The Nags Head Hammocks Difference!
But Nags Head Hammocks is also one of the nicest companies we team up with. Because we're not working with just a company, but real, down to earth people.
Americans who worked hard to build an all American company from the ground up.
And Nags Head is a place you can actually visit and explore in the upper outer Banks of the Carolina's! Hailing off that rugged North Carolina coast, Nags Head Hammocks knows about inclement weather!
They have used this wealth of knowledge to create and handcraft the best outdoor furniture money can buy. This isn't outdoor furniture you purchase knowing it will be replaced in several years.
Your Nags Head purchase is an investment in your outdoor space. Buy furniture now and get a lifetime of rough-and-tumble, no worry use out of it.
Only if you buy from lackluster competitors who sell cheap knock-offs would you fret about furniture that will crack, break and fall apart after a year or two.
Nags Head Hammocks refuses to cut corners. They only use the best materials and old-fashioned techniques to handcraft your outdoor furniture.
Right down to color choice, Nags Head Hammocks puts such thought and care into every piece they create.
Besides...there's nothing worse than having friends and family over for a BBQ and not having adequate seating for all!
I totally take that back. There is something worse! Hosting a family gathering and watching your mother-in-law plop over in one of those cheap and flimsy plastic Adirondack chairs.
Okay...that just might depend on your mother-in-law. But I digress!
How Nags Head Hammocks "knows the ropes" in rope chairs!
The wide chair body. The soft, deep hand-woven rope seat. It was my very first experience sitting in a rope seat and it's not gonna be my last.
Peaceful tranquility~ here I come!
Dinner...laundry....dishes...it can all wait.
The base of the chair is constructed from durawood. The seat is plush DuraCord® for the perfect marriage of comfort and stability.
Together these materials work in harmony to create the most glamorous seaside chairs ever crafted. So heavy-duty, no storm is going to shake your style!
You'll be blown away....just not your chair...it's not going to budge an inch!
Besides, you look so stylish sitting in such a swanky and unique chair of ample proportions. It's huge, folks!
And with two appealingly wide armrests with a built-in cup holder on each side, you'll be sitting pretty sipping that lemonade using your Huggie.
The deal on durawood.....
It never ceases to amaze me that eco-friendly durawood is made out of compounded recycled consumer plastic. We're talking about milk jugs and soda pop bottles, folks!
Can you believe it?
Durawood contains no waste-wood fiber so it can't absorb water. It can't rot, splinter, crack or attract termites. Fade-resistant durawood never requires paint, stain or sealant.
Durawood = zero maintenance. (Do you see where I'm going with this?!)
And durawood is not nicknamed "hurricane proof" for nothing. Pounding rains. Salty sprays. Flailing winds. Insane snowstorms. Excessive and extreme weather conditions.
Bring it on ~ Durawood and Nags Head Hammocks to the rescue!
Late winter, we had this crazy storm. Fifty mile plus winds. Rain and snow. Everything ended up in my neighbors yard.
Plastic chairs. Kiddie toys. Pretty much everything we should have stored for the winter but didn't.
Everything but our Nags Head Durawood chairs. Those stayed put! Didn't move an inch.
Last...durawood has a smoothed surface to reduce the amount of crevices where grime and mildew can accumulate. Nags Head Hammocks rounds out all edges for a clean, detailed finish!
Even after being exposed to the elements outdoors all winter, our durawood chairs barely had any dirt on them.
I used one of those Mr. Clean Magic Erasers to clean and two minutes later, the chairs looked brand spanking new!
The rope difference with Nags Head Hammocks!
Translation: Extra fabric equals unparalleled support you can rely on when relaxing in chic style!
Nags Head Hammocks precision twists the DuraCord® 3-ply rope themselves out of the best quality synthetic threads to a strength that exceeds the exacting U.S. military standards.
And Nags Head hammocks was the first company to note and seize on the potential of DuraCord® rope, introducing it not only into all their hammocks but their rope swings and these chairs, too.
Hammocks, swings and chairs that are weaved from all-weather, soft-spun synthetic polyester or DuraCord® 3-ply ropes.
It's pure magic how these fabrics are resistant to rot, mold, mildew, fading, abrasion or staining. Hello kids and their icky and sticky fingers.
DuraCord® is also the most colorfast rope (and fabric) material available today.
