Emma Maxwell. Rocking Chair. January 22nd , 2018.
There are different types of rocking chairs available and sold in the market, and it is important to consider what you're looking for so that what you get will be what you need. Thes chairs are the conventional rocking chairs. These are the ones placed inside the home-in bedrooms, libraries, children's rooms, living rooms and dens. These chairs usually have cushions and fabric trimmings that add to the comfort of the chair. These chairs are made of wicker and wood, and can be made to suit the theme of the room they will be placed in. Intricate carvings and designs can add to its aesthetic value. Sometimes, indoor rocking chairs can be chosen just so its design stands out in the room. This way, the rocking chair becomes the defining piece of furniture in the room it is in.
Why does everyone love this particular style of chair? Could it be that they are so comfortable? When you sit in a rocking chair without rocking, the chair automatically rocks backwards until that your center of gravity is found. This has a relaxing benefit with the sitter being kept in an even position. Hence you are relaxed from the word 'Go'.
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.
The natural angle of this chair reduces the stress level on the back to a great extent. Listening to soothing music while moving in the chair can even make you forget the operation that you had recently. The post-operative rocking was found to be highly beneficial if it can be done at a slow but steady rate for at least 40 minutes regularly. The list goes on with new findings but one thing is sure, we can spend thousands of dollars in treating a number of diseases, or we can turn to this simple approach of rocking which in the end can save us a lot. Today, rocking chairs are not just for the elderly, but for anyone who needs a bit of welcome relaxation from a hectic life and who also wants health benefits as well.
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.
