Jodie Gilmore. Rocking Chair. April 26th , 2018.
The delicately crafted wicker weaves are welcome in most home interior themes. The classic elegance of wicker makes it look like an antique piece of furniture that has been inherited from another generation. This is the real beauty of handcrafted wicker. Whether for indoor or outdoor use, wicker has been very popular. The comfortable wicker rocking chairs are sought after by children and adults alike. Whether they are placed indoors or in a well-covered patio or porch, these pieces of furniture are spots of relaxation.
At some point in history rocking chairs arrived in the USA. It would be convenient to link their arrival with that of the 'Mayflower' but they were not heard of until about a hundred years after the pilgrims arrival and it wasn't until the 1800's that American furniture manufacturers saw any merit in their production. When they did, the Salem, Boston and American Windsor rocking chairs were born. These were all popular and were used mostly for sitting in the garden or relaxing on the porch.
For anyone who is a parent or just likes to pass time on the porch, a rocking chair is a must. The swaying back and forth can be so soothing that it will literally put a person to sleep. That's why many expecting mommies will purchase a rocking chair. During last night feedings or disturbances, rocking the child will calm them and they will eventually fall right to sleep. Within minutes, most children will calm down thanks to the motion of a rocking chair. It is definitely a nursery must.
Just as I enjoyed rocking in a children's rocking chair when I was little, so do my children. They are following in the same footsteps that I did when I was little. They not only love to sit with me and rock, but they also enjoy the independence of rocking in their own chair. And children's rocking chairs have come so far from when I was little. At my grandparent's house, it was just your simple brown. Today, children have a multitude of choices. They can choose a classic style in a myriad of colors, or choose one that is more theme based. Whether they are an artist, into sports, animals, or even a royal prince or princess, chances are you will find a children's rocking chair to fit their interests. It's fun to look back in time to when you were little and then to see your own children enjoying the same things you did. It just goes to show you how rocking chairs are timeless, and how people (young and old alike) never get tired of rocking.
A glider rocking chair is very similar to regular ones, but instead of just rocking back and forth, the chair has a gliding motion. The whole chair is hinged on gliders. This can make for an even more comfortable seat, but it means there are more moving parts and is therefore more easily broken. You'll have to decide if you like this kind better and if you do, if it's worth the higher risk of it breaking. Of course you can always repair it and that's not a problem.
