Inspired by this picture I now have something similar for our garden. I'm not sure where you are (I m in UK) but I found it at www.waitrosegarden.com. Not the same but the same feel. good luck in your quest. Definitely paid off for me. I smile every time I look at it.

Between Naps on the Porch added this to 12 Ways to Spoil Mom This Mother's Day
Struggling with choosing just the right gift for Mom this year? Looking for something that isn't the same old, same old? Consider a beautiful hammock where she can unwind on those summer evenings with a good book.

Vanessa Brunner added this to How to Get the Hang of a Hammock
Wooden posts are a good substitute if you don't have two trees close enough to each other — or any trees at all! Make sure that your posts are at least 4"x4", or larger. Your posts will need to be placed at least two feet in the ground, and surrounded by at least eight inches of concrete in order to ensure a stable support system. If you live in a climate that frosts in the winter, make sure the bottom of the hole for your posts is wider than the top. This will prevent frost heaving.
Amy Renea added this to Have a Rockin' Summer With a Hammock
Objection: A hammock doesn't work with my pretty decor.Reality: Want a place to relax, but don't want to give up your intricate laces and frilly decor? No worries — this beautifully designed hammock has the best of both worlds for you. Give a nod to the floral designs on the pillow prints by attaching the hammock to a vine-covered post. Clematis is a great choice, with a wide range of pinks, purples and whites to choose from and a graceful twining habit. Other vines might take over your hammock, but clematis will grow peacefully and stay in its place.

9. String a white hammock. Got a lot of color in your flower borders? White goes with everything, and a traditional rope hammock is a practical way to enjoy the scenery. It's also easy to take down and store at the end of the season.

Romantic. Crochet suitable for an antique canopy bed, rose fabric plucked from an English cottage and a spot in a flower garden make this hammock a romantic heaven.

SaveEmail If you want your hammock to live underneath your shaded porch or balcony, you can often attach it to two of the walls or pillars. Most professionals recommend that you hang the sides of your hammock at least 12 feet apart —or its anchor points should be two feet longer than the overall length of your hammock. If you don't have enough space at first, try going at a diagonal!
