History of the Hammock Chair
The hammock chair was first introduced by Christopher Columbus in Europe. They were not a new concept, and has been used by ancient people as well. The trend of these styles of chair was introduced by the Native Americans to the North American continent. People used the fish net to make the hammock chair so that they can rest on it when they go out or during the fishing trips. Previously, a hammock was woven from the bark of a tree and as the time passed, this material was replaced by sisal fibers because this material was more widely available. One of the major reasons for the popularity of the hammock chair in South America and Central America was the ability to provide the protection from one of the biggest problems -- mosquitos. These creatures were rampant spreaders of disease and caused painful and irritant stings and bites. By placing the hammock chair above the ground, it protected people from the ants, snakes, and other harmful animals while resting.
Usually, the ancient people used to travel from one place to another, and had to stay in the jungle or forest to hunt for food. In that situation, they used the hammock chair so they can safely sleep or stay in that particular place for an extended period of time. You could say that with the help of this product, people could survive in much more inhospitable environments.
Types of Hammock Chairs
There are many different type of hammock chairs available in the marketplace today. People use a certain type of hammock at different places so that they can take the advantage of whatever that particular environment provides.
Below are the different types of hammock chairs:
Naval hammocks: Naval hammocks are used on the ship while travelling so that sailors can sleep easily. It doesn’t need any large place to install. In the ship, sailors placed the hammock on the gun decks of warship because of the limited space. The hammock moved with the motion of the ship, but if it is placed in the proper place then you can stay reasonably still. In earlier times, people who traveled by ship used the same method so that they can sleep properly on long voyages. Moreover, hammocks provide more comfortable sleep than a berth or the bunk while at sea. With the help of the hammock, a person who is asleep gets a much more comfortable sleep.
Additionally, the sleeper may get injured or badly hurt or even killed as they fell off with their berth or rolled on the decks on the heavy seas. The traditional naval hammock wrap around by the sleeper like cocoon reduced the number of accidents caused by falling out of a bunk or bed.
