I first saw one of these hanging beds on a porch in Charleston, SC when we were there 2 years ago and I just loved the idea! In Hawaii most homes have a large covered porch called a lanai. So when we get there, I want Dave to build one of these on the lanai. Some are kind of like a day bed and some are just a flat mattress on a wooden platform. I like both but I think the day bed style is better for reading and for visiting with people. Some of these pictures are actually in a regular bedroom, not just a lanai, but I don't think I'd like one for my regular bed - I wouldn't like my bed to swing everytime I move. But they sure do look relaxing and fun!
So make your plans now to come visit us and we can sit out on the lanai and sip Mai-Tai's on the hanging bed!
