Nothing beats relaxing in a wicker rocking chair in a cold rainy night or balmy summer day. Depending on the material used, wicker rocking chairs can be used indoors or out. You can relax under the sunshine or be snug in the warmth in your fireplace. Rocking chairs are not only used in nursing homes to while away the time of elderly people. These are also very common in homes. For individuals who live stressful lives, a wicker chair that rocks is a haven. It is a place to relax after a day's work. It's a place where you can just sit down and doze off in the rocking motion of the chair.
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.
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.
