Lorrie Dunn. Rocking Chair. October 27th , 2017.
Wooden rocking chairs are by far the most common type and can be found in many homes. It's a great idea to use rocking chair cushions if you have a wooden chair because that can help to keep your bum from getting sore, which is a real possibility if everything is hard wood. Cushions can make your seat much more comfortable however and you have nothing to worry about. This will make it so you can spend hours and hours rocking away just enjoying life. Just imagine, how much nicer could life get? Well not a whole lot really.
No one is sure whether the 'Wicker Rocker' as it became known, came before or after the wooden version but they became famous for their craftsmanship and creative designs and were very sought after. The same still stands today. Light, beautiful a real accent piece for any room, ultra comfortable and roomy, relaxing, and a joy for young and old. Wicker rocking chairs can be used on the porch, in the sun room, the family room, the bedroom, the baby's nursery and when it has done all that, a wash down and a can of spray paint and it's good to go for another quarter of a century.
Gliders and children's rockers are non-conventional designs for rocking chairs. Gliders lose the traditional curved wood rocker, and instead replaces it with smooth hinges that move back and forth. The same design is adapted for children's rockers that are usually found in cribs. While gliders are more expensive than the traditional rocking chair, this design is more favoured in environments and rooms where the characteristic noise of a rocking chair is not favoured. Gliders that are found in children's rooms and nurseries and even libraries are most favourable because they produce very little noise.
The two persons who benefit from the baby rocking chair are the mother as well as the child. There are also two kinds of rocking chairs - one is meant for the mother to rock baby on her lap and the other for the older child to play the part of the parent and rhythmically rock. As the world spins on its orbit, as the waves rock to and fro there is a deep urge in man to rock and roll for peace and calm. The rocking chair represents the most endearing phase of life - our childhood.
Wicker rocking chairs were introduced in the 1860's. They were cheaper than wooden rocking chairs, but they weren't nearly as durable. They did sell well though because the wicker could be twisted into a variety of designs. One of the most valuable wicker rocking chairs from this era features an American flag that was weaved into the design on the back of the chair. We have seen many varieties of rocking chairs through the years, and they are still well loved by people of all ages. You can purchase them at retail stores, furniture stores, and get them passed down to you from family members. Some manufacturers specialize in making custom, handmade rocking chairs. You can find out about them on the internet.
