Royal Botania Hammocks Offer Comfort without Compromise

It is almost summer, and there is nothing better about summer than lying around in a hammock with a cold drink. But you spent a lot of time designing your outdoor space to cater to a specific crowd, and cluttering up your rooftop amenity space with rope hammocks would look a bit tacky. Just because your residents are in the mood for a margarita doesn’t mean they want to feel like they are in Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville™.
Belgium-based outdoor furniture company Royal Botania offers two classy solutions to the hammock conundrum. The first is the modern and minimal EZ Hammock. Built from stainless steel and French-made batyline, this hammock is like a giant rocking bed that is sure to be a coveted space by sun-worshiping residents. Because the stands and the rocker are one in the same, this hammock is extremely compact and will still leave plenty of open space on your poolside patio or roof deck.
If space is not an issue, you can offer some comfort out of the sun with the Surf Hammock, which has an egg-shaped frame with a canopy on top. These not only provide an elegant way to waste an afternoon, but also look great. Put a few of these on your roof and the neighbors in the high-rise across the street are going to be looking for an excuse to visit.
