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.
What do you think of when you think of a rocking chair? Grandpa rocking on the porch enjoying his after dinner pipe of tobacco? Maybe you get a picture of Grandma sitting by the fire knitting furiously and then falling asleep with the cat on her lap? What about a mother nursing her new born baby until the baby eventually falls to sleep (or the mother does). There is no other piece of furniture which quite evokes our memories to the same extent as the humble rocking chair, many illustrators even picture Santa Claus is a rocking chair, having forty winks before setting off back up the chimney. This chair has been an inherent part of our history and, as with so many other things has evolved a long way from its crude beginnings.
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.
A chair is man's invention to make sitting more comfortable. One of the most popular types of chairs is the contemporary rocking chair. The rocking chair is named after its unique feature. Unlike other types of chairs, the rocking chair is capable of an automatic rocking motion. It allows the occupier to move towards and backwards without the fear of tipping over. A rocking chair is famous with the elderly. Most of the senior members of the society develop a certain fixation with the rocking chair because it provides them with comfort and relaxation.
Although many people own a rocking chair, not everyone owns a rocking chair to sway. Many times people will have a rocking chair in the room to give it a homier feel. It can also be used as part of the décor because many people use the rocking chair in the designs to get the country look. Rather it's for show or to rock, you can bet a throw will be on the chair. Rocking chair's are very beautiful and usually handcrafted wood. To give it a more subtle look sometimes a throw will be laid on the back of the rocking chair.
