If there is enough room for a bed then there is room for a hammock. You just need to think outside the boxspring. Like the frame link I gave in your last question, think about maybe useing your other furniture as part of the frame. Maybe install a hook on the side of a dresser braced against a desk with a pipe. Or even useing a pipe type setup to create a frame that doesn't take up as much room. Look here for insperation. https://www.instructables.com/id/Pipe-Loft-Bed/ http://www.instructables.com/id/Pipe-Loft-Bed-Galvanized-Steel/ http://www.instructables.com/id/Hybrid-Pipe-Bed/

Just a few thoughts.

Standard college-dorm solution: Build a loft which presses against, rather than being anchored into, the walls. Hang the hammock under the loft. Put at least some of the furniture on top of the loft.

Well, if you can't put any holes in the wall, then I guess you're going to have to build a custom hammock stand, that is freestanding but occupies less space than a commercial stand.

Lots of garden hammocks use a frame
