The Sling-Back Chair is a new hammock hybrid chair. The chair is a cross between a lounge style chair and a hammock. The chair can be optioned for interior or exterior, with personalization options like style, materials and fabrics, armrests, foot stools, etc. The Sling-Back Chair keeps the essential and good qualities of a hammock, and merges them with a wood style lounge chair. The design is minimalist inspired, and is easily assembled with only 6 furniture hardware bolts and nuts. The design consists of a frame with a sling extending between two ends of the frame. This results in a storage area between the sling and the chair frame. The sling can be made adjustable to provide a firm or looser feel and the sling is attached with dowels allowing it to be easily attached, removed, or replaced.
