Hanging Out in an Indoor Swing

Looking to mix things up in your house? Consider doing away with traditional seating when it’s time for your next purchase. Suspending an indoor swing, hammock, or even bed from your ceiling adds extra seats and an element of relaxation and fun to any room. (Bonus: your hammock stays a lot cleaner inside than it does outside!)

Indoor swings were first made popular by the special-needs population; it provides sensory stimulation that many individuals crave and is usable at any time of the day or night, rain or shine. Recognizing the benefits indoor swinging provides – deep relaxation, semi-weightlessness, balance and coordination, even exercise (you’ll burn more calories than when sitting still) – furniture designers and manufacturers cottoned on to the idea and produced stylish swings and hammocks designed for indoor use.
