Ashlee Meyers. Rocking Chair. October 17th , 2017.
The joys of a rocking chair are many, quiet joys though they are. As technology continues its constant onward march, some people still remember the peace and simplicity that comes with making a rocker a part of every day life. Some might think rockers are only for old people, but in truth, anyone who sits can gain some benefit from using this type of chair. That's because rockers are all about motion- not the crazy motion of long distance travel or freaky dancing, but something much more subtle, a gentle back and forth that may seem unremarkable to the naked eye. In truth, however, these motions can have a rather profound physical and psychological impact on us as humans. Sitting for long periods in one spot is likely to make our bodies stiff and our minds a little crazy, but sitting in a rocker keeps us engaged and our bodies are constantly moving, constantly adjusting. The fact that these movements and adjustments are slow does not really matter, because we repeat the movement so much. But sit in a rocker for an hour and sit in a normal chair for an hour- I bet you will come off the rocker feeling refreshed and rested, while your body might revolt before the hour is up if you're sitting in the regular chair.
Today's rocking chairs are distinguished by their diverse materials and cutting edge, sometimes outrageous, designs. One of the modern era's most unique was created by Ron Arad in 1990. The single volume rocking arm chair is made of steel that also tilts upward when it is not used. Meanwhile, Peter Opsvik of Norway created the \"gravity balance\" in 1999. This ergonomic rocking chair allows the sitter to relax or stretch through its four positions. Another unique one was created in 1999 by Illka Terho and Teppo Asikaine of Sweden. Known as the \"chip lounger,\" this rocking chair is shaped like a surfboard. In 2001, MAC Sports, USA released the \"malibu\" rocking chair, which can be folded up completely into its own carrying case.
The rocking chair was first invented in the 18th century and it has provided millions of people a higher level of relaxation since then. Rocking chairs are pieces of furniture that defy the usual function of a chair. These chairs have legs that are poised over curved pieces of wood which makes it possible for the chair to sway forwards and backwards, setting the one sitting on it in a gentle rocking motion. Rocking chairs provide comfort that is beyond what is usually offered by traditional chairs or seats. The rocking of a rocking chair can provide relaxation and a whole new dimension of comfort for you and your family.
So you thought all along you were the only one entitled to get frazzled day in and out? Now that you know, perhaps you'll get your own mommy-sized rocking chair too. Try trying a rocking chair and feel the calm spreading all over you. That's the same thing that would happen to your little girl if she goes on board her kids rocking chair.
Outdoor rockers are usually placed in the open spaces in the house. Verandas, patios, gazebos and even gardens are good places to place an outdoor rocking chair. These chairs are usually made out of plastic and aluminium so as to make them weather-proof and very durable. Some outdoor rocking chairs are made out of hardwood, although this is discouraged because weather will deal great damage on your wooden furniture. Outdoor rocking chairs provide a whole new dimension of outdoor relaxation. Now, resting in the sunshine is never more comfortable.
