    The ENO doublenest style of parachute hammock come in a large variety of colour combinations. Have your wife take a look at them and pick one that suits her decor requirements. Do note it may not be an ENO brand.

    Good Luck

    Good company to do business with too. I have made more than one purchase from them and always been happy or they fixed it.

    Mayans can be so pretty and you can get them in some super big sizes. If she is wanting a certain color than picking out a Crinkly Taffeta tablecloth from tableclothsfactory.com would be the way to go and saves big time on money.

    Thanks!

    Thanks for the input everyone. I've got a few Mayan hammocks I've proposed to the wife. Now I gotta think about stand vs. mounting anchors in the brick. But, we're making progress!

    Decision is made

    Well, I now have a hammock in transit that will be set up on my front porch! Here's the model we picked. I'll post again with a photo once I've got it set up, which should be interesting given I've got a distance of about 23' to span.

    We're going with the "jungle stripe" color in nylon.

    Thanks again for all the suggestions!

    Looks like it's a little late, but you could maybe fit one of these in the short way. Comfortable for an afternoon nap but will give some shoulder squeeze overnight. Double layer upholstery fabric, so not backpackable but practically bullet proof.
