Taking the time to escape from the pressures of work and the stresses associated with modern living is of the utmost importance to our health. A perfect way of relaxing is lounging in a hammock on a hot summer's day. However, good company is just as important to our well-being. Trinity Hammocks allows people to combine the two.

Founded by Gilbert Tourville, Trinity Hammocks produces triple hammocks designed to make relaxing a social experience. The hammocks and their supporting structures are suitable for use in any outdoor environment. There are currently two different designs to choose from, Infinity and Eternity.

The designs themselves are very different, with Infinity comprising three rings leaning in on one another, while Eternity features a more traditional square structure that resembles a gazebo. The latter provides more cover thanks to a pitched roof, which could be useful when used somewhere without shade. The hammocks themselves are available in hand-woven acrylic yarn or quilted fabric.

Both models feature a tubular stainless steel structure to support the triumvirate of hammocks, and include a 21-in (53-cm) teak table suspended in the middle. Both also have a base diameter of 10 ft (3 m) and weigh in at 140 lb (64 kg).

Each triple hammock costs CAD$4,950 (US$4,720), so they're far from cheap. Still, for those who can afford them, the hammocks offer a pleasant way to while away the summer days with friends. Those looking for a more affordable alternative might want to consider the Cacoon, which requires a tree and isn't quite as social.
