Hi,
Does anyone know where to buy a hammock like this one in Singapore?

Basically what I need is a freestanding hammock chair.

Thanks for any help.

I couldn't help myself - this just sounded like one of my favourite Simpsons episodes:

Homer: Sir, I need to know where I can get some business hammocks.
Hank Scorpio: Hammocks? My goodness, what an idea. Why didn't I think of that? Hammocks! Homer, there's four places. There's the Hammock Hut, that's on third. There's Hammocks-R-Us, that's on third too. You got Put-Your-Butt-There? That's on third. Swing Low, Sweet Chariot... Matter of fact, they're all in the same complex; it's the hammock complex on third.
Homer: Oh, the hammock district.


:lol:

plaza singapura ,with lots of fabric?
you mean spotlight?if thats the one then probably on the 4th or 5th level.
My mum tried to find good hammocks here but was unsucecssful or they were not really good.
so she got her friends to buy them overseas for her.

so your best bet would be asking a friend to buy them from another asian country that uses hammock more frequently for you

OR, if you are very handy, do like I did many years ago while working offshore on a diving vessel......

Make one yourself. There are lots of books available on the art of macrame which is all you need to construct a hammock. Lots of Twine, rope, cordage available here as this is a port city so you can find most any style cordage you might want.

You might want to try beach road, there are a lot of camping stuff over there. You might be able to find what you want there.

hammocks in Singapore

Postby sakyant » Wed, 28 Apr 2010 2:28 pm

you can order a great sitting hammock online from Jumbo Hammock at the Lanta Hammock House in Thailand. They have amazing top quality hand woven hammocksmade by the Mlabri Hilltribe of North Thailand.
In addition to being great hammocks, they also help the Mlabri Tribe with a fair earnings program and share profits with them.
here is the link to their website

I think there is something similar to that hammock chair at orchardcentral. However it doesn't seem like the type that you could use outdoors. Mainly for the living room. I think it was level 4 or 5 in one of those furniture shops. The hammocks that you find at beach road cost about $6 for one. Hoever those are a little bit more troublesome to use.

Hi all,

I too am interested to get a hammock. Jumbo Hammock looks so awesome. But it seems like a great chore to purchase everything online, so Im not going to bother. Im planning to get mine in the Army market or Johore Bahru. Some say Giant Hypermart has it. Will check it out and update when ive bought mine. Cheers

Ikea has one. But you need to install yourself from wall/ceiling.

If you are going to use it at home, I recommend those hammocks with stands that rest on the floor. No installation required. Easy to assemble. My MIL bought one from a market in Bedok but I think the shop has relocated.

You can try Beach road.
