Eva Gonzalez. Rocking Chair. October 12th , 2017.
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.
Personal style is important when choosing the perfect wood outdoor rocking chair. Monetary resources will be a factor in the choice of chair whether it is a simple rocking chair or a glider any outdoor rocking chair will brighten up your style. If you prefer to have two rocking chairs with a table between them for the after work relaxation the resources are available. Romance of the double rocking chairs adds to the intimate style you already possess with the informal wood patio furniture.
The older models of rocking chairs featured very high backs and thin slats. They were hand carved from quality wood. Antique rocking chairs are worth a great deal of money. The Gungstol and the Windsor were both introduced in the 1700's, today they are worth thousands of dollars depending on the shape they are in as well as the type of materials used. The early 1800's saw the introduction of rocking chairs that didn't have arms. They were well received by people who found them much easier to get in and out of. It was also easier to share the rocking chair with someone else. However, many people loved the first design, so the arm rocking chairs continued to be manufactured as well. Around the 1840's, rocking chairs began being made with machines rather than by hand. The Salem rocking chair was introduced at this time, featuring a lower back.
Depth of the rocking chair is also personal comfort. If your comfort lies in leaning back in the chair to take a nap or gazing at the sky then the Rustic Low Back Rocking Chair may fit you better than the straighter porch rocker. The porch rocker adds a support to your back that you may find more comfortable to eating during a party than the lower back rocking chair. Remember no matter what your personal style is and the limit of your finances the wood outdoor rocking chairs adds style and comfort to your patio or porch through the type of wood, the depth of the chair, and the accompanying furniture. The rocking chairs add to the wood patio furniture as a complement for a table or your basic patio chair.
No one really knows how much work goes into making a rocking chair. It may just seem like a regular chair placed on curved wood, but it's more than that. The back of the chair must be slighted just right or the person will tip. The legs of the \"chair\" are much shorter and have to be just the right angle. Finally, the slop in the runners and the placement of the legs has to be just right or the chair won't be stable.