If you've never experienced DuraCord® before, it's shockingly soft to the touch. Soft like cotton. Plush. Comfy. Soothing.
Soft but strong as it's geared up for prolonged weather exposure. Just wait till you brush up against it yourself. You'll be amazed!
Hardware that will hook you!
Instead.....drum roll please....they are the company others attempt to copy when it comes down to the nuts and bolts of the best hardware in the industry.
Twenty-five years ago Nags Head Hammocks created the industry standard for maximum quality hardware.
Their hooks and other hanging assembly parts are the strongest and heaviest in the industry being specially made out of galvanized steel, zinc-plated steel or 316 marine-grade stainless steel for heightened strength, rust protection, and weatherability.
You know what this means...right? Your hammock or chair won't plop due to cheap or faulty hardware. Who needs that? So embarrassing.
Even better? I LOVE how the hardware is painted to match the color of the furniture you choose and is strategically placed to conceal each bolt.
When I ripped open the boxes ~ it was the first thing I noticed! The rust-resistant hardware blended instead of sticking out like a sore thumb. Fantastic!
Trust Nags Head Hammocks to support you with the best!
Color choice is a chic challenge!
The colors for both the poly lumber Durawood and the DuraCord® are all fabulous. No doubt you will flip-flop on color choice several times before nailing down your final decision!
The poly lumber for the Durawood chairs come in white, cedar or weatherwood. All stunning choices and on trend.
I was waffling between the cedar or weatherwood but finally went with the cedar. Tough call!
And it doesn't get any easier selecting the DuraCord® rope as all seven choices are so astounding!
The soft-spun polyester DuraCord® rope comes in bright-white, oatmeal, tan, mocha, meadow, coastal blue and navy blue.
Seriously. It only took me two days. And a few random Facebook polls. That was a joke, folks!
After deciding that the cedar was the Durawood choice for me, I went with coastal blue for the DuraCord® rope with a yellow Sunbrella® pillow to show my happy style.
The pillows are easily adjustable. They just tie on! I'm shorter, so I like the pillows a little lower so I can rest my head comfortably. But for you taller folk, you may want to tie them higher.
Pillows in eye-popping bold color. Just what I like! Almost went with the cedar and mocha and that would have been stunning, too.
What would you choose?
As Tom duly noted, it took him half the time to assemble the second chair than the first.
There's really nothing complicated and you put them together just as you would expect using the directions.
I took 50% of the credit for assembly, but I guess it's fair to say all I did was tie the yellow Sunbrella® pillows on. However, I was watching on the sidelines!
Typically, Tom putters about when it comes to all those "projects" I have him lined up for. But I couldn't believe how eager he was to put together the second chair.
He even postponed eating his dinner because he wanted to finish the chair. Trust me, that's not his norm. Food first. Everything else second.
I *think* it was because we were fighting over the one chair.
And obviously, it's a one time deal. Once you take the 20 minutes to assemble, you're done for life.
Final nagging thoughts.....
But seriously, the bit where a worker is actually weaving a hammock by hand. Fascinating. You'll want to watch the pulse of this "work" all day.
With one hand, this expert hammock weaver uses a big wooden needle wound with rope, while the other runs along the last row woven, pulling and tightening, pulling and tightening.
A U.S. company in North Carolina that employs over 150 people in their factory alone! And some of them have been with the company over 30 years~ a big deal!
Their storefronts are just as beautiful as their website. So pretty! Truly, Nags Head Hammocks weaves together art and incredible design for outdoor furniture that will last the ages.
Nags Head Hammocks launched in a cottage in 1974 as a little beach store and has expanded to three shops up the coast of the Outer Banks, North Carolina.
So if you live in the area or are ever doing a drive-by, you can visit them in Kill Devil Hills, Corolla or Duck (I'm not making these names up!)
Tom and I are thinking about heading that way next Easter, and if we do, plan on "swinging" by to say hi to the wonderful people we worked with at Nags Head Hammocks next April!
Customer service. That's where Nags Head Hammocks stand out to me the most. I have zero doubts they will take good care of you!
When you couple superb customer service with incredible product~ we all win!
Top-of-the line hammocks, swings, chairs and outdoor furniture from Nags Head Hammocks instantly takes you to a windswept OBX beach without ever boarding a plane.
Right in the seclusion of your private backyard paradise!
