The Coolest Way To Hang Out

I was going through Stumble Upon today and found this nice new invention called the Nestrest.  It's basically the coolest thing that you'll ever see.  It's just a gigantic wicker basket that is strong enough to hold your weight and hangs from any tree that you want it to.  After finding out that it probably costs close to $5,000 I sadly won't be getting one......yet.  But I am doing some research.  There are some viable alternatives out there. Luckily.  Because let's be honest, once you see something that is as amazing as a hanging room above a river, you've gotta have it.

So after looking through some hammock sites and furniture sites I've come to a few conclusions.  First off, I'm going to need to save $5,000.  Secondly, no one else makes anything nearly as cool as the Nestrest.  And lastly, if you would rather drop $999 on something similar to the Nest, there is a hanging wicker chair that can make that happen for you.  It's made by a company called Fiji and it's basically a wicker egg that is made to hang off of the porch of some modern Japanese retreat style home.  However I'm sure you could just as easily tie it up to a tree and be  dangling above a river if that's what floats your boat, or chair.

It may be possible that no one actually need any kind of hanging furniture in their lives.  But that's too difficult for me to come to terms with right now.  So it looks like I'll be saving up a good bit until I graduate college.  But until then I guess I'll be trying to figure out how that guy got into his nest without getting wet.  That's probably the real challenge anyways.


  1. I'm thinking...he had the opening twisted the other direction...ran and jumped off the edge of the bank there, and through the opening of the nestrest like a lion through a ring of fire at a circus!!! This is super cool! I really want one too! Split it 50/50? Joint custody? haha

  2. Oh I'm definitely in on that! I've gotta go ahead and start saving now!! Plus I don't know if I'm lion-like enough to pull that off, so we'll need a new entrance strategy! ha
