Wooden Para Hammock
Summer may be on the wane, but our fingers are crossed for plenty more hammock-worthy days on tap before winter arrives in earnest. The L.A. furniture studio 4th Period Workshop has its own novel (and quite handsome) take on the traditional fabric or canvas hammock, having fashioned their Para Hammock from, surprisingly enough, wood. Designer Chaffee Graham has hand crafted a strong and flexible surface area by weaving together 700 walnut wood tiles and strands of paracord, a combination that appears to have yielded an inviting, refined alternative to the makeshift bohemian look. Diehard modernists, take note.
