Even in this modern era, wicker rocking chair is not only found in nursing homes, or in the ancestral home of your grandparents. Now, you can find wicker chairs in virtually any household. These are perfect especially for those who live a stressful life, as well as for those who want a sanctuary or a place to relax at the end of the day. Basically, it is a safe haven that you can turn to whenever life gets too tough on you. Indeed, it is your trusty wicker chair that you can count on to get you back on track.
No matter what kind or style of rocking chair you choose, make sure it is comfortable. Chairs are made in many sizes and with varying degrees of slant in the seat. Make sure that the chair is comfortable for you to sit in and that it is easy to rock. The last thing you want is to get your new rocking chair home to find that it is uncomfortable and anything but relaxing because you get a work out rocking it.
A rocking chair will also give her new sensations in motion. This will be a learning experience, like the first time she took the swing on your lap. With a kids rocking chair, it is safer and she can sit herself on it without much assist from you. She can use the same chair while leafing through her board book, draw pictures or play \"grandma.\" But the best thing of all is feeling being gently rocked as you have rocked her to sleep hundreds of times.
There are traditionally shaped children's rocking chairs in every theme you could think of. From pirate themes to fire trucks, princess themes (with cushions and lacy skirting) to tea parties, there's nothing your child can dream up that you can't find. A rocking chair with your child's favorite theme will increase the joy that he or she will get out this comfortable classic. It could be a favorite story time seat, or a place for watching birds and animals through the window. In a child size rocking chair, children can enjoy time with their families.
The origin of the rocking chair is unknown but the first ones we do know of originated in England in the early 1700's and were made near Windsor Castle in Berkshire (which lies about a 20 minute drive away from Heathrow Airport) hence the name 'Windsor Rocker'. In all probability it came about through watching the therapeutic effect of gently rocking a baby in it's cradle, so why not do the same for adults? England was not the only country to have the rocker at that time, Sweden had another form around 1740 called the 'Gungstol', which just means rocking chair. These originally had 6 legs and were traditionally painted black with gold outlines. A four legged version became popular in the 1800's
