There isn’t much better than lazing about the cottage or in your backyard on a hot summer afternoon. A quick survey around the office put together our top five summer napping, I mean relaxing pieces of furniture!
I absolutely love the flexibility of hammocks, you can lie, sit, flip, stretch, swing and wrap yourself up like a cocoon. You can lounge in them and read a book or take a nap wrapped up and protected from the sun or you can stretch out work on your tan. Hammocks are wonderfully versatile!

The banana chair is wonderfully comfortable and perfect for lounging about the pool, lake or garden. In place of a lack of trees the adjustable umbrella makes it easy to keep the sun out of your eyes .
Adirondack Chair (Muskoka Chair)
These chairs can have 20+ year warranties and are built to last, They are also comfortable and look good all at the same time. As an added bonus the arm rests are usually wide enough to rest a drink or a plate on without fear of it falling.
I doubt there is anything more relaxing than a swing. Swing chairs came in a variety forms, it’s all a matter of taste, but I know I sure love them!
To be fair I need to admit I carry a tiny fear of rocking chairs, I love them but a part of me fears I’ll rock back too far! There is something about rocking back and forth on the patio or deck and watching the clouds drift by that says "summer" to me.
