There are days, like today when my daughter is sick or when she just needs help calming down, when I wish I had still had a rocker. Here are 5 super lovely rocking chairs that may not be the best choice when you're breastfeeding a baby all night long for, well, years and years and dreaming of sleeping in an actual bed, but will fill the occasional rocker need once those baby-toddler days are past and look good in the process.
This is the one I have always wanted and still wold love to have now. Shown above with molded fiberglass seat in Ultramarine with black wire base & walnut rockers, with many other configurations available.
The Kartell Comback rocking chair has a perfect vintage feel, but was designed by Patricia Uroquiola in 2013. I love it's style, as well as the high back which is really a must for real rocking. A thermoplastic body, available in 6 colors, is complimented by oak-stained ash wood rockers.
VÄRMDÖ Rocking chair, IKEA. This indoor/outdoor chair can be equipped with cushions if desired and can go wherever you may need a bit of rocking and at a reasonable price too.
The classic Race Rocker was designed in 1948 by Ernest Race. The steel frame features a websprung seat, optional back cushion and hardwood armrests, which means it's also suited for indoor or outdoor use. It is available in 7 colors, including the lovely blue shown above and yellow, with a choice of natural or stained black Oak or Beech armrests.
Number 5 really is Vintage (though it may be a bit cheaty). There are oh so many amazing vintage rockers that I adore. The one above is a Fredrik Kayser Teak, wicker & brass rocker from 1958 found on 1stdibs. Other favorites include vintage Eames, Wenger, Nakashima and Frank Reenskaug.
