Incredibly relaxing Nook chair by Henry Sgourakis

This is the most relaxing piece I’ve seen for a long time. It’s so incredibly cozy and inviting, it makes you want to try it right now. Just imagine how cool it would be have it in your own home. The great thing about this structure is that it’s also very versatile. It can be used inside, if you have the space necessary, but I think it’s more appropriate for the outdoors.

It resembles a hammock but the structure is completely different. Since springtime is already here, this is the perfect accessory as it allows you to completely relax as the net of this structure expands and supports your lazy body. This hammock-inspired piece is actually formed of two parts: the chair and the ottoman or footrest. The relaxation is extreme.

This beautiful and very unusual creation was handcrafted using ropes. The result is aesthetically pleasing and also very cozy and comfortable. It’s a very ingenious idea that this designer has come up with. Everybody likes hammock but not everyone has the space and conditions that allow him to have one. So this is like having a portable hammock that you can place wherever you want. I’m not sure how this piece could be disassembled, if it’s even possible. It seems a little painful to have to carry it like this.Was designed by Henry Sgourakis.
