by Marisa Marcantonio

Pick up a good summer read, don a pair of sunnies and a big straw hat, and you are ready to indulge in one of summers favorite pastimes: The Great Art of Hammock Lounging. Colorful or classic, there is a hammock with your name on it, just hang it from two trees in the shade and suddenly, life isn't just good, its great.

Hmm, I wonder how this fringe-edged macrame lounger from Terrain works at the beach. No matter, its Brazilian vibe is sure to be transporting wherever you happen to be.
