Lorrie Dunn. Rocking Chair. April 14th , 2018.
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.
Today's rocking chairs may also come with an ottoman or a foot stool that rocks or sways along with the rocking chair or glider. This is a relatively new addition to the rocking chair, which contributes to an even more relaxing effect. Padded or cushioned ottomans are the most popular, which allows you to rest your tired and aching feet on a soft surface. Because the swinging ottoman provides an increased comfort, it works perfect for the elderly and pregnant women.
How Are Padded Rocking Chairs Comfortable? Rocking chairs are comfortable and popular because of their simple design and smooth rockers. Rockers are available in various hues and patterns ranging from wooden, leather and plastic. The fabric and materials used in making a rocker chair clearly defines its comfort and flexibility to a person. The choice of rocking chairs may vary from person to person, but it's a commonly accepted notion that a rocking chair is good in terms of comfort and utility when the surface is soft to sit. If it's not soft and smooth in appearance and sitting, then you need to add a pamper yourself with a luxury of padded rocking chairs.
Today's rocking chairs are distinguished by their diverse materials and cutting edge, sometimes outrageous, designs. One of the modern era's most unique was created by Ron Arad in 1990. The single volume rocking arm chair is made of steel that also tilts upward when it is not used. Meanwhile, Peter Opsvik of Norway created the \"gravity balance\" in 1999. This ergonomic rocking chair allows the sitter to relax or stretch through its four positions. Another unique one was created in 1999 by Illka Terho and Teppo Asikaine of Sweden. Known as the \"chip lounger,\" this rocking chair is shaped like a surfboard. In 2001, MAC Sports, USA released the \"malibu\" rocking chair, which can be folded up completely into its own carrying case.
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.
