Rocking Chair. Friday , April 27th , 2018 - 22:38:01 PM
Michael Thonet a German craftsman made the first 'Bentwood' rocking chair in 1860. This design was unlike others of it's time, it was lightweight and graceful. He used steamed wood which made them very affordable as well as beautiful and had great success with them in Europe. During the 1920's a new style came on the market which made them even more useful, the 'Folding' version, which when used in the garden could be folded up and taken indoors in bad weather. With the arrival of the automobile it was useful for picnics and other outdoor activities. After this, this type of chair virtually 'stood still' until the 1950's when Sam Maloof began making deluxe rocking chairs, which are different again, as their rockers are ski-shaped.
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.
As rocking chairs continue to emerge in various designs, furniture makers also make sure that they become even more comfortable by improving their ergonomic design and features. Because rocking chairs are primarily made out of hard wood, many people would place pillows against the back area and on the seat to make them more comfortable. This gave furniture makers the idea of making upholstered or padded seats and back supports for the rocking chair. To improve ergonomic quality, modern rocking chairs also have a curved back support that follows the natural curve of a person's back.
