We've always had a thing for hammocks -- even before Anthropologie made it a hashtag and someone else created a national holiday.

(Not to mention, they make for a far-comfier alternative to a desk.)

Today is about kicking back and admiring the artistry of one of the most simplistic and ingenious pieces of home decor ever made. Though we're partial to the roomier, double-wide versions, here are 8 hammocks to consider adding to your life.
