This is my story...
I've struggled with the right bed and have slept on everything and nothing satisfies me like a hammock.
So I decided to make the leap and got rid of my bed, went online and ordered what I anticipate to be an excellent Mayan hammock... I thought the rest would fall into place easy-peasy. That was 2 months ago!
I checked with my landlord and there is no hanging from the walls. Fair enough! I need to get a hammock stand.
My dilemma... I'd like the stand to look nice - like a quality piece of indoor furniture that will also work for a Mayan Hammock. (Keep in mind - I'm a bachelor and must be prepared to impress the future Mrs. Stubbins!)
There are a 2 models I've looked at that I dig and I list the problems I've encountered in obtaining them:
INFINITY Universal Hammock Stand...
(Really great aesthetics but the company website is gone - no contact info)
Viking Hammock Stand from Byers of Maine...
(This one looks great! But everywhere it says that its out of stock)
Then, there's the Universal Hammock Stand - the ONLY one I can find in abundance and the only one I DON'T want in my bedroom: http://www.hammockuniverse.com/us/un...-hammocks.html (I hear you lose the "swing" with this universal stand - plus, its got the "lawn furniture" look - kinda cheesy in the bedroom)
I will make a stand myself if I must but I don't want to nor do I have time (I've been hitting brick walls just trying to obtain the right lumber I want for this project). Now, after 2 months of research, hitting and missing and getting nowhere, anything is better than sleeping on the floor which is where I am now. Ugh! I'm getting mad at myself for selling my bed!
Anyone have any ideas or any leads to a good quality, aesthetically pleasing, indoor Mayan hammock stand (I prefer it made out of wood or bamboo)?
