Rocking Chairs

Not many furniture pieces can create as much of a sense of total relaxation and stress release as rocking chairs do. Whether it be through the rhythmic rocking or the careful focus on the repetitive motion, the silhouette of a rocking chair alone can add an overall sense of calm to a room.

Ask yourself these questions before you choose a rocking chair for your home:

Where should I place the rocking chair?


While originally designed to be used outdoors, rocking chairs are now used throughout all rooms of the house. If you know where specifically you will be using this chair, it will help you dictate which materials, sizes, and even potential styles that will be suitable. If you plan to place it on the porch, opt for solid wood over an upholstered rocking chair to ensure longevity and durability. Comfortable upholstery is a great option for a master suite, nursery or living room. Before making a purchase, consider how much space you have available in your chosen room, as rocking chairs can be major space consumers.

Which rocking chair is best?


Is this chair going to be a decorative accent piece or more of an everyday rocker? Consider the function that it will serve in your home and the durability and comfort that will be required. With it’s stunning silhouette, a rocking chair can replace a sculpture or statue as a corner accent piece. Alternatively, the rocking chair may be the workhorse of your living room furniture set and so it would be wise to purchase one designed to handle that stress and wear of that task.

Which rocking chair style should I opt for?


A family rocking chair is a piece that can easily become a treasured family heirloom to be passed through generations. Regardless of your design style preference, whether it be mid century modern or classic Victorian, there is a rocking chair designed tailored to your tastes. As this will be an investment, as well as statement, piece in your home, take time to consider what it is that you are looking for in a rocking chair. In this instance, one size does not fit all, and it would be to your advantage to make some decisions prior to purchase.

Are rocking chairs good for your back?


Some rocking chairs have been designed specifically to target back and neck pain and can be quite an asset. While the design of this style chair is more likely to be sacrificed in order to accommodate and remedy the ailments, the comfort and relief that they may bring can be worthwhile.
