Rockers, as they sometimes are called, can be placed in different areas of the house that needs a chair. They provide a good place to relax in, and also provide aesthetic flair to a room. It gives a room a homey and a peaceful look without trying too hard or taking up too much space. Having a rocking chair in the patio, veranda, bedroom, library or living room can automatically provide an automatic relaxing getaway without leaving the room. This chair is great for those short afternoon naps, reading or simply relaxing while having a cup of coffee or tea while having a great conversation with a loved one.
Basically the rocking chair has two curved bands of wood or rockers fixed to the bottom of the chair. It contacts the chair with the floor only on two points that allows the occupant of the seat to rock back and forth with the minimum of effort. It is a comfortable chair to sit on even without the push factor - it automatically adjusts with the centre of gravity of the sitter for ergonomic advantage. It relieves stress. Built up on this basic structure are many types of rocking chairs having springs and gliders. Greek and Roman chairs influenced the neo-classical designs. One of the latest Norwegian models can take on four positions.
