From time to time, we like to integrate a relaxation-inducing post on Freshome, to help you remember to unwind. Designed by Chaffee Graham of 4th Period Woodshop, the Para Hammock is a highly welcoming, tension-relieving furniture piece. The unconventional swing is made using over 700 pieces of Walnut that are all connected in an integrated and flexible grid via a Para cord. Flexing walnut tiles provide ultimate comfort and relaxation. Each piece is handcrafted one by one, providing value and diversity.

The hammock is especially treated and finished to be outdoors and resist all types of weather. Place it between two powerful trees and enjoy a state of relief. Dreaming of a mesmerizing escape? Let this swinging hammock slowly take you away in one gentle, lazy afternoon. Aside from being the perfect place to take a nap or read a book, the Para Hammock is also a beautiful addition to any home or backyard. How would you comment on the overall design of this outdoor hammock? [Photos and information provided via e-mail by 4th Period Woodshop]
