Maybe scientists will discover how rocking chairs can lull even the crankiest grump into serene happiness. But who cares, as long as it works? A classic rocking chair has a magic way of coaxing you to put down your computer and pick up a book, magazine, hobby, or a child. It's impossible to sit in a rocker and not start that slow swaying, the steady rhythm of comfort as assuring as a heartbeat.
Wood rocking chairs feel as good under your hands as they do under your tush. Wood has a natural softness that helps it support your body. They're smooth and strong, with traditional good looks that have you smiling before you hit the chair. Enjoy a natural finish or choose from a great variety of brilliant colors beyond our favorite, antique white.
That contoured seat of a rocker is a thing of beauty on its own, yet you can cover it with a thick cushion for more padded pleasure. Many rocking chairs come with custom-made cushions and thick seat backs so comfortable you almost feel guilty. Almost. Add a padded ottoman that sways with your rocking chair so you can invite your tired feet to come along for the ride.
Whether you hang out in the back yard or the front porch, today's outdoor rocking chairs are better than ever at loving the weather. Aluminum rocking chairs can't rust and they are lightweight, so it's easier to follow the lazy shade. Or go for a painted retro metal rocking chair straight out of the 1950s. If you prefer the look of wood, you'll love the new polywood selection, made of recycled plastics. They have the look, feel, and strength of wood, but don't rot, fade, or splinter. Your behind will thank you.
Once stuck inside the house, wicker rocking chairs can now enjoy the great outdoors too. New poly materials don't dry out, crack, or chip like the natural rattan of old. Some pleasures never change: new outdoor wicker rockers still give you that satisfying squeak when you nestle in.
The grandaddy of all outdoor chairs is the adirondack rocker, and you'll be thrilled with our selection. No chair feels more solid, more spacious, or more peaceful.
