Meet a Cacoon; the coolest hanging haven for grown-ups and what a fantastic place for growing up in for kids.
It’s your swing chair; your hammock; your hanging garden seat; it’s whatever you want it to be, inside or out. It’s for after that hard day at work, or something fun for the weekend.
Picture yourself, chilling out and relaxing, wherever and whenever you want. A single Cacoon packs down to a handy size of less than 20cm x 70cm (80cm for a double), and being a real doddle to hang means that you truly can take it anywhere, anytime.
And the kids? You know they’ll absolutely love it, whatever their age!

meet the makers
Husband and wife team Nick and Sarah make sails for ocean-going yachts. They’re at the top of their game and work has taken them to some exotic locations.
It was on a trip to Mexico that the idea for the Cacoon was born.
Nick, who started out as a fine furniture maker, is no stranger to creating unique tensile structures with fabric having worked on projects like The Eden Project and the Alpine House at Kew Gardens, and had been commissioned to create a post-treatment relaxation chair or hammock by the luxury Spa Hotel in Cornwall 'The Scarlet'.
Whilst out walking they came upon a colony of weaver birds busy building their tiny woven hanging nests – their safe bolt-hole in the jungle. This was the moment inspiration struck. That Eureka moment! And, by combining their furniture making expertise with complex sail cloth technology, 'Cacoon' was born.
So now, with your own Cacoon, just like the weaver bird, you too can be hidden away and sheltered, comfortable and relaxed, cocooned alone, or together, in your own private world.
Cacoon is so many things to so many people, but at its heart it is, quite simply, a back to the nest adventure.
