Jodie Gilmore. Rocking Chair. March 29th , 2018.
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
Thinking of the rocking chair, the first thing that conjures up in our mind is, either the image of an elderly person sitting on it and gently swinging or a pregnant mommy knitting woolens for her expecting baby. But this is not done because it is stereotypical, in fact, rocking gently on the rocking chair can give you boundless health benefits. If you have a sedentary lifestyle, then you do not have to worry much, instead try to ensure that you sit on a this chair more often. This is because swaying on the rocking chair can tone your leg muscles and releases endorphin, that decreases stress and increases mental stability.
The appeal of rocking chairs is not exclusive for adults, since they are also popular toys for children. The wooden rocking horse or chair is a classic children's toy, and it became even more popular with the introduction of various themes, such as motorbikes, firetrucks, and pirate ships. When it comes to comfort, relaxation, and stress relief, rocking chairs have certainly stood the test of time . There is no doubt that rocking chairs have gone a long way, and they have been subjected to various improvements to provide people with greater comfort. Modern rocking chairs may appear in designs that look a lot different from their early counterparts, but they still serve the same purpose and have the same effect.
Varieties. There can be many varieties of padding or rockers cushioning available in a market. The rocker cushioning may range from expensive silk and leather fabric to cotton and cheaper foam padding. If you are looking for some stylish look, with enhanced comfort and décor then choose pure leather padding. The primary advantage of leather padding is that you need not have to worry about its maintenance first and secondly it is easy to clean, but it's surely an expensive treat to have.
The loveseat rocking chair is the perfect complement to the intimate patio. Add one of the wood patio tables for a place to set your drinks or as a footstool and the romantic setting will be perfect. The pieces are individually sold giving way to personal style and giving you the choice of having both a loveseat and individual chair. The double rocker style gives an individual back for each person without giving up the intimacy of a couple. The variety of wood and colors for the double rocker also help make the personal taste attainable.
