors. Last I counted, there are 13 eye-popping colors to choose from. My three favorites are red, tangerine, and yellow.
Picking a contrasting color is fun! So a blue hammock with a red or yellow pillow. Scrumptious!
One last detail you’ll marvel over: The white ties on each side of the pillow ensure that the pillow stays attached instead of falling into the lake! Yay.
A hammock stand for the long haul!
The invention of the hammock stand is right up there alongside the washing machine, the light bulb, and the dishwasher.
Especially if you don’t have two obliging trees to hang your hammock.
And none better than a hammock stand from Nags Head Hammocks. A metal hammock stand that will last for many years with its powder coating making it weather resistant.
It’s not a lifetime commitment either because assembly and disassembly are incredibly easy. It literally takes less than two minutes.
Just a matter of taking out the spring pins and moving it. Not complex at all!
This is ideal if you don’t like the first location you choose for your hammock stand. You can just move it! The easy-to-move pins also make storing the stand easier in the off-season.
This Trip Beam Hammock Stand is the strongest and safest in the industry. Constructed from 2-inch diameter 12 gauge heavy duty steel it has a 600-pound weight limit. Great for multiple people!
It’s also made using a 360-degree right connection welding process which is a flawless technique.
This hammock stand supports hammocks measuring between 12 to 14 feet in total length. So you’ll never have to worry about your hammock dragging on the ground.
Your choice of colors includes taupe, black, forest green, or bronze. Very neutral choices and will blend with whatever yard decor you already have. Made in the USA!
