2. Anyoo Tassel Hammock

Best Value

​​Made of breathable colorfast cotton, this chic tasseled hammock is skin-friendly, quick-drying, and so lightweight, that it can fold into a drawstring pouch. It also comes with two carabiners and two nylon tree straps that make for an easy setup—just hang it between two trees or attach it to a stand, and you’re good to go. What’s more, it’s made from high-quality cotton that’s machine washable, and it can hold up outdoors without losing its color.

3. Tiipii Aluminum And Canvas Daybed

Most Splurge-Worthy

Part hammock, part daybed (part nirvana), the TiiPii is the *ultimate* way to kick back, chill out, and watch the world go by. Its design features a portable swinging daybed that can be free-hung or paired with a chic aluminum stand, and it’s big enough to seat 3-4 adults comfortably. Our favorite part? It takes just a few minutes to set up, and it packs down to a lightweight (included) travel bag that makes it easily transportable. So, whether you’re looking to cozy up for an outdoor movie night or go backyard glamping with the kids—the TiiPii Bed is your summer’s secret weapon. Oh, and in case you were wondering, its weather- and UV- resistant fabric is also machine washable.

5. Lydney Hanging Chaise Lounger With Stand

Best for Backyards

The brand describes this as a “hanging chaise lounger,” mostly because of its breezy cotton canvas fabric and adjustable design. Not only do we love how this guy looks poolside, but its generous 158-inch width can hold up to 440 pounds at a time. Oh, and did we mention that included stand also comes with an overhead umbrella that will keep you comfortably shaded as you nap?

6. Business & Pleasure Co. Hammock

Best Aesthetic

Functional yet fashionable, this cotton canvas and fringed trimmed hammock is Instagram’s best friend. It’s made of lightweight, breathable cotton that’s coated in a water-resistant finish and the 86.5-inch length allows plenty of room for two. But of course, the real show-stopper is its striped fringe design, (available in navy, grey and yellow) which will make you swear you’re on a Mediterranean island — even if you are just chillin’ in your backyard.
