When I set out to design the Modern Rocking Chair I gave myself a series of directives: it must be extremely comfortable with no upholstery. It must have a high enough back to allow a tall person to rest their head, it must have a sense of visual delicacy but be strong enough to endure generations of use, and it must be a simple, modern, and original design that departs from the traditional rocking chair form. And, from the feedback I’ve received from the hundreds who’ve sat in this chair, I’m proud to say we’ve hit the mark. A rocking chair is such a dynamic and vital piece for the home. A baby soothed by it’s motion can find themselves decades later rocking their own children and then grandchildren in the same chair. I’m gratified to offer pieces that have a place in the most intimate moments of our lives.
Features: maple cantilevered frame, bent-laminated slats (walnut or cherry) with brass screws.
