100 Dangling Designs

From Flesh-Hooking Rituals to Floating Sleep Stations

— June 15, 2012 — Naughty
All of these dangling designs hang above the ground. Levitating structures have been incorporated into many designs from beds, wall chairs, piggy banks and plant containers to fashionable abodes for owls.

These hovering structures are perfect for people who want an adrenaline rush from the height, or who like ornaments that hang from their home. The most interesting innovations include the fashion ads, which feature flying felines, blood-rushed portraits and people suspended from hooks attached to their skin.

People hang objects to conserve space, create a unique design or love swinging back-and-forth on a hammock in the trees. I hope you're not afraid of heights because all of these designs do the dangle from various lengths.
